||[12 Aug 2004|10:20pm]
Hello Students, and welcome to another year at the Salem Witches' Institute. I'm Deputy Headmaster Bryce Ferris, Professor of Charms and Transfiguration and Dorm Advisor for Amherst Dormitories. I've got a great deal of paperwork to get back to, so I'll just cut right to the chase:
( Rules for Amherst DormitoryCollapse )
That being said, please keep in mind that the access door between the Amherst common room and the Library will only work until 9:00 at night, when the library closes (except during exam/finals time). Peer Tutoring will begin after classes do, and anyone interested in being a tutor should sign up on the clipboard tacked to the bulletin board. Also, please see Professor Williams's post regarding Amherst's invitation to the Saturday brunch at Sheffield dormitories. Questions should, as always, be directed to,
Deputy Headmaster Bryce Ferris.

Greetings students, this is Katherine Williams, Professor of Advanced Potions and Dormitory Advisor of the Sheffield Dormitories. I've just finished sending the last of my Supply lists and dorm assignments to my students, and I thought it was time to set down some of my standard ground rules.
( Sheffield Dormitory RulesCollapse )
After the first week of classes, please remember we will be voting on Floor Advisors for the year. There are four positions available (one for each floor), and anyone who is interested in running should post their qualifications on the bulletin board in the main lounge. Voting will take place on an evening to be announced.
Also beginning after the first week of classes, Sheffield will once again be hosting Saturday Brunch at nine o'clock in the morning in the Parlor. Students in Sheffield and Amherst dormitories are invited to attend for a chance to socialize and have a formal meal. Formal dress is required, and punctuality is also appreciated. The brunch will run until about eleven o'clock.
Please be aware that there are several practice rooms available for students taking private instruction in piano, voice, stringed or woodwind instruments. There are three of these rooms, available by appointment or by signing yourself in, if a room is available. These rooms are available to all students between the hours of 7:00 AM and 9:00 PM.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, you can leave a note for me or see me in person at my classroom.

Almost forgot to post the sports schedules. This was hell to co-ordinate, but we've got everything ironed out. It's only good up through Winter Break, the rest of the year will be worked out later on.
Soccer Tryouts will be held Monday September 3rd through Wednesday September 5th.
Cheerleading Tryouts are held Tuesday September 4th through Thursday September 6th
Football Tryouts are held Wednesday September 5th through Friday September 7th.
Basketball Tryouts will be Wednesday November 7th through Friday November 9th.
Be there or be square!
Anyway, here are the schedules for Football and Soccer (Basketball hasn't been ironed out with their coach yet):

And, for a quick reference, here's the master schedule for all Football and Soccer games in the Division: ( Master ScheduleCollapse )

Saturday games will begin at 3:00 PM, and the team should get to the locker rooms no later than 2:00. Portkeys will be available for students who want to see games in other schools and will be departing at 2:30.
|[Coach Tony Clark] August 20, 1984: Hey from Ludlow
||[12 Aug 2004|08:10pm]
Coach Tony Clark here, Phys Ed instructor, Faculty Advisor and Dorm Advisor over at Ludlow Dorms. We're gearing up for more good times here at the dorms, and I picked up some new frisbees - hopefully this batch will stay off the roof.
First things first, though: ( Some rules.Collapse )
Okay, as for activities this year, I'm probably going to be pretty busy with coaching (We will win the championship this year!), so I'm going to leave it up to some of the returning students to continue with traditions. Out back door lets out half a block down from a great park wtih an open field, and anyone who wants to start a pickup game of anything should feel free. Just sign out equipment from the game room off the lounge and make sure to bring everything back in one piece. In winter, I'm going to try and set up a foosball tournament, because someone expressed interest last year.
If you have anything you want to suggest, feel free to slip a note under my door or find me between classes some time, I should be around.

For those of you who don't know, I'm Martha Smith, your
|Muggle Social Studies professor for this year. I'm also the dorm advisor for Wayland Dorms, as well as the Student Advisor for students with last names S-Z. This is my general State Of The Dorm address for everyone.
First things first: ( The Rules of Wayland DormitoryCollapse )
Things are fully prepared over at Wayland, and I've just re-hung the suggestion box on my door. (Apparently someone's suggestion on the last day of summer school was that I relocate the box to the roof of the equipment shed, but
Tony Coach Clark was kind enough to bring it back for me and help me put it back.) I also spoke to the Soup Kitchen, and we're on for next Saturday morning.
Once again, the invitation is open to all students, not just the ones in Wayland: Anyone interested in helping out at a Boston Soup Kitchen should feel free to come to the lobby of Wayland Dorms (it's the light blue door on the right side of the dining hall) at 8:00 AM next Saturday morning. The soup kitchen is only a block away from Wayland's front door, and we'll be there for two hours, then grab some brunch on the way back (though you'll have to pay your own way, sorry). I'll be running this trip every other Saturday until further notice, and you don't have to sign up, just show up.
Also, starting soon: 7:00 PM on the first Sunday of each month will be Open Mic Poetry Night at Wayland. Once again, there's no sign up form, and admission is free, though you're more than welcome to contribute a dollar or two to the refreshment fund. Depending on funds, each month we'll try to have soda, chips and/or pizza. Bring original poetry, or something you wanted to share: the environment will always be supportive
I suppose that's it for me. I've posted all of these notices on my door (Ground Floor, first door down the hall off the lobby) as well, over the suggestion box and under the bulletin board. If you need to reach me, comment in my journal, I check it often. If you want a face-to-face meeting, my classroom is in Shermer Hall, third floor, first door on the left and I'm generally to be found there, or in the office that's adjacent. During office hours at the Guidance Department, check in with the receptionist and she'll send you down to my office: last door on the left.
( My Weekday ScheduleCollapse )
Have a great year everyone, and if you have any questions, feel free to see me.
