Welcome to Our School

Dear Parents/Guardians:

As we enter the month of March with spring just around the corner, we are already planning for the 2015-2016 school year.  The counselors are still in the process of meeting with every student in order to complete student course selections for the upcoming school year. There was a slight delay in holding these meetings due to the number of snow days we had in February. Once the counselors have met with every student, you will receive a list of the courses selected by your child. Specific information about any and all course requests will be provided with the mailing of the course selections.  Please contact your child’s guidance counselor in the event you have any questions about the courses your child selected.   As always, course availability is subject to change and may be eliminated due to low student enrollment and/or budgetary constraints.

March is a very busy month.  Spring sports begin on Monday, March 2nd.  The Red and Green Games will be held on Friday, March 13th.  Glen Cove’s Got Talent is scheduled for Thursday, March 19th and the Senior Fashion Show will be presented on Friday, March 27th.  On Friday, March 20th the Key Club together with the Glen Cove High School Select Chorale is sponsoring Serve One Another, a fund raiser for the North Shore Inn.  These are just a few of the worthwhile activities in which our students are involved. We encourage our students to be active participants in the Glen Cove School Community.  This type of connection has proven to be directly related to success in school.

Please remember that school is closed on Friday, March 20th for students as our faculty will be attending instructional workshops as part of Superintendent’s Conference Day.  We wish to thank all of you for your continued support in helping all of our students to be as successful as possible.  Please make note of the information in the March virtual backpack.

Students Participate in Teens on the Job Shadow Day

Fourteen Glen Cove High School students had an opportunity to spend the day job shadowing a career of their interest as part of the City of Glen Cove Youth Bureau’s Teens on the Job Shadow Day.

For more than 10 years, the City of Glen Cove Youth Bureau and Glen Cove High School have collaborated to expose sophomore students to a typical workday experience of a desired career. During the five-hour day, students pair up and spend time with career mentors, who share details of what each job entails, while providing insight into the skills and education required. The career mentors also offer information on any pathways to obtaining those skills.

Students had an opportunity to shadow career mentors at several local businesses, including Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery and Aquarium, Glen Cove Police Department, Glen Cove Hospital, Long Island Academy of Fine Arts, Radio Shack and the View Grill.

Green Prevails at Red and Green Games


Glen Cove students showed their school spirit during the district’ annual Red and Green Games, held at Glen Cove High School on March 13.

The friendly competition, which raised money for the district’s Community Scholarship Fund, consists of two teams facing off in a variety of events, including relay races, handball and dodgeball. The red team was made up of high school students who attended Deasy and Landing elementary schools, while the green team consisted of students who attended Gribbin and Connolly schools.

Also participating in the event were children from the elementary schools, who were dressed in red and green to support their respective buildings. The students enjoyed participating in several relay activities with assistance from the high school students.

The green team was victorious, winning two of three activities at the event.  After the winner was announced, high school seniors from both teams challenged district faculty members in a volleyball game. The faculty members came out on top, winning the game!


GCHS Students Create Podcast Book Reviews

Students in Lauren Jensen’s 10th-grade honors classes are creating podcast book reviews to share with fellow schoolmates.

The 10th-graders used Audacity software to record scripts of book reviews they had written based on their second-quarter independent reading assignments. Jensen, along with Library Media Specialist Arlene Munson, worked with the students, instructing them on the fundamentals of recording as well as how to embed music onto their file. They also helped students export their podcasts to Jensen’s wiki page (a blog-like site).     

Once completed, the podcasts will be posted to Glen Cove High School’s Library Media Center homepage, giving other students an opportunity to learn about book selections available at the library.
