Frank D’Amico taught physical education for 35 years in the Amity school system. He coached football, basketball, and track. Frank was a great coach and teacher who always stressed the importance of teamwork. He simply loved what he did and always encouraged and motivated his students to be active and do their best. He personified the true spirit of Amity in everything he did. Each year the physical education staff at Amity Middle School in Bethany chooses one 8th grade male and one 8th grade female to honor Frank D’Amico.
Provide a safe, healthy, and caring environment that maximizes the social, physical, and intellectual growth of the young adolescent.
