Lion's Cub Pawtner Project

Like the name of the forum says, it involves Lion Cubs and Pawtners and it's a project! The idea is to help new Gryffindor students to get to know their house and housemates by pairing them up with an oldbie, aka someone who already has been in HOL and Gryffindor for a while and knows their way around (basically this means second years and above - not repeating first years). We know this place can be relatively confusing for someone new and they might need a friend to make it easier to fit in around here, older people (in HOL age) again could use this as an opportunity to get to know some of the new firsties and have fun.

There is already a HOL-wide project like this one (and some of the other houses have something of the kind going on as well), but LCPP is meant specifically for Gryffindors to get settled and find friends in their own house, your "adopter" will be able to help you with questions you might have about Gryffindor and they can introduce you to different areas of our house. You're of course welcome to sign up for both the HOL project and this one!

Before we start accepting first year sign ups for the project, we are in need for our older students who want to participate to sign up and follow the directions here.

After a few days, when we have enough students to help our first years we will be opening another topic for our first years to sign up in. We hope to have a lot of people participate. We ask that if you have any questions to first read our FAQ.

Thanks,
Cyriel Aurorus, Jenny Lupin





GCR Down

The Gryffindor Common Room will be down for maintenance on August 6th, 2009. Hopefully everything will go smoothly and it will be back online the following day. If it isn't, just wait patiently.





Welcome all new Gryffindors!

Greetings! New student sign ups have opened again for the next term, so we'd very much like to welcome all new Lions to HOL and to Gryffindor.

Since not everyone finds their way to our fantabulous Common Room right away, we thought we'd use the HOL Blog to point you to the right direction. No one can be obligated to join the CR, but believe us when we say that if you for some reason ended up not doing it, you'd miss out on a looot of fun and a huge part of what being a HOL members is all about. Thus, wait no more and head over to the Gryffindor Common Room

Before you register your account, please be sure to read the quick guide to doing it correctly, found over here, otherwise you might not get validated on the first try. We realize that HOL can be pretty confusing for someone who has only recently joined that wonderful community, so remember to turn to any of the Gryffindor Prefects (the full list of them is posted right here for help and guidance.

Also, let us remind you that Gryffindor Summer Camp registration is open for absolutely all Lions and that it's an awesome way to meet your first Gryff friends and start feeling at home in your House. All you have to do is wait for your CR account to be validated and then sign up for the camp. Check here (the link won't work before you've had your account validated) for info about how to do that.

Again, welcome to HOL and to our lovely House!

Your Gryffindor Staff

Changes to the Staff of Gryffindor

After many days of beating my head against the side of the Gryffindor tower and running the house alone, I have come to the decision that I cannot run it all by my lonesome. My staff helps enormously but I still needed a second in command. I have searched hi and lo in the Gryff house to find someone who I could trust with the secrets of Gryffindor and some people when approached ran away from me screaming. The one person who has always been there helping without question has been Missa Matz, and I didn't even realize that she already knew the most important secrets of the house anyway, some of which she taught me on my first day as a student.

I've always had my eye on Mrs. Matz but wanted to wait until she had finished her educational career here at HOL, but now I do believe that she has graduated. A task that is very hard to do.

Without further ado, and gnawing your ear off anymore, I'd like to announce that Missa Matz has accepted my offer of being the Deputy Head of House of Gryffindor. When you see her in the halls please treat her as you do all the rest of the deputies, but try not to hurt her too much. She did play 7 years if quidditch after all.
