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.

    Dr. King Remembered at Landing


    Landing Elementary students honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during a recent school assembly.

    “We Hold the Pieces to World Peace” was the theme of this year’s event, which began with a presentation by fifth-grade teacher David Smith, who encouraged students to make a difference. The children then proceeded outside to the Peace Tree planted during last year’s assembly and hung paper globes that reflected their ideas on how to achieve world peace, while Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech played in the background.

    Prior to the celebration, students created puzzle pieces with their ideas for peace, which were placed next to the indoor Peace Tree created by art teacher Jean Bennardo. Principal Dimitri Kryoneris told students each leaf on the indoor tree represented a Landing student and symbolized beauty, strength, wisdom and promise.
