If you can see this thread, it means that you are officially accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Congratulations!

I am Professor Blue, deputy headmistress of this esteemed institution. Together with my fellow deputy headmistress, Professor Cary, we will be guiding you throughout your first year as a Hogwarts student, which begins December 1.

This will be the curriculum for the month:

Week 1 (Dec. 1-7) Chapters 1-6
Week 2 (Dec. 8-14) Chapters 7-11
Week 3 (Dec. 15-21) Chapters 12-17

If you are ready to be the best witch or wizard you can be, you only have to say the following spell for your registration (as it happens, these are the first few lines of the school song!) (view spoiler)

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy warty Hogwarts
Teach us something please
Whether we be old and bald
Or young with scabby knees!


Please accomplish this as soon as possible, preferably by December 3, 11:59PM. If you see this late, you can still join, but you get to experience everything later than everyone else.
This is crucial for the later activities to be activated, some of which will be sent to you by owl, so be sure to check your mail box as well. In the meantime, I shall say:
Nitwit! Oddment! Blubber! Tweak!

Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments I really should be asleep now (because I've been going to bed at 5am the past two nights mornings, as I mentioned earlier), but I just want to say this: Eee. Can't believe this is really happening. Hihi.

:D


Ranee | 1902 comments Owl...trolling...hoot! Hoot! (Would it matter if I say I'm a hooter?)


Meliza (mecawish) | 720 comments I love this thread. I actually sang the school song. Hahaha. Thanks for accepting me to Hogwarts. Excited!

Alexa (codenameblue) | 935 comments Students, you actually have to sing the school song so you can complete your enrollment and unlock the next activities! (You will know once you have unlocked them. Hihi.)

On another note, I am SO excited to have you all here <3

Bonus:
Because you're all going back to Hogwarts now, I recommend you watch/listen to this ^___^

Okay, now I sang it again...


Alexa (codenameblue) | 935 comments Yay students!!! <3

Tina: This reminds me of that time when I misread instructions and came for a Herbology (view spoiler) exam a day early, haha!
Aaron: *snorts* That doesn't even rhyme.
Bennard: Your owl was probably intercepted :o But it's never too late!
Tin: That's quite alright! What matters is you're now enrolled, yay <3
Meliza: What tune did you sing this to? :))


Meliza (mecawish) | 720 comments Blue: I made up the tune. I don't know, maybe I patterned the first line with a nursery rhyme but I can't name it. The remaining three lines, it's like I'm just chanting. Haha.

Thank you, thank you, oh to be enrolled!
I’d do anything to leave my cupboard cold
My work I’ll do, for you I aim to please,
The wretched Dursleys, I promise not to tease.


To the Slytherin up there: mine rhymes, haha *chanelling Hermione* :D

Cary (forestercary) | 1370 comments Hello students! I hope you're having fun at Hogwarts.

Speaking of homework, I'm giving you another one. In addition to the reading assignment we've given you for the first week, here are the discussion questions for part 1:

1. The first two chapters of book tell us something about Harry Potter's strange childhood experiences. Can you tell us something about your weirdest childhood experience?

2. Tell us something about your ultimate dream or wish when you were a child?

Deputy Headmistress Memo #1

Re: Classes


New students! Welcome!

If you haven't noticed it yet, I added another link at the top. This is where you shall be having your classes. Your subjects will be different each time, and they are usually posted Tuesdays and Fridays, except for the last lesson, which will be posted on Thursday instead to give you time to cram before your Finals on Dec. 21, SATURDAY (block off that date!).

For more information, just visit this thread!

On another note, you only have 1 day, 8 hours, and about 20 minutes left to register (if you haven't yet)! Class list over at the classes thread will be continually updated until midnight of December 4. All students who were able to enroll will then be able to go on to Sorting, and earn points for their Houses with each homework/task/activity/guide question answered. If you haven't enrolled, you may still partake of all the activities, but would you really want to miss the House Cup competition? I didn't think so.

Oh, and if you checked out the chapters for the reading assignments each week, you'll notice that we should have Sorting by next week. I have been asked by several people how this will go, but all I have to say is that we shall be having our own system of Sorting, for uniformity. I shall be sending owls by the end of the enrollment period to those who have already registered for specific instructions. General Sorting instructions will be posted here.

It's been really lovely seeing all your comments and attempts at spell-casting. You all have so much potential <3 *I shed a tear jk* Anyway, gotta Apparate. Don't be late for class!

PS I know everything's so confusing and whatnot especially with all the funky dates, so I'm sharing a calendar for visual people like moi.

Dear headmistresses, please be kind to me. I am not good at these magic spells, and I hope I won't be a drop-out for all those classes because I'm kinda busssyyyyyyy~

Anyways, am I part of the Gryffindor house now? :P

Aaron Vincent (aaronvincent) | 2053 comments Question! Is the Charms class homework the one DHM Cary posted or iba pa yun?


Meliza (mecawish) | 720 comments That is my question too, professors... And should we answer Prof Cary's homework at the "Hogwarts First Year Classes" thread?

Alexa (codenameblue) | 935 comments Aaron and Meliza and everyone else who may be wondering:

All the questions asked here should be answered here unless stated otherwise. Same goes for the other thread. If my Time Turner works brilliantly, I should be able to post the Charms lesson + homework questions by midnight, but only in the Classrooms thread. Anyway, what's sure is that before you rise and shine and get your breakfast at the Great Hall tomorrow, Charms would have been ready. :)

B/N
I love your enthusiasm, guys <3

Alexa (codenameblue) | 935 comments Class List updated!!

Also: The Charms lesson is now up! Please read the rules very carefully before answering.

I'm going to say this already before you comment on it: The lessons and the class homework are going to be really easy, psh, but you do have to read to understand them. I'm going to say this now: the top student will get a nice, magical little something by the end of term. How's that for incentive? :D It is also for this reason why Prof. Cary and I will load you with lots of activities, because you really have to earn your points. ;)

ANYWAY. Have fun in your first class, my dears! Don't forget to use spoiler tags in your answers, and post your answers ONLY in the Classes thread.
