An animated drawing caught the Headmaster's eye when he passed by the bulletin board near the doors of the Great Hall. Peering close, he understood that the bright orange hair framing the stick figure's bald pate meant the drawing represented him. What he couldn't figure out was why in the world he was throwing chickens at... was that supposed to be Professor Brighton?

 

Chuckling, he removed the drawing from the board. "Excellent likeness, really." He declared to those within earshot. "But this board is for staff only."

OOC: Apologies for the the OOC-ness of this post. I hope this is okay.

 

I just wanted to remind students that many of your grades for this year depend solely on your exams. Please visit your classrooms to find out the requirements for each subject. If you want to earn a grade and/or house points, your time is quickly running out.

 

Also, first year students, I just posted your exam.

Shabby and torn, the posting appeared completely out of place as it lounged on the message board one fine May morning. As the little Hogwarts darlings peered closer, they’d realized that this poster had arrived fresh from the ministry.

 

Though, the word “fresh” might have been a bit too polite of a description.

 

Scrawled in a messy hand, the parchment had been quite obviously stained by something and gave off a deliberately shoddy and suspicious air.

 

And not to mention, quite…misspelled.

(Once again, I apologize for being lame and posting OOC. I blame it on procrastination.)

 

Have you graded before?

Are you online right now and able to help grade for a while?

Add me on msn and lets chat!

 

I need help. I hadn't realized that McGinnis never posted grades for first term (2nd & 4th years) either and I'd like for students to get points/grades for their work.

 

prof_trimble@hotmail.com

 

I'm all good! Thanks so much to everyone who helped and/or offered to help. :D

Your OWL and NEWT exams for this term are all posted now. Please be aware that unlike previous years, the topics will be locked after one month. February 2nd, to be exact.

 

Your professors will accept late exams, of course. But procrastination is such an ugly habit, youngsters. Remember, the best way to get something done is to begin!

The Dueling Chamber is hosting a Dueling Challenge.

 

All those who participate will be awarded extra WP simply for keeping their posts between 50 to 200 words in length. That's it. You are fully encouraged to pop into the chamber and toss off a few quick duels of 60 word posts and earn double the WP that you might normally get. (Remember though that you won't earn bank money for posts shorter than 100 words).

 

There will also be extra rewards for the best-written duels for the challenge. For details, read this topic.

 

 

Note: Unlike the duels you'll be writing, the challenge itself is OOC (and Derek Trimble is not currently at Hogwarts).

Students of Hogwarts,

 

It's my pleasure to announce that the contingents from Beauxbatons Academy of Magic and the Durmstrang Institute will arrive at 3pm Monday afternoon. Please join the Staff on the lawn after your classes to greet our visitors from abroad. Do remember that you are all representatives of your school and nation and comport yourselves accordingly.

 

A feast will follow in the Great Hall tomorrow evening. All students interested in representing Hogwarts would be wise to attend.

 

Your Headmaster,

Arthur Weasley

Hospital Wing Roleplay Challenge

 

Usually around this point in everyone’s life, they are bound to get cuts and bruises here and there from roughhousing or falling down. Then there is the whole broken bones bit, which is very easy for me to heal. Too easy, almost, but those are common physical injuries that just seem so… muggle.

 

We live in a magical world where many things can happen outside of the ordinary. We would like to see more of that. Examples range from: hands sprouting from your chest, steam pouring from your mouth or your ears, dragon pox, ringing like a bell every time you move… and oh so much more.

 

I challenge you to challenge us.

 

Prizes range from shop items to house points!
