With school closures, this year’s teacher appreciation week was far from the usual routine of thank you cards from classes and Starbucks gift cards adorned with sketches of apples. Despite the lack of in-person celebration, Conejo Valley Unified School District took to social media to show their appreciation for our teachers.
TOHS ASB put together a video to show their gratitude to their teachers.
“Thank you so much for all your hard work,” junior Olivia Harrington said in the opening of the video.

Finally, younger CVUSD students did not skip out on the appreciation either. STARS academy students made chalk art for their teachers in front of the school.
