(Sioux Falls, SD) — Ben Reifel Middle School students are giving back to their school community and local and state leaders. The students served a special Thanksgiving meal Friday at lunchtime to students and teachers, along with Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken and Governor Kristi Noem. The meal is a district tradition that has been going for 12 years. It started when teacher Desiree Burggraaf was teaching at Axtell Park Middle School for four years, and continued for seven years at George McGovern Middle School. She works with students in the Reach Independence with Structured Education program and is in her first year at BRMS.
