Glen Cove High School


Welcome to Our School

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The beginning of school is always filled with excitement and anticipation. With the first day of school rapidly approaching, everyone at Glen Cove High School is busily preparing for the arrival of our students.  On behalf of the entire faculty and staff of Glen Cove High School it is my distinct pleasure to welcome all of you to what I hope will be a successful new school year.  We hope our students will take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities we have to offer them.  We will all be working together, faculty, staff, administrators and parents, to help our students achieve their academic potential.  We highly encourage each and every student to participate in as many extracurricular activities as possible throughout the school year.  This will further enable students to develop their talents and share their achievements with the whole school community.

Students are expected to report to school on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at 7:20 AM.  At this time they will receive their schedule and locker assignment in homeroom.  Homeroom lists will be posted on the walls in the main lobby by grade level in alphabetical order.  After a brief homeroom, students will report to their first period class and then continue to follow a full-day schedule for the remainder of the day.  If you wish to view your child’s schedule before September 3rd, please log on to the parent portal.  All students’ schedules, including homerooms, are posted on the parent portal.

Here at Glen Cove High School, our goal is to provide an atmosphere where teachers, students, administrators and parents work closely together to provide an environment that is a true school community.  We all have one goal, to ensure that our students have the best possible high school experience.  We look forward to working with you once again.

Orientation and fun for incoming freshman

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.  

Summer of Success

This summer, more than 20 incoming ninth-grade students participated in an intensive six-week Summer of Success Program. Throughout the program, the instructors, Frank Monteone and Sendi Diaz, provided interactive and challenging instruction in English Language Arts, global studies and mathematics. In addition, the students learned various note taking and study skill techniques. Upon the completion of the program, each student earned a certificate of completion and several individual awards.
