Landing Elementary School

A National Blue Ribbon Award Winning School of Excellence


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.

    All Scream for Ice Cream

    Students at Landing enjoyed a sweet treat when a Mister Softee ice cream truck paid them a visit as part of the school’s Welcome Back Celebration.

    Sponsored by the school’s PTA, the event gave students an opportunity to enjoy their favorite ice cream cones during their recess periods. Principal Dimitri Kryoneris said he appreciated the PTA organizing the visit.

    “It’s a fantastic way to start the school year,” Kryoneris said. “There is nothing better than ice cream, and the kids have a blast.”

    Everyone has rights at Landing

    Landing students continued a long-time school tradition when they signed the Landing School Bill of Rights at an assembly held on Sept. 5.

    Initially started by Dr. Michael Israel in 1999, Landing’s Bill of Rights is guided on the principles that every Landing student has a right to learn; a right to feel and be safe; a right to be respected; and a right to speak and be heard.

    “I love this tradition,” Landing Principal Dimitri Kryoneris said. “It sets a positive, safe tone to the school year.”

    At the assembly, each student signed their name to the Bill of Rights, which will be framed and displayed in the hallway to the building’s All Purpose Room. By signing the document, the children are reminded of the importance of being kind and respectful to each other. In addition, they realize they must work together with their parents and teachers to make a difference in the Glen Cove Community.
