Rapid City elementary school hosts recognition ceremony


The staff at one KOTA Territory elementary school is doing its part to make the student body feel more like a community.

Wednesday morning, Robbinsdale Elementary hosted an Oyate ceremony – recognizing students who excel in a number of categories including: academics, citizenship, and principal pride.

Music is an important part of this monthly event. Students and staff say it creates a welcoming environment and leads to open lines of communication.

"You get together and let all your talking out, and share what you want to talk about, and we sing these songs just to have fun and just let loose," said Hailey Hofmaier, Robbinsdale Student President.

"It just helps kids realize that if they do something good, they will get recognized for that, and it gives them something to kind of grow toward," said Heidi Long-Lind, Robbinsdale Music Teacher.

Staff say one of the most important recognition categories is academic improvement.

These assemblies take place one a month.
