SASD Community Helping Hands Award

The Community Helping Hands Award recognizes a school district and their non-school community partner for their outstanding collaboration in implementing a successful program, project or activity that has generated significant local community involvement and positively impacted the education of children.



2018 Winner


The Spearfish Foundation for Public Education (SFPE) was formed in 2001 when the Spearfish Public Schools were facing significant financial difficulties.   It was founded to supplement funding for programs lost due to budget cuts and to seek to make Spearfish Public Schools to be the best they could be.  The Foundation provides educational opportunities for students and staff.  With public education facing increasing challenges, the need for public and private sectors of the community to enhance the educational opportunities in the public schools is greater than ever.  SFPE works closely with, but independently from the Spearfish School District.  The goal of this partnership is to allow members of the community to invest in the success of any and all of the classrooms, programs, and activities in Spearfish Schools. The last few years the Foundation has provided the Spearfish School District between $80,000 and $100,000 annually to provide programs and experiences that may not otherwise be available.

We had 5 SASD members as panelists today at the Aspiring School Leaders event in Keystone. They were peppered with many questions and each held their own! Thanks for helping us out at the event.

I am excited to be a part of the inaugural Educators Rising state conference at Southeast Tech in Sioux Falls today. ER is a new organization in SD to encourage and support students thinking about going into education as a career! @EducatorsRising @travislape
