Who is ready for fall? Join the PTA for our Fall Fest at Chubby’s Pumpkin. Chubby’s will donate 10% from every purchase made on Oct 18 for the entire day. The PTA will be there from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM celebrating with the DJ, selling spirit wear, and spending time with friends. We hope to see everyone there for a fun fall night!
The Penny War is back! This friendly competition funds the online education resource, BrainPOP, for every GBI classroom. This fun contest will take place during lunch hours October 15-19th. Participating in this event is as simple as donating your spare coins to your child’s classroom. There will be two winners, one for the most points and one for the most money. The winning classrooms will enjoy a pizza party with Mrs. Martin!
The Book Nook is looking for volunteers for the 2018-2019 school year.
What is the Book Nook?
The Book Nook is a quiet place for students to read when they are finished with their lunch and want a quieter place to spend their remaining lunch time.
What are the Volunteer’s Responsibilities?
Volunteers supervise the students until it is time for them to return to their class. Volunteers may use the quiet time in any manner they choose, such as reading, paperwork, or catching up on emails.
What are the hours?
The Book Nook is open during lunch, from 11:00-12:45.

All new Spirit Wear for the 2018-2019 is now available, and will be sold at all Open Houses. Cash, check, and credit cards will be accepted as payment. Order forms can also be printed out and sent to school with your student.
Parents and students of Great Bridge Intermediate School are invited to Open House to meet their child’s teacher. This is an opportunity to hear classroom expectations and individual supply needs from their teachers prior to the first day of the new school year. The Open House schedule is staggered by grade level to accommodate parking needs. The schedule for the 2018-19 school year is as follows:
3rd Grade – 8/30 @ 6pm
4th Grade – 8/29 @ 6pm
5th Grade – 8/29 @ 7:15pm
As we rapidly approach the end of another school year, the PTA would like to thank you, the parents, for your donations and support. Your generous contributions has allowed the PTA to put nearly $5,000 back into Great Bridge Intermediate School throughout the school year. This money has been spent on:
- 5th Grade End-of-the-Year Party
- Bookshelves for the library
- School Improvements
- Student Aid
- Teacher Appreciation
In addition, the PTA has made a $14,000 donation to GBI to be used for the purchase of Chromebooks for student use.
Without the support of parents, the PTA would not be able to give back to the students and teachers the way we do. THANK YOU!
The end of the school year is rapidly approaching. Here are a few things parents need to know about the grade level End of the Year Parties.
3rd Grade – Monday, June 11th
4th Grade – Tuesday, June 12th
5th Grade – Wednesday, June 13th
11:45am – 1:00pm
If you plan to attend your child’s party, please email the class room parent ahead of time. This allows Mrs. Watts to expedite the check-in process.
DO NOT PARK in the bus parking lot! Please park along Wildcat Way, the GBI parking lot, and the GBHS parking lots.
