The Spanish Fair occurred on May 26, 2011 and was a very successful and exciting event! If you didn’t come you missed a very cultural experience with the entire TMA community.
Ms. Allison leads a Zumba session full of Latin beats.
This fair was presented by students in Spanish I, II, and III. The students participated by contributing things that appealed to their talents, such as food preparation, art work, journalism, dressing up like cultural leaders, and performances.
We interviewed fellow TMA students about their experience at the Spanish Fair. Our first interviewee was Aaron Long ‘14. His response to the Spanish Fair was “It was amazing!” Nia Boxley ‘12 thought the fair was “good. It was actually really fun.” Tiona Rollerson ‘12 said, “The Spanish Fair was very great; I enjoyed the dancing and the different acts.” Lastly, Nia Johnson ‘12 loved the fair, saying “It was awesome! I didn’t think that I would ever come to something this great.”
Some of the gastronomical delights. From left to right: mango banana smoothie, guava juice, and arroz con pollo.
Overall, the students here really enjoyed themselves. Congratulations to Collecha Newby ‘12 and Tiona Rollerson for their victory in the Spanish recipe contest. They really did an excellent job. All of the performances were great. Thanks to all students and staff for participating and we hope that next year’s fair is an even bigger success.
