Principal's Message

Good Afternoon Doby's Bridge Families,


We've had another wonderful week at The Bridge! Thank you for all of your support throughout this week's Boosterthon. With your generosity, we raised over $28,000. The students also learned valuable character lessons through daily huddles in the areas of Teamwork, Celebration, Courage, Care and Grit. We look forward to seeing our students carryout the lessons learned throughout the year! Please see below for upcoming news at our school regarding:


  • Veterans Day Information
  • School Counselor News
  • Boosterthon
  • FMVA updates


As always, if I can be of any assistance to you or if you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out!


Building the Bridge Together,

Amanda Kubbs

Veterans Day Reverse Parade

While this year looks very different and we are unable to invite families to school for a Veteran's Day breakfast, the staff and students at Doby's Bridge Elementary School want to celebrate and honor our veterans with a reverse parade!


Veteran family members will be able to drive along the car-rider line loop at Doby’s Bridge while their DBES student waves a flag and/or holds a poster honoring their veteran. Students will be spaced 6 feet apart and wear their masks to ensure the health and safety of all participants. Students with siblings will be able to stand together as a family unit. Each grade level will also be creating banners to be visible along the fence as families enter the parade, so that all students have the opportunity to contribute to the celebration and celebrate those family members who are unable to attend. Staff members will be taking photos and recording the event to share with DBES families. We will share some of these moments on social media.


In order for students to participate in the parade- they must have a veteran who will be attending the parade. Please fill out the below Google Form if your child(ren) has a veteran family member who would be able to participate in this reverse parade on Wednesday, November 11th. This opportunity is open to our FMVA students as well. We will share additional details with all participants as the event gets closer.


This form is due by Friday, October 23: https://forms.gle/EfpYbTX3cBfp9gQK9
