1 Susanne Johnson Head-of-School We are delighted to gather for the 50th Anniversary Fire & Ice Gala to honor our past and celebrate our future! We recognize that the faces and facilities of Barnesville School have changed considerably since 1969, but the culture of the School remains constant. In tune with our peaceful, beautiful setting, we remain committed to providing our students an environment that is safe, supportive, and nurturing, where each is known and is encouraged to take intellectual risks, become independent and self-reliant, and enjoy the gifts of childhood. We are steadfast in our mission of joy, support, and excellence. The school has always had a strong commitment to diversity, including socioeconomic diversity. We believe that our students' experience is made better and our community stronger through this dedication. To honor this foundational principal, I am pleased to announce that our special appeal this year will be for financial aid. It remains a priority that our exceptional program is accessible to those families with demonstrated financial need. Donations in our "raise-a-paddle" during the live auction will go directly to tuition assistance. Please join me in supporting this much needed funding. As is our tradition, many members of the Barnesville community have dedicated countless hours to make tonight a special recognition of our 50th anniversary. Our Gala Chair, Kellie Hodges, along with the Vice-Chairs, Kim Abbott and Claudia Coots, have given tirelessly to make this year's Gala a huge success. By their side was Robin Snider, Director of Special Events & Marketing Associate, who worked diligently to ensure that this is a fabulous event. Please support their hard work and dedication by bidding high and often! I thank you, in advance, for your continued support of Barnesville. Time and time again, we have been overwhelmed by our community's generosity and for that I am most grateful. After all, it's the "Barnesville way!" Susanne Johnson Head of School
