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.

    Spelling Bee at Landing

    Twelve Landing School fifth-graders had the opportunity to demonstrate their spelling skills as they participated in the annual Scripps Spelling Bee on Jan. 7.  

    Ciaran Greene, Ryan Houghton, Allayna Hurston-James, Exau Maldonado, Virginia Papasidero, Mathew Salinas, Samantha Seery, Doris Serrano, Jaden Thom, Joseph Thom, Rafael Cruz Villalobos and Miranda Weiser competed against each other in the bee.  All of the students had previously won their classroom contests.

    Landing teachers Margaret Clark and Denise Pawlowski moderated the contest, while Susan Fiumara and Karen Serani served as floor judges. Clark did a fantastic job of putting the spellers at ease throughout the competition with her kind and supportive words and her creative and witty sentences that accompanied each spelling word. Pawlowski prepared the extensive word lists for the contestants and helped acquaint them with the rules and regulations of the competition.  

     “We had some really talented spellers who participated this year,” said Pawlowski. “It would have been impossible to predict a winner.” Clark added, “I was so impressed by the students’ dedication and commitment to this spelling bee. It took a total of 175 words, a new school record, before we could declare an official winner.”  
    Congratulations to Miranda Weiser, this year’s first-place spelling bee winner, and runner-up Joseph Thom.  

    Landing’s Wiesner Heads to NBA All-Star Game

    Landing School student Parker Wiesner was awarded first place in the NBA FIT Dribble, Dish & Swish contest regional finals on Jan. 24 at Queens College.

    Wiesner and six other Landing students were invited to participate in the regional finals, along with other students from the tri-state area, after their school took part in the contest during gym class under the direction of physical education teacher Karen Serani in January.

    In preparation for the event, Serani organized many opportunities for the participating students to practice their basketball obstacle course skills in front of larger groups of people, which included the children competing against Principal Dimitri Kryoneris in front of the entire student body. The students also had an opportunity to practice at Finley Middle School thanks to the coordination efforts of Glen Cove Athletic Director Denise Kiernan, Finley Middle School Principal Nelson Iocolano and Finley physical education teachers Angela Zupa and Steve Tripp. 

    Principal Kryoneris and the entire Landing School community commend Jordan Howe, Nia Phillips and Eli Reinheimer (7-8-year-old category); Morgan Hernandez and Wiesner (9-10-year-old category); and Samantha Silva and Jose Santos (11-12-year-old category) on their participation in the regional finals. They also expressed their congratulations to Wiesner, who was named first-place champion in the 9-10 year old boys’ division and Hernandez, who recorded her fastest time of 26.59, placing third in the girls’ competition.

    The NBA has awarded Wiesner a three-day all-expense paid trip to New York City to the NBA FIT Dribble, Dish & Swish finals, held during the NBA All-Star weekend from Feb. 13-15. Serani plans to coordinate a pizza party for all seven winners to congratulate them on their wonderful achievements.
