Students, staff and community members came together for Glen Cove High School’s annual homecoming parade and football game on Oct. 7.

Marchers accompanied their creatively decorated floats and golf carts on the parade route from Gribbin Elementary School to Glen Cove High School as community members cheered them on. This year’s theme was “Our Knight Out,” which was symbolic of the festivities being held in the evening.  

Prior to the game, members of the student senate and homecoming court were introduced. Glen Cove cheerleaders also performed.

During halftime, the audience enjoyed more entertainment courtesy of the Glen Cove High School marching band, kick line and varsity cheerleaders. Congratulations to seniors Lauren Friedman and Ryan Greenfield, who were named homecoming queen and king.

Glen Cove fought hard, but unfortunately fell to Division High School, 18-6.

Science Research Students Skype College Professor

Science Research Students Skye

Students in Glen Cove High School’s new Science Research Literacy class had the opportunity to video chat with College of the Holy Cross physical chemistry professor Dr. Lynna Gabriela Avila-Bront.

Students just completed a unit on the scientific method, and brainstormed questions to ask Dr. Avila-Bront about her scientific career, as well as her current research. They also inquired about her greatest achievement, the rate of her results given the margin of experimental error and why she decided to pursue science. Students were most surprised to find out that post-college studies in science are funded by government grants, and graduate students are in fact paid to attend graduate school.

“This was a fantastic opportunity to connect with a college professor as students begin their exploration of scientific research,” Coordinator of Science Alexa Doeschner said.
