Welcome to Smithson Valley Middle School

Dear Mustang parents, students, and community;
 
 
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I hope each of you had a restful and enjoyable summer with your family and friends! 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, and they will not change. Furthermore, for the second year in a row, we have received a rating of an “A” by the state of Texas for our most current academic evaluation.
SVMS currently has approximately 650 students enrolled.  This smaller population helps us to provide your child with a more individual middle school experience. 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 and be prepared for their future challenges.
One noticeable change for this year is student ID’s.  We ask that you assist us in reminding your child to bring and wear their ID every day.  Wearing an ID is a Comal ISD district policy and is an expectation at SVMS for all students.
Each year, I encourage parents to become involved, join, and support our PTA, athletic teams, fine arts programs, clubs, and other school organizations. I also encourage you to communicate with your child's teachers, counselors, and administrators. 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 us have a great school year! Proud to be a Mustang!
 
 
Michael Keranen
