Doing a BWU right when you're back from vacation is either a great way to catch up on things or a disaster waiting to happen. xD Let's find out which one this will be! :woot:
School Deets!

That was a quick break, amirite? :o

But it's time to get back to it. Semester two started last week, which means we are already heading into week 2! Yep, you read that right.

In order to move us forward, the holiday areas are now closed though there will be a Brightstone weekend before you know it

Professors, please make sure to have make up sections posted. Students, please make sure you've enrolled in your courses.

Everyone, have fun roleplaying lessons!! :cool:

More school stuff!

To help us out, we have a few new professors covering lessons:

Professor Lillian Sword will be covering History of Magic 1-4
Professor Jacqueline Burke will be returning to her position in Transfiguration 5-7
Professor Monty Pendleton will be covering all of the Potions lessons for this semester only

Welcome to all the new profs! :party:

As no one applied for Care of Magical Creatures, staff will be covering the subject. We hope you'll consider applying when the application re-opens. Professors are an essential role on site, and it's important to have non-staff in these positions so we can free up time to focus on other things. :correct:

Professors should be sure to check out and participate in the mandatory professors meeting. Check your PMs for details. :)

We have some winners!

Two sets of winners have emerged from the wheelbarrow race:

1st: Jessica Cade and Gideon Zelinsky
2nd: Zenia Katsaros and Rose Thornhill

Congratulations to them and thank you to everyone who participated in this event! :party:

A big thank you to Claire as well for running the event! :)

Fight! Fight! Fight!
It's time for the students to have a crack at some duels. Here's hoping for some victories not by time out! :P

If you're interested in participating, please head to the sign ups where you can read about eligibility and dates and more. We can't wait to see how these go.

Last Debate

We are nearly at the end of our campaign season, but there is one debate left. One more chance for the candidates to win your votes and promote their viewpoints. So make sure you give it a read.

If you're eligible to participate as a spectator, I encourage you to do so. We've never allowed outside participation, and your (in)activity will help determine if we ever do again. ;)

Don't forget that, even if you aren't on the short list, you're encouraged to start your own roleplays listening to the debates. ^_^

Wizenga-what?!

The Wizengamot pulled no punches as they sent Metrophanes Matthias packing to Azkaban in Minister Kingsley's last trial as the Chief. [Hidden Content: Login/Register to View] and see his sentence.

An uncompleted sale is a sad thing...

Shopkeepers, please take a moment to check in on your shops to complete any sales related to semester two. This allows students to enroll in courses.

Please make sure you're periodically checking in on your shops and ensuring that sales are completed by you and/or your staff. Please ensure your staff are active and hire if you need to! Thank you!

Flower Deliveries

If you've signed up to deliver flowers, please make sure you're paying attention to your PMs in the next few days to help the process move along ahead of the Valentine's day party. A big thank you to Steven for organizing this event.

  • Valentine's Day party :wub:

  • Sunshine & Rainbows

Alrighty, which one is this? If I've forgotten something please kindly mention it below. Otherwise, I'm happy to hear your comments below too.

I'm hoping you all will have a good week this week! ^_^

Until next time,
Cyndi
