June 2020


Dear Glen Cove High School Community,


June is typically a month full of joy and excitement as we look forward to celebrating the end of the school year, student accomplishments, and our senior class who are completing their careers in public education. It is an emotional time of year for all of us and tragically, the year was cut short by the international health crisis that has taken such a toll on our communities. More than that, we are experiencing a time of unprecedented civil unrest as we watch the turmoil that has erupted in many of our cities. Now more than ever, it is imperative that our Glen Cove High School community not only embrace all of the values we hold true; tolerance, acceptance, diversity, and equity for all of our stakeholders, but keep to our P.R.I.D.E. mantra which asks all of us to be prepared, respectful, involved, diligent, and ethical. Our students are our future; they are strong and resilient and I am optimistic that they will continue to rise above and have the wisdom and compassion to affect positive change. 


This coming month we will be celebrating our senior class with a variety of activities that will hopefully shed some positivity on the year. Our Music Department has already visited our seniors, the athletics department will be acknowledging senior athletes throughout the month, on June 18 we will be posting our senior awards on our website, on June 11 high school staff members will be delivering senior care packages to every senior in the community, that’s over 260 homes! In lieu of our seniors visiting elementary school buildings in their caps-and-gowns, on June 18 we will also  be hosting a campus car parade through the high school campus which will feature staff from all our respective school buildings. Unfortunately we have not finalized a date or format for our graduation as we are waiting to see if the guidance from the Governor will change, allowing for the ‘live’ event our seniors deserve. Information on all of the aforementioned will be provided to the community in a timely fashion. 


Please note that June 12 will be the last day of instruction for high school students, though teachers will be available through June 17.  We are again encouraging our students to continue working on their courses and participating in our distance learning. This is especially true for our seniors as we need to ensure they earn their credits, enabling the school to certify their graduation status. Should students have had any difficulties completing the work or if there are any concerns regarding a senior’s graduation status, please reach out to the respective guidance counselor at your earliest convenience and we will work to resolve the concerns. 


We are thankful for all of the help and support we have received from our parents and the overall community; for our teaching staff who made the adjustment to our Distance Learning Program as smooth as possible; for our students who have continued to participate in their education and especially our A.P. students who overwhelmingly participated in the examinations despite the new format; and of course all of the support staff that has helped in a variety of ways. It is the amazing character of the Glen Cove community that ultimately stands out to us during these tough times and continues to be our greatest source of pride.


Thank you for your patience and understanding and for your unwavering support. As always, it is a real pleasure serving the Glen Cove community as your high school principal. 



Sincerely,
Antonio Santana

Seniors Learn Importance of Voting

On May 28 seniors virtually met with NYS Assemblyman Charles Levine to discuss voting, its history, the government and the importance of the 2020 Presidential Election. The event was organized by the social studies department because the 2020 election will be the first time voting for many seniors. Meeting with Assemblyman Levine provided students with an outlet to discuss their concerns about the government with a focus on social, economic, and political aspects. Students who attended also gained knowledge of the history behind casting a vote, its privilege, how the government functions and how it adapts in the face of challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, Assemblyman Levine stressed to the students the impact of voting in local and special elections within their community.

The meeting gave students the opportunity to d the importance of the 2020 election and understand the complexities of the 2020 election due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For many seniors the 2020 Presidential Election will be their first time voting and the meeting gave them the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the United States government, knowing the history behind casting a vote will allow for students to have a better understanding of their government and how the government will change in the face of adversity.

During the week of April 13, the High School and Middle School teamed up to embark on a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Instructional Week. Throughout the week, students from both schools participated in daily lessons and activities focused on social-emotional learning, mindfulness, mental health, and self-reflection. As part of the activities, students were asked to create digital thank you cards to show gratitude to first responders and essential workers within the Glen Cove community. These cards were sent digitally to the local post office, police and fire departments, hospital, and grocery stores to spread cheer and thanks during this difficult time.
