Summer can be bittersweet around Gryffindor Tower. Many students go home for the summer or vacation with family. Many spend their time immersed in muggle life, but keep that flame of magic in their hearts. To keep up Gryffindor spirit through the summer, your Head of House has decided that we need monthly Gryffindor Birthday Celebrations!! Each month we'll celebrate a different Gryffindor (some months TWO!) by crafting items inspired by them. While you won't earn house points for these projects, you can earn a shiny new badge (to be revealed later!), and beat away the sometimes summer blues! Don't let the muggles get you down!

June Birthday - This month we'll be celebrating DOBBY, whose birthday is June 28. Even though Dobby is not officially a member of Gryffindor, his courage and bravery were proven time and again in his loyalty to Harry Potter and his friends. This month, craft something to honor Dobby. It can be a pair of socks, a stenciled pillow case, an iron cozy, or anything Dobby's memory inspires you to make!

Completed June Birthday Challenge: - pinkleo

July Birthday - July marks the birthday of our very own Harry Potter! The boy who lived, The Hero of Hogwarts, The Chosen One, Scarhead, Undesirable No. 1, whatever you call him, he's Gryffindor through and through. Craft something inspired by HP himself this summer - the possibilities are endless.

Completed July Birthday Challenge - Harry: pinkleo

July Birthday - July also marks another Gryffindor birthday - The Other Chosen One, Neville Longbottom. Underestimated for much of his seven years at Hogwarts, Neville showed his bravery at every opportunity to those who bothered to look. Craft something inspired by Neville: Maybe something with a toad, gillyweed (or other wizarding plants), a rememberall, or your own Neville-inspired creation!

Completed July Birthday Challenge - Neville: pinkleo

August Birthday - Spunky and tenacious, Ginny Weasley celebrates her birthday August 11. With six older brothers, Ginny has to be tough. She showed her Gryffindor colors over and over during her years at Hogwarts. Celebrate Ginny-style by crafting something inspired by this Gryffindor. Since it's quidditch season, how about something inspired by Ginny's Chaser position, or her professional team, the Holyhead Harpies.

August Birthday - Intelligent and stubborn, Percy Weasley also celebrates his birthday in August. While Percy struggled to find his place during the wizarding war, there is no denying the courage it took for him to see the error of his ways. Eventually, Percy returned not only to his fellow Gryffindors, but to his family as well. Honor Percy's bravery by creating something Percy would love. Maybe a non-leaky cauldron or a prefect badge.

Roar Gryffindors!!

Gryffindor Extra Credit

During the HPC Summer 2013 semester, Gryffindors can earn extra credit in EACH class. As you are crafting for your HPC coursework, incorporate the extra credit option listed (see below) for extra credit. The prompts below are very general, so have fun and get creative. Any way you incorporate these prompts will be accepted as long as you post pics and describe your work! Your extra credit can be part of your coursework craft or a distinctly separate creation. If you chose to create something distinct from your coursework for extra credit, no house points will be awarded. Students who achieve extra credit in seven of fifteen classes will be awarded a Gryffindor Prefect Badge. Students who achieve extra credit in all fifteen classes will be awarded a Gryffindor Head Boy/Girl Badge. This will transfer over to future semesters, so don't feel pressured to make Prefect or Head Boy/Girl this semester. All students can achieve Prefect and Head Boy/Girl, so get cracking! Enjoy the semester!

Course Extra Credit Options

Alchemy Use a material or tool that starts with any letter in NICOLAS FLAMEL.
Apparition Use a destination, determination, or deliberation in your craft.
Arithmancy Calculate your Character Number, Heart Number, and Social Number. Use one of them in your craft.
Astronomy Use a star, sun, or moon in your craft.
Care of Magical Creatures For Hagrid's class, craft something larger than 10''x10''
Charms Color Change Charm! Use more than one color in your craft (your choice).
Defense Against the Dark Arts Be inspired by one of the DADA teachers from Harrys time at Hogwarts (Quirrell, Lockheart, Lupin, Moody, Umbridge, Snape your choice).
Divination Speculate about the near or distant future and incorporate some aspect of your speculation in your craft.
Flying Use the color blue in your craft.
Herbology Get dirty while crafting (even some glue stuck to your hand counts!).
History of Magic Just try to stay awake.
Muggle Studies Be inspired by a muggle actor from the HP films.
Potions Use any of the common potion ingredients in your craft (a representation or picture counts!).
Study of Ancient Runes Symbols abound use one in your craft.
Transfiguration Animagus! Use an animal in your craft (not literally!).

Ravenclaw Summer Extra Credit!

