Welcome to Our School

Dear Parents / Guardians:

So this is the penultimate edition of my monthly letter and it’s hard to believe that in a few short weeks classes will be over and we’ll be prepping for finals and graduation.  May tends to be an extremely busy month for us.  In addition to our Advanced Placement (AP) exams which begin May 2nd, we have already started to schedule Regents review for our upcoming exams in June.  Please encourage your child to not only participate in the review sessions, but in our after school extra-help.  Review schedules for both AP and Regents examinations are available on our website as well as in the school’s Main Office.  Now more than ever, it is important that students arrive to school and class on time and focus on a successful end to the school year.

In addition to AP exams, there are several great events planned for the month of May.  We have a blood drive scheduled for May 2nd; our two spring concerts on May 17th and 24th; our National Honor Society induction ceremony on May 22nd; and our student awards ceremonies on May 31st.  Times and details for each event are available on the school calendar and on our district website.  Please come out to our performing arts programs which are sure to be entertaining and to honor our student’s achievements.  I am very proud of what we have accomplished this school year and am looking forward to all these wonderful events.

Finally, this year’s Budget Vote and Trustee Election will be held on Tuesday, May 16th and we encourage all of our community members to come out and cast their vote.

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

For the second consecutive year, Glen Cove High School’s Julia Farley placed first at the LIU Post Student Film/Video Festival. 

Julia's animated piece, "Keeper" is an original story from her remarkably creative brain. The judges remembered Julia's winning piece, "Pretty" from last year and were impressed that she managed to pull out a simultaneous victory. They were also impressed with how her abilities and skills as a storyteller have matured. 

Senior Laura Roesch also presented her video "John Jacob" at the festival and received critical acclaim from the judges and positive comments from the students in attendance.

In addition, Julia's animated piece, "Save the Bees" was selected to move on from her "Best in Show" win at the Long Island Media Art Show and will now be shown at the First Exposure Film Festival sponsored by the Suffolk County Film Commission. Julia will be honored with a certificate from Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone. First Exposure takes place at the Cinema Arts Center in Huntington on May 21 at 2 p.m. Congratulations!

The Board of Education and members of the administration celebrated the achievements of Glen Cove High School’s virtual enterprises students during the BOE meeting on May 8.

The students, under the direction of business teacher Judi Checola, were honored with a gold award for salesmanship at the Virtual Enterprises International 2017 Youth Business Summit in New York City on April 5. At the meeting, the students presented an overview of their virtual enterprise business, Click-n-Shop Groceries, discussing current economic conditions, profit margin and other aspects of the business. Those in attendance had an opportunity to watch a Click-n-Shop Groceries commercial the students created.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Maria Rianna and Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Technology Dr. Michael Israel commended the students on their achievements.
“All of you have done a wonderful job representing Glen Cove with all the skills you’ve acquired and how you’ve displayed them,” Dr. Rianna said.    
Dr. Rianna also expressed her appreciation to Checola, who has spent countless hours working with students.  

“This doesn’t happen without the dedication outside of the school day, as well as in the school day. Judi Checola has done an amazing job leading our students and giving them the support they need.”
