Dear Citta Seahawk Family,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! While this year will be unique in the challenges that we each face, I know that our school community will continue to work together to ensure that our students’ academic, emotional, and social growth is maximized while we all stay connected, no matter the physical distance between us.
At Citta Elementary School, we believe in the importance of creating a safe, supportive, and equitable culture of excellence. The emotional and physical safety of our students and staff is always paramount, but this year messages of safety will permeate everything that we do. Our school community always pulls together to support one another, but we will be closely monitoring the need for additional and targeted academic, social, and emotional support this year and beyond. We have spent our summer preparing to meet the diverse needs of our students and staff. The support that we provide will help to ensure equitable outcomes and opportunities for our students. The belief in a culture of excellence stems from our expectations of ourselves, one another, and our students. We know that every student that is provided an emotionally and physically safe environment in conjunction with appropriate support will reach the highest pinnacle of success.
This year, our school-wide theme is “The Year of OpportUNITY”. Despite the fact that we may not be physically present with our entire class, every student has tremendous gifts to share with our school community. We will be hosting virtual community building events, seeking out our students’ input to improve our school and connect with one another, and participating in school-wide daily announcements, all to bridge the distance between home and school.
Citta Seahawks, with style we fly! We will continue to spread our wings and soar high!
