We are pleased to announce the appointment of Joseph Martillotti as the district’s new director of athletics, physical education and health. Mr. Martillotti was previously the district coordinator of athletics in the Lawrence Public Schools and will replace Lynbrook’s current athletic director, Thomas Graham, who is retiring.

He also holds a school district leader certification and a school building leader certification from the College of Saint Rose.
Mr. Martillotti has served over three years as Lawrence’s district coordinator of athletics and is adept in student, coach and teacher development, community relations and facility management. Prior to his role as district coordinator of athletics, Mr. Martillotti was a physical education, health and adaptive physical education teacher at the elementary, middle and high school levels in the Lawrence Public Schools.
Since 2000, Mr. Martillotti has been coaching various athletic teams in Lawrence.

As Lawrence High School’s head varsity boys bowling coach, the team was crowned five-time conference champions. Throughout the years, Mr. Martillotti has also received numerous accolades for his leadership and dedication.
“There are so many great people that make up the Lynbrook School District,” said Mr. Martillotti. “I am most looking forward to working in a district where the community as a whole truly supports the physical education, health and athletic programs. Over the years as a coach, AD and spectator, I have seen first-hand the huge crowds that Lynbrook draws at athletic events. The fans are truly supportive and positive. From the student body, parents, administration, board of education and community, it provides an exhilarating environment for student athletes. I am truly honored to be a part of that.”
