Harlandale ISD comes together for National Night Out (1)

Hundreds of Harlandale ISD community members celebrated the 36th annual National Night Out at Harlandale Memorial Stadium on Oct. 1.

The idea behind National Night Out is to strengthen relationships between the community and police.

“Today is about sharing important safety information with our neighbors,” Harlandale ISD Police Chief Michael Ramirez said. “We are a very tight community here at Harlandale ISD, and this event allows us to not only have direct communication with our community, but also help spread awareness about drug use and crime prevention with our students, families and staff.”

The event featured a talented line-up of student performances, free food, carnival rides, games and raffle prizes. Harlandale ISD student volunteers passed out hot dogs, snacks and water during the event.

More than 20 vendors from the Harlandale ISD area signed up to share information about their services and passed out free items to attendees.

Meanwhile, Gillette Spur Choir belted out songs, MHS and HHS cheer and dance teams showed off their routines, and MHS’s Mariachi Orgullo played and sang their hearts out.  

Harlandale ISD Board President Ricardo Moreno had the opportunity to address the crowd and thanked them for being a part of the community.

“Thank you for joining us. We’re excited to continue to show all the growth and success here at Harlandale ISD,” Moreno said. “We look forward to another academic year, and we hope you continue to visit us during our family events, wellness events and carnivals coming up throughout the year.”
