Principal’s Message


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at G.O. Bailey Elementary. We have been counting down the days to when students could return to school! G.O. Bailey is a highly distinguished school with a long legacy of remarkable administrators, faculty members, students, and families. It is with honor and ‘Blue Devil’ pride that I am entering my 6th year as principal. Furthermore, I am very fortunate to work alongside a distinguished Assistant Principal, Mr. Juvencio Elizalde. We, as a team, 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. 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. We 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.


At Bailey, we value relationships and results! Student behavior and attendance is a direct impact on student growth and learning outcomes. We utilize PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) as our primary strategy for setting students up for success in the classroom. Our PBIS school slogan is: We are GOB. We are respectful, responsible, safe, and ready to learn!


Home-school partnership is vital to student success. Parents, families, students, teachers, staff, and administrators are all on the same team. Teamwork and effective communication is the key! With online and hybrid learning models, we must stand together as a unified team. We are all in this together!

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of students. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns. Remember, we are ONE Team, ALL in: Achieve, Learn, Lead!
