Principal's Page

"Welcome to MacGregor Elementary.  My name is Brad Pennell and I am honored to be the Principal at MacGregor.  I was born and raised in Bay City and am a 1995 graduate of Bay City Central High School.  I went on to attend Central Michigan University and graduated with a degree in Secondary Education, majoring in English/Language Arts and minoring in Physical Education.  I am also the proud father of my 4-year old son.  I have had the privilege of serving the families and students in this district in many different ways, since 2001. I began my educational career as a teacher at Wenona High School and have since taught in classrooms at Handy Middle School, Central High School, and Western Middle School.  For the past 5 school years, I have served as Assistant Principal at Western Middle School.  In addition to classroom teaching and administration, I have also coached football and basketball at Bay City Central and football at Handy Middle School. 

I take pride in Bay City and understand the responsibility that goes along with my job title. MacGregor is a school with a fantastic group of enthusiastic, passionate, and dedicated staff with one goal in mind: Doing what is best for kids. The children of MacGregor represent the future of our community and I look forward to working with staff, parents and students to promote academic achievement, social well-being, career readiness and developing life-long learners.  I feel strongly that the success of any school is determined by the relationships among the students, families and staff members.  My door is always open.  I look forward in getting to know each and every person involved in making MacGregor a special place to learn and grow."
