Welcome to Our School

April 2018

Dear Parents / Guardians:

I am hoping that along with this letter comes milder weather and an end to the nor’easters that seemed intent on disrupting the onset of spring.  Given the last couple of storms, it’s hard to believe that not only are we officially in spring, but that the third marking period is quickly coming to an end.  Friday, April 13th marks the end of the third quarter and the start of our final stretch towards the end of the school year.  This is in fact one of the busiest times of the school year with multiple school functions, spring sports and the onset of our testing season with the administration of AP exams in early May. 

Review for the upcoming AP exams has already started and we encourage our students to take advantage of both our supplemental review sessions as well as our daily extra-help as we prepare for the College Board exams.  Now more than ever, it is imperative that students buckle down, attend class, and continue working towards a successful end to the school year. Seniors need to be especially conscientious of their respective graduation requirements as we approach graduation.  To this end, meetings have already been scheduled with seniors.  However, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the guidance department at 801-7670.

Aside from testing and academics, our spring sports season is well underway.  Please come out to support our student athletes as they compete for Glen Cove pride.  We are also hosting our annual International Night, College and Career Fair, and this year’s spring musical, Beauty and the Beast!  I am very much excited about all these events happening in April and am hoping to see the community come out and support our students.  Please check out our website for specific times and dates. 

Finally, it’s always important to remind everyone that success in school is directly related to attending school on a daily basis, participating in class and taking advantage of all the opportunities we offer for extra help.  Please contact your child’s teachers and/or counselor should you have any questions or concerns.  Working together we can insure that every student has a successful high school experience. 

It is a real pleasure serving the Glen Cove community as your high school principal.  Best wishes for a restful and relaxing spring break!

Glen Cove High School seniors attended a voter education and registration workshop on April 11.

The activity was hosted by the Nassau County Board of Elections to allow the students that will be 18 years of age by the next general election on Nov. 6 and are eligible, to vote. A bipartisan team came to the school with instructional materials and guided students through the process of properly completing registration forms. They also brought a voting machine to demonstrate and familiarize the students with the actual process of entering their ballot. Meaningful discussions about the importance of citizens voting and civic duty were discussed.

Glen Cove High School hosted nearly 150 students at a Mock Interview Day on April 16.

Students from various classes in the English Department sat with professionals from outside the education field for a five- to 10-minute, one-on-one interview. The purpose of the activity was to prepare students for future careers by obtaining practical and necessary interview practice while still in high school. The interviewers treated the students as though they were applicants attempting to gain career-type positions.  

Some of the professionals included Glen Cove Mayor Tim Tenke; Glen Cove School Board President Amy Franklin; representatives from Northwell Health, New York Institute of Technology, private firms and public organizations; and other local government officials. The day was a tremendous success thanks to Work-Based Learning Coordinator Jason Smiloff and Youth Bureau Program Coordinator Jacquelyn Yonick. Glen Cove High School looks forward to future career-readiness events.

Community services, delicious food and traditional ethnic music and dance were featured when Glen Cove High School hosted its fourth annual International Night on April 16.

The evening was organized by World Language and English as a New Language Coordinator Monica Chavez to share information and express appreciation of the Hispanic community. Before the celebration of food and dance, members of the community had an opportunity to learn about health insurance, local library resources, the Glen Cove Boys and Girls Club, Glen Cove Hospital and more. Some participants also enjoyed getting henna tattoos. 

Glen Cove High School dance club members Maria Fernanda Aquilar, Eduardo Mancia, Dayrin Menjivar and Anderson Valasquez wowed those in attendance with a salsa and reggaetón dance. The group worked hard to prepare for the event, under the direction of teacher Clare Germino. While the guests in attendance enjoyed the delicious food and music, they had an opportunity to view students’ wonderful poems that lined the walls of the cafeteria. 

Ms. Chavez expressed her gratitude to everyone who helped out at the event and those from the school community that attended. 


Two Years, Two Wins, Spark! Challenge Success for GCHS

Twenty-seven students from Glen Cove High School competed against students from across New York City and Long Island in Northwell Health's Spark! Challenge on April 12.  

One of the three teams, comprised of 11 students, placed first in the poster competition, winning $5,000.  For the Spark! Challenge, each team was responsible for engaging in a shadowing day where they learned about one of the following health care fields: telehealth, art therapy and emergency room nursing.  Each team took away incredible experiences from the shadowing days, which they translated into a poster and oral presentation. Both the poster and the oral presentation were judged by administrators from Northwell Health. This is the second year that Mrs. Fran Krisch has led the teams as the teacher advisor under the support of Coordinator of Science Alexa Doeschner. It is also the second consecutive year that students from Glen Cove High school won this competition.  

Glen Cove High School art teacher Mr. Stephen Lombardo assisted Mrs. Krisch and her students with the graphic design programs that were needed to render and submit the artwork entries. He was essential to the students' success.

Members of the administration and the entire school community are proud of the hard work students demonstrated during each phase of the challenge, and hopes the entire Glen Cove community will extend a well-deserved congratulations to all students who participated in the Spark! Challenge.
