I know that every house has a flurry of activities going on as we all pack and clean our rooms before summer arrives. Though this was a rather rocky term I hope that you all had a fabulous time! This term marked the first time when we scheduled school wide meet ups and judging from the blog postings the meetups went well. I know that it's always nice to put a face to a name.
As we close up the school year, please be extra dilligent in communicating with your Head Girls and letting them know when you will be sending your kits if you have not done so already. Please also remember that Delivery Confirmation is required. We haven't had any lost packages yet this term, but this is the only way for us to make sure that you sent your package. No delivery confirmation and no received package will result in not being allowed to participate in future swaps.
As of right now these are the standings on sent packages per House:
Hufflepuff - 65%
Ravenclaw - 76%
Slytherin - 80%
As some of you are aware - HSKS 8 will be themed Summer Camp and promises to be rather different than our regular terms. There will be no Quidditch (though we may come up with a comparable substitute), no Dueling Club, and there will be no S.P.E.W. There will be meetups for the Half-Blood Prince viewing. There will be ROAK, and there will be one optional swap long competition that includes a traveling box of items. There will also be assigned mixed housing cabin mates. A lower kit minimum and maximum. Other plans are in the works and the HSKS8 blog will be updated as ideas come to fruition.
For those of you on Facebook, there is also a link to the Facebook HSKS group. This is just another way for us to communicate and interact in a fun way. The membership is closed, so if you would like to join the group you have to send a request to do so. I believe there should be a link to the right of the page. Let me know if you have problems.
I hope to see many of you at Summer Camp!!
