It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the new principal of Harding Middle School.  I come to Harding from Garfield Heights Middle School where I was the principal for the past two years.  I look forward to building relationships with staff, students, parents, and community members here in Lakewood City Schools.

I am also pleased to introduce Mr. Joseph Takacs as the new assistant principal.  Mr. Takacs comes to us most recently from West Geauga High School where he was an assistant principal, but much of his career was spent at the middle school level both as an assistant principal and principal.

The Harding Middle School staff is committed to providing your child with the best possible education in a safe and orderly environment.  Our teachers strive to create an engaging and warm environment where adolescents can grow academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.  We need your support to accomplish these goals. 

The middle school years are crucial for the future academic and social development of your child.  They need the support and guidance of their family now more than ever.

Please note the folloiwng important information about the opening of school:
First Day of School: Wednesday, August 26
