Welcome to Our School

January 2020

Dear Parents / Guardians:

I want to first wish the entire Glen Cove community a wonderful and healthy 2020!  Not only are we entering a new decade, it’s hard to imagine that at the end of this month, we will officially be at the midpoint of the school year and already in the process of planning for the subsequent school year and graduation!

There arae a couple of important dates in January you should be mindful of: First, family guidance meetings for juniors begin January 13th, offering information relative to the college application process and life after high school.  This will be a great opportunity to get a head start and develop a plan moving forward.  In addition, the high school will be hosting our parent orientation for incoming freshmen on January 16th.   As always, we encourage parents and students to participate and take advantage of these opportunities to have questions answered by our staff.

The midyear also marks our winter testing week.  Please note that Regents and Midterm exams will be administered the week of Tuesday, January 21st, meaning there will be no school for students, except those taking exams.  During this testing week, students will be administered Regents exams where applicable, as well as midterms and finals for semester courses.  (Please note that some of these exams will be administered in class prior to the testing week.)   It should also be noted that all juniors will sit for the Common Core English Regents and are recommended to attend review after school.  In fact, I would encourage all of our students to attend review and extra help in preparation for our exams.  Both the testing and review schedules were mailed home and are available on our website.

The second quarter and first semester of the school year ends on Friday, January 24th.  Remember, success in school is directly related to not only great attendance, but on a student’s willingness to learn and participate on a daily basis.  Please contact the school should you have any questions and let’s continue working together to insure our student’s success.

It really is a pleasure and an honor serving 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.

The Teen Court program recently had its first trial of the year at Glen Cove City Hall. The program serves as an educational experience for students and is operated in conjunction with Judge Richard McCord and Glen Cove City Court. Through the course, students learn about public speaking and the judicial process. In their first trial, Glen Cove High School students Yaire Tolentino, Nicolai Glouchkov, Antonio De Luca and Colin Gallagher served as prosecuting attorneys representing the people of the State of New York while Axelle Labaw, Elijah James and Elana Greim served as defense attorneys for a teen defendant. Sophomore Allyna James acted as judge, and the remaining Teen Court students served as jury members.  Teen Court will have one more trial in January before preparations begin for their second half trials, which will take place in May and June.

Glen Cove High School’s United States History & Government students recently participated in the Hamilton Education Program. The program, which aims to improve teaching and learning of American history, asked the students to integrate Alexander Hamilton and the Founding Era into regular classroom studies and then 65 students were invited to see the Broadway hit in New York City.

Junior, Casey Hill was selected to showcase her work from the classroom portion of the program on stage where she performed an original song, “Dear John” to the audience. All participating students then had a Q&A with the cast members of the show, followed by viewing the entire Hamilton musical.
