Harrington Elementary PTA funds and coordinates a wide variety of programs throughout the year for the benefit of our students and families. We have exciting events planned for the 2016-17 school year!
In mid-October 2016, Le Theatre De Marionette performed "Star Warp...May the Farce Be With You" a fun twist on Star Wars performed by several handmade marionettes! These artists and performers entertained all ages with this amazing show!
Harrington PTA was awarded a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts to assist in bringing these kind of performances to our students! We are very excited and proud of this achievement and thankful to our local Texas legislators for providing this opportunity!
We have more cultural events planned throughout the year and will be bringing another outside performance like this to the Harrington students in the Spring to add to their art and culture experiences.
We're looking forward to another great year! For questions regarding any programs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
