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 school....it is our home.

Welcome!

    Landing School’s Field Day was held on May 25. During the event, this year’s New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance Excellence in Physical Education awards were given to Frank Andrade and Jaylin Neder. Exceptional fitness physical education trophies were given to students Heather Alvarado, Vera Glouchkov, Devon Gonzalez, Grace Guillen, Jordan Pardo, Jayden Ramirez, Mayleen Chavez Reyes, Kailey Yanes Rosa, Ryan Sita and Davin Young. In addition, Corey Freeman and Mariela Hernandez were awarded the Courage Trophy, which is given to a student who demonstrates superior courage throughout the school year.

    Fitness plays a big role in the physical education program at Landing School. Students try to improve their fitness levels by participating in various activities throughout the academic school year. Students take baseline and summative fitness tests to document individual improvements. A number of students achieved 80 situps on both their prefitness and postfitness tests for curl-ups. That is an incredible achievement. Congratulations to those students and to all those who achieved 80 curl-ups! 

    Teachers, staff and parents participated in the adult water balloon toss to the delight of the students. Many thanks to Ms. Conti, our water balloon station leader, for her return to Landing School for this special day and special thanks to Mrs. Amy Mendrinos for her assistance in the early morning setup. A special note of thanks to Mrs. Lisa Galante-Cipriano for her Field Day photographs.

    Field Day was a success thanks to Mrs. Buhr and Mrs. Jimenez, Landing PTA, Principal Benjamin Roberts, parents, staff, custodians Mr. Anthony Grazioso and Mr. Basile, Building and Grounds, and especially DJ Pace Entertainment. Physical education teacher Karen Serani extended her appreciation to all those who made Field Day a success!

    Landing Duo Breaks School’s PACER Fitness Record

    Landing Elementary School students are constantly working to improve their fitness levels during physical education classes throughout the academic school year. This year, two third-grade students were able to break Landing’s cardiovascular PACER fitness test record.

    Congratulations to Cameron Allan and Bryan Guerra, who both achieved 66 laps on the PACER test, breaking the 3-year-old record held by Jonathan Patino.

    Cameron and Bryan completed this achievement by taking the test side by side and completing 66 laps simultaneously. The exiting score for fifth-grade students is 40 laps, so these two young boys far surpassed their cardiovascular fitness level for their ages in third grade.

    They were given a certificate at Landing School’s Field Day to acknowledge this wonderful achievement.
