Glen Cove High School’s incoming freshmen met their soon-to-be teachers, received class schedules and toured their new school building at the ninth-grade orientation and barbecue, which was held prior to the 2014-15 school year.
Welcoming the new students were Glen Cove High School Interim Principal Roseann Cirnigliaro and Assistant Principals Allen Hudson and Nadine Richards, who reassured the incoming freshmen.
“We’re all going to work together to make sure you have a terrific four years at Glen Cove High School,” Cirnigliaro said.
Superintendent of Schools Maria Rianna was also in attendance and reminded students to not be frightened.
“Don’t be afraid to ask a question,” Rianna said. “We are all here to help you and our goal is to make sure you have a successful school year and a successful high school career at Glen Cove.”
The first-year students met with guidance counselors, who furnished them with a copy of their 2014-15 class schedules. Freshmen students walked the halls of the high school building familiarizing themselves with their new surroundings.
The event concluded with a barbecue, thanks to food and drink donations by the school’s PTSA. Students enjoyed some music, caught up with friends and took pictures with props in a photo booth. They also tried their luck at winning raffles, which were donated by the Glen Cove Booster Club.
