Welcome to Mountain Valley Elementary

Dear Families and Friends of Mountain Valley Elementary School,
 
It is with great excitement that I welcome you to the 2019-20 school year; we hope you are ready for a fabulous year at Mountain Valley Elementary!  I am honored to continue serving the Canyon Lake community as the Principal of Mountain Valley Elementary School.  We have an amazing staff that will work hard to continue the tradition of excellence at MVES!
 
Our mission at Mountain Valley Elementary is to provide a safe place for ALL to learn and grow. This year we will focus on growing kind and collaborative relationships among our students, providing opportunities for students to have choice and voice in their learning and engaging students in critical thinking and problem solving.  
 
I look forward to seeing you at MVES during the many family engagement activities hosted throughout the school year.  Each month we will send home our school newsletter “Fridge Notes”.  “Fridge Notes” will give you information about what’s going on at MVES for the upcoming month and ways that you can get involved. We also encourage all families to follow our official Facebook page @CISDMountainValleyElementary.  
 
We believe that strong partnerships between families and the school are important for student success; we can’t wait to connect with you this school year.  Stop by and say hello--my door is always open and I welcome your input.  Let's work together to make sure our students at Mountain Valley Elementary "EMPOWERED" this year! 
 
Respectfully,
 
Jennifer Smith, Principal
