Welcome to Our School

October 2018

Dear Parents / Guardians:

Glen Cove High School is very excited about the upcoming school year and is looking forward to a fantastic start.  Student athletes are already in the midst of their respective practices and the sounds of our pep band have already filled the school’s hallways.  Needless to say, we are more than ready to join our students, staff, and community members as we embark on another school year representing growth and increased student achievement. 

Glen Cove High School’s focus continues to be improving student achievement through the promotion of a positive and supportive learning environment.  To this end, we are continuing our Glen Cove P.R.I.D.E initiative which correlates our continued work in providing our students with a welcoming, nurturing and productive learning environment. P.R.I.D.E. represents our expectation that students are Prepared, Respectful, Involved, Diligent, and Ethical; and that we all should manifest pride in ourselves, our school, and our community.  We are also participating in Rachel’s Challenge, including the formation of a Friends of Rachel Club to support ongoing philanthropy and community service.  Additionally, we will be starting a chapter of the Gay and Straight Alliance or GSA, a club that serves as a support for all types of students who may feel disenfranchised. The idea is to foster a compassionate, supportive, and inclusive learning environment for our students. We are also offering new courses such as Megatronics, AP Computer Science, Computer Science Essentials, AP Research, and Digital Film Making. Finally, we are embarking on the districts 1:1 digital device initiative and will be distributing Chromebooks to all of our freshmen and sophomores. These are just a few of the initiatives we are undertaking in the upcoming year and we are very excited about the progress we have made and will continue to make as the year progresses. 

Please be reminded that students are expected to report back to school on Tuesday, September 4th at 7:20 in the morning.  Upon arrival, students will report to their respective homerooms where students will receive their ID cards, locker assignments, and schedules.  Please note that homeroom locations will be listed by grade and alphabet and posted throughout the lobby and cafeterias.  After the brief homeroom, students will report to their first period class and continue on a ‘Day A’ schedule for the remainder of the day.  If you wish to view student schedules, including homeroom assignments, prior to September 4th, they will be available on the parent portal.

In terms of student safety, it is imperative that students carry their ID’s at all times – the same applies to the high school faculty.  Beyond safety, please note that there is a direct correlation between attendance and achievement and it is important that student attend class on a consistent basis.  As a reminder to parents, attendance and grades can again be monitored on the parent portal at any time, so please take advantage of this feature as we work together to support our students.  We also want to encourage students to take full advantage of our sports, clubs, and academic offerings in the upcoming year.  To this end, it’s essential that we; staff, administrators, parents, and community members, all continue working together to encourage our students to not only achieve their academic potential, but to participate in as many extracurricular activities as possible.

Our goal at Glen Cove High School is to provide an atmosphere where teachers, students, administrators and parents work closely together to provide an environment that is a true reflection of a positive and supportive community – all working collaboratively towards the same goal, which is to provide our students with the best high school experience possible. 

It really is a pleasure serving Glen Cove as its high school principal and I am very much looking forward to a great school year. 

Sincerely,
Antonio Santana

Glen Cove High School ninth-graders were visited by Helen Turner, director of Youth Education at the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County, on Oct. 3.  

Ms. Turner presented “Understanding Impact: Deconstructing Symbols of Hate,” which focused on the power of kindness and making informed decisions that are not biased or discriminatory, during the students’ social studies classes. The presentation empowered students to become upstanders and understand that their actions and decisions should be based on morals and values that will encourage and support openness and diversity.
 
Special thanks to Ms. Turner and the Holocaust Memorial Tolerance Center of Nassau County in Glen Cove for this powerful presentation.

Students from Glen Cove High School participated in WE Day at Barclays Center on Sept. 26. Glen Cove High School is a WE School that is committed to help others locally and internationally. 

WE Day was an inspiring event where students learned about the amazing initiatives of fellow peers and how they are building stronger communities. The students celebrated the community service that has been completed to make the world a better place. They were also honored to hear motivational speakers, including Sarah Michelle Geller and Martin Luther King III, and motivational singers such as Nas and Sofia Carson. 

Students interested in doing a WE community service project can contact Mrs. Cuomo or Mrs. Makula in the high school.
