Nicholas McPartlandThe South Glens Falls Central School District is pleased to welcome Nicholas McPartland as Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics as of July 1, 2016.

McPartland was most recently a health and physical education teacher and coach at the Greenwich Junior Senior High School, a position he held for two years prior to joining the administrative team in South Glens Falls.

“I believe that athletics and physical education are an important aspect of a positive school experience. I also believe that health education and family and consumer science are two subject areas that are important for preparing students to take ownership of their future,” McPartland said. “South Glens Falls has many pieces in place to provide a quality athletic experience for our student/athletes, and I look forward to enhancing this experience.”

“We are very excited to have Nick join us here in South Glens Falls,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Patton, Ed.D. Nearly 30 stakeholders representing our student/athletes, coaches, teachers, support staff and parents were involved in the interview process. “The interview committees were very impressed with McPartland’s enthusiasm, physical education and health teaching experiences, as well as his vision for the future of South Glens Falls athletics. We are looking forward to the positive influence Mr. McPartland will have on our students’ academic success and building on the proud history of our interscholastic athletics program.”

McPartland received a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Science in Health Education from SUNY Cortland and his Certificate of Advanced Study as a School Building Leader, from SUNY Plattsburgh. Prior to working in Greenwich, McPartland was a health and physical education teacher in Hudson Falls for six years. McPartland has coached baseball and football during his career at the college, high school and youth levels.

I am really looking forward to developing relationships with the students, staff, and community members of SGF, McPartland said. “I feel very fortunate to be a member of the SGF school community. I am really excited to be a Bulldog and can’t wait to see our students in action!”
