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.

    Landing Students Shine at Science Fair


    Landing School fifth-graders presented unique scientific experiments to schoolmates and family members at a science fair on March 17.

    Prior to the fair, the students conducted online research on different topics and selected an experiment they hoped to complete. After receiving their teacher’s approval, they were guided step-by-step on the scientific method and how to create their desired experiment. They tested their experiments at home and created poster boards that reflected their work.

    Fifth-grade teacher Denise Reynolds said participation in the science fair enhances self-esteem while giving students an opportunity to practice public speaking. She also indicated that the process encourages students to think more critically.

    “By testing different variables, they are going to see some type of reaction, which will show them that there’s a scientific reason for whether or not their experiment worked,” she said.

      Principal Benjamin Roberts thanked all of the outstanding teachers and supportive families who made the fifth-grade science fair a huge success.     
    “I am so very proud of our students for their hard work, creativity and ingenuity in making their science fair projects,” Roberts said. “All of our students were extremely proud of their projects and were even more excited to explain to fellow students, teachers and special guests what they learned.”
