Harlandale ISD hosts ‘A Night at the Museum’

HISD District Family Night

Exhibits and characters came to life Wednesday evening as students, parents, teachers and administrators celebrated Harlandale ISD’s “A Night at the Museum” District Family Night at McCollum High School.

A Tyrannosaurus Rex and Theodore Roosevelt himself greeted families and students of all ages as they participated in fun and engaging learning activities throughout the school’s cafeteria and library.

District departments, including math, science, social studies, language arts and fine arts, were on hand to help students with every activity. Students enjoyed coloring different projects, creating colorful art pieces, making counting necklaces and painting each other’s faces.

Local museum representatives from the McNay Art Museum, Institute of Texan Cultures, Briscoe Museum, San Antonio Museum of Art and Witte Museum were also present to invite families to visit the museums and participate in fun, creative projects.

Students and parents had the opportunity to learn about the different exhibits currently available in the city and take their projects home.

HISD Parent and Adult Education Coordinator Ruth Zambrano organizes the event every year to promote family engagement through learning.

“We love hosting this event every year because it gives parents the opportunity to engage and interact with their child,” Zambrano said. “Our goal is for them to leave with the tools and materials needed so that they may continue to be engaged and support their child’s learning journey at Harlandale ISD.”

The event concluded with an entertaining performance by the McCollum High School mariachi group.
