Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is with great excitement that I welcome you back to the 2019-2020 school year at Dr. Manuel C. Barreiro Elementary, an “A” school once again. We achieved our goal, a three peat, three years with a consecutive “A.” And not only did we achieve our “A” once again, we achieved 532 points, an increase of 51 points in our school grade. The highest performing school year in the history of Dr. Manuel C. Barreiro Elementary. As I reflect on last school year, I am so proud of the outstanding 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 MCBE’s Wide World of Sports, Where TEAMWORK makes the DREAM work. There is always something magical about playing and working at Dr. Manuel C. Barreiro Elementary.

  • At the ECC, we’ll be combining our love for learning with soccer. We will score a goal for learning!
  • First grade will be joining the main campus and hitting homeruns with the help of their fabulous teachers.
  • Second Grade will jump through any hurdle on the track with precision and speed while making it to the finish line in record time.
  • Third Grade will maneuver the hockey puck with care and accuracy scoring a goal each and every time.
  • Fourth Grade will dunk all the grade level standards improving their score from quarter to quarter.
  • Fifth Grade will set and break records on the football field with the most touchdowns in the history of MCBE.

Rest assured we will train and condition our bodies and minds for all sporting and academic events at MCBE’s Wide World of Sports. Our accomplishments will prove to be a journey not a destination.

In the words of Walt Disney, “First, think. Second, believe. Third, dream. And finally, dare.”

Once again, I pledge to you, our parents, to foster that curiosity that lies within each beautiful student at MCBE.
