Educating Excellence!

Principal's Message

Welcome to Clyde C. Hadden Elementary School.  I am delighted to begin my 14th year working for the Riverside School District as an elementary principal and 11th year with the staff, parents and children of Clyde C. Hadden Elementary School.  I believe that building a partnership with families and staff is imperative to the success of your child.  

On behalf of the students, staff, parents and community, I would like to welcome each of you to Clyde C. Hadden Elementary School.  Approximately 225 students in kindergarten through fifth grade are enrolled for the 2018-2019 school year.  There are over 30 full and part time dedicated staff members who strive to create a quality, memorable educational experience for your child(ren) in a caring and nurturing environment. Parents volunteer at school and for family events. 

Parents and family members are encouraged to become involved at school by helping children with homework at home, joining the Parent Teacher Organization (Clyde C. Hadden Elementary Community Organization or C.C.H.E.C.O.) and volunteering in a variety of ways.  Family members can volunteer in the library, as homeroom parents, chairing or assisting during family events or fundraising projects, tutoring and mentoring students, or helping teachers with special projects.  Support of the Parent Teacher Organization is needed and valued, so please consider becoming involved with C.C.H.E.C.O.  Together we will have a significant impact on the educational experience of our children have at Clyde C. Hadden Elementary School.

Prospective families that would like to tour the school or have any questions are welcome and encouraged to contact the Administrative Assistant, Cynthia Mahoney at 440 354-4414.  Registration takes place at the Board of Education office located at 585 Riverside Drive, Painesville, Ohio, 44077.  Registration instruction and forms are accessible on the district web site at http://www.painesville-township.k12.oh.us/.   Student registration documents are available on the district website. 


Best Wishes!
