Welcome to Our School

November 2018

Dear Parents / Guardians:

The month of October was filled with many exciting events at the high school.  We hosted two college fairs for our juniors and seniors, a very successful movie night with approximately 200 students in attendance, (thank you PTSA), spirit week which culminated in our pep rally and homecoming game, Trick-or-Treat Street, Rachel’s Challenge and will continue to bring exciting experiences to the high school.  Needless to say, our students and staff continue to make me proud as the building principal.

As we continue to promote positive changes in the building, we ask our parents and families to continue promoting student success at home by having conversations with their children about not only the importance of attending class and arriving on time, but putting forth their best effort.  There is a lot of support and resources available at the high school, so please encourage your children to take advantage.  Let’s continue working together to keep our students focused on academic success.  Please note that the first marking period ends on Thursday, November 8th and report cards will be issued the following week.  As a reminder, you can check your child’s progress via the Parent Portal on either your computer or mobile device.  Should you have any questions about accessing the Parent Portal, please contact your child’s guidance counselor. 

It should also be noted that school will be closed for students on Election Day, November 6th, as well as Veteran’s Day on November 12th. We will also be closed in observance of the Thanksgiving Day Holiday on November 21st, 22nd and 23rd. 

Finally I am happy to announce that in the spirit of Thanksgiving, we will be hosting our second annual “Glen Cove Gives Back” benefit concert on Friday, November 16th.  Glen Cove Gives Back will feature musical performances on a night we will be encouraging community members to donate to a local cause.  This year we will be raising funds for our own Frank “Frog” Petrizzo to help pay medical expenses associated with his need for a kidney transplant.  More that wishing him well, we want to show our support for one of our own.  We have always been impressed on how Glen Cove comes together for the betterment of our community and its members. 

I cannot emphasize enough what a privilege it is to serve 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. Please follow me on Twitter @Mr.TonySantana for school updates and happenings. 

On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, we wish the Glen Cove community a very Happy Thanksgiving.

The community came out in droves to participate in Glen Cove High School’s annual homecoming celebration on Oct. 20. Schools were represented by colorful and creative floats as students, administrators and community members marched down Walnut Street in the homecoming parade. The marching band kept everyone in step and spectators cheered as they watched Glen Cove students showcase their Big Red pride.

The halftime show had remarkable routines by the drumline, junior varsity cheerleaders and varsity cheerleaders, who were followed by a dazzling performance by the marching band and kickline team. Congratulations to homecoming queen Arlene Cajavilca and king Jesse Mayreis.
Glen Cove worked hard and had an exceptional performance as they took on the Floral Park Memorial High School Knights. Unfortunately, they came up short and were defeated, 27-22. However, there were many outstanding plays made by Big Red.

Glen Cove High School students in Mrs. Susan Poulos’ AP United States Government and Politics classes visited the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County, where they listened to powerful and inspirational testimony by Holocaust survivor Stephen Berger and an informative presentation from Director of Youth Education Helen Turner on Oct. 12.  

The full-day experience served as inspiration for the seniors’ upcoming political science research/civics project. AP United States Government and Politics requires students to explore how they can affect and are affected by government and politics throughout their life. The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center provided a program to support this research project by enlightening the students on how to become the change agent for tolerance and openness.
Sheena Rachel Jacob, coordinator for social studies, expressed her gratitude to Mr. Berger, Ms. Turner, Emily Berkowitz, Breanne Brooks, Ilise Friedman and the Holocaust Memorial Tolerance Center of Nassau County for spending a day with the students. She also thanked Mrs. Poulos for organizing this trip and Mr. Brett Rubin, who assisted.

National Manufacturing Day at Precipart

On National Manufacturing Day, 16 Glen Cove High School students from the Honors Introduction to Mechatronics class and three other interested students attended a field trip to visit Precipart Corp.’s manufacturing facility on Oct. 5.  

Precipart is a global company that focuses on the manufacturing of precision mechanical parts such as gears. These precision parts can be as small as the tiny parts of a minute medical device that images the inside of the human body, or as strong as the deploying mechanism on the ejection seat of a fighter jet. As part of National Manufacturing Day, Glen Cove students joined students from Farmingdale State College to tour the various buildings of the corporation.  
The day began with a presentation by Precipart CEO John Walter, who discussed, among other things, the job prospects for engineers and machinists, including the positions available at Precipart. Students were asked to wear safety goggles as they visited every aspect of the facility from administration to manufacturing to assembly and finally to shipping. Students were impressed with the behind-the-scenes access to the entire manufacturing process. Parts were being machined in real time in front of their eyes, and they had the chance to ask questions of the different supervisors on the manufacturing floor. 
Students were particularly excited to hear that one of the young men who was working with a robotic arm had been recruited by Precipart when he toured during National Manufacturing Day through his high school program. This young man also mentioned that he was currently taking mechatronics classes at Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology. Students immediately felt a connection with him due to the fact that they are also currently enrolled in a mechatronics class.  
In attendance on National Manufacturing Day in addition to students were Coordinator of Science Alexa Doeschner, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Maria Rianna and mechatronics teacher Brian Smith. This trip was facilitated by Board trustee Mr. Robert Field, who works for Precipart Corp. At the end of the tour, Mr. Field graciously extended an open invitation to the students of Glen Cove High School to attend National Manufacturing Day each year.
