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.

Welcome!

    Thanksgiving Feast at Landing

    Turkey, stuffing, corn, mashed potatoes and other delicious Thanksgiving food favorites were gobbled down by Landing School students and their families when the PTA hosted its annual Thanksgiving Feast on Nov. 16.

    The wonderful event brings the school community together so students can enjoy a special meal with their friends and family members before the Thanksgiving holiday. Those who attended were asked to pay a small fee or to donate a nonperishable food item for a local family in need. In preparation for the feast, students created colorful placemats with Thanksgiving images to decorate the school’s lunch tables.  

    After the delicious meal, students returned to their classrooms for dessert, which was donated by their families in honor of the occasion.

    Fourth-grade students in Mrs. Amy Mendrinos’ class at Landing Elementary School dedicated the month of November to celebrating the contributions and achievements of Native American civilizations. 
     
    Students were asked to write five journal entries that included specific details about the life, surroundings and daily activities that the particular culture experienced. They were also given the opportunity to bring in a token that reflected an artifact or historical content that they mentioned in their journal entries. As a culminating activity, the class presented and shared their discoveries with their peers.  

    Thank you to all the fourth-grade students who participated in this activity, parents who supported their children in discovering Native American history and Mrs. Mendrinos, who made history come alive!
