  • Race for Citta Style
    "Race for Citta Style"
    Just look at Joseph A. Citta Elementary School's "Citta Style"! The students in our school family are respectful, responsible and exhibit self control. "Citta Style" is Citta Elementary's new positive behavior support in school (PBSIS) program that will officially start in September. The students raised over $3,800 and their very generous PTO decided to match what the students raised for this wonderful program. Students participated in an obstacle course prepared by the PTO to celebrate. The Principal, Mrs. Kennedy and Supervisor of Instruction, Mrs. Brown showed their spirit and support by agreeing to dye their hair with Citta colors if they reached their fundraising goal! Way to go Seahawks. We just love your Citta Style!
