Welcome to Mountain Valley Elementary

Families and Friends of MVES,
 
It is with great excitement that I welcome you back for another great year at Mountain Valley Elementary!  I am honored to continue serving the Canyon Lake community as the Principal of MVES.  We have an amazing staff that will work hard to continue the tradition of excellence at Mountain Valley Elementary!
 
Our mission is to provide a safe place for students 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 believe that partnerships with families 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 "shine bright" this year! 
 
Respectfully,
 
Jennifer Smith, Principal

Celebrating School Counselors

They are the go-to for just about everyone on a school campus, from the students and teachers to parents. Their doors are always open, and their work is never done, but they always greet you with a smile, a shoulder and a sympathetic ear - they are school counselors.
