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.

    A Reunion at Landing

    Landing Elementary School teacher Helen Greene met with students from her 1964 fourth-grade class during a reunion that included heartfelt reminiscing and a school tour.
    The meeting was organized by Landing alumni David Summergrad, Pam Donaldson Panzenbeck and Debbie Sturm Rausch, with assistance from Dr. Michael Israel, assistant superintendent for curriculum, instruction and technology. The visit began with Dr. Israel giving 14 of Greene’s former students a tour of the building, which included a stop in their fourth-grade classroom. Rausch described the experience as “incredible.”
    “We were instantly transported back in time to the childhood in Glen Cove that we knew and loved,” Rausch said. “We immediately knew which one was our classroom and were excited to see the desks are still set up in clusters of four.”
    Summergrad described the reunion as special and unique and took time to make a historical connection.

    “Our original class photo was taken at the height of the Cold War,” he said. “It’s interesting that we gathered 53 years later as the United States and Cuba have just re-established diplomatic relations.”     

    After their visit to Landing, Greene and her students enjoyed lunch at the View Grill in Glen Cove. Those in attendance had a wonderful time reconnecting with their childhood classmates and teacher.

    Landing Students Enjoy a Recess Treat


    Landing students enjoyed a delicious snack at the school’s Welcome Back celebration on Sept. 18.

    Sponsored by the Landing PTA, the event brought a Mister Softee ice cream truck to the school during the students’ recess periods, allowing the children to select their favorite ice cream or Italian ice as a way to welcome them back to school.

    PTA Co-president Sandra Potter said the ice cream treat was provided to remind students that they are an important part of the Landing School community.
