MHS Spanish students to host culture fair
For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – On March 6, the upper level Spanish students at Marshfield High School will host a culture fair from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The high school commons area will be transformed as the students display posters and demonstrations about various research topics centered on art in Spanish-speaking countries.
Organizer Dacia Giordana and Leslie Reigel will work with the Spanish IV, IVH, and AP students to host the fair. Earlier this year, Dacia was awarded the Oscar Neale Fellowship through UW-Stevens Point. Through this fellowship, Dacia was able to connect her students with native Spanish speakers all around the world through a company called Talk Abroad. With these conversations, her students learned about different forms of art in various Spanish-speaking countries.
The students are now conducting their own research on artistic topics in the Spanish-speaking world. The culture fair is a free event where friends, families, and the public can learn about Spanish art in a fun, interactive way. This is a family event, where kids and adults alike will enjoy learning about music, artists, fashion, sports, and food from around the world.
