Fifth-grade student-musicians were excited to have a special guest attend their winter concert on Dec. 18. 

Music teacher Ed Smith and his wife, Elizabeth, were front and center for the event, which was a memorable occasion for them both, as it was Mr. Smith’s first visit to the school since having a stroke last year. Principal Ben Roberts, teachers and staff were excited to see their colleague and presented him with handmade signs to show their love and support. It was a wonderful reunion for the Landing School community.

Thanksgiving Feast at Landing

Thanksgiving Feast at Landing photo

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 They were also given the opportunity to bring in a token that reflected an artifact or historical content that they mentioned in their journal entries.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!
