We're in our penultimate month of the school year!

HOL News

Gone Questing is in its second month. In May, people get to visit a mysterious ruined castle to retrieve a very important cure. Hopefully you survive!

Slytherin's Harry Potter Read-Along (click to see it) is going strong. There are two tasks and daily trivia each week! The Emerald Cup will be starting at the end of May and will be open to all Houses. Everyone is welcome to stop by the GOBstones club to discuss their favorite tabletop games or the Puzzle Exchange to learn and share puzzles. Submit to Serpentimes (The Slytherin Newspaper)! This issue's theme is Oasis and the deadline is June 15. click for more information

Ravenclaw is ending Prank Wars (click to see!) and the results should be posted shortly. Professor Gustavo Flores is running the May activity (it's Rave only) with a mystery theme! Who knows what it will be. :o As always, Ravenclaw has their debate questions and folks from all Houses are welcome to come give their opinions. (Debate Club).

Quidditch - There are House games scheduled. One is Ravenclaw vs Slytherin on May 12th and another is Hufflepuff vs Gryffindor on May 19th. click here for Quidditch schedule

As for HOLLERS, Polaris has a way with words which I'm again repeating! :D -
HOLLERS members earn Hoots for participating in club activities. For each activity, challenge, or something of the kind, Hoots are offered. We keep track of Hoots in a spreadsheet and at the end of each term, the top three earners win the Hoots Award. Periodically, the HOLLERS Award is also given to members who are particularly active participants. Both awards would be found in the Treasures section of "My Profile".

Every month we offer three creative projects, three puzzle challenges and a newsletter. We also schedule longer activities like First o' September at different times throughout the year. There are discussion threads and a scrapbook section where you can meet new people and share your thoughts, works, and experiences.

If you have any questions about anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask.
