Best Year Ever for the Barron Park Auction

Thank you, thank you, thank you Barron Park! With your help (time, donations, bidding, love) we had the best year ever for the Auction. We raised approximately $56,000 during the event. This compares with $43k last year and $29k the prior year. The event couldn't have been possible without the tireless hours from the Auction Committee, the support of the Teachers & Staff with their amazing Teacher Experiences, our donors, sponsors and the the Barron Park community that supported the event. If you were able to attend Springtime in Paris we hope you had a great time. The funds raised will go directly back to your children through the wonderful programs PTA supports.

Traffic Safety

For the safety of all children, please DRIVE SLOWLY and LOOK CAREFULLY. The driveway is divided into two lanes: the RIGHT lane is for drop off and pick up only; whenever possible, pull up all the way behind the first six parking stalls so that others may pull in behind you; drivers must remain in their vehicles. The LEFT lane is for drivers who intend to park and go into the school. Please review the traffic safety map.
