Harlandale ISD celebrates Commemorative Week

In honor of San Antonio’s Tricentennial, Harlandale ISD celebrated Commemorative Week May 1 – May 6.

The goal behind the initiative was to engage students through educational opportunities that raise awareness of San Antonio’s unique history.

The week-long series of events represented a unique aspect reflective of San Antonio’s past, present and future. Several campuses highlighted education initiatives celebrating 300 years of history on Wednesday as it was proclaimed History and Education Day.

As part of the special day, Wright Elementary received a special visit from District 3 Tricentennial Commission Representative Brenda Pacheco who spoke to students about San Antonio’s rich history and culture. The campus then received a cake from H-E-B and sang “Happy Birthday” to San Antonio.

Friday was a big day for Schulze Elementary as they commemorated San Antonio’s Tricentennial with a concert by the Schulze Elementary Choir and an art exhibition by Schulze Elementary artists in recognition of “Arts for All” day.

The young singers captivated the audience with beautiful performances of the classics “America the Beautiful,” “This Land is Your Land,” “Tomorrow Needs Us” and “De Colores,” among others.  

District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran was in attendance and enjoyed the concert.

“The performance was wonderful, I am so happy I was able to come,” Viagran said. “It shows the amount of work these kids put into it, they did a great job!”

For Principal Victoria Treviño, it was an honor to have been asked to participate in the citywide celebration.

“I am so proud of our boys and girls, they put in a lot of energy,” she said. “And it gave us an opportunity to showcase all the talents that our kids have and all the great work that our fine arts teachers do here on campus.”
