Department of Defense Education Activity

Welcome to Barkley Elementary School!

I am excited to begin year six as a member of the DoDEA family and my second year as the leader of Team Barkley. At Barkley, our teachers create daring classrooms where “…rumble with vulnerability, live into our values, brave the uncertain land of trust, and learn to rise when we fall…” (Daring Classrooms, Dr. Brene Brown) when things do not go our way. This year we will continue to forge ahead in the face of the challenges that face our nation and our world. We will continue to follow the CDC aligned DoDEA guidance as it relates to mitigating risks associated with the spread of COVID-19. We will also continue to do our best to keep our stakeholders informed of any information and policy changes that will impact our school community.

In spite of the all of the unknowns we continue to face, of one thing I am sure; at Barkley Elementary School, ALL students, staff, and families matter. As a family we will strive to live our vision of Caring, Believing, and Achieving Beyond Expectations!

Your Principal,

Mrs. Jenaya Parris
