Welcome to Tavelli's Site: Due to school closures, our weekly note will be posted here every Friday. A collection of weekly notes and newsletters can be found under News above. Each Monday, homeroom teachers will communicate to parents via email.
Mission Statement: "Tavelli Elementary is a school of academics, character and wellness. Our vision is to ENGAGE students for academic and social success. We will INSPIRE a community of diverse learners through collaboration and accountability so our children SUCCEED in a global society."
Tavelli's motto is "Do what’s right, do your best, and respect others, self, and property." We work constantly to help our Pre-K-5th grade students incorporate these values into their daily lives. Additionally, we have made wellness a priority as studies have shown that fitness and good nutrition improve academic achievement. Tavelli teams up with Healthy Kids Club-UC Health, Lions Club, Otter Cares, the Public Library, the Partnership Center, Smithsonian, and Little Kids Rock to name a few. These organizations provide many opportunities for our students both during and after the school day. In 2012, the Tavelli staff chose to be a STEAM-Focused School to make learning relevant for our students in the 21st century.
Tavelli has been recognized by the Colorado Department of Education as a High Achieving School since 2014. This year Tavelli was honored with the prestigious National Blue Ribbon School Award. Tavelli is one of 349 schools to be recognized in the United States in 2018. We are one of seven PSD schools to earn this honor.
Major Improvement Strategy: Implement a standards-based teaching and learning framework to ensure all students receive effective universal level instruction in all content areas, with emphasis on Tier 2 and Tier 3 instruction.
