Ten Glen Cove High School students were recognized at the Dec. 16 Glen Cove City School District Board of Education meeting for having the highest grade point averages in their class.
“Given the extraordinary circumstances that our students faced over the last school year, this achievement is all the more remarkable,” said Glen Cove High School Principal Tony Santana, who added that the students are a source of Glen Cove pride.
“I know that it has not been your traditional and typical school year or end of school year last year and it doesn’t seem that the traditional will be back as soon as we all would like,” Glen Cove City School District Superintendent Dr. Maria L. Rianna said, “but I want to note how proud I am of all our students, our top 10 students.”
Students have been extraordinary in adjusting to their learning environment, she said, adding that despite the challenges they face, they remain dedicated and committed to their studies.
“I look forward to sitting with you and actually meeting with you as the year goes on,” she said.
