Principal Sarah Matteson

Dear Students and Parents,

We hope this letter finds you all enjoying this wonderful summer and spending some time in one of the many beautiful rivers and lakes in the area or taking advantage of the many outdoor activities that make this area such great place to live. If you are new to the area or even if you have been here your whole life, welcome. For most of you, IRIS is a new place whether because you just moved into the area or because you have/are a fourth grader and are coming from one of our amazing elementary schools. Again, welcome!

As the new school year approaches, we are working hard to prepare the building for what’s to come. This year will bring a number of changes, however there are many things that continue to make IRIS a great place to learn. With the personal setting of the suites, the amazing staff that spend countless hours to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn, and state of the art technology, IRIS is one of a kind.

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 continue to 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 toward the common goal of raising hard working and caring individuals.

As an administrative team, we look forward to building relationships with the students, and their families,as we embark on a new year. We have 38 years of combined educational experience yet we are so excited about the 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.

Our Open House is on August 30th from 4-6pm. We look forward to seeing you all there. You will get an opportunity to tour the school, meet your teacher, and even meet the new principal!

Yours in Education,
Sarah E. Matteson