Just because its summer doesnt mean we Ravenclaws are going to be taking a break from our studies.  It means we can use our free time to do more in-depth research on other topics!  So during the Summer 2013 semester, Ravenclaws can earn extra credit in each class.  Your extra credit can be part of your standard coursework or you can create a standalone project.  If you choose to create something standalone from your coursework for your extra credit, no house points will be awarded.  Extra credit options cannot be incorporated into challenges/house pride/any craft outside of coursework.  Any Ravenclaw student who completes extra credit in seven of fifteen classes will be awarded a Ravenclaw Prefect Badge.  Students who complete extra credit in all fifteen classes will be awarded a Head Boy/Girl Badge.  The extra credit will roll-over to future semesters so dont feel pressured to complete everything this semester.  Please see the extra credit prompts below.  Be creative and have fun!!!

Alchemy - Craft something using a rock or stone.
Apparition - Craft something representing where youd like to spend your summer holidays.
Arithmancy - Find your character number, then use the number or numbers meaning in your craft.
Astronomy - Craft something based on any of the constellations.
Care of Magical Creatures - Craft something inspired by your favorite mystical/magical animal.
Charms - Try your hand at something new and master the confundus charm.
Defense Against the Dark Arts - Craft something inspired by a DADA professor (i.e. - Quirell, Lockheart, Lupin, Moody, Umbridge, Snape).
Divination - Create something inspired by or something that incorporates tarot cards.
Flying - Create something inspired by clouds.
Herbology - Use plant based materials in your craft.
History of Magic - Head to the library for some research on the goblin rebellions.  Then use what you learn to inspire your craft.
Muggle Studdies - Craft something inspired by Muggle Films.
Potions - Use any of the common potions ingredients in your craft.
Study of Ancient Runes - Craft a symbol or use symbols in your craft.
Transfiguration - Vera Verto!! Turn something into a water goblet by using glass in your project.

You are here to learn the subtle science and exact art of potion making, I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses ... I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death -- if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach. - Severus Snape

Clear your mind and open your eyes to take in this wonderful expanse before.... Malfoy! This is not the time to be going to sleep! You need to stay awake for this class, just like any of your others. 10 points from Slytherin!


Today is the Summer Solstice. This marks the longest day of the year (for the Northern Hemisphere). But it also marks that the nights will begin to get longer and the days shorter as the Earth tilts back away from the Sun. For this challenge reflect on the time since the Winter Solstice. Create something that is inspired by something you've seen in the past past six months that reminded you of the beauty in the world around you. You have until the end of the semester to complete this challenge.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Would the student who charmed women's bikinis onto several grindylow in the patch of lake grasses outside our common room window please undo that horror.  There are things that can't be unseen, and that especially attention hungry grindylow making eyes at students through the glass is certainly one of them.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Pertaining to the first announcement: It has come to our attention that rather than removing the Grindylows's revealing swimwear students have instead magicked up a "Club Med" style clubhouse for the cavorting creatures.  This has resulted in debauchery which is unsuitable for our younger students.  If the originators of these shenanigans do no step forward and remove the enchantments all students will be facing the music. Speaking of music: The staff has taken the liberty of removing the Grindylow's sound system after last evening's three hour long repetition of some torture we are told is called "Salt 'n' Peppa". Hopefully there will be no more Gryndylow's "Pushin' it," real good or otherwise.

ANNOUNCEMENT:  Thank you for finally removing all spells on the resident Grindylows. We suspect that the motivation was the noise they were making banging on the windows at all hours and the appearance of very angry merpeople. Whatever it took, the staff is grateful. Now if whoever offended the portrait of Snydely Bigglesbottom by telling him he would look "hot in a speedo but not as good as that portrait of the knight in his bubblebath hanging in the prefects bathroom" would apologize we might be able to enjoy some passive-aggressive-sigh-free time in the common room again. Thank You.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Let it be known that just because Gryffindor has recently welcomed a very cute baby into their common room, Slytherin House is not approving the 43 recent requests from googly-eyed girls wearing rose colored glasses and gushing about the joys of "idle-widdle cutie patootie baaaaaaaabieeeeeesssss." Boys, it is safe to come out of your dormitories, the staff assures you that there will be no diaper changing in the common room.
Congratulations to Maman of Gryffindor!

ANNOUNCEMENT:  Pertaining to the third announcement: Be advised staff have once again uncovered the portrait of Snydely Bigglesbottom, as he has promised to keep his robes on henceforth. The unfortunate "Mr. Studliest Portrait Contest" will not be repeated and he regrets any ... discomfort... caused to students unwittingly subjected to the bathing suit portion of his shenanigans.  On a related note, the portrait of "Sir Hunksalot" has been removed from the prefect's bathroom and its new location will not be revealed. Students are advised not to go looking for it. Time would be better spent on your classwork.

ANNOUNCEMENT:   Due to the, undoubtedly innocent, release of some 50 wild Cornish pixies in the office of the Head of House we are forced to refer to the Headmistresses listing of which projects have been completed. Please see page 1 for he official house standings.
