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 Showcase Their Study of Brazil

    Landing Elementary School third graders recently participated in the Communities Around the World Project. The students learned about Brazilian culture and the political, social and economic components that define Brazil, and were tasked with creating posters and carnival masks to showcase their learning.

    The children read two articles from the National Geographic Ladders Social Studies series “Welcome to Brazil.” They worked collaboratively in their reading groups to stop and jot notes from “Into the Rain Forest” by David Holford and “Let’s Go to Carnival” by Hugh Westrup. Using the information they learned, they then constructed posters that included important facts, animals, celebrations, traditions and landmarks significant to Brazilian culture. They also designed carnival masks that were inspired by their learning. Finally, the children shared their projects with each other and watched a video about carnival celebrations around the world.  Students were able to compare and contrast the different celebrations and make a common connection to communities around the world. They learned that we may all come from different backgrounds and cultures, but we are all part of the same human race.

    Thank you to all our third grade teachers, Mrs. Tenke and Ms. Oliveira, ICT teachers Ms. Conte and Mrs. Cornelis, and teaching assistants Ms. Gomez and Mrs. Glaviano, who prepared and planned this project, and the third grade students who participated in this activity.

    Students in Ms. Simeone’s fifth grade class at Landing Elementary School just finished reading “Esperanza Rising” by Pam Munoz. The students used the program Storyboard on their Chromebooks to develop events utilizing descriptive details and event sequences. Students incorporated narrative techniques, such as dialogue, description and pacing, to develop experiences and events or show the responses of characters to situations. On May 3, the class presented their projects to Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Technology Dr. Michael Israel.

    Fourth and fifth graders in Mrs. Mendrino’s and Ms. Harechmak’s classes at Landing School met to share their informational writing, as part of the Readers and Writers Workshop program. 

    Fourth graders shared their finished projects on the American Revolution and then listened to the fifth graders present their e-books on westward expansion, which they created using Book Creator. All of the students were genuinely interested and focused on the presenter and showed tremendous respect for each other. In attendance during the writing share were Ms. Alexa Doeschner, interim principal of Landing, and Ms. Thomas, security personnel at Landing. Collaboration such as this is rewarding for all of the students because they can take pride in their work, while reinforcing the information they have learned.
