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.

    Mrs. Hazen and Ms. Orlando's fifth grade class recently completed a lesson on Martin Luther King, Jr. in observance of the leader’s birthday. The lesson taught the students about Dr. King’s life and work. Each student then created friendship hands with words of peace on them. Later, the students partnered to make a creation using play-doh that they felt represented MLK and wrote a brief explanation about their creation.

    Twice a year since 1994, the students at Landing School have had their physical fitness levels tested. This year, two physical fitness records were broken. Third grader Marco McMillan broke the P.A.C.E.R. record with 71 laps; breaking the previous record of 66 (2017-2018) held simultaneously, by Bryan Guerra and Cameron Alan. In his first FitnessGram test Marco completed 51 push-ups, 50 curl-ups, and 34 inches flexibility exceeding the standard scores for his age group. Fifth grader Gwyneth Perez, broke the girls flexibility record of 50 centimeters held since 2009 by Victoria Tripp. Gwyneth scored an amazing 51 centimeters and her score had to be added to the flexibility tester to accommodate her record, as the machine only goes to 50 cm.

    Kudos to the previous record holders for setting such high standards and congratulations to the new record holders Marco and Gwyneth!
