It's Teacher Appreciation Week, and during Monday's school board meeting, Wichita school teachers were recognized.

Dr. Alicia Thompson commented on the struggles of the past year and commended the teachers for all that they have done.

"We have been through a lot, and we want to recognize you for all of the things you have had to do for our students, and for each other," Thompson said.

Various events are planned for the teachers throughout the week.

Also during Monday's meeting, the board recognized the Class of 2021. While the students weren't able to attend in person, representatives from each high school recognized the senior class scholarship recipients.
