Above and Beyond
Along with our sponsoring partner, Denny Menholt, the Rapid City Public School Foundation celebrates school district employees who demonstrate excellence every day. Through the Above and Beyond Program, staff, students, and parents may nominate district staff who go “above and beyond,” and 40 winning nomination cards are drawn, typically at a May school board meeting. Each winner receives $50 in prize money.
The 2021-22 school year has been a challenge for staff and students alike, and through the generous additional support of Denny Menholt and a few local individuals, a second Above and Beyond drawing was held in the spring 2022. The first 40 winners were drawn in March, and the next 80 winners were drawn in May. Nomination cards can always be obtained and returned to any school office within the district.
