Raise the Paddle 2024: Enhancements to Safety, Security, and Student Health

At the 2024 Bullis Gala, we are calling on our generous community to “Raise the Paddle” for enhancements to safety, security, and student health on the Bullis campus.

The money raised will be used to comprehensively bolster security and augment student health access throughout campus to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and families. The project will include a new permanent Safety and Security structure at the main entrance on Falls Road, an upgraded security camera system, the addition of a second nurse who will be stationed in North Hall, and an upgraded athletics training facility. In addition to these enhancements, a security task force is working throughout the 2023-24 school year to identify ways to supplement the safety measures we currently have in place.

The safety and health of our students, faculty, families, and all who visit Bullis is paramount. With the addition of strategically implemented resources, our Safety and Security team and student health professionals will be even better equipped to assure everyone in our learning community feels safe and well on the Bullis campus.

What is Raise the Paddle?

Our annual Raise the Paddle feature during the live auction segment of the Gala provides an opportunity for the community to support an important need at Bullis. It’s a fun way to bid to directly support Bullis’s programs. You don’t have to outbid anyone, just raise your paddle and join in! Everyone has a chance to participate as we work together to support something great for Bullis.
