Harlandale HS students enjoy a night of English, science and social studies

Hundreds of Harlandale High School students gathered for the school’s first ever “A Night in Harlandale” event held at the school’s science courtyard on May 29.

Harlandale HS Social Studies Assistant Department Chair Naomi Luna organized the event to provide students and their families a fun night of English, science and social studies activities.

“Throughout the year, we are busy teaching in some of these classes preparing our students for their STAAR test that the subjects can seem dull to them,” Luna said. “By having this event, they were able to go to different booths and see their own work to share with their families and play games that used their knowledge from class to help them win prizes.”

The event featured 40 booths filled with a variety of activities, information and prizes. While some students participated in sword fighting with fake swords at the Shakespearean Combat booth, others got to show off their work in the Mexican American Studies and Student History Museum booths. Another favorite was the “Adopt-A-Book,” where students walked around with free books. The Science Department also got attendees excited with their Astronomy Museum.

During the evening, families and students also learned about the different services available at the San Antonio Food Bank and the San Antonio Public Library and were encouraged to visit the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio during the upcoming summer break.

Luna was happy to see the great turnout and hopes “A Night in Harlandale” becomes an annual campus event.

“I hope that our students and their families see how proud we are to teach them every year. I feel like the spirit of community at  Harlandale High School has gotten stronger, ending this school year perfectly for an amazing start to the 2019-2020 school year,” Luna added. “I just want to thank everyone who volunteered to run a booth, our student volunteers and everyone who came out to the event to make it such a great success.”
