EDISON — Ardys Sapchin of Piscataway retired from The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in North Edison this month after 32 years of teaching physical education and athletics to the school’s Pre-Kindergarten to eighth grade students.
Sapchin, who most recently served as Physical Education Department chairperson, Lower and Middle School physical education teacher, and Middle School swimming head coach, began her career on the school’s Plainfield campus in 1978. She was the Lower School athletic director for many years, coached and scheduled games for fifth and sixth graders, and coached Middle School for all three seasons.
“The fact that we still have physical education five times per week in Lower School is wonderful. It is so important that all of our children engage in physical activity,” she said.
