Welcome To Our School

Welcome to Landing School, also known as "the Friendly School!" Landing is a special place for so many reasons. It is a place where we pride ourselves on being a family. As Landing principal, I am proud of my caring and nurturing faculty and staff, who are committed to bringing each and every child a full and enriched educational experience. We strive each day to reach our personal goals and celebrate our many successes. We value our cultural diversity and learn to be appreciative of the unique qualities that make us who we are. At Landing School, we understand that learning styles are individual and varied, and we search continually for ways to reach all learners, so that each child can realize his or her own personal potential.

Our PTA is an integral part of our family, and provides our students with a variety of fun and educational experiences throughout the school year.

Our On-Site Committee meets regularly to discuss ways in which we can be proactive as a school community and keep our learning environment a positive and productive one. We consider local community members (Glen Cove seniors, policemen, etc.) to be our extended family members and encourage their participation in our many outreach programs.

As you can see, Landing School is more than just an elementary is our home.

    Robotics Club Cultivates Students’ Coding Abilities

    District elementary students are taking their computer coding skills to the next level thanks to the district’s new Robotics Club.
    The club members, made of students in grades four and five at Connolly and Landing schools, recently took part in the Wonder League Robotics Competition. As part of the contest, students were charged with programming two robots “Dash” and “Dot”  using their iPads and the Wonder app to complete four different challenges. The students worked in teams, writing code to navigate the different movement of their robots, such as distance, speed, angles of movement and the turning on and off of lights.
    After completing missions, each group shared their work on the Wonder League website. STEAM teacher Kenneth Altamirano said the club has allowed students to build on their coding skills, teamwork and logic.

    “It really has stretched the coding skills the students have learned in their STEAM classes.” Altamirano said. “It also has taught them perseverance,  determination, problem solving and critical thinking. Everyone on the team has a role.”     

    Landing Takes Part in Floorball Hockey Program


    Landing Elementary School participated in a floorball hockey program offered by the New York Islanders outreach program in partnership with Generation Floorball.

    The New York Islanders provided their own branded pinnies, elementary student-sized hockey sticks and floorballs for the two-week unit. Students learned various skills related to ice hockey in their physical education classes and practiced them throughout the unit.

    The floorball hockey unit culminated on Nov. 10 with a visit from Sparky the Dragon, the New York Islander mascot. Sparky joined classes, practiced skills and answered yes or no questions from students. Since Sparky can’t speak, he was eager to reply to questions with a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. He was able to answer every question asked and graciously posed for pictures with students. Posters were made by Laura Ann Grande’s and Catherine Gambino’s fifth-grade classes to welcome Sparky to Landing School.

    Physical education teacher Karen Serani extended her gratitude to the New York Islanders and Generation Floorball for the outreach program, saying “It was a wonderful two weeks.”
