Welcome to Our School

November 2019

Dear Parents / Guardians:

The month of October was filled with many exciting events at the high school.  We hosted two college fairs for our juniors and seniors, our PTSA sponsored movie night, spirit week which culminated in our pep rally and homecoming game, presentations by the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center, Trick-or-Treat Street, various educational trips and a trip to Broadway to see Aladdin.  Needless to say, our students and staff continue to make me proud as the building principal.

As we continue to promote positive changes in the building, we ask our parents and families to continue promoting student success at home by having conversations with their children about not only the importance of attending class and arriving on time, but putting forth their best effort.  There is a lot of support and resources available at the high school, so please encourage your children to take advantage.  Let’s continue working together to keep our students focused on academic success.  Please note that the first marking period ends on Friday, November 8th and report cards will be issued the following week.  As a reminder, you can check your child’s progress via the Parent Portal on either your computer or mobile device.  Should you have any questions about accessing the Portal, please contact your child’s guidance counselor. 

It should also be noted that school will be closed for students on Election Day, November 5th, as well as Veteran’s Day on November 11th.  We will also be closed in observance of the Thanksgiving Day Holiday on November 27th, 28th and 29th. 

Finally I am happy to announce that in the spirit of Thanksgiving, we will be hosting our second annual “Glen Cove Gives Back” Benefit Concert on Friday, November 22nd.  Glen Cove Gives Back will feature musical performances on that night we will be encouraging community members to donate to a local cause.  This year we will be raising funds for the local soup kitchen as well as collecting non-perishable items for the high school’s food pantry which will be operating in the very near future.  We have always been impressed on how Glen Cove comes together for the betterment of our community and its members. 

I cannot emphasize enough what a privilege it is to serve 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.  Please follow me on Twitter @Mr.TonySantana for school updates and happenings. 

On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, we wish the Glen Cove community a very Happy Thanksgiving.
