Tavan Turkey Bowl Next Tuesday
The Tavan Turkey Bowl is a yearly tradition where the entire student body of Tavan walks to Arcadia High School for a flag football game. Tavan 5th graders earn their chance to play on the "big field!" at Arcadia High School while the entire school cheers them on! After the game, the Arcadia Titan Football Team comes out to sign autographs and encourage our future Titans to keep up the good work. It's a great community event - one that shows how unique our Arcadia Learning Community truly is.  READ MORE ยป
