Barriere Elementary School has been doing some fundraising to assist in setting up a new playground for which they have already received a grant of $25,000.  The school’s most recent fundraiser was the silent auction held on Dec. 20, at the Annual Barriere Elementary Christmas Concert.

The final total from the auction was just over $2,700, which will go a long way to helping this project be completed.

Leesa Genier, president of the Barriere Elementary Parent Advisory Council, thanked the community for their very generous support, “We were overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity.”
