Welcome to Our School

March 2018

Dear Parents / Guardians:

While February is the shortest month of the year, Glen Cove High School students participated in a multitude of positive and rewarding experiences. Sophomores attended a performance of Jabber at Long Island University’s Tilles center; the high school hosted a medical day of service in collaboration with NYIT in which medical students spoke of their unique pathways towards a career in the medical field; students and staff donated 83 ‘blessing bags’ to local charities; students visited Gribbin Elementary School to speak about overcoming adversity and finding their inner ‘wonder’; and we had the privilege of having Ms. Sheryl Goodine speak to our students about the Civil Rights movement in Glen Cove.  In addition, Mr. Jason Smiloff, our Work Based Learning Coordinator, organized a meeting of the IAB (Industry Advisory Board) that was comprised of approximately 25 professionals, including a Nassau County legislator, representatives from nearly a dozen local public organizations, college representatives, medical professionals, educators, private business professionals, and current and former high school students all collaborating to develop goals for the community and student body. 

Mr. Smiloff will be available to students on Mondays and Fridays to secure work, internships and the potential for earning high school credit for those experiences. These are only a few of the experiences we have had this past month and I am excited to keep the momentum going as we forge into spring.

March will also prove to be an extremely busy and exciting month in terms of spring sports and scheduled school activities; from the Red and Green Games and Glen Cove’s Got Talent to our Junior Prom and Senior Fashion Show – there is a lot in store for our students and community.  So please look at the school calendar and come out to not only be entertained, but to support our students and school community.  It is through your involvement that we pave the way toward success in school.

Please note that we have already started the scheduling process for the next school year. Guidance counselors have met with students with regards to course selections and have been inputting requests in our student management system.  We are excited to be adding AP Research, Second Year Science Research, Megatronics, Digital Film Making, Reading and Responding to Fiction and Nonfiction, and Computer Science Essentials to our academic program and are very much looking forward to continuing to expand learning opportunities for our students.  Please note that families will receive a list of their child’s specific course requests and recommendations later in the spring.  Information regarding these courses will be provided in the mailing, however, should you have any questions or concerns with regards to your child’s schedule, please contact the guidance department at your convenience.

Finally, let’s not be fooled by longer days and warmer weather!  It may seem like spring is quickly making its way back as we forge into the second half of the school year, but judging from prior years, let’s not underestimate Mother Nature as we have had snow in March and April.  So please be mindful of upcoming weather events and potential school closings and delays. 

As always, I want to thank you for your continued support in helping all our students be as successful as possible.  It really is a pleasure serving the Glen Cove community as its high school principal.

Glen Cove High School junior Anthony Condo had his poster selected to be the official poster for the City of Glen Cove’s 350th anniversary celebration. The school’s media arts class competed in the contest, which invited local students to tackle the event poster designed to promote the upcoming activities around the city, under the direction of teacher Stephen Lombardo.  

Principal Antonio Santana and assistant principals Allen Hudson III and Katie Prudente joined several members of the city’s 350 Committee as they celebrated Anthony and provided a pizza party for the entire class. Anthony received a certificate from the mayor and will be providing printing specs to the Glen Cove Printery, which is printing the poster, soon to be seen all around town.

Students Compete at Medical Marvels Competition

For the first time, students from Glen Cove High School participated in the 6th annual Medical Marvels competition through Northwell Health.  

Along with their teacher, Ms. Jillian Romano, students Adam Rami Hassan, Andrew Palafox, Mikael Barajas, Emma Spoto and Carina Gigliotti from the Science Research Literacy class attended the competition on March 9, competing against teams from 22 high schools from across Long Island and Queens. 

In preparation for the competition, students worked on a 14-page paper, where they proposed their own original solution to the national opioid crisis. In addition, students were tasked with creating a scientific display board to showcase their proposal. Finally, students were responsible for a two-minute oral presentation, which was followed by a one-minute question-and-answer session. A highlight from the students’ presentation was the detailed scientific description of their clinical investigation that studied the effects of decreasing the dosage of opioids without a patient’s knowledge. The students predicted that the slow decrease in dosage would allow patients to recover from addiction at a faster rate. Students explained that they would administer a number of surveys, physical fitness tests and brain imaging techniques to validate the physiological effect of their experiment. 

Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Technology Dr. Michael Israel and District Coordinator of Science Ms. Alexa Doeschner attended the competition and stated how impressed they were with the incredible amount of work and energy that went into this endeavor.

The Roaring ’20s Come to Life for High School Juniors

Glen Cove High School juniors in Allison Butler’s 11H and 11 ENL classes embraced the Roaring ’20s on Feb. 28.
The day began with students viewing their classes’ completed research papers and display boards on the Roaring ’20s, which were exhibited in the school’s Gallery Walk held in the cafeteria during first period. Mrs. Butler extended a special thanks to student Andrew Wonska, who serenaded students with a violin solo, and Melissa Johnides’ photography class, who served as unyielding paparazzi.  

The day continued with the classes touring Oheka Castle in Huntington, where they learned about its history, took fabulous pictures and enjoyed a formal tea with their peers. The castle was the perfect, opulent setting to mark the students’ conclusion of reading F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.”
