I did a decor overhaul myself this year- I transformed my media center (within fire regulation limits) into Hogwarts! I crafted a lot of the items myself, and even did a bunch of sewing for the various creatures you see as pictured below. I’m also running a House Cup challenge: each grade level in the HS is a Hogwarts house. When they check out a book, their “House” gets a marble drawn in. So far my Juniors are winning by a landslide, but the entire school is really enthusiastic about the new vibe! So much so, that many of the teachers are banding together and dressing up as Harry Potter characters for Halloween this year! It’s been really fun to bring everyone together!
