Harlandale ISD Family Night promotes learning and family engagement

Harlandale ISD families enjoyed an evening full of learning and fun during the “Under the Big Top” District Family Night held at Harlandale High School on Oct. 8.

The circus-themed event featured colorful decorations, lively music, and a variety of innovative and hands-on activities for all ages. The district’s Curriculum and Instruction Department staff was on hand to guide the parents and students through an array of games designed to promote family engagement through learning.  

“Our ultimate goal is to have our parents and kids interact together whether it’s playing games together, learning concepts together or reading books together,” HISD Family and Adult Coordinator Sylvia Servin said. “We are so excited to see everybody enjoying all the activities and learning together. I loved seeing all the happy faces tonight.”

Students solved math problems during exciting Jenga games, created colorful projects, read aloud to their parents and explored their imagination and digital skills as they learned about green screen technology.

Information about the 2020 Census, immigration services, United Way and other city services were also available.

The event also featured a performance from the Collier Choir and door prizes.

Harlandale ISD Parent Eugenia Celestino enjoyed participating in all the activities with her son and daughter.

“It was very exciting to learn and have fun with my kids,” Celestino said. “We especially liked all the math games, even I learned something new. Everything was very educational and fun.”

The spring District Family Night is scheduled for March 26.
