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!

Glen Cove Class of 2018 Begins Bright Future

Glen Cove High School’s Class of 2018 knew that graduation would be worth the wait. Delayed from Saturday to Sunday, the graduation ceremony on June 24 was held under crisp blue skies, with the bold sun reflecting the bright future waiting for the newest Glen Cove Knights alumni.

The graduates marched onto J.C. Maiden Field as the high school band played the traditional “Pomp and Circumstance” and friends and family applauded and cheered. Following performances by the concert choir, honored speakers shared words of wisdom and reflections on the Class of 2018.

Superintendent Dr. Maria L. Rianna and high school Principal Antonio Santana shared their pride in the class, wishing them luck in their future endeavors and applauding their successes while at Glen Cove High School.

Board of Education President Amy Franklin, whose daughter is a member of the Class of 2018, told the graduates not to be scared of the future. “Just don’t ever give up,” she said. “You’ll be fine. Just remember Glen Cove will forever be your home, a place where you can always come to find support and guidance.”

Valedictorian John Dong acknowledged the support of family and teachers in helping the class succeed. “To the parents and families that have stood with us and behind us, no matter the obstacle or cost, thank you.” Dong asked his own parents to rise from their seats in the stands so he could publicly thank them for all they have done for him.

In his address to his fellow graduates, salutatorian Brandon Kolanovic reminded his peers that they are now adults. “In front of us is a new chapter, whether it be attending college, working or just soaking up some free time – the responsibility to dictate the future is in our hands.”

Reflections from class president Talia Sakhaee and honorarian Isabel Blas included memories of hard work, friendship and fun. As is tradition, the graduates chose a faculty member to speak at the graduation ceremony. After completing his first year at Glen Cove High School, Ryan Pearsall stood at the podium honored that the students had accepted him, respected him and invited him to be part of their special day.

The Class of 2018 marched off the field, leaving the high school as a group for the last time, but they left an indelible mark.

This coming September, Jolee is headed to Stony Brook University on a full-tuition scholarship to study biomedical engineering.

Glen Cove Alums Visit Honors Anatomy and Physiology Classes

Three Glen Cove alums recently spoke to the Honors Anatomy and Physiology students about the transition from high school studies into pre-health majors in college. 

Caitlin Brown, ’15, a senior nursing major and varsity softball player at Wilkes University, shared her expertise on how to balance the rigors of studies and athletics, while Selena Guastella, ’15, a senior nursing major at Adelphi University and professional EMT for Northwell Health, encouraged students to seek outside clinical experiences while in college to make relevant what they learn in the classroom. Maria Krisch, ’16, a junior pre-medical student and undergraduate teaching assistant at Fordham University, explained study strategies and the requirements necessary to apply to medical school and other health-allied professional graduate programs.

“It is extremely valuable for my current students to get to speak with young, successful, pre-health majors who sat in their same seats just a few years ago,” said teacher Fran Krisch. “It’s a perfect way to end the year and shows the students that they really do have all the tools necessary to do well in pre-health majors if they choose to do so.”

Senior Walk Brings Nostalgia for Class of 2018

Senior Walk Brings Nostalgia for Class of 2018 photo

Glen Cove High School’s senior class took a trip down memory lane during the school’s first-ever Senior Walk on June 15.

Wearing their graduation caps and gowns, the Class of 2018 visited Connolly and Landing schools to reminisce about their time in the district. The senior students walked through the hallways of the elementary buildings to cheers and congratulations by the district’s younger students. They also received high fives and hugs from teachers and students alike. 

Assistant Principal Allen Hudson, who accompanied the students on the trip, said the school’s student government officers came up with the idea to commemorate their time in the district. Congratulations, Class of 2018!
