Welcome to Our School

June 2019

Dear Parents / Guardians:

This is our final letter for the 2018-2019 school year!  That said, June is perhaps the busiest time of year for the High School.  This past month we enjoyed performances by all of our performing groups during our spring concerts which were absolutely fantastic.  Speaking of talent, the high school acknowledged student achievement at both our National Honor Society Induction Ceremony and our Underclassmen and Senior Awards Night.  Congratulations again to all the students recognized!  This coming month we will continue acknowledging student achievement at our Varsity Athletic Awards Night and the Tri-M Music Honor Society Induction on June 4 and 6 respectively.  Our students continue to be a great source of pride for our high school and community. 

Friday, June 14th is the last day of instruction at the high school.  Please note while this is a regular day of instruction, seniors will be treated to a yearbook signing barbeque during the afternoon.  In addition to in class finals and projects, our Regents testing schedule will run from Monday, June 17 through Tuesday, June 25.  A complete exam schedule is posted below and has been mailed home.  During testing, only students being administered a final or Regents exam, scheduled for a formal review session, or have an appointment will be admitted to the building.  In addition, seniors must attend a mandatory graduation rehearsal and brunch on Wednesday, June 26, followed by their commencement ceremony that evening at 6 p.m.  (In the event of rain, the ceremony will be held indoors.  There is no rain date for the commencement ceremony).  We are very much looking forward to celebrating this milestone.

In terms of finals and Regents exams, it is recommended that students place all required examination material (pens, pencils, and calculators) in a clear Ziploc bag.  As per NYSED regulations, book bags, papers, cell phones and other electronic devices are not permitted in the testing room.  A student’s test will be declared invalid simply by the fact that he/she is in possession of an electronic device in a testing area.  It is no longer a question of whether or not the student used the device to illegally transmit information.  Just having the electronic device in their possession will cause the examination to be considered invalid.  We will collect cell phones and/or any other communication device from students who bring them to school during testing weeks.  Needless to say, please continue to encourage your children to attend extra help and Regents review as they prepare for a successful end to the school year.

Finally, we want to thank you for your continued support.  Without your encouragement and assistance, our students could not have made all of the wonderful accomplishments that have made this past year yet another success.  On behalf of the faculty and staff at Glen Cove High School, we wish you an enjoyable and safe summer break.

Congratulations Class of 2019! 

Sincerely,
Antonio Santana

Glen Cove High School seniors marked the end of their high school careers surrounded by family members, administrators, teachers and friends at their commencement ceremony on June 26.

The high school band played “Pomp and Circumstance” as the Class of 2019 processed onto J.C. Maiden Field. Seniors and co-class presidents Lucy Costello and Aamaiyah Vaughan led those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance, which was followed by the by the school’s concert choir singing the national anthem. The group also performed the school’s alma mater, conducted by senior Julianna Willson.  

Principal Antonio Santana told the graduating class how much he would miss them, as they began at the high school the same year he did. He also explained that success is not measured by material items.

“Please remember success is not measured in things we accumulate, by cars, jewelry and money,” Mr. Santana said. “It is measured in the worth we have as individuals and in our communities. It’s not a function of income or fame, it’s not labels or titles. Success is measured in good deeds. It’s about the power we all have to make positive change and enhance just not only our lives, but the lives of people that matter to us and the people in our communities.”

Mr. Santana also recognized student Derek Cosme, who was killed in 2017, saying, “I know you are here with us today, and I know that you can feel the love we have for you.” 

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Maria Rianna told students their families will always be their greatest supporters and reminded them that their families, teachers, principal and she realize how special they are.  

“Each of you have a gift that only you can give the world,” Dr. Rianna said. “You may not fully realize what that gift is yet or how you might use it in the future, but you will. In the next few years, you will discover so much and have so much more to explore. Now is the time that the real work begins.” 

Board of Education President Gail Nedbor-Gross told the seniors that they have come a long way in Glen Cove schools and to think of their time in the district like building a house. 

“You’ve now successfully completed building the foundation,” Ms. Nedbor-Gross said. “From here, you’ll continue to build a life and hopefully have many, many more accomplishments.” 

Salutatorian Mackenzie Edwards reflected on change and acknowledged that while change has an impact on our lives, some things stay the same.   

“Our foundation is made up of our memories, our family and our friends,” she said. “It is what we have achieved in this school and in this life. It is ours forever.”

Honorarian Christina Cavallone reminded students that although high school was over, the imprints they made at Glen Cove High School would stay with them for the rest of their lives. 

Each year, the graduating class selects a faculty member to speak. Security guard Michael Curran was chosen and told students it was a pleasure to watch them grow over the past four years. Mr. Curran’s speech, which was met with cheers and applause, was peppered with jokes, much to the delight of students. 

Valedictorian Matthew Tran said he realized that his classmates may have mixed feelings about leaving high school, but said he was happy. 

“I’m happy that we are taking the next steps in our lives and on our way to becoming the young adults we already think we are. Even though we are leaving high school, Glen Cove will always have a special place in our hearts.”

The ceremony continued with each student receiving their diplomas. It concluded with the tassel ceremony and the tossing of the caps. Congratulations!
