An Opportunity to Double Your Impact!

January 23, 2019


Dear Barrie Community,

As we welcome in 2019, it's hard to believe that three years ago our daughter graduated from Barrie. Honestly, where does the time go? As parents, we believe that a solid, well-rounded education that provides our children with the tools to succeed in college and beyond has critical importance. Like you, we expect the educational communities we join to provide the solid foundation our children need to achieve their potential.


Barrie School focuses on academic skills while encouraging the development of self, engagement in the community, and supporting confidence building necessary in today's ever-changing world. Any school would find these goals challenging. As parents of a 2016 graduate, we can attest that Barrie embraces these challenges. We are thrilled to see our daughter thrive in her life post-graduation! She has excelled in college and recently interned for a candidate's 2018 Senate campaign. We feel confident that whatever comes next for her in life, she will find herself ready to rise to the challenge, thanks to Barrie.

Just as Barrie challenged our daughter, we now challenge you! 


During Barrie's 31 Days of Gratitude, we hope you reflect on the impact Barrie has made in the life of your family and take action to show your gratitude. Our appreciation for the school continually grows stronger, and therefore we have made a commitment to match dollar for dollar all donations and pledges* made through February 14th. That means your gift will double in impact for Barrie students this year!

We give thanks that we found this amazing community committed to supporting and nurturing students, and at the same time challenging them to grow into the best version of themselves. Through making this gift to the Barrie Annual Fund, we know that we are strengthening the community that has supported our family. Please join us in showing your gratitude through a gift or pledge to the Barrie Annual Fund.

Gratefully yours,

Alumni Parents, Class of 2016

 We realize that many members of our Barrie community are impacted by the Federal Government's partial shut down. If you are impacted, but would like to participate in the 31 Days of Gratitude, please know that all pledges will also be honored with the matching funds. We want all families to know that we are grateful that they are part of our Barrie family, and we know that by supporting each other through our talents and treasure - we will continue to be a thriving community!
