Important Letter to Parents


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".

In celebration of National Nutrition Month, Matthew Millan, a first-grader in Antoinette Hatzopoulos' class, was excited to have his mom give a hands-on nutrition lesson to his classmates.

Sharon Millan, a registered dietician, taught students about a colorful food plate and making healthy choices. The students then chose items from each food group to create their own healthy plate. Best of all, they ate everything.  

Some of their choices included turkey, peanut butter, apples, pears, carrots, peppers, cucumbers and bread sticks.  They also used circulars and created a meal by cutting out pictures that represented food from each food group. 

After the visit with Mrs. Millan, students headed off to physical education class with Mr. Mark Checola, where they learned about having a healthy heart by eating nutritious foods and getting regular exercise. 

The students expressed their thoughts by writing thank you letters to Mrs. Millan.


Book Fairies at Gribbin

Book Fairies at Gribbin
Gribbin students demonstrated what it means to be compassionate and generous by donating hundreds of their gently used books to The Book Fairies, a charitable organization that collects reading materials for people in need throughout the metropolitan area.  

The school’s site committee organized an assembly with Lily Hoffman, a Finley Middle School student and Book Fairies volunteer and a Book Fairies coordinator to educate the elementary students on the organization’s mission. They embarked on the initiative to reinforce compassion, caring and empathy amongst the school community.
