The Spanish classes participated in the Hispanic fair on May 30 that represented all 22 Spanish speaking countries. The students in Spanish I, II, and III completed eight projects throughout the school year under the direction of Senorita Nova Dinsmore. They then display their projects at the year-end fair.
This year Dinsmore invited fifth-graders from SES to visit the fair along with any students from the junior and senior high. “I do the Hispanic fair for students to experience the Spanish culture,” Dinsmore said. The fair was held from 9 – 2 during the school day, and then from 4:30-6:30 p.m. as part of Arts and Academics Night so that adults could come to visit the displays.
The students had put a great amount of time and effort into their projects, so Dinsmore collected donations at the Hispanic fair to help pay for the funds to complete the students’ projects next year. She received a generous grant of $200 from the Northwestern REC for this year’s fair.
Dinsmore plans to continue the fair in the following years for students, teachers, and the community to experience Spanish culture.
