Heart At Work

The HPISD “Heart At Work” Award

Education requires compassionate adults meeting the needs of children. The “Heart At Work” award in HPISD provides us a chance to recognize and celebrate those staff members who make the well-being of our students a priority. 

All employees of HPISD are eligible to be recognized for being "Heart At Work." Each staff member recognized will receive a certificate and "Heart" pin to honor their service to others.

One professional and one paraprofessional employee from each campus and the District office will be honored at the annual district awards banquet.

This award is generously provided by the Highland Park Education Foundation’s William P. Clements, Jr. Endowment established by the Clements Foundation in 2018.

“Heart  At Work” Award Nomination Information:

We are now accepting nominations for the current school year, and appreciate your participation. We are looking for the “unsung heroes” who are going the “extra mile” in serving our students, staff, families and community. In the spring, the District “Heart At Work” award committee will review all those recognized on each campus and choose one professional, and one paraprofessional from each campus and the District office to be honored and awarded $500 at the annual staff recognition banquet. 

"Heart At Work" nominations can be submitted by teachers, administrators, staff, students, parents, families and anyone interested in the well-being of our HPISD community. Candidates cannot be nominated by relatives.
