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.

    PARP Wraps Up at Landing

    Landing students celebrated the end of a very successful Pick a Reading Partner campaign with a special schoolwide assembly.  

    The children were tasked with reading more than 40,000 minutes during the school’s two-week PARP celebration. Principal Benjamin Roberts was very excited to announce that students met and exceeded the school’s reading goal, reading a total of 42,000 minutes over the course of the two weeks. For exceeding their goal, the students were rewarded with a special principal’s challenge.
    Students were selected from each classroom to participate in the special challenge, with several having an opportunity to spin the  “Wheel of Fate,” which determined the type of challenge Mr. Roberts had to accept. The wheel gave the children several fun and exciting options to make their principal pay the price. They were overjoyed when the wheel landed on directives to throw a pie at the principal, smash an egg on his head, or have him lead a schoolwide line dance.

    Great job to all of the Landing students and families in exceeding the reading minutes goal!
