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 Honored at Field Day

    Landing School students who achieved success in physical education this year were celebrated during the school’s annual Field Day event.

    Congratulations to Joseph Johnson and Sofia Kern for receiving the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance award for excellence in physical education. Outstanding physical education students Jacob Bruce, Caroline Fahey, Jovanne Howe, Allyna James, Joseph Johnson, Michael Johnson, Sofia Kern, Antony Maldonado, Samantha Morales, Victor Scarmato, Samantha Seery and Tigist Willson were also recognized. Lidani Pesantez was the recipient of the Courage Trophy.

    Students who broke the P.A.C.E.R. records held at Landing School were also recognized, including third-grader Madison Kaffl (50 laps), Sujeily Gonzalez (53 laps), and third-grader Jonathan Patino (61 laps). Fourth-grader Valerie Acosta and fifth-grader Sofia Kern were also honored for completing 59 laps each.

    Other recognition was given to students in the 80s club. These students achieved 80 sit-ups on both their pre- and post-tests for curl-ups as part of their baseline and summative fitness tests.

    Landing Students Perfect Ballet


    Landing School fifth-graders kicked up their heels during a recent ballet recital in their gymnasium.

    The performance, which culminated the district’s eight-week pilot program with the Eglevsky Ballet, brought two instructors and a classically trained pianist to both Landing and Connolly schools to work with fifth-graders.

    Although Landing’s ballet was rescheduled multiple times due to winter weather, students didn’t miss a beat at the performance, showing off their spectacular dance moves and dance language learned through their participation in the program.

    Students were all smiles as they performed for the Landing School community and Superintendent of Schools Maria Rianna.
