School Pride Personified in Red vs. Green Games

The 2012 edition of Glen Cove School District’s annual Red vs. Green Games went to the Red Team this year, as students and staff came out in support of their former (and in some cases current) elementary schools. In a series of games and fanfare that demonstrated ability, creativity and school spirit, the Red Team, representing Deasy and Landing Elementary Schools, defeated the Gribbin and Connolly Elementary School Green Team for the second consecutive year.

Participants donned the color of their allegiance, as points were awarded for the best representation of team through colored shirts, posters in the crowd, the loudest cheering fans and of course, how the teams faired in competition. Current elementary school students were invited to share in the fun, showing off their arms in a Nerf ball toss. Current Glen Cove High School students represented their former elementary school in the games, with the Red Team earning the right to play a team of district staff members in volleyball. Unlike last year, however, the faculty prevailed!

Proceeds raised from the gate were once again donated to the Glen Cove Community Scholarship Fund for the awarding of scholarships for deserving graduating seniors in the Class of 2012.
