Welcome to Our School

Dear Parents / Guardians:

We are happy to report that the school year is off to a great start. Students and staff have acclimated well to the new school year and we are looking forward to many great things ahead. During the month of September, meetings were held with each grade level, school administrators and support staff that addressed students not just on our expectations in terms of student decorum, but on all of the resources available to help make their high school careers successful. We also hosted our first PTSA meeting and were very pleased to see the number of parents who attended. Needless to say, we are happy to see the great level of involvement from our parents and wish to continue a fruitful collaboration as the year progresses. 

October is an extremely busy month for students and staff alike. Progress reports will be issued, we will be hosting several college fairs and senior meetings with guidance counselors have already been scheduled. We are also hosting several College Board examinations. The ACT will be administered at the high school on Saturday, October 28th. Please note that the school calendar contains the registration dates for all of these exams and seniors should be mindful of college application deadlines. Information is available in the guidance office as well as on our website. Unlike the other College Board exams, the PSAT will be administered to all sophomores and juniors on Wednesday, October 11th, and school will be closed for our freshman and seniors. Please note that sophomores and juniors will have a modified day and details will be forwarded to parents as the date approaches. Should you have any questions about any of the aforementioned, please contact your child’s guidance counselor. 

Aside from the college fairs, we also have two programs scheduled in the upcoming month. On October 17th, students will attend an assembly program by Dr. Dewey, a professor from the Laboratory for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroimaging who specializes in drug use during development – from adolescence through adulthood, focusing on how these substances affect brain function and structure. Dr. Dewey will also present to parents and community members on evening of Tuesday, October 24th, at 7:30 p.m. in the high school auditorium. The presentation entitled “The Teenaged Brain” will be free and we encourage parents to attend as it will be extremely informative. The high school is also hosting a Medical Career Day sponsored by Glen Cove Hospital, featuring numerous lectures and presentations by professionals from various fields. We are very excited to expose our students to these educational experiences and hope to schedule more in the future.    

Finally I am excited that our fall athletics are well under way. The high school’s pep rally is scheduled for Friday, October 6th, followed by the Homecoming parade and game on Saturday, October 7th under the lights. Glen Cove will be facing Levittown Division High School, so please come out to support our student athletes and display our Glen Cove pride! 

As always, we want to encourage you to read all of the accompanying information and by all means contact the school should you have any questions or concerns. Your involvement in our various events and organizations is very important to our school. Thanks again for your continued support and it really is a pleasure serving the Glen Cove community. 


Sincerely,
Antonio Santana

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.

Glen Cove High School students, faculty and staff kicked off the school’s annual homecoming celebration with a pep rally on Oct. 6.

The high-spirited event celebrated athletes and featured outstanding performances by the school’s student-musicians, cheerleaders and kick line team. 

The school’s Student Senate, under the direction of adviser Ellen Lynch, created posters and coordinated the day’s activities. Each year at the pep rally, in addition to honoring students, the Student Senate honors one or more faculty or staff member who have positively affected students during their years in Glen Cove. Congratulations to Social Studies Chairperson Sue Poulos for receiving this year’s recognition.

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.
