Welcome To Our School

The Eugene J. Gribbin Primary School was built in 1966. Our school was named after Mr. Gribbin, a former principal at Glen Cove High School as well as a Superintendent for the district in 1941. Mr. Gribbin's name was synonymous with education in Glen Cove for many years.

Currently Gribbin School houses 382 students in grades k-2.

The entire staff is dedicated to educating and nurturing the whole child. We strive for a safe and secure environment where every child is encouraged to excel.

"The lesson you teach today is not confined to the walls of the classroom. Once it is implanted in the heart and mind of a child it can change the world".

Collaborative Lessons Ready Students for Cultural Arts Experience

Collaborative Lessons Ready Students for Cultural Arts Experience photo

On March 1, Gribbin School students were treated to a cultural arts show at the Tilles Center, thanks to the Gribbin School PTA. The Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure show incorporated movement, music, puppetry, art, technology and science.

Leading up to the event, special area teachers worked together on activities designed to deepen the meaning of the performance experience, using the Tilles Center Arts-in-Education Aesthetic Model. Art teacher LeeAnn Palazzo had students create art projects that aligned with the creatures presented in the performance. Music teacher JoAnn Criblez and physical education teacher Mark Checola collaborated on a team lesson that had the students moving through space and working cooperatively as big, prehistoric creatures. A great time was had by all!
