Fundraising and fun bring community together

Each year, Barrie School hosts its annual community celebration and benefit auction to bring our community together to raise critical funds for the Barrie School Annual Fund.  

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 350360 students, we have a proud, and long-standing commitment of honoring our founder's vision, through our current mission and values.

In April 2022, the Barrie School community came together to celebrate the 90th Anniversary for an evening in the Enchanted Forest. This magical night brought us back together in person, fostering connections both old and new. We celebrated our love for Barrie School by raising funds through paddle raises, live and silent auctions. Together we raised $58K, which will be used to support  Classroom Enrichment, Professional Development and Faculty Innovation, Tuition Assistance, and Health and Safety.

From the bidders to our sponsors, auction donors to attendees, vendors to volunteers, we are so grateful to everyone who helped us mark this important milestone. 

We look forward to seeing you at our next benefit auction, March 4, 2023!

Help Keep Our Flags Flying!

There over 75 country flags displayed along Barrie Campus Drive. Each year, the flags are replaced as they become worn and tattered. With a flag sponsorship of $30, you can help keep our flags flying! You may denote a specific country flag or contribute to the care and replacement of all of our flags. Flag sponsorships will be available for purchase at our next event!

Fundraising and fun, all rolled into one!
