Principal's Corner

June 1, 2023

The month of May has been a whirlwind of activity.  May events included our Class of 2023 Academic Awards, our Sports Awards Banquet, the annual volleyball and basketball tournaments and our Spring Talent Show.  June looks to be just as hectic with our Parent Association elections, Prom, The Spring Concert and Art Show, the student field day, and of course The Class of 2023 Commencement Exercises at Queens College.  It is a lot of work for Team Grover Cleveland and many late nights, but celebrating academic, athletic, and artistic talent is worth all of the time and effort.  

As we strive for educational excellence, know that all of our programs including our artistic, athletic and academics will continue to grow and thrive in the 2023-2024 School year.  Thanks to Mayor Adams, Chancellor Banks and The State of New York, our upcoming budget will continue to sustain programs of excellence for all of our children.  In 2023 look for the following exciting changes at Grover Cleveland High School

And so much more.
