Dear Chesterton Elementary Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I introduce myself to you as the Chesterton Elementary Principal. I feel extremely honored to serve our community as principal. Chesterton is a place where strong connections are made between home and school and where all staff members are committed to academic excellence in a culture of kindness. I value these characteristics and am excited to continue moving our Chesterton Cheetahs along the path of excellence.


Professionally, I have served students at the elementary, middle and high school levels as well as in a school district office. I bring over twenty years of experience as an educator with seventeen years of knowledge and understanding from the role of school administrator. It is essential to me to work hard and to stay current on best practices for kids and successful schools. 


One of the most important aspects of my work as Chesterton’s principal is building solid relationships with students, families, and staff. You will find me in the hallways, classrooms, and on the playground, getting to know our children. I believe that children thrive in an environment and culture that supports and challenges them as individual students, fosters collaboration, and prepares them to be lifelong learners in an ever-changing society. I am committed to providing our students the best educational experience possible while ensuring they reach their full potential.


I bring my skills as an educational leader to Chesterton Elementary School and look forward to working with you as a partner in education. It is my goal that everyone who steps through our doors is excited to be here.  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.

Jennifer Grondek
