Fundraising and fun bring community together
Each year, Barrie School hosts its annual community celebration and auction to bring our community together to raise critical funds for the Barrie School Annual Fund.
On April 30 from 6:00-10:00pm, the Barrie School community will come together to celebrate our 90th Anniversary. Formerly known as For the Love of Barrie, all are invited to our Enchanted Forest, to help us mark this important milestone. For 90 years, Barrie School has inspired excellence, intrinsic motivation, and responsibility through innovation in learning. From our beginnings as the Peter Pan School on Allison Street, NW with 13 students, to our current, 45-acre campus in Silver Spring with over 360 students, we have a proud, and long-standing commitment of honoring our founder's vision of hands-on learning, student-centered instruction and active learning at all levels.
All proceeds from this year’s auction will be used to support Classroom Enrichment, Professional Development and Faculty Innovation, Tuition Assistance, and Health and Safety in COVID programs.

Help Keep Our Flags Flying!

Flag sponsorships will be available for purchase on April 27 in the auction catalog.
