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 399 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".

Gribbin Students Learn About Character

Members of Gribbin’s after-school Character Club performed a short skit about generosity for schoolmates during their first schoolwide assembly.
In addition to watching the Character Club presentation, many students received a Kindness Kritter Award from second-grade teacher and Character Club adviser Coleen Brunhuber. The award was given to students who earned a leaf in October for showing kindness and respect to others. The leaves were added to the school’s Big Tree Bulletin Board.

This is the third year Brunhuber is running the after-school Character Club for second-grade students.

Mets Fun at Gribbin


Second-grade students at Gribbin commemorated the New York Mets’ trip to the World Series with classroom activities that highlighted the team’s outstanding achievement while reinforcing the school’s curriculum.

Dressed in the trademark Mets colors of orange and blue, the children rotated between three classes to create their own baseball cards, an exercise that included measuring their own height and writing personal information about themselves. In addition, they took part in a close reading exercise on the history of the Mets and broke into groups to create a poster on what they learned. Other activities included alphabetizing the Mets players’ last names and sorting the team’s individual averages from greatest to least. 
Second-grade teachers and Met fans Coleen Brunhuber, Amy Gallo and Mark Glaviano worked together to organize the day’s events.


Gribbin’s Red Ribbon Week

Gribbin School kicked off Red Ribbon Week with an assembly presented by members of the City of Glen Cove Police Department.

At the assembly, Police Sergeant Ryan Nardone and Officer Ted Karousos gave a PowerPoint presentation about staying drug-free and making healthy choices. Ashley Ferrufino from Glen Cove SAFE was also in attendance to honor the winners of the Red Ribbon Week Art Contest. In addition to the presentations, the students sang "Dare to Be Drug-Free," under the direction of music teacher JoAnn Criblez.

Red Ribbon Week is a nationwide event held annually to educate young people about the dangers of substance abuse and the importance of staying healthy.
