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.

    Student Artwork Selected for PARP

    The artwork of Connolly School’s Dana Levy and Landing School’s Carlos Rivas was selected as the official designs for the district’s Parents As Reading Partners program.
    The students’ drawings focused on this year’s PARP theme, “Once a PARP a Time,” which will be featured on materials distributed throughout the district’s elementary buildings. PARP is a statewide PTA program that asks parents to read with their children for at least 15 minutes daily.

    Students Read with Seniors

    Landing School students spent time with adults from the Glen Cove Senior Center as part of the school’s Senior Volunteer Program.

    The weekly program, which gathers students with senior citizens for approximately 45 minutes, allows participants an opportunity to get to know one another while reading and completing word searches and crossword puzzles.

    Fourth-grade teachers Maria DePace and Susan Fiumara, who coordinate the program, said it offers students a nice opportunity to interact with elderly members of the community.

    Pen and Pencil Sale

    Landing K-Kids Club held a pen and pencil sale on Nov. 19 to raise money for the Glen Cove Music and Performing Arts Parents’ Association. The students sold pens, pencils, erasers, sharpeners and made-to-order custom-designed pencils during recess, raising $284.71 for the organization. K-Kids is a student group associated with Kiwanis International that, with advisers, Margaret Clark and Amy Mendrinos, takes on a variety of projects throughout the year to help the local and global community.

    Thanksgiving Celebration

    Landing students enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving meal and a visit from their loved ones at the school’s annual Thanksgiving Feast.

    The event, which gives family members an opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal and desserts with their students, was held prior to the holiday. In preparation for the celebration, students created placemats with artwork that represented what they were most thankful for to share with family members.

    Parents and students in attendance feasted on turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings, while viewing a photo montage created by teacher assistant Michele Muzante, which included photos from student activities from earlier in the school year.

    Food at the celebration was prepared by North Shore Farms and served by faculty, staff and parent volunteers.
