Glen Cove Board of Education President Joel Sunshine joined other former runners and friends and family of Albert “AJ” Johnson in dedicating the Glen Cove High School track in honor of the late Glen Cove High School track coach.
A graduate of Glen Cove High School, Johnson retired in 1999 following a 30-year career as an art teacher and track and cross-country coach in Glen Cove. He passed away three years ago, and the dedication was fittingly held on his birthday.
Portledge School hosted its 38th Commencement Exercises on Friday, June 14. Family and friends gathered on the Gimbel Lawn under a tent to share this joyous occasion. The Class of 2013 graduated 39 students, several of whom have been at the school since early childhood.
Under the direction of Brittney Frank, the Finley Middle School seventh-grade band was awarded the highest level of Gold at the 2013 NYSSMA Majors Festival held at Hofstra University on May 22. Bands, choruses, and orchestras from around Long Island performed at the festival and are graded by two adjudicators. The Finley seventh-grade band performed three pieces, which were also performed at this year’s spring concert.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, students at Deasy Elementary School recognized their gratitude and appreciation of their mothers with the annual Mother’s Day Tea. Through songs, poems and stories, the students thanked their moms and talked about why they are special, expressing their creativity through the presentations. The second-graders, who had been preparing their materials for the past week, created picture frames and books, which featured a variety of written work, for their guests. Students and parents were also able to share breakfast together in celebration of Mother’s Day.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for students to spend the week preparing songs, stories and some original work that helps them understand how much work their mothers do and how hard it is to be a mom,” said Principal Nomi Rosen. “I think it really makes them feel a special empathy and appreciation for their moms.”
On Saturday, April 20, the North Shore High School presented the traditional Senior Fashion Show. Forty-eight girls and 31 guys (all high school seniors) participated in this exciting event. The show was fantastic and fun!
