School Events
All events are located in the school calendar.

Most monthly events will be played out on the community. Repeating events can be played at player request.
Repeating Events
Day Trips to St. George's Way occur once monthly on Sundays. Students are transported to the Way to visit the shops located there.

Quidditch Games occur from October to early April, Saturday afternoons. Some matches are the two Dresden teams playing each other (for practice or to decide who will play the next away game). They play other schools in North America, both away and at home.

Quodpot Games occur from October to early April, Saturday evenings (excepting vacations). All games are between the Dresden house teams. All games are played on the Dresden Quodpot Pitch.
Non-repeating Events by Month
September
The first weekend of the school year is an exciting time for students looking to pick up extracurricular activities. The Club Fair is held twice annually; after Summer Break at the beginning of the school year, and six months later for those interested in joining later on. At this event, each club promotes its activities and agenda to fellow students in the hopes of recruiting like-minded individuals to enjoy the benefits of club membership.

Parents’ Weekend occurs over the last weekend of September and is an excellent opportunity for families of students to come and explore the environs and workings of Dresden Academy. Students and faculty alike are available to answer questions and guide visitors on a tour of the facilities.

Immediately prior to the first Quodpot game of the season Dresden Academy kicks off Spirit Festivities. In this period, the House teams and cheerleaders attempt to rally support and House pride amongst the students. Sometimes the Events Committee will organize activities for the student body to encourage interaction and goodwill.

At the end of Spirit Festivities is one of the most anticipated events of the school year: the Homecoming Dance! Nominations for Court are accepted in the week prior, and voting occurs on the night with the results announced midway through the evening. It commences after dinner at 7pm, and ends at 10:30pm. Younger students are permitted to observe the 11pm curfew of the upperclassmen on this occasion. The event is strictly chaperoned. The theme of the event is determined by vote of the Events Committee and is announced in advance.
October
Eat, drink and be scary! All Hallow’s Eve is an important date in the Wizarding world, and Dresden Academy celebrates it in style with Halloweenfest. On the nearest Friday to Halloween after being ‘tricked’ into a hard day’s study, students are ‘treated’ to a dinner of traditional harvest foods followed by a costumed social event in the evening, at which teachers give out candy, and classic activities such as apple bobbing and piñata are offered. It commences after dinner at 7pm, and ends at 10:30pm. Younger students are permitted to observe the 11pm curfew of the upperclassmen on this occasion. The event is strictly chaperoned.

Purchases may only be made between class or on breaks, but will be delivered throughout the day. The Sweetheart Dance is held on the nearest Friday evening to Valentine’s Day. It commences after dinner at 7pm, and ends at 10:30pm. Younger students are permitted to observe the 11pm curfew of the upperclassmen on this occasion. The event is strictly chaperoned. The theme and dress code of the event is determined by vote of the Events Committee and is announced in advance.
March
The Spring Fling Festival is held over the three days in late March. During this light-hearted time, outdoor activities are at the forefront in celebration of the fine weather. In the afternoons an outdoor screen and projector are set up for some open air cinema, and competitive and recreational water sports are held at Lake George (only competent swimmers are permitted to participate). On the Friday evening, a hayride takes the students on a scenic tour of the school grounds before dropping them off outside Dresden Hall for the Spring Fling Dance.The hayride commences after dinner at 6:30pm, and the dance ends at 10:30pm. Younger students are permitted to observe the 11pm curfew of the upperclassmen on this occasion. The event is strictly chaperoned.

April
There are no non-repeating events in this month.
May
Over Spring Break, students are sent home with information regarding courses of study over the next year of their education. This can be as simple as a list of electives and advanced study options for years 1-6, up to and including information about the Dresden Academy University Program and brochures for other higher education options for seniors. In Scheduling, the first week of May, students meet with school counselor Dr Nathaniel Dawkins for a short interview to discuss their educational needs and ambitions.

Prom is a formal event open to all students (given that the school is relatively small) and is held in early May. Nominations for Court are accepted in the week prior, and voting occurs on the night with the results announced midway through the evening. It commences after dinner at 7pm, and ends at 10:30pm.
