As we begin a new school year at Limestone Grade School, I would like to welcome students and staff, as well as our parents and friends in the community!
I am both honored and pleased with the opportunity to return as your new principal! Several years ago when I started teaching, Limestone Grade School quickly became my home and this community likewise became like an extended family to me. Throughout the years teaching and leading, my commitment to and appreciation for the quality of education that defines this school district has continued to grow. There is a sense of pride that comes from being part of something that is bigger than yourself ... Limestone Grade School and the Herscher Community Unit School District 2 have always been that to me. When someone asks me what I do, I have always been proud to say that I am a teacher. And when someone asks me where I teach ... I am equally, if not more proud to name this school and this district as my home. I am excited to partner with you in continuing to provide the excellence in education that has always been characteristic of our schools.
I look forward to the year ahead ... to the growth and achievements of our students ... to the dedication and investment of our staff ... and to the partnership and contribution of our families and community.
Michelle Chavers, Principal
