End of Year Thoughts 2015

The end of the year is often a time to reflect upon the past and to ponder the future. This has been another year of momentous change at The MacDuffie School, marked by growth of the student body and a change of ownership. With the change has come progress in the form of exciting projects. We have made strong commitments:

— to our entire student body (student lounge furniture and…a snack!)
— to accessibility (the LULA elevator project)
— to our Boarders (new common room furniture)
— to making Granby our permanent home (a new entrance with a MacDuffie seal and new signage)
— to the environment (a recycling program; new water fountains)

The future holds even more promise of enhanced programs and enhanced facilities–it’s an exciting time to be a member of the MacDuffie community. However, with all of this talk of programs and facilities, we must remember to thank parents for making a commitment to MacDuffie. It truly is all about providing a superlative experience to a great group of young men and women and helping to achieve our mission for each one of them.

I wish you a peaceful December break; I hope that many of you are able to reconnect with family and friends, and I look forward to our start of classes on Tuesday, January 5th.

With warmest regards,

Steve Griffin
