Welcome to Smithson Valley Middle School

Dear Mustang parents, students, and community,
 
I hope each of you had a restful and enjoyable summer with your family and friends! Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are excited to work closely with you and your children, so that your child receives the best educational experience possible! SVMS has strong traditions and high expectations, these will not change. There will be some changes as the state assessment, the STAAR, continues to evolve. You will see that our staff will continue to provide each individual child with a strong foundation to not only be successful on the STAAR, but to prepare for college readiness standards. Our teachers, coaches, and staff have traditionally led our campus to excellent outcomes in many areas of school life. We will continue to provide opportunities for your children to develop lifetime skills, so that they may excel daily and be prepared for their future challenges.
 
Each year I encourage parents to become involved, join, and support our PTA, athletic teams, fine arts programs, clubs, and other school organizations. Talk with your child's teacher, their counselor, and their administrator. Please consider volunteering to help; by doing so, your involvement will make this campus a better place for students! As principal, please communicate with me if you need assistance. If you have questions or comments about SVMS, I may be reached by email at keranen@comalisd.org or by calling the school at (830) 885-1206.
 
Let's have a great school year! Proud to be a Mustang!
 
Michael Keranen

Early Release Days: Collaboration Happens When Kids Go Home

During the current school year, Comal ISD scheduled 10 early release days. Six of those 10 are set aside specifically for teachers to have the time to collaborate with each other, and the result of this collaboration time is an increase in student performance.

Raising Environmental Awareness, One Shoe at a Time

It lasted only 11 days, but its results are impressive. A student-led environmental campaign resulted in 88 boxes, 2,750 pairs or 5,500 shoes. They are now on their way to a non-profit organization which will repurpose and recycle every one.

FFA at Comal ISD: More than Stock Shows

Sure, they may show animals at local and area stock shows taking home scholarship money for all their hard work, but FFA members today, do that and so much more.
