Kayte here with some important end of school year announcements!

First up, @George Waterford is delighted to announce that She has captained Ravenclaw to QUIDDITCH CUP VICTORY! Though the final match was a tight one, Ravenclaw defeated Slytherin 160 to 110. Almost all of that was George, as seeker. Just saying.

More importantly, though, our House Cup winner is...

Student Staff
Please be advised that, as of today, any vacant prefect/head boy/girl slots are available only through Prefect Season, which officially drops this month!

Go Charming,



That's right, Charming is ELEVEN years old today—its letter has been sent out by owl, and it will be heading to Hogwarts in the fall!  From all of us on the staff team, thank YOU so much for your continued engagement, spirit, and sense of community. Charming could not have gotten this far without you <3

Summer Skins!
As is the annual tradition when we have our crap together, Summer Skins have dropped today!  We have four delightful new skins for you to choose from:

Sunshine, Daisies, Butter Mellow by MJ (@Elias Grimstone), Belle Epoch and I Prefer Men to Cauliflowers by Lady (@Tilda MacFusty), and A Presentiment by Gin (@Atticus Foxwood) are all available for use now!  You can change the skin on each account in one of two ways: use the drop-down menu at the bottom of each page to select your preferred skin, or hit up options in the UCP. Which skin(s) will you choose?

June Writing Challenge
In honour of Charming's birthday, the June Writing Challenge is LIVE, featuring eleven mini-challenges to complete before the month is out! Don't forget that for those of you who already have your monthly challenge steps, you have the opportunity to take things to the next level...
