NEWS! The Community Works with Denker Avenue!
Recently, Gardena High School's JROTC, Torrance Troop 719, and Torrance Troop 683 have worked to help make Denker Avenue an even more wonderful place for all of us. Gardena High School JROTC worked with Junior Achievement and our K-3 students this year to learn about life skills, such as managing money and social studies lessons. Torrance Troop 719, under Mitchell Fujimura's leadership built the redwood tree boxes that line the front of our school on 162nd Street and built gardening boxes for our Kindergarten students. Torrance Troop 683, under Russell Okamura's leadership beautified the gardens and added an herb garden for our students to use. We with to thank them for their contribution to our school community!
