Harlingen CISD is backing the future with Senator Eddie Lucio, Jr., at a back-to-school kick off celebration at Zavala Elementary on the first day of school. The school district and Harlingen PTA members will join Senator Lucio and community and business leaders to show their support for the children going back to school this year, and to answer any questions parents or community members may have about how they can get involved in elevating education in Texas communities.

This is one of many “back the future” events taking place Texas-wide in celebration of the start of the 2014-2015 academic year. These events align with Texas PTA’s new “Back The Future” campaign, an invitation and rallying cry for Texans to band together in support of Texas students and communities.

PTA representatives, including bilingual volunteers, and Senator Lucio are available for interviews in the morning.

WHEN: Monday, August 25, 2014
7:30 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.
WHERE: Zavala Elementary
1111 N. B Street
Harlingen, TX 78550
MORE: Regardless of life stage, community members of all walks of life are encouraged to “back the future” by joining and supporting PTA in any number of ways. Members of PTA are leaders and advocates for the children of Texas, benefiting from valuable programs, resources and a voice at the Texas Capitol.
