    Evelia Perea

    My name is Evelia Perea, and I am very honored and proud to serve as your new principal for Denker Ave. Elementary School.  I look forward to working with our community, parents, and students to make Denker Avenue the best place for our wonderful students to learn and grow. Thank you for all our families who despite so many challenges including COVID -19 have many successes to celebrate. Denker Avenue had one of the strongest distance learning programs in the district, a wonderful hybrid program the last two months of the school year. We welcome all our new families and returning families and look forward to offering valuable educational opportunities for academic excellence.
