To The Daily Sun,
I am writing today to publicly and sincerely express, on behalf of everyone at the Winnipesaukee Playhouse, our gratitude to the Inter-Lakes School District and some specific individuals in particular at Inter-Lakes Elementary School.
As some people know, we are holding our youth summer camp at I-LES this year. As I write this, we are nearing the conclusion of the program — five weeks down, one to go. Students work, in the morning, with expert teachers to devise, rehearse, and perform their own original plays based on this summer's theme of "Fables Legends, and Myths!" In the afternoon, the focus of our day turns to dance, music, and art.
From early meetings with Dr. Steve Kelley, I-LES principal, and Director of Buildings and Grounds Chris Wald, to our daily interactions at the school with Head Custodian Donna Sturgeon and her fantastic crew, we have been made to feel nothing but welcome by everyone in our "summer home." Many other people, including the office staff and summer BLAST faculty and staff, have also gone out of their ways to welcome and help us. I want to make sure I acknowledge librarian Andrea Caulder and teachers Steve Watson, Wanda Miller, Denise Read, and Sheri MacMillan, whose space we occupied.
Positive community interaction is a recurring motif in the Inter-Lakes School District's official vision, mission, and core values. Being a newcomer to this community, I was really moved to discover how dedicated the school district is to actively living these values and modeling this vision and mission for its students — some of whom are with us for the summer.
