Harlandale ISD comes together for National Night Out

Thousands of Harlandale ISD community members celebrated the 33rd annual National Night Out at Harlandale Memorial Stadium on Oct. 4.

The event featured a talented line-up of student performances, free food, games and raffle prizes.

District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran and Kids School Health Advisory Council teamed up with the district to help host the event. The idea behind National Night Out is to strengthen relationships in the community.  

More than 40 vendors from the Harlandale ISD area signed up to share information about their services and to pass out free items to attendees.  

“It’s great to see the community come together and promote the great initiatives they have to offer,” P.E.P. Grant Project Facilitator Nicole Garza said.

Harlandale ISD’s Kids School Health Advisory Council students passed out information about health and wellness, gave out water, healthy snacks and fitness demonstrations.

Meanwhile, elementary choirs belted out songs, cheer teams showed off their routines and the middle school mariachis played and sang their hearts out.  

Columbia Heights Art Teacher Noe Garza showcased some of his students’ art in panels set up at the event. It was his first time attending National Night Out and he was amazed by the support the students received.

“We need to keep supporting our children in all that they do,” Garza said. “I’m very proud to be a teacher in this community because I feel the support, not just from the community, the parents, but also from the staff and from the teachers, we’re a small district, but it’s a very tight, supportive district and it feels like family here.”
