Welcome to Our School

June 2018

Dear Parents / Guardians:

This is my final letter for the 2017-2018 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. (Please note that all of our performances are recorded and posted on our website by GCTV.)  We also took an active role in the Glen Cove 350 Celebration by providing art installations and showcasing our talented student performers.  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 5 and 7 respectively.  Our students continue to be a great source of pride for our high school and community. 

Friday, June 8th is the last day of instruction at the high school.  Please note that seniors will be treated to a yearbook signing barbeque that afternoon, and our underclassmen will be prepping for finals and Regents exams.  Please note that unlike previous years, Tuesday June 5, will be designated as a testing day for the administration of the Global History Regents and our ninth grade final.  Aside from June 5, the standard testing schedule will run from Monday, June 11 through Thursday June 21.  A complete exam schedule is posted on the high school website.  Please note that only students being administered a final or Regents exam, are scheduled for a formal review session, or have an appointment will be admitted to the building from June 11 through June 21.  In addition, seniors will attend a mandatory graduation rehearsal and brunch on Friday, June 22, followed by their commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 23 at 10 a.m.  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 2018! 

Sincerely,
Antonio Santana

First Next Generation STEAM Fair

As the first year of the high school Scientific Research Literacy class comes to an end, students wrapped up their last competition of the year at the annual Next Generation STEAM Fair at the Cradle of Aviation.

Students competed against 16 teams from school districts across Long Island. The Scientific Research Literacy class had no prior experience in robotics and were tasked with using a SnappyXO robotics kit designed by Stony Brook University professor Dr. Anurag Purwar to propose and solve a problem related to space exploration. The problem could include space and surface travel, navigation, articulation and deployment. Students met with Dr. Purwar on April 10 and had the past six weeks to construct a robot designed to move and complete a task. Glen Cove High School students designed the robot to navigate autonomously and be able to pick up sample materials during a space exploration mission.

In attendance at the May 23 competition were Scientific Research Literacy class teacher Jillian Romano and Alexa Doeschner, district science coordinator. Given the short window of time, as well as the complexity of the college-level robotics kit, most competing teams did not have a working robot at the competition. Although the team did not win, our students were actively engaged in a productive struggle for the past six weeks, and were able to design, construct, wire and code a moving robot. 

From the numerous experiences students had in the Scientific Research Literacy class, one of the major takeaways was grit, a predictor of success, which is defined as perseverance and passion for long-term goals.



Glen Cove High School STEP Students Graduate

Students from Glen Cove High School who participated in the STEP (Science Technology Engineering Program) this past academic school year have graduated. 

Under the supervision of Glen Cove science teacher Ms. Jillian Romano, the students have been hard at work designing proposals and solutions to world problems and conducting research in science laboratories on a college campus, as well as designing robots to compete in multiple robotics tournaments. Beginning in September, students spent every Tuesday from 4-7 p.m. at New York Institute of Technology designing and conducting innovative projects. 

This program has positively affected the lives of participating students and guided them to focus on a science career path, which at one time only seemed like a dream. The STEP program has allowed these students to dream big and to realize that with hard work anything is possible.

The district’s baseball program was awarded equipment and a check for $2,500 through the MLB Baseball Tomorrow Fund in partnership with the New York Mets on May 20. Glen Cove High School baseball players Kiernan Calderon, Chris Capobianco and Jared Vanegas were invited to walk onto Citi Field and were recognized in front of the whole crowd for receiving this honor. In addition to the award, the players were able to watch the game from field level seats. The district would like to thank the MLB and the New York Mets for their generosity in providing our athletes with an amazing experience.

Under the direction of teacher Vicki Gordon, Glen Cove High School ceramics students created totems for Garvies Point Museum and Preserve. In all, there are five poles with a total of 100 pieces representing the 100th anniversary of Glen Cove’s incorporation as a city. The colorfully glazed ceramic pieces reflect the wildlife at Garvies Point. Several students assisted Ms. Gordon with the installation of the totems, which are now on permanent display in the picnic area. Ms. Gordon would like to thank Veronica Natale, director of Garvies Point Museum and Preserve, for welcoming the school’s 350/100 Celebration contribution and the staff for being so helpful. The ceramic students that participated in the installation of the sculptures were Jessica Alvarenga, Cindy Cruz, Emily Escobar, Dylan Pajuelo, Anissa Rosado, Frank Villalobos and Rosa Zavala.
