SVVSD high school students pay surprise visit to former teachers to say thanks

“They really just go beyond just teachers. They’re someone you can look up to and someone who can… change your life.”

This is how Mollie Hervey, a senior at Frederick High School, described the role of teachers in a video the St. Vrain School District produced to mark the start of Teacher Appreciation Week on Monday.

Ten SVVSD high school students paid surprise visits to former middle and elementary school teachers throughout the last days of April to express their gratitude in words and through music, according to Benjamin Kalb, director of communications and digital content.
