Glen Cove High School, which is celebrating its 50th year in existence on site, marked the school’s 50th Homecoming with a day of tradition, triumph and Big Red pride. Students, alumni, families, and friends gathered at J. Cameron Maiden Field at GCHS to show their support for their Big Red Varsity Football team and the district’s six schools.
The annual Homecoming Parade included floats from GCHS and Finley Middle School as well as Landing, Connolly, Deasy and Gribbin elementary schools, the latter of which served as the parade starting point before proceeding up Walnut Avenue to Maiden Field. Students, parents, staff and representatives of the board of education and administration marched together to show their Glen Cove pride in anticipation of the big game. Members of the GCHS inaugural class of 1962 were also in attendance for the game, which pitted the 2-1 Big Red vs. the 2-1 South Side High School Cyclones.

Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Rob Chlebicki and Don Lang, director of the physical education department, presented their findings on how the district’s curriculum fits in with national and state standards and said they created a “North Shore standard” that incorporates what they feel are the most comprehensive and relevant areas for education, keeping in line with the questions that the board of education had previously given to them. Chlebicki said the next step is to get all of the health teachers – most of whom are coaches with busy schedules– to set a time to begin writing and refining the curriculum.

The workers are guaranteed health care for life and for a surviving spouse, for five years (this is not a reduction or increase, but the same as the current contract).
The first discussion relating to the primary district goals took place at Monday night’s Glen Cove School District Board of Education meeting, held at Robert M. Finley Middle School. Despite the absences of Superintendent Dr. Joseph A. Laria and Trustees Ida McQuair and Gail Nedbor-Gross, the meeting progressed smoothly and the discussion covered a lot of ground.
The evening’s discussion centered around the goals the board created pertaining to improving the percentages of students meeting or exceeding state proficiency standards in English Language Arts (ELA) and math assessment tests for grades three through six; improving the percentage of students graduating from high school, earning a Regents diploma with advanced distinction and reaching a college preparedness performance level; improving the number of students taking advanced placement (AP) courses as well as improving test scores; and completing the alignment of the grade level curricula with the common core standards, which should result in an improvement of scores on the ELA and math assessments in grades three through eight.
