Welcome Letter

August 2019

Dear McAnnulty Families,

My name is Heatherlyn Wessel and I am excited to introduce myself as the principal of McAnnulty Elementary School.  I am honored to welcome our new Kindergarten families and welcome back our first grade families!  I’m excited and eager to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.   

Not only am I thrilled to begin working with your children, but I look forward to the work we will do together.  I am excited to see your children through your eyes. I cannot wait to share with you the great things they do throughout their days here at McAnnulty Elementary. 

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established in the Baldwin-Whitehall School District by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.  Our focus this year will be on social emotional learning, personalized education for each student as the implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS).

Again, I am elated to have the opportunity to serve as Principal at McAnnulty and to work with the amazing students and talented staff of this district to develop lifelong learners.  Please refer to the district website bwschools.net, McAnnulty School for our Back to School information including student supply lists.

Looking forward to beginning a new school year with you and your students!


Mrs. Heatherlyn Wessel
