CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
1 Park St. Marathon, NY 13803
Hello! My name is Mr. Coppola! I am very excited to be your new Jr/Sr. High School Principal. I started officially August 2nd and have had the pleasure of overlapping your current principal Ms. Marcolina for two weeks. During this transition period I have been absorbing a lot of information. She has provided tremendous guidance for me to get up to speed for a great start to the year.
I am starting my 28th year in public education. I was previously a Physical Education Teacher, Assistant Principal, Middle School Principal, High School Principal, and a K-12 Director of Health, Physical Education, and Athletics. I also have a bus driver’s license as I helped transport students last year during the COVID pandemic due to a shortage of drivers at times. I love education and working with students, staff, and the communities I have had the pleasure to work with in the school districts I was in previously. I am looking forward to forging those same types of relationships here at Marathon.
I graduated from Central Square High School and played three sports. I graduated from St. Lawrence University with my Bachelor’s of Science and Masters degrees. I then went on to obtain my Certification of Advanced Study in Educational Administration from SUNY Oswego. I have four children and have been married to my wife for 19 years! I am very involved with my family and look forward to introducing them to Marathon.
I hope we all have a great start to the 2022-23 school year and I look forward to meeting you all!
of the Olympians"
