Millhopper School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

The results from the first OWLs are in, and Slytherin won both!  Slytherin received 8 points for this.  All other teams earned a total of 4 points each.

Don’t forget to return to the Millhopper School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to exchange your program stamps for House points.  All MSWW stamps will earn you 3 points, owl stamps from other library branches and stamps from Millhopper Library will earn you 2 points.  Each passive activity that you complete will earn you 1 point each.  You can earn a total of 10 House points per month.

Turn in your September stamps for House points between October 1 and October 7, 2017

The October Schedule of Classes is up.  Don’t forget you need to register for each individual class, and registration will open up 1 week before the class.
