Welcome to Our School

February 2019

Dear Parents / Guardians:

We are very happy to have our January Regents and midterm examinations behind us as we officially begin the second half of the school year. Please note that this is the time of year when planning for the next school year commences.  A huge part of that process is the development of the master schedule which first involves teachers making recommendations and students selecting their respective courses. We are very excited to report that pending the passage of our school budget, we are implementing a nine period day in the upcoming school year. This gives our students more options to earn credits and enroll in more courses. To this end, guidance counselors will meet with students during the first couple of weeks of February and at month’s end, parents and guardians will be forwarded a letter confirming their child’s respective course selections.  Any questions or concerns regarding course selections can be forwarded to your child’s guidance counselor.  It should also be noted that course availability is contingent upon student enrollment and as such, may be subject to change. Finalized schedules for the 2019–2020 school year will be available in August.

Finally, while we have been spared inclement weather up to this point, I want to remind all of our families to please refer to the district website for information regarding the status of schools, as well as our delayed opening schedule, should the need arise.  If we have a delayed opening, please be reminded that first period begins at 9:30 a.m. with shortened periods running throughout the day until dismissal at 2:02 p.m.  In addition to our district website, information regarding the weather, athletic events, and general information can be found on our Glen Cove City Schools App which is available for smartphones, as well as on the Parent Portal.

It really is a pleasure and honor serving the Glen Cove community as your High School Principal.  Should you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 801-7610, and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @MrTonySantana.

Sincerely,
Antonio Santana

Fifth-Graders Learn About the Holocaust

Fifth-grade students from Connolly and Landing schools recently visited the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County, where they participated in a guided instructional tour of the museum and heard testimony from Felice Katz.

Ms. Katz’s mother, Etunia “Ethel” Bauer Katz, grew up in Buczacz, Poland, which is now part of Ukraine. The German army entered the town in 1941, followed closely by mobile killing squads who murdered Ethel’s twin brother along with other young Jewish men in a forest near the town. The rest of her family escaped immediate destruction by hiding in barns and fields for several years, relying upon their non-Jewish neighbors for food. Ethel’s family members were eventually murdered in their hiding place, and she narrowly escaped and survived the last few months of the war on her own. The Soviet Army liberated her town in 1944, and after the war, Ethel immigrated to the United States, where she raised a family. She has written a memoir of her experiences during the Holocaust, “Our Tomorrows Never Came.”  

The Glen Cove social studies department and the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County have created a civic education program beginning in fifth grade that promotes and empowers our students to become upstanders. The center provided documents to all teachers and building principals that offered a brief overview of the Holocaust along with a glossary of words to help the students prepare for the trip. The teachers did a fantastic job preparing the students with the historical content. Kudos to all the fifth-grade teachers and building principals Ben Roberts and Julie Mullan for preparation and planning.


 

Speakers Share History With District Students

Glen Cove High School and Finley Middle School students were visited by NY1 news reporter and author Cheryl Wills and Sheryl Goodine, a former district administrator and president of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Commission, in honor of Black History Month.

Mrs. Wills took students on a compelling journey through the lens of her childhood. During the 1970s, as she sat in social studies class learning about confederates in the Civil War, she never learned that she was a direct descendant of an enslaved man named Sandy Wills, who also served in the Civil War with President Lincoln’s United States Colored Troops. She learned of the connection when she began researching her family’s history after her father’s death. During her presentation, Mrs. Wills encouraged students to learn their families’ history and to embrace who they are.  

Ms. Goodine, who has deep roots in Glen Cove, also shared her family history with the students. Her father, James Davis, marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and he, along with the Glen Cove NAACP, was instrumental in desegregating Glen Cove City Schools and the city’s fire department. 

The presentations concluded with students asking questions of Mrs. Wills and Ms. Goodine. District Coordinator of Social Studies Sheena Jacob said the presentation reinforced the importance of remembering Black History Month and civic action.

Hudson Hits Basketball Milestone

Congratulations to Glen Cove High School senior Trinity Hudson, who scored her 1,000th point in the Nassau A-III basketball game against Levittown Division High School on Jan. 29. 

Trinity’s 1,000th point came on a layup in the first quarter. She scored a total of 24 points in the game. This huge accomplishment reflects her dedication and commitment over the past six years to the girls’ varsity basketball program. Among the many honors she has received thus far in her career at Glen Cove High School, she is currently the leading scorer in Nassau County, averaging 24.5 points per game, and third in scoring on Long Island. Furthermore, Trinity has amassed a total of 1,077 points, which makes her the second leading all-time scorer in Glen Cove girls basketball history behind her sister, Taylah Hudson.

Earlier this year, Trinity signed her national letter of intent to play basketball at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York, on a full scholarship.   

Honor Societies Ready for National Competition

Members of Glen Cove High School’s National and Math honor societies are preparing for the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad on Jan. 24. 

The olympiad is a national contest for high-school students in which they solve linguistic puzzles. When students solve these puzzles using logic skills, they learn about the diversity and consistency of language.  

On Jan. 13, students, along with their club advisers Laura Makula and Liana Caesar-Quaye, visited LIU Post’s campus to practice solving linguistics puzzles. The group worked alongside a computational linguistics professor and a New York University graduate student.
