Students and staff will be on a holiday break December 23-January 3, but before they headed out, they celebrated with each other.
All elementary schools took part in three nights of Christmas concerts at the Boggess Center. One by one, the choirs and bands took the stage to sing, dance and play for hundreds of people in the audience. At the end of each night, they all combined forces for an encore performance.
Harlandale High School held a luncheon for all its faculty and staff members. It was a time for them to get out of the classroom and enjoy the holiday spirit with one another.
Employees at the administration building moved from their offices into the training room only to be greeted by dancing Christmas lights, food prepared by HISD Culinary students and a quintet made up of music teachers from around the district.
