HISD celebrates reopening of two elementary schools
Posted on 08/31/2018

Harlandale ISD held two ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the opening of the new Carroll Bell and Vestal Elementary Schools on Aug. 24.

District officials and community members celebrated as they saw their vision become a reality.

"The facilities in this new building are the finest you will find anywhere in our city," HISD Superintendent Rey Madrigal said at the Vestal opening. "Our students deserve the very best education, in the finest facilities. The opening of this campus makes that provision possible. None of this would have been possible without everyone's support."

Vestal ES Principal Marianela Gonzalez and Carroll Bell Principal Taleen Bloom expressed their gratitude to the Harlandale community, architects, staff and Board of Trustees for supporting the construction and opening of their new schools.

Bond 2015 funded the replacement projects, and the groundbreaking of the buildings took place in March 2017. The old campuses were more than 50 years old.
