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.

    Junior Rising Stars Celebrated


    Landing students who have demonstrated a strong work ethic and consistent improvement in their classes were celebrated as 2014-15 Junior Rising Stars at a recent school assembly.

    The children, who were identified by their classroom teachers for recognition, were given a certificate, ribbon and trophy for their hard work. Superintendent of Schools Maria Rianna and Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Technology Dr. Michael Israel joined Landing Principal Dimitri Kryoneris in praising the students.

    “I commend you all on your hard work,” Rianna said. “We are very proud and hope you will continue to work as hard as you can to make your dreams come true.”

    Two students from each class at Landing were selected as Junior Rising Stars. Parents of the students honored were also in attendance at the assembly.


    Celebrating Dr. Seuss

    Landing students in Maria DePace's and Allison Hernandez’s classes recently visited Deasy School to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss, who would have turned 111 on March 2.

    The two classes worked with Meryl Gordon’s and Diane DePietro's first-grade classes. The children read “Green Eggs and Ham” and found the rhyming patterns in Dr. Seuss’ books. They also drew green eggs and ham and finished with a surprise green eggs and ham treat.

    Wiesner Places Second in NBA FIT, Dribble, Dish & Swish

    Landing student Parker Wiesner took second place in the All-Star finals of the NBA FIT Dribble, Dish & Swish contest held during NBA All-Star Weekend in New York City from Feb. 13-15.

    Wiesner competed against approximately 46,000 students at the event. He recently enjoyed sharing his experience with other Landing students during their physical education classes. Wiesner dressed in NBA clothes and brought his plaque and trophy to share with fellow schoolmates.

    Spelling Bee at Landing

    Twelve Landing School fifth-graders had the opportunity to demonstrate their spelling skills as they participated in the annual Scripps Spelling Bee on Jan. 7.  

    Ciaran Greene, Ryan Houghton, Allayna Hurston-James, Exau Maldonado, Virginia Papasidero, Mathew Salinas, Samantha Seery, Doris Serrano, Jaden Thom, Joseph Thom, Rafael Cruz Villalobos and Miranda Weiser competed against each other in the bee.  All of the students had previously won their classroom contests.

    Landing teachers Margaret Clark and Denise Pawlowski moderated the contest, while Susan Fiumara and Karen Serani served as floor judges. Clark did a fantastic job of putting the spellers at ease throughout the competition with her kind and supportive words and her creative and witty sentences that accompanied each spelling word. Pawlowski prepared the extensive word lists for the contestants and helped acquaint them with the rules and regulations of the competition.  

     “We had some really talented spellers who participated this year,” said Pawlowski. “It would have been impossible to predict a winner.” Clark added, “I was so impressed by the students’ dedication and commitment to this spelling bee. It took a total of 175 words, a new school record, before we could declare an official winner.”  
    Congratulations to Miranda Weiser, this year’s first-place spelling bee winner, and runner-up Joseph Thom.
