History:

Our school was constructed in 1969 and we received a kindergarten wing addition in 2009.

Gale-Bailey Elementary School was named after two educators - Emma Gale and Esther Bailey. Both educators lived in Marbury and died in 1961 in a car crash after a bee flew in their window while driving home. Gale died instantly and Bailey died five months later from accident-related injuries.

Gale began teaching in Charles County in 1929 and was working at Indian Head Elementary School when she died. Bailey served as principal of Pisgah and Marbury elementary schools before becoming a first-grade teacher at Indian Head.

Vision:

Our vision of Gale-Bailey Elementary School is to inspire a passion for learning and to work respectfully together as a community.

 

Mission: 

Gale-Bailey Elementary School will be an exemplary learning community. We challenge ourselves to be active and excited about learning. Students, staff, parents, and community members share the success of our students by being involved in instruction and student achievement.
