Principal Sarah MattesonIt is hard to think about the next school year, when the last one just ended. Believe me when I say there is plenty of planning and preparation that goes on all summer long. I look forward to joining the Indian River Intermediate School (IRIS) family and even more working alongside the amazing staff that make our school one of the best in the area. Education and instructional leadership have always been an important part of my life. The desire to become an educator was strongly influenced by so many members of my family serving in this field. I have been blessed to be part of the Indian River School District for 17 years. I began in the classroom as a math teacher at the middle and high school levels as well as an instructional coach and department chair for mathematics.

The Intermediate School provides a new opportunity for our learners. It is the first of the buildings where the entire district comes together and truly brings a wealth of culture and diversity. IRIS is the home of our 4th and 5th grade students which are made up of nearly 700 students. It is our goal, not only as a school, but as a district to provide a safe learning environment where all students can grow socially, emotionally, and academically. Throughout the year, we will work together to create an atmosphere that promotes positive character traits such as respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, and citizenship. We recognize that we cannot do this alone and look forward to partnering with you at home as we work towards the common goal of raising hard working and caring individuals.

I look forward to getting to know all of the students, their families, and the staff at Indian River Intermediate School as we embark on a new beginning together. We have so much to be excited about and many opportunities to learn and grow together. Please feel free to call or stop in the office to say hello, offer feedback, or to simply introduce yourself.

Yours in Education,
Sarah E. Matteson
