Legacy Awards 

We all know it takes a village to raise and educate a child. In Eden Prairie Schools countless individuals positively impact the lives of our children and the commitment to excellence of our District, many of whom go unrecognized.


The FEPS Legacy Awards were established in 2008 to honor outstanding teachers, staff, students, volunteers and alumni. FEPS believes it is important to honor those who contribute to the success and reputation of our school district. Legacy Awards are given to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the students and families in our schools and community.


Thank you for making me feel so special and for honoring the great work that all teachers do! I feel very fortunate to work in a school district that is so supportive of staff ... one more reason I love my job. The celebration was beautiful and thoughtful - thank you for giving us a moment to pause, reflect and celebrate.
~ Karen Brettingen, Teacher of the Year, May 2014
