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 382 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".

Second-graders in Coleen Brunhuber and Jennifer Hajok’s class at Gribbin School participated in a lesson about spreading kindness as a beginning of the year, community-building activity. The teachers feel it’s important for the kids to accept and treat each other with respect and kindness. They shared that together with students, they become a classroom family and take care of each other all year long. The class had fun doing the activity. First, they read the book “Jelly Donut Difference,” by Maria Dismondy. They then decorated a picture of a donut that included “sprinkles” with acts of kindness written on them, picked one act of kindness and constructed a sentence about it.
