Like the Earth which nourishes and protects us,
members of the Stones Lodge seek to deepen their connections to world around us, finding our inner strengths while expanding our wizardly knowledge and skills—and having fun doing it!

The Circle of the Standing Stones—usually known simply as “The Stones Lodge” (we’re a laid-back lot!)—is one of the most active groups in the Grey School. As many time holders of the Lodge Cup and with record levels of advancement and extracurricular meritorious activities, we’ve always got several things going on at once. Whether working on magickal activities, sharing book reports and ideas, studying minerals and crystals, or simply cheering each other on, the Stones Lodge serves as our home in the Grey School, and we’ve made many friends in our cyber-common room. 

Besides often holding the Lodge Cup, our Lodge has distinguished itself in the following ways:

•    The Stones had the Grey School’s first Prefect

•    That Prefect went on to become the Grey School’s first Captain—the highest recognition available to Grey School Apprentices.

•    The Stones are past winners of several all-school events, including the Earth Day Challenge, the Winter Bird Count Challenge, and the Poetry Challenge.

•    Our attention to academics has placed dozens of Stones on the school Dean’s List and has seen us pass more classes than any other Lodge.

•    Our members are represented across the Grey School’s Apprentice awards and societies and have participated in various in-person “meet-ups” and Conclaves.

The Circle of the Standing Stones stands proudly behind our motto:  Firmitas ~ Integritas ~ Magnanimitas ("strength, integrity, greatness of soul"). We look forward to more fun and more achievement in the future as we grow in magick and wizardry, and we will proudly welcome new members into our midst!

Stones Lore and Legend

Here's how to pronounce the motto: The words are accented as follows, using capital letters to indicate the syllables which get stressed: FIRmitas, inTEgritas, magna NImitas! The vowels in these words are pronounced: short "i" as in "pin" short "e" as in "pen" short "a" as in "far" (NEVER as in "cat"!) The last "a" in each word is actually a long "a", but in Latin this simply means that you "sit on it" a tad bit longer when you say it... the same sound as the short "a" but you hold the vowel for a few fractions of a second more. (Which is where the terms "short" and "long" for vowels originally came from!) But if that part feels too complicated, don't worry about it! But DO make sure to roll your "r's"! (It's fun, and a true ancient Roman would do it!) FIRrrrmitas, inTEgrrritas...
