West Linn community members participated in Harry Potter-themed activities. Children concocted their own slime potion and sat in a charms class where they affixed objects to an enchanted key in an attempt to keep it afloat for as long as possible.

Other activities included a Defense Against the Dark Arts station where students attempted to save a magical creature in the Forbidden Forest. PHOTO COURTESY OF KALEIGH HENDERSON - Zach Adams draws a slip that had a picture of a patronus, an animal guardian, on it.
