Daylong fiesta on tap today at Clarksville school

April 20, 2001

Tango music will be accompanied by the aroma of salsa and coffee in the Media Center of Clarksville Middle School today. Seventh-graders will culminate their study of Latin America cultures with a daylong fiesta.

Children in the Gifted and Talented Program's social studies class of Emily Savopoulos have prepared booths that celebrate subjects from Aztec floating gardens to dance to Carnival, which is held annually in Rio de Janeiro. More serious topics include the Colombian drug cartel and children of poverty.

All 227 of the school's seventh-graders will attend at intervals from 10 a.m. to 2:50 p.m., with a lunch break from 12:15 p.m. to 12:50 p.m.
