MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT - March 9, 2017
We are so proud and grateful for our district staffs’ participation in this year’s Harlandale Education Foundation fund drive. Our employees reached an all-time high by pledging and donating $62,482 for the scholarship fund. These funds that are matched by a friend of Harlandale will help all of our graduates pursue higher education.
Congratulations to the eighty-four Frank Tejeda Academy students who received their high school diplomas on March 9.
We appreciate everyone who took part in Texas Public Schools Week. We had great turnouts for the bus tour and at open house night.
The annual Founder’s Day banquet was a special event thanks to the leaders of the Harlandale Council of PTAs. McCollum High School was gracious to host the event and many of our students helped with the decorations, music, food preparation and service.
The groundbreaking ceremonies at Carroll Bell and Vestal Elementary schools marked the sites where new buildings will be constructed and ready for the 2018-2019 school year. Construction on parking lots at Terrell Wells Middle School and the Administration Building is under way.
Students and families are invited to Middle School College and Career Night that will be hosted at Terrell Wells Middle School on March 22 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
