Support Wildcat Athletics!

GREAT BRIDGE ATHLETICS - IPTAY STICKER IMAGEThe athletic program at Great Bridge High School has been recognized as one of the best in the Commonwealth for decades. In an effort to maintain high standards and support our athletic program, the IPTAY program was established to provide financial resources to Wildcat athletic programs.

Please read the IPTAY letter from our principal, Mr. Jeff Johnson, which outlines how you can become a supporter today!

Also – back by popular demand – all IPTAY supporters will receive a 4 inch vinyl sticker (see image at right) along with a note of our appreciation. Display this decal on your tumbler, automobile, or anywhere to show your Wildcat Pride!
