Daily Prophet, Issue 1

Welcome to all the returning students!!

It is so good to see the students settling in the halls after our brief break. I hope that you all enjoyed your break and are ready for more learning. This term promises to be the best yet.

You will notice that several students have been given a Inter-House Unity Scholarship and have decided to switch houses. I am very proud of those that have decided to step out of their comfort zone a little to experience new things from the eyes of a different House. I'm sure this will liven up all the Common Rooms this year, no? Please be sure to make the new students feel welcome when they begin arriving in a couple of days.

I also want to welcome and thank all of the new and returning prefects and head girls. I couldn't run HSKS so efficiently without you. Special thanks to Cecilia Kettleburn, who has used her talents and resources to provide hosting for the new site as well as conjuring the registration form for you all to use. Well done!

I am extremely grateful for all the angels that came forth last term. We needed a few more than we were expecting, so I am very grateful. I am more than grateful for my Deputy Headmistress. She gives her heart to her house and does her best to make sure that everyone in Hogwarts is taken care of. You are all awesome!

Dueling Club

Returning Students Sign Up
April 30th

Packages must be sent by

Only 25 members allowed in each house

Links for House sorting and choosing your potter name are in the sidebar to your left. Please make sure that you have both chosen before the sign up date. Please be prepared with a second house choice.

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart.

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil.

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends.
