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.

    Landing students in Melissa Harechmak’s class were selected to write articles for the Kidsday portion of Newsday and recently interviewed New York Knicks player Allonzo Trier as one of their assignments.

    Students have been working with Newsday editor Pat Mullooly as part of the Kidsday experience. Recently, he visited the students to get to know them and discussed ideas for their articles. The articles are based on student experiences, interests, school highlights and surveying other students. Mr. Mullooly came with a few different toys, books and a STEM robot called Dash, which the students used to test out and write reviews. Mr. Mullooly will visit two more times before the articles are published the week of Feb. 23, 2019. 

    One of the other components for the children is to interview someone famous. On Oct. 30, Ms. Harechmak brought four students to Tarrytown, New York, to the New York Knicks practice facility. The students interviewed Mr. Trier, a 22-year Knicks player, using questions they had prepared. Mr. Mullooly also attended this special visit to help the students write an article to be published in the paper.

    In recognition of National Encouragement Day, Landing students in Mrs. Laura-Ann Hazen and Ms. Michelle Orlando's class decided to paint rocks with pictures and/or words of positivity and encouragement. The students then delivered one to each classroom teacher, the main office, the all-purpose room, the nurse’s office and the security desk.

    Their hope was to brighten others’ day. The class is looking forward to having students paying it forward and putting the rock somewhere else in the building from time to time. Hopefully, keeping this kindness rock rotating will continue to spread cheer in the building.  


    David Wright Day at Landing

    Landing School celebrated the career and life of New York Mets player David Wright on Sept. 28. Students and staff were invited to wear New York Mets shirts, other MLB team jerseys or any sports shirt to salute David Wright’s character both on and off the field.

    Wright's career was filled with countless examples of making someone’s day, and he has a reputation as one of the most charitable stars in the majors. In 2005, he began his own charitable organization, the David Wright Foundation. Its mission is to increase awareness about multiple sclerosis and to raise money for multiple sclerosis organizations and projects. Landing School salutes David Wright on his distinguished career and his incredible character both on and off the field. Congratulations!

    Landing School students recently enjoyed grilled cheese, fresh salad, turkey sandwiches and other delicious meals for lunch — at no cost to their families — thanks to the United States Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service’s Community Eligibility Provision.

    In fact, this year all district students in grades K-5 are receiving free lunch and breakfast thanks to the Community Eligibility Provision, a nonpricing meal service option for schools and school districts. This provision allows districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students without collecting household applications. 

    According to Food Services Manager Kim Coopersmith, the grant is for a duration of four years. The goal is to be able to offer the program to all district students, and so far, the students love it.

    “The food is good and it’s easier because we don’t have to wait a long time to pay, we just have to put our code in,” fifth-grader ZyAaire Mejia said.  

     Enhancing the district’s lunch program was a conversation that began with the nutrition committee and continued with the nutrition and wellness committee. Committee members visited other districts to learn about their programs, ultimately learning about the Community Eligibility Provision and sharing the information to the benefit of the students.
