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

Downloading Google Data for Graduating Seniors

As our graduating seniors prepare to move on, we wanted to let you know about a tool that will allow them to take all of the files, documents and other information that they have built up in their Glen Cove Google account with them.

Google Takeout is a tool that lets users download whatever data they choose from their Google account to be saved or used with other programs and services outside of Google. It can be accessed by signing in to a Glen Cove Google account and then going to takeout.google.com

If you are planning to download any information from a student Google account, please do so by 8/1/19. After that date, account access for seniors who have graduated will be disabled.

The Glen Cove High School Wind Ensemble, Mixed Chorus and Select Chorale traveled to Hofstra University on May 20 and May 21 to perform at the 2019 NYSSMA Major Organization Festival. All three groups prepared repertoire that was performed in front of two adjudicators and were then rated based on their performances. The guidelines used for judging are rigorous and require extra preparation from the groups. The wind ensemble and mixed chorus were given a top rating of Gold, while the select chorale was awarded the prestigious Gold with Distinction rating. Congratulations to all those who participated! 
 

Students Collaborate to Create Ocean-Inspired Art

The Student Senate, led by Ms. Susan Poulos, visited kindergarten and second grade classrooms at Gribbin and Deasy elementary schools to teach and create ocean-inspired paper art with the younger students. The Students Rebuild Program sponsors this project. This year’s theme is Ocean Challenge/Ocean Conservation. For every piece of artwork the students created, the Bezos Family Foundation donated $2 to programs training coastal youth in ocean conservation and coral restoration. Thank you to Addison Huvane, a Student Senate member who brought and inspired members of Student Senate to participate with this civic action project.

Special thanks to Principal Antonio Santana, Principal Francine Santoro, Principal Melanie Arfman, Mrs. Susan Poulos and all the faculty and staff who supported this program. A total of $ 1,338 in donations was raised from this project by creating a 669 pieces of artwork.
