Gribbin Elementary School
Welcome To Our School
The Eugene J. Gribbin Primary School was built in 1966. Our school was named after Mr. Gribbin, a former principal at Glen Cove High School as well as a Superintendent for the district in 1941. Mr. Gribbin's name was synonymous with education in Glen Cove for many years.
Currently Gribbin School houses 371 students in grades k-2.
The entire staff is dedicated to educating and nurturing the whole child. We strive for a safe and secure environment where every child is encouraged to excel.
"The lesson you teach today is not confined to the walls of the classroom. Once it is implanted in the heart and mind of a child it can change the world".

Youngsters Share Their Take on the Black Trailblazers
Second graders in Colleen Verity's class at Gribbin Elementary School partnered to research famous African American pioneers as a culmination of their Black History Month studies. Students read books and conducted online research to write informative and interesting biography reports. They presented their reports before their classmates and stated their opinions on why their subjects were important to the civil rights movement, and why they were great contributors to society overall.
