Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at G.O. Bailey Elementary School.  I cannot wait to meet all of the students and families of G.O. Bailey! I am honored to be your new principal. My hope is that all children will LOVE coming to school! G. O. Bailey will provide a nurturing learning environment that is positive, safe, caring, as well as a fun place to learn and grow. 

I would like to encourage you to browse through the updated GOB website and learn more about our school as well as review important “Back to School” information. We are also excited to announce the new app for Tift County Schools where you will be able to access documents, events, news updates , and emergency notifications. Download the app on Android: or iPhone:

G.O. Bailey is an outstanding place for learning. Our faculty and staff are committed to our students. I am excited to join and lead a great team where teachers, staff, students, and families are actively engaged in student success. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year where we will relentlessly pursue a culture of excellence!

I hope that you enjoy the last few weeks of summer and I look forward to meeting you all soon! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. 

We are GOB. We are respectful, responsible, safe, and ready to learn!
