Welcome to Our School

October 2019

Dear Parents / Guardians:

We are happy to report that the school year is off to a great start.  Students and staff have acclimated well to the new school year and we are looking forward to many great things ahead.  During the month of September, meetings were held with each grade level, school administrators and support staff that addressed students not just on our expectations in terms of student decorum, but on all the resources available to help make their high school careers successful.  We also hosted our first PTSA meeting and are hoping for the continued involvement of our parents and community members. 

October is an extremely busy month for students and staff alike.  Progress reports will be issued, we will be hosting several college fairs and senior meetings with guidance counselors have already been scheduled.  We are also hosting several College Board examinations.  The ACT will be administered at the high school on Saturday, October 26th. (Please note that the school calendar contains the registration dates for all of these exams and seniors should be mindful of college application deadlines. Information is available in the guidance office as well as on our website.)  Unlike the other College Board exams, the PSAT will be administered to all sophomores and juniors on Wednesday, October 16th, and school will be closed for our freshman and seniors.  Please note that sophomores and juniors will have a modified day and details will be forwarded to parents as the date approaches.  Should you have any questions about any of the aforementioned information, please contact your child’s guidance counselor.

Glen Cove High School is hosting its Open School Night on Thursday, October 3rdfrom 7-9 p.m.  The night provides an excellent opportunity for parents and guardians to meet their child’s respective teachers and gain familiarity with course expectations for the year.  Aside from academic programs, we are also hosting our PTSA sponsored Movie Night on October 24th and the National Honor Society’s “Trick-or-Trick Street” on Wednesday, October 30th.  The Halloween inspired night provides the community’s children with an opportunity to dress up in costumes and participate in fun activities in a safe setting. 

Fall sports are underway and our student athletes have been hard at work.  The high school’s pep rally is scheduled for Friday, October 11th, followed by the Homecoming parade and game on Saturday, October 12th.  The PTSA is also sponsoring a carnival for children of all ages with a variety of activities available for the younger members of our community.  Through the efforts of the athletic department and the Booster Club, Glen Cove will be bringing back the “Big Red Army”.  The Big Army is a display of school spirit during athletic events in which everyone wears red. Big Red Army T-Shirts will be available for sale at the high school and during the game.  Glen Cove will be facing Lawrence High School and we will be showing our Glen Cove Pride, so please come out to support our student athletes and display our Glen Cove Pride! 

Finally, we would like to remind you that on Tuesday, October 22nd, residents will have an opportunity to vote on a Bond Referendum with two propositions to repair and renovate all of the district’s schools.  An approved bond would support major repairs to address mandated building code compliance issues, safety and security issues, infrastructure repairs and improvements to instructional spaces and athletic facilities.  It is important to ensure the future health and safety of our children. We ask that you please save the date and remember to vote.

Your involvement in our various events and organizations is very important to our school.  Thanks again for your continued support and it really is a pleasure serving the Glen Cove community. 

 

Sincerely,
Antonio Santana

Ninth grade social studies students at GCHS were visited by Helen Turner, the director of the Youth Education-Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County, who presented “Understanding Impact: Deconstruction Symbols of Hate.” Ms. Turner spent the entire day at Glen Cove High School discussing the power of kindness and making informed decisions that are not bias or discriminatory. 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.
