Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is with great excitement that I welcome you back to the 2017-2018 school year at Dr. Manuel C. Barreiro Elementary, an “A” school. As I reflect on last school year, I am so proud of the work done by our students, teachers and parents. I am in awe when I look at the gains our students made academically, but even more amazed at the memories we created. I hope to build on the support and successes of last year and look forward to our continued partnership.

The excitement continues at Dr. Manuel C. Barreiro Elementary as we let our dreams run wild through the Barreiro Oasis. This school year at Dr. Manuel C. Barreiro Elementary, we begin our trek on a new adventure where we will:

  • encounter tough terrains, sharp curves, straight and narrow paths, but we will not turn around; we will continue to trek on towards our destiny.
  • climb the forbidden mountain, while allowing ourselves to slow down and enjoy the story that surrounds MCBE.
  • brave the rapids and return to share the secret of our successes.
  • learn, grow, explore, and expand our horizons.

Rest assured that the safari guides of MCBE will work hand in hand and side by side to support and develop motivated children to believe they will excel. Whether using a map to serve as our guide or simply following the pathway of hoof prints, the destination will be simply “AMAZING.”

In the words of Walt Disney, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” I pledge to you, our parents, to foster that curiosity that lies within each beautiful student at MCBE and simply serve as his/her Head Safari Guide.

And remember…
Dr. Manuel C. Barreiro Elementary…Where We Let Our Dreams Run Wild!
