It is time to announce the early House Points! I will also give a little explanation on how I add the points.
Specific activities in HSKS are worth numerical points. One of the early House Point incentives was to post the HSKS logo in the sidebar of your blog by Friday, September 12th. Each person that had the logo posted earned 5 House Points. I take all the points possible and divide them against the actual points in order to get a percentage. So, say there are 23 Gryffindors. The possible number of points that they can earn for the Early Points activity was 115. If only 20 of them participated in the activity then would receive 100 points. So, 100 divided by 115 will give me a participation percentage of 87%. All scores are accumulative.
Right now I rely heavily on the Head Girls to keep track of the scores and log them on a special sheet that I have created. At any time, however, sporadically for no reason and should I deem it necessary, I will go student by student to validate the scores to make sure that they are correct. So, if you ever see a drastic change in your House scores that would be the reason why.
Take Heed!!! Just because your House may run behind throughout the entire swap it does not mean that you should give up. In HSKS 2 Hufflepuff ran behind almost the entire swap, but because they found the Snitch in the third round they came from behind and won the House Cup. Overall, your House needs you to participate - that is mainly what this swap is about. So, sit back, have fun and make some long lasting friends :)
