As September started, the 6th grade students arrived at school to find Salem Elementary transformed to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizzardry. Students were greeted by Professor McGonigal and the gameskeeper Rubius Hagrid. Each student was sorted into their respective houses, travelled through platform 9 and 3/4, and then taken to their room which had been transferred into the great hall. Students made their own wands and are now listening to the story, Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone.
The first opportunity to have parents, students, and teachers meet together is coming on the 23rd of Sept. To sign up for a time to meet, follow these links. You can then choose a time that works best for you.
