After a comprehensive search process, Peter Melore has been welcomed as the district’s new director of health, physical education, athletics and recreation, effective this past July.  

Mr. Melore comes to the Connetquot Central School District from the Three Village Central School District, where he served as the executive director of health, physical education, recreation and athletics for the past four years. Under his leadership, the district’s physical education and athletic program reached new successes, including state athletic championship titles, the introduction of advanced curricular programs and training initiatives to help staff further support student-athletes.    

Prior to Three Village, Mr. Melore worked as the director of physical education, health, intramural athletics and recreation in the Roslyn School District, where he implemented CPR certification in health classes, provided leadership training for athletes and oversaw the staffing, scheduling and budget of the entire department. In addition to his administrative experience, he also brings firsthand knowledge of best classroom practices to his new role in Connetquot, as he began his career as a physical education teacher at the Weldon E. Howitt Middle School in the Farmingdale School District. During his time spent in the Farmingdale and Smithtown school districts, Mr. Melore amassed more than 20 years of both teaching and coaching experience at the middle and high school levels.

“I am very excited to be joining the Connetquot Central School District this year and am eager to begin working with our physical education, health and athletics staff members to further elevate the district’s programs and offerings,” said Mr. Melore. 

Mr. Melore graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education with a concentration in sport management from SUNY Cortland, a Master of Arts in physical education from Adelphi University and completed the Education Leadership Program at Dowling College.
