Welcome to Our School

Dear Parents / Guardians:

The month of December is typically filled with excitement and anticipation, whether it’s the Masquers fall drama production, the winter concert or the start of winter sports and parent teacher conferences, our students and faculty are involved in a multitude of activities as we approach our holiday break. 

We are also quickly approaching the midpoint of the second marking period and we want to encourage parents to please take advantage of the opportunity to speak to your child’s teachers during Parent / Teacher Conferences on Thursday, December 7th, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the High School.  If you haven’t done so already, please log on to to select an appointment time or you can call the school at 801-7610, during office hours from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.  Again, it is imperative that parents and guardians maintain open communication with their children’s teacher to enhance their opportunities for success. 

It should be noted that we are no longer allowed to send automated calls regarding school events unless the school has the authorization to do so from the household.  The only exceptions are emergencies, school closings or delays that affect the entire student population.  If you want to receive messages regarding school events, such as our shows, concerts, and other student events, you must please submit the authorization form to the high school’s main office.  If you need a form please contact the main office and they can print you a new one.  It is also imperative that your contact information be updated.  Should you have any questions, please contact the Main Office at 801-7610. 

Speaking of shows and concerts, we are hoping parents and community members come out to the Masquers Fall Production of The Dairy of Ann Frank on Friday, December 8 and Saturday, December 9 at 8:00 p.m., as well as our Winter Festival of Performing Arts on Thursday, December 21st, starting at 7:30 p.m.  Both will be an entertaining display of our student’s talents, so kindly join us in our newly renovated auditorium.

Finally, while we love the holiday season and all those good things that come with it, it is also the time of year we need to start thinking about inclement weather.  Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the “delayed opening” and “school closure” procedures posted on the district website.

As always, it is a real pleasure serving the Glen Cove Community as the High School Principal.  I want to take this opportunity to wish all of our Glen Cove families and community members a fantastic and joyful holiday season and a prosperous new year.

Photography Students Enjoy PhotoPlus Expo

Several Glen Cove High School students experienced “the biggest photography event in North America” when they recently attended the PhotoPlus Expo 2017 in New York City.

Photography teacher Mrs. Melissa Johnides attended the expo in 2016 and was excited to share the experience with select students this year. Students captured photographs of New York City on their walk to the Javits Center, where they received hands-on experience with high-end photography gear, including cameras and lighting equipment. They also watched live instruction on how to achieve the perfect shot by professionals in the business. Before heading home, the students viewed some contemporary artwork at the Sean Kelly Gallery. It was a memorable day for all.

Glen Cove High School seniors Andy Delgado, Joshua Filippone and Jared Vengas received academic acknowledgement from the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program.

Each year the NHRP awards this honor to approximately 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic and Latino students who take the PSAT in their junior year.
The NHRP identifies academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students and can be used on college applications. Students are chosen based on their performance on the PSAT, and they are required to have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.

Principal Antonio Santana congratulated Andy, Joshua and Jared on this achievement. 

Glen Cove High School Hosts Mayoral Debate

Glen Cove High School Hosts Mayoral Debate photo
Glen Cove High School’s senior social studies classes and the Glen Cove Youth Bureau hosted a mayoral debate in the high school auditorium on Nov. 3.

Senior students enrolled in Participation in Government classes researched local concerns and developed questions for the debate, while AP Government and Politics students volunteered their time to run the debate and helped the City Council candidates set up in the gallery for the meet and greet, which took place immediately after the event.  

This debate provided a deeper understanding of campaigns, the election process and local issues for students. Through real-life experiences such as this, students get more invested in learning and have a deeper understanding of their civic duty. The moderator of the event was Will Casale from Mr. Pearsall’s AP Government class. He did a tremendous job in maintaining the decorum of the debate. Several students asked questions during the debate. Students Nikki Franklin and Amanda Ieraci served as timekeepers. All of the students did an impressive job.
