August 9 9 marked the end of the 2013 Glen Cove After 3 Summer Program. It was also Showcase Day, and the program ended with great success.
This summer program was the program that almost didn’t happen, since no grant was received from New York State this year. Nonetheless, due to the dedication and commitment of the Glen Cove After 3 staff, the educational summer program ran with a vast variety of activities and trips offered all at a reasonable fee for parents.
The dedication of the staff and youth participation was made clear with the displays of creative and educational projects, many reflecting our theme on natural disasters.
While some in college still aren’t decided on what field they would like to pursue, a recent graduate at Finley Middle School in Glen Cove already is thinking about psychiatry and nursing school.
Roselle Cacio discovered her love for science in seventh grade while studying life science and decided to re-discover her interest in the field for five days during her summer.
Cacio, along with 23 other area high school students, recently took part in a Medical School/Camp Program sponsored by Adelphi University and Winthrop-University Hospital.
With the support of the United World Foundation and Irina Sushko, the Glen Cove After-3 students had a chance to visit the Cradle of Aviation. This was no ordinary trip, as the students experienced special classes and a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum. Some of the classes they attended were Living In Space, All About the Stars and a Rockets program.
The Glen Cove Board of Education has appointed Dimitri Kryoneris as principal of Landing Elementary School. Kryoneris takes over for Interim Principal Martin Malone, who came out of retirement to serve following the promotion of Dr. Michael Israel to assistant superintendent for curriculum, instruction and technology last summer.
Demonstrating their knowledge and intellect regarding international issues, three Glen Cove High School students, along with their adviser Christopher Contorno, participated in the Foreign Policy Association Conference on June 28 at the New York University Midtown Center. The students – Michael Banks, Christopher Christodoulou and Daniel Wlordarczyck – are all members of the school’s Model United Nations Club.
The conference provides teachers whose instruction focuses on foreign policy issues with important skills and knowledge to bring back to their respective classrooms through a variety of workshops and special speakers. In a session called the “Pilot Classroom,” students took part in a sample lesson taught by one of the teachers at the institute. Following this lesson, the students visited the headquarters of J.P. Morgan Chase and had lunch with Ambassador Jeffrey DeLaurentis, U.S. alternate representative for special political affairs at the United Nations. During this meeting, Ambassador DeLaurentis (seen here with Daniel, Chris and Michael) spoke to the students about foreign policy issues facing the United States and the nation’s current position in the realm of international relations, followed by a question-and-answer session.
