Welcome to Our School

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The year goes by so quickly and it is hard to believe the third quarter ends on Friday, April 17th.  We are now preparing for the culminating events at the high school.  These include AP exams, finals and Regents exams.  Now more than ever before, it is imperative to remind everyone about the importance of being in school every day and in every class, on time.  

Teachers are beginning reviews for the upcoming examinations.  There will also be after school review sessions.  Please encourage your children to attend all these review sessions.  Schedules for AP review have been posted and given to our AP students.  A schedule for Regents review sessions, which begin in May, will be mailed home.   As we enter the fourth quarter, all students need to focus on academic achievement and fulfilling graduation requirements.

Please join us on April 24th and 25th for the Masquers production of Grand Hotel.  
On April 15th we will have our 3rd annual College Fair.  It will be held from 7:00pm until 9:30pm in the high school gymnasium.  Over 90 four year and two year colleges, as well as branches of the military service will be participating.  We recommend that students in grades 8 through 12 attend this event.  It is never too early to start planning for college.

Remember that school will be open on Thursday, April 2nd and Friday, May 22nd in order to make up days that were lost due to snowstorms.   

It is always important to remind everyone that success in school is directly related to being in school every day, participating in class and taking advantage of all the opportunities we offer for extra help.  Please contact your student’s teachers and/or counselor, if you have any questions or concerns.  Working together we can insure that every student has a successful high school experience.

As always, we wish to thank all of you for your continued support.


Sincerely,
Roseann Cirnigliaro
Allen Hudson III

Glen Cove students had an opportunity to learn about their future educational prospects when the guidance department held its third annual College Fair in the high school gymnasium on April 15.

The event, which was attended by representative from more than 90 colleges and the Armed Forces, included two workshops: Financial Aid 101: Understanding the Financial Aid Process, presented by Vincent Tunstall, manager of new student enrollment at LIU Post, and Transitioning to College for Students with Disabilities, presented by Alyssa Provenzano, assistant director of disability services at New York Institute of Technology.

According to Interim Guidance Chairperson Diane Johnson, the fair provides district students with valuable information.

“It’s important for our youngsters to see the many opportunities available to them when they leave Glen Cove,” Johnson said. “There are also many careers that are constantly changing, and the people here can answer questions about careers that maybe didn’t exist five years ago.”

The Glen Cove High School Hero Club visited Connolly and Landing elementary schools to speak with fifth-grade classes about bullying.

The Hero Club and their adviser Vicki Gordon wanted to prepare the students for middle school by giving them tools to deal with and potentially avoid being the target of bullies, and to help make their transition a positive and empowering experience.

The club started their presentation with a short video created by junior Alizander Lizaso, a Glen Cove High School TV-3 Independent Study student. It continued with students participating in various activities, which included role-playing and games to educate them about the different types of bullying. They also learned about the victims of bullying, those who bully and how to be an upstander rather than a bystander. The fifth-grade students took the Hero Club Pledge and were provided with resources.

According to Gordon, Hero Club President Dana Maderakis and club members planned, organized and worked very hard on the presentations. She said the students enjoyed working with their school community and were happy to have an opportunity to reunite with their fifth-grade teachers.

“It was a fun and valuable experience for all. I am very proud of them,” Gordon said.
