Welcome to Tavelli Elementary School on the Web. We are a S.T.E.A.M. School.
Do what's right, do your best, treat others the way you want to be treated.
The 2014 Duathalon was a success! Thanks for your participation, Tavelli families!

Tavelli Elementary is a school of academics, character, and wellness. Our mission 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 treat others the way you want to be treated," and we constantly work to help our Pre-K-5th grade students incorporate these values into their lives. Wellness is a priority in our school because research supports the fact that fitness and nutrition improve academic achievement. We have an active wellness committee that coordinates activities both during and after the school day. We partner with Poudre Valley Health Systems' Healthy Kids Club, the Lions Club, and Project Smile in coordinating many of these activities, which focus on fitness, health, and nutrition. Special thanks to the Tavelli and Fort Collins community for supporting mill levy and bond items in the last election; this is a determining factor in making our school the best it can be!
