The district has hired Brian Ginty as principal of the new South Haven Early Childhood Center, which will open this coming fall and hold the district’s already robust pre-kindergarten program.

A Sayville resident, Mr. Ginty has served the district for 10 years first as a principal at Verne W. Critz Elementary School and formerly as an assistant principal and principal at Bellport Middle School. Prior to his tenure at South Country, Mr. Ginty also taught high school social studies at Bethpage High School and at St. John  the Baptist Diocesan High School in Rockville Center.

Mr. Ginty holds a bachelor’s degree in social studies and secondary education, as well as a master’s degree in education from Stony Brook University. 

He said he is pleased to be principal of the district’s new pre-kindergarten center. He said one of his goals is to “establish a loving presence” so that each student can reach his or her full potential and acquire skills that will prepare him or her for elementary school.
