Welcome to Our School

May 2018

Dear Parents / Guardians:

This school year has been moving at an incredible pace and it’s hard to believe that this is the penultimate edition of our high school newsletter. The month of May is traditionally one of the busiest months of the school year as we begin recognizing student achievement through various awards ceremonies, host our spring music festivals, start constructing our schedule for the upcoming school year, and begin our testing season with the administration of AP exams the second and third week of the month. 

Please note that AP exams will be administered from Monday, May 7th through Friday, May 18th. The AP schedule is available on-line and students taking AP exams will be excused for the school day upon completion of their respective exams. While AP review is well underway, we are still encouraging students to attend both the supplemental review sessions as well as our daily extra-help which is available in all subjects. We will also be starting our supplemental Regents review sessions and will be providing that schedule in a separate mailing the first week of May, as well as posting it on our high school website. Now more than ever, it is imperative that students arrive to school and class on a timely basis, take advantage of review, and that they focus on ensuring a successful end to the school year. 

In addition to AP exams and review, there are several great events planned for our students and community. Our final blood drive will be hosted on Tuesday, May 1st; the Spring Music Festival parts one and two will be held on Wednesday, May 16th and Wednesday, May 23rd respectively; Our National Honor Society Induction Ceremony will be held on Monday, May 21st; and finally our Underclassmen and Senior Award ceremonies will be held on Thursday, May 31st. Needless to say, there is a lot going on at Glen Cove High School.

Finally, as we held a voter registration drive at the high school this year and have encouraged our student to participate in the political process by casting their vote, I am encouraging all of our community members to come out and vote on this year’s Budget and Trustee Election which will be held on Tuesday, May 15th. Your vote matters!

As always, it is a real pleasure serving the Glen Cove Community as your high school principal and I am very much appreciative of your continued support.

High School Chess Club Championships Underway

Glen Cove High School students are competing against their peers in a Chess Club Open Tournament throughout the month of May.

Organized by Chess Club adviser Victor Oliveri, the tournament allows students to compete in timed chess matches with the opportunity of becoming champion. One female and one male student will earn the coveted title, along with $100 cash prize and a trophy engraved with their names. The first tournament was on May 3. There will also be matches on May 10 and 17 from 2:05-4 p.m. in the high school library.   

Mr. Oliveri said playing chess is beneficial for students because it helps to improve a person’s attention span, focus and critical thinking skills. He extended his gratitude to all the anonymous donors who made the tournament possible. To learn more about the Chess Club, visit

Glen Cove High School senior Veronica Cruz has received accolades from the Photographic Society of America for the second consecutive year. This year, Veronica had three photographs selected for display at the PSA’s national conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Veronica is the only student from Long Island to have that many photographs chosen. 

“I believe that Veronica’s desire to create creative portraits resonated with the judges,” photography teacher Mrs. Melissa Johnides said. “These days, most people with a cell phone can take a decent picture of whatever is in front of them, but Veronica looks beyond that convenience and strives to create her own stories.”  

Mrs. Johnides entered a dozen of her students’ strongest works into the category-based competition, which received more than 800 entries nationally. 

Students Register to Vote

Glen Cove High School seniors attended a voter education and registration workshop on April 11.

The activity was hosted by the Nassau County Board of Elections to allow the students that will be 18 years of age by the next general election on Nov. 6 and are eligible, to vote. A bipartisan team came to the school with instructional materials and guided students through the process of properly completing registration forms. They also brought a voting machine to demonstrate and familiarize the students with the actual process of entering their ballot. Meaningful discussions about the importance of citizens voting and civic duty were discussed.

Glen Cove High School hosted nearly 150 students at a Mock Interview Day on April 16.

Students from various classes in the English Department sat with professionals from outside the education field for a five- to 10-minute, one-on-one interview. The purpose of the activity was to prepare students for future careers by obtaining practical and necessary interview practice while still in high school. The interviewers treated the students as though they were applicants attempting to gain career-type positions.  

Some of the professionals included Glen Cove Mayor Tim Tenke; Glen Cove School Board President Amy Franklin; representatives from Northwell Health, New York Institute of Technology, private firms and public organizations; and other local government officials. The day was a tremendous success thanks to Work-Based Learning Coordinator Jason Smiloff and Youth Bureau Program Coordinator Jacquelyn Yonick. Glen Cove High School looks forward to future career-readiness events.  


High School Community Gathers for International Night

Community services, delicious food and traditional ethnic music and dance were featured when Glen Cove High School hosted its fourth annual International Night on April 16.

The evening was organized by World Language and English as a New Language Coordinator Monica Chavez to share information and express appreciation of the Hispanic community. Before the celebration of food and dance, members of the community had an opportunity to learn about health insurance, local library resources, the Glen Cove Boys and Girls Club, Glen Cove Hospital and more. Some participants also enjoyed getting henna tattoos. 

Glen Cove High School dance club members Maria Fernanda Aquilar, Eduardo Mancia, Dayrin Menjivar and Anderson Valasquez wowed those in attendance with a salsa and reggaetón dance. The group worked hard to prepare for the event, under the direction of teacher Clare Germino. While the guests in attendance enjoyed the delicious food and music, they had an opportunity to view students’ wonderful poems that lined the walls of the cafeteria. 

Ms. Chavez expressed her gratitude to everyone who helped out at the event and those from the school community that attended.
