The Future is Now

Message from the SuperintendentDear Canutillo community,

Events outside our community can often help us gain an important perspective. These occurrences can prompt us to count our relative blessings and good fortunes.

One need only watch the world news for one hour. Reporters chronicle devastating tornadoes in the southern states, which destroyed homes and took lives. They also provide updates on the catastrophic war in Ukraine, where cities are burned and innocent civilians killed. Unvaccinated people in third world countries continue to suffer and die from COVID. Our hearts and prayers go out to all those impacted by these tragedies.

Perspective gained by knowledge of these unfortunate events should provide a renewed sense of duty to help our fellow men and women, regardless of where they reside on this beloved earth. These tragedies should also instill a deep sense of gratitude in our hearts for the peace and prosperity we enjoy every minute of the day.
