Tiegerman Re-Launches Middle School
In New Glen Cove Location
Students to Give New Life to Historic ‘Coles School’ Building
GLEN COVE, NEW YORK – JULY 10, 2019 Area residents with fond memories of the Coles School are invited to see their beloved revitalized school at the re-opening of this historic building as the new location of Tiegerman Middle School on September 26th at 10am. First constructed in 1928, the Coles school building is named for the Glen Cove family with deep ties to the earliest New England colonies and the history of Glen Cove. Tiegerman is proud to be a part of this tradition and to be carrying forward the educational legacy of the building. The building is the new “second home” to approximately 150 extraordinary 6th through 8th grade students with developmental disabilities and autism spectrum disorders.
The community is invited to join Tiegerman for a celebratory ribbon-cutting for the new building on September 26th at 10am. Residents of Glen Cove and surrounding communities, local businesses, and Tiegerman friends and families have the opportunity to be a part of the Coles School legacy by paving a path to students’ success with personalized bricks to be placed in front of the building (see photo example). Bricks range from $100 - $500 and can include company logos. To create a brick with your name or dedicate to a loved one, visit Tiegerman.org/brick.
