The Glen Cove High School’s spring play, Man of La Mancha, was recently performed at the high school. Attendees raved about the students’ performance.
The Glen Cove Council of PTAs held its Annual Community Scholarship Fund Event at the Swan Club earlier this spring. This year the PTA Council introduced its first annual Diamond Club to honor dynamic individuals who have brought a positive effect on the school community. Honorees are selected from PTA units’ members, parents, school volunteers, administrators, faculty and staff. The first Diamond Club inductees are Nomi Rosen, Dr. Michael Israel, Rosemarie Sekelsky, Brittney Frank Rifkind, Mary Murphy and Suzanne Anderson.
Before traveling this summer to teach in Alaska and Florida, Irina Lebedeva will present the talent of her Long Island Ballet Academy & Dance students at the school’s spring recital. This year the annual event takes place on May 30 at 5:30 p.m. at the studio in Sea Cliff.
The recital will begin with a glimpse of what classes are like for Lebedeva’s students, ages 3 to 18. The students will stretch and warm up at the barre. Afterwards, students will present group dances including the Grand Pas de Quatre, originally choreographed for great ballerinas in 1845, the Pas de Trois des Odalisques and as a finale for all students, the Grande Tarantella.
The Builders Club of The After 3 Program are on the move again. This group of kids are asking local merchants to display a donation can for their current fundraiser, “Help Save the North Shore Shelter.”
The North Shore Shelter is housed in the Presbyterian Church on the corners of School and North Streets in Glen Cove. The purpose of this shelter is to house the homeless men of the community during the cold months of November through March.
With a pilot program lending iPads to all middle schoolers, Friends Academy is exploring the leading edge of education technology, but the grand old technology of ink on paper took center stage at the school’s annual Book Fair, a tradition since 1990, that ran through May 1.
By all accounts it was a smashing success—record-smashing, that is, with the bake sale raking in nearly twice its usual take. The final tally for the fair itself was not available as of press time.
“We do raise a lot of money for the libraries, but it’s not about the numbers,” said Judith James, library director at Friends. “It’s to promote kids loving books. We want them to have some physical experience with books. There’s something different about the tangible book on the table.”
