Welcome to Great Bridge High School

Educational Bosses Week – May 20-24, 2019

"Leaders become GREAT not because of their power but because of their ability to empower others." - John MaxwellHelp us celebrate our Administrative Team! We were blown away by the student and parent responses for Teacher Appreciation Week. Now – let’s send our Administrator’s some positive feedback! Great Bridge High School is fortunate to have 5 individuals who serve as Administrators. As Principal, Mr. Johnson is THE boss – but he couldn’t do what he does without the support from his team – Mrs. Haskins, Mr. Carter, Mr. Brown, and Mrs. Black!

Please send your messages of appreciation and praise for our administrative team through this form! All messages will be sent to our Administrators next week and we may amplify your message on our social media platforms!

Important information about prom, graduation, and other end-of-the-year senior events and opportunities will be discussed. In addition, the Senior Class officers and sponsor, Ms. Manon Romash, created a  Senior Newsletter highlighting important information. 

Cap & Gowns

Seniors should have already ordered their Cap and Gown from Balfour. If you or your senior has not yet ordered their cap and gown – please do so as soon as possible on Balfour’s website. There are late fees!

Graduation announcements, accessories and apparel will ship directly to the address provided with any order already submitted to Balfour. Caps and Gowns were distributed April 9 & 10, 2019 during all lunches to seniors. There will be an additional pick up date scheduled in May (TBA) if your senior missed their opportunity to pick up their Balfour order on the April dates.
