Olympic Spirit in the Guidance Suite
last updated: Fri, Feb 28th, 2014
The 22nd Olympic Winter Games took a spirited turn in the Mount Olive High School Guidance Suite, when Mrs. Dawn Mireski (pictured above) and Mrs. Kelly Galligan (pictured below) decided to decorate the offices with USA and world pride.
Walking through the Guidance Suite for the past several weeks, students and faculty were surrounded by flags of various countries competing in the 22nd Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. The display culminated in a cauldron, over which a homemade "torch" signified the start of the Winter Games.
On their way into the February faculty meeting, MOHS teachers and staff members stopped to take photographs carrying the faux torch, proudly displaying MOHS and USA pride. The faculty photographs were displayed throughout the Guidance Suite, lining the walls above the country's flags.
Mrs. Sheila Ross appreciated the opulent decorations and the meticulous care that Mireski and Galligan took to make everything look perfect. Ross said, "I thought the decorations made us all united. It united the staff, and so many staff members had their pictures hanging on the walls in the offices."
Other decorations included giant gold, silver, and bronze medals, proudly displayed over the bank of computers, and posters that detailed the results of each of the winter sporting events at the Olympic Games. Each day, Galligan updated the medal totals for each country and indicated which countries received gold, silver, and bronze medals in the events.
Overall, the decorations certainly got students and staff into the Olympic Winter spirit, as they conversed about the games and celebrated pride for their home country.
