Welcome to Cleveland Elementary School!

Greetings Cleveland Community!

My name is Mike Daraskavich and I am the principal of Cleveland Elementary. Our school is a dedicated group of teachers, support staff, and families that are here to ensure student success. As the principal, it is my top priority to provide a safe nurturing environment in which every child reaches their utmost potential. 

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I am blessed to have an amazing wife and three beautiful daughters. My family is extremely supportive, and they live nearby, so you will probably meet them at one of our many events here at school. My career with Livonia Public Schools began as a classroom teacher at Kennedy Elementary. At Kennedy, I taught in a variety of settings in grades 2 through 6. From Kennedy, I had the privilege of serving as the teacher-leader at Garfield Elementary. I was at Garfield for two fantastic years when the opportunity arose to come to Cleveland in 2007. I can't say enough how fortunate I feel to be a part of the Cleveland Community. We have a strong community and an amazing staff. I look forward to working with all of you over the years, and together we will make Cleveland the best school around!

My door is always open. Please stop in if you have any questions or concerns. I can be contacted at:
