The recent tragic event in Parkland, Florida has understandably created anxiety and concern regarding overall school safety. I want to assure you that the Conejo Valley Unified School District, with the help and support of the Thousand Oaks Police Department, is committed to providing a safe learning environment at all of our schools.
On Saturday, February 24th the annual LA Basin Odyssey of the Mind Regional competition comes to the Conejo! For the second year in a row this tournament will be hosted by CVUSD. There will be 106 teams participating in the day’s event from schools in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles County.
It was a great day for new beginnings at Redwood Middle School today! Thanks to years of planning and hard work, the vision to have a beautiful, permanent Boys & Girls Club facility to serve the Redwood community and students is now one big step closer to fruition.
Over the next seven weeks sixth grade students from across the Conejo will hop on buses and head to the Santa Monica Mountains for three and a half days of learning about the environment at CVUSD’s Outdoor School. There are no classrooms and no desks at Outdoor School, instead students learn about the environment with nature hikes and activities that focus on the California State Standards for 6th grade science.
In a surprise celebration on Tuesday, February 13th Jacqueline Meir of Los Cerritos Middle School received the February Teacher of the Month recognition award! Ms. Meir is a veteran English teacher with 22.5 years as a teacher at Los Cerritos Middle School and 23.5 years total as a teacher with the District.
