    Assistant Principal - Casey Kuska

    I want to start by saying how excited I am to be joining the Smithville Middle School family!  Since joining the Smithville School District 2 years ago, I have absolutely loved my time in the district and am excited for the opportunity to work with the students, staff, and families at the middle school.  

    My wife Kristina and I have been married for 8 years and have two daughters, Carolina who is 3 and Kinley who is 1.  They definitely keep us on our toes!  We also have three dogs at home, ranging in size from a 200 lb St Bernard to a 5 lb Teacup Yorkie. 

    I have been in education for 10 years, this being the start of my 3rd year as an Assistant Principal.  I’ve had many great experiences leading me to Smithville and learned from many great leaders during my time in education who all continue to inspire and guide me today!  

    I look forward to getting to know everyone in the Middle School community and work with you to help prepare these kids for High School!  Feel free to reach out to me at any time - or 816-532-1122.   

    Go Warriors!
