Hart Campout Unfurls Fun for All
April 20, 2018 - If one was asked to describe the Hart Campus Campout using a type of hairstyle only, one would be correct in saying it was a mullet. Hart was business in the front and party in the back. Driving into Hart Elementary’s parking lot, campout attendees might believe that this was just a normal night, but stepping through the playground gate the scenery changed and it was obvious this was the opposite of a normal night. The campout landscape that unfurled before their eyes included a rock climbing wall, a multitude of inflatables, food vendors and tents of all shapes and sizes. Families set up tents, some with ease, some admitted to being a bit out of practice in the camping arena. Dani Miller, mother of Graham Miller, said, “I’m looking forward to a fun night with my child.” Brandi Breaux, while watching the entire scene, said, “My triplets are having a blast.”
Regarding her favorite part of the campout, Hart Principal, Lacey Moser said, “So many fun moments! I loved seeing the field full of tents throughout the evening and watching students enjoy all of the fun activities, but my favorite part of the night was walking out of the dance party and seeing all of our families snuggled in blankets and chairs for the movie under the stars. It was a beautiful moment and a perfect way to end the evening.”
110 families participated. There were a total of 300 parents and students in attendance with over 100 volunteers before, during, and after the event. They were able to reach the LISD goal of $30,000 and then some. Moser said they would like to use the campus portion of the revenue to add a Gaga Pit to the playground, additional STEM resources to the library and classrooms, bottle fillers at the water fountains and possible STEM or Spanish classes after school at a reduced cost.
