A message of peace, respect, and harmony for the Dysart community

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for everyone in our Dysart community who is committed to building bridges of peace, respect and harmony.

I am humbled by so many examples of courageous people doing extraordinary things to right the wrongs in our society; who advocate for, and who protect, our human rights; who open previously closed doors for civil discourse; and most of all, who ensure each and every individual can reap the full rewards of their education, hard work and talents.

I am saddened to think that even one Dysart student or employee has ever been victimized by hatred. We here in Dysart believe in, and are committed to, providing a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for learning and working. If there are ways we can do better, I invite you to responsibly communicate with me so that we can work together for a better future.

The Dysart District and surrounding communities of Surprise, El Mirage, Youngtown, Waddell and Luke Air Force Base are, indeed, extraordinary places to live, to learn and to work. I stand with our diverse community to say that the work of ensuring peace and togetherness is never done - rather, it is what we, collectively, must each do every hour of every day. I wish you faith, hope and love. Faith and hope for safe and healthy times ahead, and above all, love for peace in the hearts of all.

Sincerely, Quinn R. Kellis, Ed.D.
