Alpha and Omega: the beginning and the end.
As a long-standing tradition at Mount Vernon, Seniors and Preschoolers parade together at Mustang Rally – the School’s all-day, all-community celebration. Signifying the beginning of one’s MV journey through Commencement, our youngest and eldest students – each with their unique story and perspective – come together to close the circle. With each class that graduates, a new one enters, bringing with them an opportunity to engage, spark, and change the world. They are not competing for status. The stand shoulder-to-shoulder and work energetically together. They move quickly, spotting problems, and offering help. They experiment, take risks, and notice outcomes, which guides them toward effective solutions. As each class moves on to take the world by storm, they leave a legacy for those who follow.
Congratulations to the Class of 2018!
