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.

    As part of her Girl Scout Bronze Award, Landing School fifth grader Stephania Martinez donated the book “Hello, Universe” by Erin Entrada Kelly to her fifth grade peers.  

    Stephania has been a Girl Scout in Troop 1420 for the past five years. She loves to read and decided to share that love with others as part of her Bronze Award. During a recent lunch period, she explained her community service to fellow students.  

    “I have been reading and teaching kids in day care centers, after-school clubs and schools because I love reading,” Stephania said. 

    In addition to reading to younger students, Stephania has been holding a book drive to collect books for children in need and fundraised to purchase books for her fellow students.

    “Please take good care of the book you’re receiving, and after you’re done, pass it along, share it with a friend or donate,” she said.

    City of Glen Cove Councilwoman Marsha Silverman attended the event on behalf of Mayor Tim Tenke and commended Stephania for her good works. 

    “We love to hear stories like this of great work being done around the community, promoting the love of reading and love of books and just doing all around good for each other,” Councilwoman Silverman said.   

    Landing Students Participate in Hockey Program

    Landing Elementary School participated in a floor ball hockey program offered by the New York Islanders outreach program.

    The New York Islanders provided pinnies, elementary student-sized hockey sticks and floor balls for this unit. Students learned various skills related to hockey in their physical education classes and practiced them throughout the unit. Students enjoyed wearing the Islanders’ jersey-like pinnies, while they practiced their skills improving gross motor coordination and eye-hand coordination.

    Physical education teacher Karen Serani extended her gratitude to the New York Islanders and the outreach program for connecting the Glen Cove community to their organization. It’s a wonderful program where students can enjoy hockey while being junior representatives for the New York Islanders in their own elementary school. Various Landing photos are featured in the official New York Islanders floor ball curriculum and shared with all schools in the program, which is a wonderful representation of the Glen Cove community.

    Fifth graders at Landing and Connolly schools participated in a spelling bee on March 28 at Connolly School. Two representatives from each fifth grade class participated in the bee, going head-to-head in the competition. The winner of the spelling bee was Connolly student Saoirse Feidor and the runner-up was Sophia German. Saoirse won by spelling the word “marmalade” correctly.

    After the bee, all students enjoyed a celebration to recognize their hard work and dedication. The students from Landing enjoyed their visit to Connolly and stayed for lunch and recess. The event was a great way for the students to meet each other. The competition was also livestreamed for all the fifth graders to watch in their classroom. A special thanks to spelling bee coordinators Cheryl Carmody and Dora Ricciardi (Connolly) and Melissa Harechmak and Melanie Odone (Landing).

    Reading Club Fun at Landing


    This year, third-graders in Mrs. Christine Barsic’s and Mrs. Nicole Mazza’s classes at Landing School have joined together for reading book clubs. The activity, which takes place twice a week, allows children to truly enjoy reading with partners. They also discuss the traits of characters, main ideas and themes found in their chosen books. Additionally, when their reading is finished, they choose a culminating project based on the book they have read.  

    Students Layla Palazzo’s and Gianella Salinas’ reading came to life after they chose to write a letter to author Stephen Krensky about the book, “History of Fun Stuff: The Deep Dish on Pizza!” To their surprise, Mr. Krensky wrote a letter back to them. The girls were so excited to hear from the author, it truly made their reading come to life. His letter also served as inspiration for other groups to write letters to the authors of their chosen books.
