Landing School Junior Rising Star Ceremony

Landing Elementary School held its bi-annual Junior Rising Stars Assembly on May 16, 2023, to recognize 50 students for their growth and achievement. The students, who were nominated by their classroom and special area teachers, were celebrated for their hard work and dedication. Mr. Checola, a physical education teacher within the district and a Glen Cove Schools alumni, spoke about his own experience attending Landing School and the importance of demonstrating a mindset focused on growth. 

“It was truly delightful to recognize our diligent students during the Junior Rising Stars Assembly today and even more special to have our families join us in this experience,” remarked Principal Jacklyn Burnett. 

“Great job on your hard work! We are immensely proud and encourage you to keep striving towards achieving your dreams,” said Superintendent Dr. Maria Rianna. 

Thank you to Dr. Rianna, Mr. Karakas, Mrs. Doeschner, and Mrs. Galante for attending this event, as well as the Landing PTA for sponsoring the event and Mrs. Angalet for her coordination. Congratulations to all the students who were recognized.
