Mr. Matt Green, Principal

My name is Matt Green, and I am in my 24th year in Pekin District 108. I spent seven years at Edison Junior High as a teacher and assistant principal, ten years at Wilson Intermediate (four as assistant principal and six as principal), and this is my seventh year as principal at L.E. Starke Primary School. I am honored to be part of this student-centered district, and can think of no more noble profession to be a part of! Helping to educate your children – academically and behaviorally – is a tremendous privilege and responsibility. I have four children - ages 6 to 18- and I know first-hand how important education is in their lives!

At Starke, we take great pride in your child's education. We look forward to working with all parents in providing a successful education for each child.  I will do my best to keep you updated through newsletters, emails, and One Call Now messages.

Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone, email, or in-person with any questions, or to let me know how we can help your child have a fantastic educational experience!


Sincerely - Matt Green, Principal
