Held in the school’s mini center, the event served as a culmination to the students’ studies on immigration. The gathering included presentations research projects as well as a feast of foods from different countries around the world.
First- and second-graders at Deasy Elementary School have been studying the natural environments in and around Glen Cove, literally learning the lay of the land – and water, for that matter.
The Glen Cove High School Music Department announced that eight students have been selected to participate as All-State musicians in the 78th Annual New York State School Music Association Winter Conference in Rochester, on Dec. 5-8.

On Nov. 4, seventh-graders got a special treat when guest speaker Captain Wile, a pilot with Southwest Airlines (and a father in the community) visited North Shore Middle School to teach about the Physics of Flight.
As part of the forces unit in science, the students eagerly listened to Captain Wile as he explained how airplanes fly by utilizing the Four Forces of Flight including lift, gravity, thrust, and drag. Captain Wile discussed Bernoulli’s Principle and
Newton’s Law in relation to flying Boeing 737 airplanes.
Last month, the Career Exploration program at the Glen Cove After 3 Middle School took a tour of the Glen Cove High School and met with Assistant Principal Allen Hudson and high school junior Caitlin Brown to discuss high school from a student’s perspective. Brown, a past employee of the Youth Bureau’s SYEP program, is a Teens As Teachers (T.A.T.) member, a varsity athlete since her freshman year, and very active in the music department.
