We have arrived...

Instead of Spooky Night in the Library we had our own Evening at Hogwarts. Nearly 100 students qualified to attend by reading one of the Harry Potter books. It was fun and the kids were so excited. We sorted the students into houses with a real sorting hat. They dined on chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, and hot cheddar scones. They ate chocolate frogs, Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans, edible wands, pumpkin pasties and butter beer. We even had a visit from a real owl, thanks to the Nature Center.

The best of friends

It's almost time...

Endless confections

Edible wands and chocolate frogs

Help me with my tie please.

We seated nearly 100

Endless food

The sorting hat

We're in Slytherin

Let us dine

All smiles

We can't wait

The ladies are excited

Looking the part

A perfect Hermoine

Are we singing?

He brought his shopping cart

Let's roll
