 BE  _____.
......a message from William Seder, Superintendent

“To be or not to be” is the opening phrase of a soliloquy spoken by Prince Hamlet in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.”  The word “be” is used in the English language as a verb.  I see it as an action word that requires each of us to make a conscious choice to “Be ______,” and you fill in the blank.
I would encourage you to think about what you want to “Be ______” this year as you build friendships, work with students and teachers, and interact with members of our Mount Vernon Community..  Be Inspiring, Encouraging, Kind, Empathetic, Creative, Loyal, Humble, Thoughtful, Caring, Respectful. You get the idea.  Once you have determined your BE word, go one step further and turn it into action. Be  __________.
