Mrs. Rodda, Principal

Principal Rodda


My name is Cicely Rodda and I am thrilled to be the Principal at Eugene Padan Elementary for three years now. Prior to that I was the Assistant Principal for three years. I am a proud product of the Vacaville Unified School District. I attended K-12 here in Vacaville. I also have three children who attend school in Vacaville Unified. I truly believe this is a great place to raise children. 

 Padan is one of the two schools in the Vacaville Unified School District to be A Leader in Me School. Our students and staff are well versed in the 7 Habits and it exudes in our leadership at our site. We encourage you to visit and see how this has positively impacted our school culture and community. In April of 2019 we earned the distinct designation of being a Leader In Me Lighthouse School. We are the only school in Northern California to have this title. 

Padan has the continued opportunity to be a part of a PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports). PBIS is a proactive, systematic approach to teaching students expected/acceptable behavior for school. This system is currently being used in hundreds of schools across the state and the country, with great results. I am excited to work with a team of teachers, staff and parents to continue to build Padan to be the best it can be.

Padan is a great place to be. We are glad you are here with us and look forward to working with you. We are all part of a team in educating your child. My door is always open to talk should you have any concerns. You can also call me at 707-453-6235 ext 102. Please email me at:

I look forward to each day to see our students develop into leaders and grow as students. Whether it be in the classroom, in the hallway or out on the playground, I enjoy building relationships with our students and being part of the Padan family. 

As assistant principal one of my duties is to ensure students and parents are knowledgeable about the importance of daily school attendance. If you have any questions or concerns about school attendance, please feel free to email or call me at 707-453-6235 ext 299.
