"With her whistle in her hand!"
On August 19, 2008, our school name was selected. It was named after Miss Raquel Peña, a teacher of 37 years. She had also served her country in the United States Navy during World War II and was very active in her community. She strongly believed that every man's work is a portrait of himself and his family. This belief carried on in her work and how she taught. She instilled in her students that every action is considered a reflection on our parents, good family name, and community. We are "Creating a Legacy" here at Peña Elementary by educating our "Our Mighty White Wings".
