NORWICH – Holy Family is pleased to introduce a new Early Childhood program beginning this September. Suzanne Scafidi, who recently received her Literacy MSED from SUNY Potsdam (with distinction) has accepted the position of Early Childhood teacher. Scafidi is a graduate of Holy Family and Norwich City Schools.
Designing the Early Childhood program prompted a review of Holy Family’s facilities, and one of the areas that needed improvement was the playground. A committee including Gene Chilion, principal, Nancy Ritzel, Pre-K teacher and several parents of young children met last spring to discuss an age-appropriate play area, and the committee proposed adding a separate play area that would specifically serve the needs of children ages 3 through approximately 6 years.
