Landing Students Are Fully ‘Booked’ This Month


Landing School Creates ‘Free Book Initiative’ for National Reading Month

From L to R: Landing Elementary School teachers Jaime Bouretis, Christiana Nicolau, Landing principal Alexa Doeschner and reading teacher Melanie Odone in front of a table full of books for the students to choose from.

Staff members from Landing Elementary School in the Glen Cove City School District created a free book initiative to ensure all students could have their own reading material to take home with them.

Reading teacher Melanie Odone, Landing principal Alexa Doeschner, and classroom teachers Jaime Bouretis and Christiana Nicolau donated, collected and categorized over six-hundred books to provide to their students in honor of National Reading Month.

Each child at Landing received two gently used books. Students were thrilled to receive their free books and were excited to not only look for a book for themselves, but to also look for titles for their younger relatives.
