Dear Team Inter-Lakes Family,

It’s been a great first year with all of you! I want to thank everyone: students, staff, and parents, for your support and positivity as we’ve made our way through this year of change together. The strength of our community and wholehearted passion to make our school a wonderful place of learning for our children is simply amazing!
The I-LES family is saying goodbye to some special people this year: Mr. Chuck Yaeger, Mrs. Julie Krisak, and Mrs. Kelly Meier are retiring and moving on to new adventures. We wish them the best of luck; their contributions to our school will be dearly missed!
