Principal’s Message


Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at G.O. Bailey Primary.  I am EXPECTING GREAT THINGS! G.O. Bailey is a highly distinguished school with a long legacy of remarkable administrators, faculty members, students, and families. So, it is with great pride that I am entering my third year as principal.  I look forward to serving and working with all GOB students, faculty, families, and community members.


I invite you to browse through the GOB website and learn about our impressive school. The purpose of our website is to provide all of our stakeholders with an opportunity to become better informed on the development and future of our school. G. O. Bailey is a warm and welcoming school which offers a safe, nurturing, and challenging learning environment.


G.O. Bailey’s faculty and staff are committed and highly qualified educators who have big expectations for all students. G. O. Bailey teachers and staff are dedicated to meeting the individualized needs of all students and provide learning experiences which will help students achieve their greatest level of academic success. It is our goal to provide the very best learning opportunities across the curriculum. This will be accomplished through the use of best teaching practices and strategies implemented in a positive learning environment. As a school, we are continuously engaged in staff development and collaborations related to student work to maximize learning for all.


At Bailey, we believe character is who you are and what you do when no one else is watching. It is the goal of our character education program to teach students lifelong skills enabling them to grow to be caring and responsible citizens. Furthermore, we utilize PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) as our primary strategy for setting students up for success in the classroom.


Home-school partnership is vital to student success. Parents, families, students, teachers, staff, and administrators are all on the same team at G.O. Bailey. Teamwork and effective communication is the key! I invite and encourage you to be involved in your child’s learning experience at G.O. Bailey. Our School Governance Team (SGT) and Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) support our school, students, and the academic programs offered throughout the year. Also, we have a parent involvement coordinator, Lisa Daughtrey, who facilitates the connection between home and school. We invite you to become involved and get to know our dedicated staff, our outstanding programs, and our commitment to educational excellence. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of students. I invite you to visit our school! Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns. Remember, EXPECT SOMETHING GREAT!
