Mr. Matt Green, Principal

My name is Matt Green, and I am starting my 21st 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 fourth 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. My wife and I have six children – ages 2 through 14 - and I know firsthand 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.  Our staff will also be concentrating on school-wide math and reading goals by aligning our units of study with other district schools and the New Illinois Learning Standards.

Check back to this website frequently for more updates. Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone, email, or in-person with any questions.  I am very much looking forward to working with your children, and please let me know what I can do to help our students have a successful 2015-16 school year!


Sincerely - Matt Green, Principal
