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.

    Stuck for a Buck at Landing

    It was a sticky situation for Landing School Principal Benjamin Roberts on May 18 as students and staff participated in the school’s “Stuck for a Buck” fundraiser.  

    The activity, which gave students an opportunity to buy a piece of duct tape for a dollar and tape Principal Roberts to the wall, was part of the school’s three-week Pennies for Patients campaign to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Fourth-grade teacher Maria DePace led the fundraising efforts, which included students donating money to classroom donation boxes daily, as well as weekly pen/pencil and bake sales. Each grade level also participated in Dance for a Dollar, donating money to participate in a grade-wide dance. In all, the students raised $5,380.40 for the organization!

    ‘Ben Franklin’ Visits Landing


    Landing students learned about the life of Benjamin Franklin when re-enactor Lloyd Wheeler visited the school on May 12.

    Using student volunteers, “Franklin” spoke about and acted out the main facts of his life, which included working as a printer for his brother. He also demonstrated the printing process he used and explained how different life was in Colonial times, and how most of what is available to people today was not available back then.

    As part of the presentation, Wheeler gave out buckets to students, then handed them a tennis ball and asked that they pretend the ball was fire. The tennis ball was passed from one student’s bucket to the next to demonstrate how slowly fires were extinguished in Colonial times without fire departments.

    “Franklin’s” demonstrations hammered home tenets of character education, including the importance of persistence and self-reliance.
    He also discussed his love of reading and spoke about the job descriptions of his day.

    The students thoroughly enjoyed the visit and walked away with vast knowledge on the historical figure’s life, as well as important character building lessons.
