Welcome to Our School

January 2018

Dear Parents / Guardians:

I want to first wish the entire Glen Cove community a wonderful and healthy 2018! Hard to imagine that at the end of this month, we will officially be at the midpoint of the school year and already looking forward to planning for not only the subsequent school year, but graduation!

There are three important dates in January for parents and students alike. On January 10th, there will be an informational meeting for parents and student athletes who are college bound, in addition to a general guidance meeting for juniors and seniors on January 11th, offering information detailing information relative to the college application process and life after high school.  In addition, the high school will be hosting the 8th grade student and parent orientation on January 18th.  I encourage parents and students to participate and take advantage of these opportunities to have questions answered by our staff.

January also brings around midterms and Regents exams.  Our Regents/midterm testing week starts on Monday, January 22nd.  During this week, students will be administered Regents exams where applicable, as well as midterms and finals for semester courses.  Please note that some of these exams will be administered in class.  It should also be noted that all juniors will sit for the Common Core English Regents and are recommended to attend review after school.  In fact, I would encourage all of our students to attend review and extra-help in preparation for our exams.  Both the testing and review schedules are available on our website.

The second quarter and first semester of the school year ends on Friday January 26th.  Remember, success in school is directly related to not only great attendance, but on a student’s willingness to learn and participate on a daily basis.  Please contact the school should you have any questions and let’s continue working together to insure our student’s success.

It really is a pleasure and honor serving the Glen Cove community as your High School Principal. Should you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 801-7610.

Sincerely,
Antonio Santana
Allen Hudson III
Katie Prudente

Glen Cove High School students in Clare Germino’s Spanish II classes recently created a Mexican-style holiday market. 

The students created their own "puesto" stand and decorated a sign advertising food and crafts for sale. All patrons enjoyed the market, where the students sold everything from baked goods and empanadas to holiday cards, stationery and handmade stuffed animals. Fake pesos were used for payment, and students from other language classes were invited to converse with the classes in Spanish.

Ms. Germino said the market was a great experience for students and tied into the Mexican holiday tradition. Several weeks before Navidad (Christmas), market stalls, or puestos, are set up in plazas in most Mexican cities and towns, where vendors sell crafts and goods. 

Select Chorale Meets World-Renowned Composer

Glen Cove High School’s Select Chorale had an opportunity to meet and work with world-renowned Norwegian composer and pianist Ola Gjeilo on Dec. 14.

The meeting was planned in preparation of the group’s concert, where they will perform Mr. Gjeilo’s “Dark Night of the Soul” and “Luminous Night of the Soul.”

Choral Director Ed Norris described the meeting as “magical.”

“What an experience it was to not only work with a living composer, but someone of his stature in the music industry,” Norris said. “He helped us in many ways, but mostly he was able to really listen and pick apart some things that we needed to work on in terms of balance and phrasing.”

After the students finished singing, they had an opportunity to ask Mr. Gjeilo questions about his music, Norway and many other topics.   

Mr. Norris said that when the group returned to rehearsal the following day, he saw a vast improvement in their performance, saying, “They did a great instituting many of the suggestions that Mr. Gjeilo made.”
