Various clubs and organizations decorated hallways throughout Homecoming week to show school pride, following the theme of the Olympics. Each club chose an Olympic sport to base their hallway decoration on and members worked hard to creatively make and display their decorations. 

NATIONAL ART HONOR SOCIETY (NAHS):

“Our theme was mountain bikes and we took butcher paper, put it over a screen, and traced it. We then cut it out and put the bike riding people on the mountains that we painted,” Denise Lin ‘21 said. “We also made gold medals that hung from the wall. It was quite a lot of work with all the coloring and cutting, but overall I loved the outcome of it.”

CHOIR:

“We wanted something fun, lively, and that fit the theme of music, so we thought that artistic swimming would give us some creativity and allow us to put all the blue on the lights so we went for that. We used cellophane and poster paper [and students] laid down on the poster paper and [we] traced around their bodies and then cut those out,” Violet Burns ‘21 said. “They also had a bunch of blue streamers to represent water. I think that the decorations turned out beautiful and we did really well using the skills, materials, and the time that we had.”

NATIONAL FRENCH HONOR SOCIETY (NFHS):

“Our decorations had to do with representing [different aspects of] Paris and French culture. I came in after school for one of the point opportunities and [Mme. Macharia] told me I could draw a location so [I decided to] draw the Notre Dame,” Katie Qin ‘21 said. “After I spent two hours working on the poster, I felt really accomplished and it was a really cool experience.”

NASHA CLUB:

“We decided to make a world map where we found different famous gymnasts or Olympic winners from different countries and put them up there. Bollywood is really colorful and it’s all about exaggeration and because Holi is coming up we were inspired to make our map really colorful,” Maanya Pulsani ‘20 said. “We used a cotton sheet, watercolor, and a projector to make the map.”

OUTREACH CLUB:

“Our theme was fencing and we wanted [to choose] something that was fun and what not other people were doing,” Anna Castelino ‘20 said. “Some people made posters with people fencing and our logo, while my friends and I made podium steps.”
