Candlelight, held after our Mountain Day activities, is our annual tradition for welcoming new MacDuffie community members. We begin as two circles–inner and outer–as Head of School Steve Griffin shares the initial candlelight flame with several students, who share with others, and so on, until everyone’s candle is lit. After several brief student speeches about the CIRCLE values, those in the inner circle join the outer circle, leaving behind the “new” designation. Together we embrace unity.
