Landing Elementary School student Anthony Guillen, a fifth-grader from Glen Cove, competed Sunday, Feb. 10 at the third annual Hofstra Long Island Regional Scripps Spelling Bee.
Like many other students, he was nervous before the spelling began, but he braved the stage with confidence. During the first round, he spelled the word cosmos; however, he was knocked out of the challenge when the words became very difficult.
At the North Shore Board of Education/town meeting held last month, Superintendent Dr. Edward Melnick presented the initial 2014-15 budget for the North Shore School District.
He outlined the budget goals for the next school year, and clarified that trustees and administration would maintain a budget that is responsive to current economic pressure and remains within the permissible tax levy limit; resources in the budget would be reallocated to fund initiatives aligned with the district’s vision and mission (e.g. IB Program and World Language Program); and the district will work collaboratively with the community in the preparation of the budget.
The North Shore High School senior class performed their senior play last month, The Boarding House Reach, a comical story about a boy named Lucas Maxwell, played by Warren Estler, who rents out the rooms of his home to strangers when his parents leave on a business trip so he can make money to buy a bike.
The Glen Cove Board of Education and Glen Cove High School administration honored 35 students who were named Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars for the 2013-14 school year. Certificates were awarded by GCHS Principal Roseann Cirnigliaro and Assistant
Principals Allen Hudson and Nadine Wheeler to those AP Scholars who were in attendance at the Jan. 13 board planning meeting. The ceremony is scheduled every January when many students who have already graduated return to Glen Cove during the semester break. Certificates will be mailed to AP honorees who could not be in attendance.
North Shore High School students Kevin Henneberger and Nick Green were recently honored for designing a historic World Trade Center Memorial on the North Shore High School campus for everyone in the community to visit for many years to come. Their winning design was chosen from numerous student drawings by Principal Albert Cousins along with many administrators and faculty at the high school.
Last year, Henneberger and Green were ninth-graders in Laura Green’s design and drawing for production class when they utilized interdisciplinary skills including art, traditional and digital design, math, architectural drawing, and public speaking to design the winning base for an artifact from the World Trade Center. The students also had to create a landscape design of the memorial site by measuring the dimensions of the entire location behind the high school.
