Cleveland Cavs’ Game Entertainment Crew Visits Kelly Elementary

The Cleveland Cavaliers were in Pittsburgh to take on the Dallas Mavericks in a preseason exhibition game at the University of Pittsburgh’s Peterson Events Center October 20. That afternoon, the Cavaliers Game Entertainment crew—the Cavalier Girls dance team, hip hop troupe the Scream Team, and mascot Moondog—made a special visit to students at Kelly Elementary to demonstrate how much fun learning can be!

 

As part of the NBA’s Week of Service, and in partnership with the White House’s  United We Serve  initiative, the visit was the Cavaliers way of saying thank you to the Pittsburgh community for their support and for welcoming the team to their city the past several years for preseason games. So far, Kelly Elementary School is the only school that the Game Entertainment Crew has visited in the Pittsburgh area.

 

During the visit, the Cavalier Girls and Scream Team interacted with students in a number of different ways, visiting classrooms to read, exercise and have fun while exposing the students to Cavaliers’ programs such as  Read to Achieve,   Fit As A Pro,   Head of the Class  and  All Star Kids. These programs encourage students to develop a life-long love for reading, develop exercise and well-balanced eating habits, and encourage students and teachers alike to stand out and make a difference in other people’s lives.

Students also took part in a hip-hop dance clinic, and enjoyed performances by the Cavalier Girls and Scream Team. One lucky student and teacher were also awarded tickets to the game later that evening.
