March continues the spring term, and here are our current standings:
Now remember, we're only halfway through the year, it’s still early; so it’s anyone's guess as to who'll get first! (Keep turning in those homework and extra credits guys!)
As always, the new month brings new puzzles in our Monthly Challenges and activities in the Creative Outlet sections of the HOLLERS Forum!
March is Ravenclaw's Pride Month (sorry Lions, Badgers, and Snakes- it's Ravenclaws only!)
Other members of HOL though can check out the Art Department and keep on eye out for new projects! You can also join their debate club!
Gryffindor has something adventurous in the cards so be on the lookout and make sure you know where to find your hiking boots! In the meantime, you can always stop by Peeve's Place in their common room for some fun games!
Hufflepuff has some badger-only events coming up, but everyone can head to the Department of Hufflepuff Games and Sports for some hard challenges and the chance to win some shiny diamonds (the Hufflepuff House points system)! Those who participated in the Sett Olympics can also expect to see their diamonds/awards soon
Slytherin is gearing up for the season with a Spring Scavenger Hunt! Everyone is welcome. While you wander the dungeons looking for clues, why not stop by the Puzzle Exchange or our new GOBstones Club?
You can also join in with our read-a-long; we're working our way through book 4 and it's a great way to earn scales (Slytherin's house points system.) Don't forget to turn in your submissions for the next Serpentimes, due March 15!
For you snakes out there, stop by #slytherin on IRC the last weekend of each month for Study Hall! Watch this space for more information and times!
News From Around HOL
The Snitch Tournament is wrapping up with the Playoffs after a few tie breaker races take place. Check here for the schedule of the matches! Don’t forget to post your guesses in Unfogging the Quidditch Pitch before the March 10th match of Hufflepuff vs. Ravenclaw and the March 17th match of Gryffindor vs. Syltherin.
This month, the Book Club is reading and discussing the classic fantasy novel, “The Never Ending Story.” Plus, you can still sign up for their year-long activity, Book Bingo! As always, you can still read (and write!) book reviews and discussions in the various other sections of the Book Club; lots of chances to earn beans and add shiny awards to your trophy shelves!!
