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 school....it is our home.
Catching Dreams with Your Buddies
Fourth-graders in Mrs. DePace and Mrs. Hernandez's classes at Landing School visited their first-grade buddies down the road at Deasy School. Landing students joined students in Mrs. Gordon, Mrs. Russo and Mrs. DePietro's classes in reading the Native American story: Brother Eagle, Sister Sky. Landing students then shared facts they learned in class about Native Americans with their buddies. Each student also created his/her own dream catcher, a handmade object based on the Native American willow hoop, which is a loosely woven net often decorated with sacred items such as feathers and beads. They serve as a symbol of unity by many Native Americans.
