National School Counseling Week

Message from the SuperintendentDear Canutillo community,

We had a great week as more of our students have returned physically to school. We welcome their return and continue to promote safety with the 3 Ws - wear a mask, wash your hands and watch your distance. And don’t forget that whether you are at school in-person or learning remotely, learning expectations remain high. So, show up and stay engaged. #CanutilloEveryDay

It’s also National School Counseling Week. We'd like to thank all of our counselors for supporting students during these unprecedented times. The theme this year, “School Counselors: All in for All Students,” focuses attention on the important contribution of school counselors in helping students achieve success.

The counseling department recognizes the morale on campuses and the major issues that many teachers and staff have encountered due to the pandemic, along with parents. Therefore, in partnership with our mental health leaders throughout the community and our communication department, we are kicking off National School Counseling Week Self Care & Mental Health Awareness Web Series. It is a series of videos that offer advice and helpful tools on mental health and overall wellness. Click here to see.

In 2019, Canutillo ISD designated February as "Ending the Silence Month” in partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). This February, we continue our District's support of mental health. Ending the Silence Month aims to raise community awareness concerning mental health. Our team of counselors is always ready to aid our students.

I know that many members of our CISD community are excited about the Super Bowl (Packers should be playing), which will be played this Sunday. This event is expected to bring people together, as is the tradition for sports fans all over the country. However, this year, we urge you to gather wisely. Only those you live with should attend the party or if you wish to include others, experts are recommending you do so virtually.

Have a great weekend, enjoy the game, and stay safe.

Dr. Pedro Galaviz
Superintendent of Schools
