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.

    During the visit, high school student-athletes Michelle Melfi, Sean Morrisey and Lindsey Payton offered tips on how to hold a lacrosse stick and how to cradle the ball. They also spoke to students about peer pressure, emphasized the importance of taking part in extracurricular activities, and reminded them to always look out for their own best interests.

    Congratulations to Edith Vanegas of Denise Pawlowski's class, who achieved a 62 on the P.A.C.E.R. test, and her classmate Danielle Ginez, who a moment later broke Edith's record with a score of 63. Valerie Acosta of Stefanie Liptzin's class ultimately shattered Danielle's record with a score a 69.
