Ridgefield — There is no Platform 9 3/4 at Sunset Ridge Intermediate School, but students who step into a small, private room above the media center are transported to Hogwarts. The room, created by library aide Tiffany Tamez, has a faux fireplace, Hogwarts house banners on the wall and the same spell books studied by Harry, Hermione and Ron. “We were going to have this little reading room,” Tamez said in a news release from the district. “I thought instead of just a blank little room, how about we make it feel like you’re actually sitting in a room at Hogwarts?” Tamez and her father built the wooden fireplace mantel. She made the banners for each Hogwarts house and created a fake “Book of Monsters.” Ridgefield High School’s marketing and design student team printed the artwork.
