A letter from your new principal


Dear WES Families,


I am so excited to be joining the Wendell family as your new principal!  I’ve heard such wonderful things about the Wendell community and I am eager to join you on the journey of learning!


Here’s a little bit about me.  I have served as the Principal at Rolesville Elementary for the past 9 years.  Prior to that, I was an Assistant Principal in both Wake County and New York City Schools.  My total years in education are about 29.  I am a Mom to 2 great kids, a dog and a cat.  In my free time, I enjoy attending my kids sporting events, reading and gardening.


If you would like to contact me, my email address is


I am looking forward to meeting all of you in the next few weeks!

 Ms. “P”



As always, thanks to all of our great parents that assist us with the educating of a wonderful group of students here at Wendell Elementary School.
