Greetings from Denton Avenue Elementary School

Dear Families,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I welcome you to Denton Avenue Elementary. I am honored to be the principal of this incredible community of learners. Whether you are a new Denton family, or a returning family, I am confident that this year will be a rewarding one for all of us. Our commitment to instilling a love of learning, encouraging students to grow socially, academically and emotionally; providing a safe, secure and positive learning environment for every child, as well as engaging in a strong partnership with families are some of the many reasons why Denton Avenue is such a wonderful place for children to learn and grow.

Denton is filled with teachers and staff who are life-long learners themselves. This passion for learning ensures that students have an opportunity to learn and grow in an environment that fosters deep understanding and builds upon each child’s individual strengths. Our goal is to build the strong educational foundation that enables students to be their best. By enhancing students’ creativity and critical thinking skills through multiple disciplines: art, music, language immersion, open ended mathematical thinking, physical activity and differentiated, engaging curriculum, we here at Denton, tap into the development of the whole child. We give students an opportunity to cultivate a strong sense of character, citizenship and community that will enable them to be happy and successful.

At Denton Elementary, we believe in a framework for great schools that incorporates strong parent-school ties. We thank our extraordinary PTA for their efforts to provide many opportunities for family involvement and offer a variety of events for our students. We build upon the trust and understanding that we all have the same goal in mind: educating our children through modeling excellence so that they can be citizens of the world who have a true sense of commitment, teamwork, and responsibility.

The time spent here at Denton Avenue Elementary is meaningful. It is important work, and we feel privileged to have the opportunity to partner with both you and your child(ren) this school year. I look forward to getting to know all of you. Thank you for welcoming me into the Herricks community!
