Central Middle School Spanish Fair



All of the students here at Central that are taking a Spanish class are presenting at the fair about a Spanish speaking country that they have researched. They will also have some great activities for kids (and adults) to do at their booth that either come from that country or pertain to that country. The event is free but there are some booths that Spanish club is sponsoring that do cost money. The money raised by Spanish club will go towards a scholarship fund to help students travel to Puerto Rico through a travel abroad program we plan to do.
