Millhopper School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

How it all begins...

Hogwarts Express

 

The Sorting Ceremony will take place in the Great Hall at Hogwarts on September 13, 2017.  Registered students will depart the Millhopper Branch Library with a stop in Diagon Alley before arriving at Hogwarts for the official sorting.

 

Visit Ollivander's Wand Shop to get your wand and check out some of the other school supplies you can pick up at the shops around Diagon Alley.

Hogwarts Castle
 

After arriving at Hogwarts for the Sorting Ceremony, each witch and wizard will have the Sorting Hat placed upon his or her head.  The Sorting Hat will magically determine in which of the four houses you belong.

The Classes here at Millhopper

OWLs: Harry Potter Book Trivia each month will focus on a different book, but be warned the questions come from the books NOT the movies

Movie Exercise Challenge: Watch one movie each month and see if you have what it takes to keep up with our exercise challenge

Muggle Studies

Muggle Studies points are earned by attending non-Millhopper School of Witchcraft and Wizardry programs at Millhopper or by attending programs at other Alachua County Library locations.  Simply get your Student ID stamped at the other locations and bring it back to Millhopper to get your House points. 

Muggle Studies classes are worth 2 points.

THE HOUSE CUP

Who Will Win the Inaugural Year?

At the end of April, we will have a Graduation Ceremony/Party.  Participants will receive a diploma for completing the year.  The House Cup will be awarded to the House who has earned the most points.

The trophy, along with the House Flag, will be displayed at the Millhopper Library until the next year of Millhopper School of Witchcraft and Wizardry begins.
