About Us

Greetings! I am honored to serve as the principal of Christopher Dena Elementary School. I am also proud to share that our school community continues to move forward with academic and social progress of all our students. The staff at Dena Elementary work collaboratively to educate all students to reach proficient levels of learning, creating life-long critical thinkers and problem solvers who will be college-prepared, career-ready, and ready for the world!
As we continue our focus on student achievement and plan for even greater student accomplishments, we do this in partnership with our students’ first teachers, their parents. We encourage students to read every day, write stories, create art pieces, and work on math skills.
Mighty Eagles LEARN EVERY DAY and TRY OUR BEST. It is my dream that one day, a Mighty Eagle will be the President of the United States of America or at least the principal of Christopher Dena Elementary School.
Dr. R. Salazar, Principal
