Hoffmann Lane Elementary Home

Welcome to Hoffmann Lane Elementary

Dear HLES Parents & Community,
 
I want to sincerely welcome you and your family to Hoffmann Lane Elementary. We are so happy to have you join our school family.
 
My husband, Carl and I are both born and raised in Central Texas and have 3 children in Comal ISD.  All are involved in various activities and they manage to keep us busy!
 
Although I have been in education for 17 years, I am beginning my 8th year at Hoffmann Lane and my first year as principal. Our teachers and staff are gifted educators who work tirelessly to help our children succeed.  We encourage each of them to give their best effort each day and strive to foster happy, well-balanced students.
 
We believe the partnership between parents and the school is critical to the success of our HLES Leopards.  We have a very strong PTA program which provides multiple opportunities for parents to volunteer.  If you have not already done so, we encourage you to consider joining.   
  
Please email or give me a call if you have any questions or concerns. If I haven't already met you, I look forward to the opportunity soon! 
Amanda Schumann, Principal

Smart Business

Many of the vocational classes offered today at high schools are not your typical electives. Comal ISD's Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, like the Business, Marketing and Finance program at Smithson Valley and other high schools, are part of a multi-faceted, modern curriculum that provides students with the technical knowledge and real-world skills they need to get started in a current or emerging profession.
