Millhopper School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

House PointsIt is December and one of the most magical times here at Millhopper School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  This month we have a more condensed schedule because of the Holiday's "Snow" Dancing at the Yule Ballbut it will still be fun filled.

First things first, House Points are really adding up.  Each House is still in the running for the House Cup.  Gryffindor is still in the lead, but program attendance, along with the House Point raffle at every MSWW program means the House Points are really adding up for everyone.

Movie Scene Charades for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban are December 1 at 2:30 PM.  It's time to act out some of our favorite scenes from the movie.

Our second visit to Diagon Alley is December 3rd at 4:00 PM.  You will have an opportunity to get a new wand.  We are also screen printing MSWW tote bags!

Then, it is time to get ready for the Yule Ball.  Don't sit around bored like Harry and Ron, come to our Yule Ball Dancing Lessons on December 5 and December 12 and learn some fun dance skills.  Then, you can dance the afternoon away like Hermione or Neville.Gillyweed

Dumbledore's Army is December 10th at 4:30.  We'll be making vials of Gillyweed.  In case you find yourself in need of the ability to swin underwater for an hour, you will be prepared.

Yule BallThe Millhopper Greenhouse Classroom is December 13th at 4:30.  We are making lavender sachet's in time for the holidays.  Make one to keep for yourself or gift to a friend or family member.  We'll also be doing something tasty with all the mint that we've been growing.  Be sure to get a look at how much our radishes and lettuce has grown in the past month as well.

This month's OWLs on December 15 at 3:00 are all about Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.  How well do you remember the book.  Yes, that's right, this trivia is based on the book - not the movie.  Need a copy of the book to refresh your memory?  Stop by the library to pick up a copy at the Reference Desk.

Celebrate the successful completion of the OWLs by watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire movie showing on our big screen.

Then, the magic really comes to life on December 21 from 3:00 - 5:00 with the Third Annual Yule Ball - in celebration of the holidays and the Triwizard Tournament.
