Dream Team Fitness
Dream Team is a before school reading program that empowers our 4th and 5th graders with leadership opportunities in tutoring K-3rd grade students in math and reading.  At the start of each day we have a 30 minute fitness/playtime for all students.  This allows our students to be involved in 30 extra minutes of movement everyday before they head off to work on their math and reading skills. 

Dream Team Hip Hop 
Our Dream Team has another great movement opportunity this year with the help of Ms. Sparks we have added Hip Hop to our mornings activities.  The kids are having a great time learning new dances and performing them on Fridays mornings. 

Healthy Heros and Kindness Heros
This is a program sponsored by Healthy Kids Club that rewards and recognizes our students/staff for making healthy choice as well demonstrating acts of kindness throughout our school. Student and staff can nominate individuals in each area.  At the end of each month we will have a drawing and the winners will be announced to the school and receive a t shirts and certificate.  This is our chance to catch Tavelli Tigers doing great things at our school.

Healthy Hearts Program
The Healthy Hearts program brought to us by UC Health Center is a comprehensive program for all 5th graders on healthy eating, exercise, heart health and much more.  This program is followed up by free healthy screenings for all Tavelli 5th graders and staff.   Thank you UC Health.
