School starts next week for Fairfax County students, and local youngsters may be struggling to get excited about the end of summer. If the children in your life need inspiration to start the year off right, look no further than the carefully turned mottos of the Fairfax County schools. Whether they’re urging excellence, offering challenges, or merely using dramatic punctuation, these mottos, culled from school websites, can encourage our students to be their very best. Or in the case of Belvedere Elementary, “Better than the Best!”
