Headmistress Post--Mass Posting Warning

Hi students.

I just wanted to let you know that in the next four hours I will be making nine results posts, two voting posts, and your next two courses.  Gringotts and the Armour Gallery will be updated, as well.  So there will be a lot to scroll through.  I'll try to remember to post a summary of everything later tomorrow.

2 hours left to get your entries in!

Last Minute Reminder

Hello all, this is your headmistress speaking.  Just wanted to remind you that we are almost done with our fourth week of courses.  Your assignments for Astronomy (8 entries thus far) and Care of Magical Creatures (6 entries so far) are due by 11:59 pm US CST Tuesday, October 6th.

I have over nine results posts to do and everything that goes with it (gringotts, banners, community header, detailed scores).  In other words, your Headmistress is in over her head. :P  I'm almost done scoring everything and converting it all t gnuts, etc., so I'll try to get those posts up by the end of tomorrow.  The banners will be a bit longer, sorry.  After this school year, I most definitely will be looking for Headboys/girls and Prefects to help now that some of you will know how this school is run.

All right, good luck and happy icon making!

Mid Week Reminder and Summary Post

Hello all, this is your headmistress speaking.  Just wanted to remind you that we are halfway through our fourth week of courses.  Your assignments for Astronomy (3 entries thus far) and Care of Magical Creatures (1 entries so far) are due by 11:59 pm US CST Tuesday, October 6th.

I realize many of you went home for term break, and most likely missed the flurry of O.W.Ls that were sent here.  I have included a summary immediately below, with links to everything.  I implore you to score/grade any matches/courses you may have missed because it makes your Headmistress's headaches go down.  The more votes we have, the less likely I have to keep the grading open and I can post your results on time.  This is turn helps you to stay informed of your standing sooner, thus, helping you alter your strategy and let you know if you should buy objects at Hogsmeade and what, if you need to enter more challenges, and so on.

Thanks very much and have a great rest of the week!

Quidditch Cup Tournament Mass Voting Post

Sorry this took so long to get up, students.  I was waiting to hear from someone before I could post them.  Below are links to each Quidditch match's scoring tallies.  It should be noted, YOU MAY NOT SCORE A MATCH IF IT INVOLVES YOU HOUSE In other words, Gryffindor players can not score any Gryffindor match, and so, as to curb favoritism.

Also, it's been over a week and we only have six grades for our POTIONS and our STUDY OF ANCIENT RUNES courses.  Please take the time to vote if you haven't already--I'd like to have at least ten votes total for each course.  I realized i didn't post a reminder for voting, and there have been a flurry of entries in the past week.  I'll post up a summary with links on Saturday with the current courses' reminder so you can all catch up.

Towers, Astronomy Towers--Astronomy 501 with Prof. Sinistra

Greetings, students!  I'm happy you were able to brave the late night hours and join me as we conquer the infinite skies that stretch out before us. During our sky observation sessions you'll be taught the names of stars, constellations, and planets, as well as their location and movements, and describing the environments of planets and moons.

I hope you'll discover that while the night sky does not offer the vivid hues that daybreak provides, it's black and white canvas can paint just as many memorable images.   And thus, your homework for this week's lesson will pay homage to b/w imagery.
