“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; … who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; … who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – President Theodore Roosevelt (1910)

Inspired by President Theodore Roosevelt’s encouragement to live lives of great daring, PS 280’s classroom teachers were asked what one word or phrase do they want inspiring their students throughout the day. Their responses naturally organized around the ideas of “Dream,” “Be,” and “Do,” and together with the President’s quote mark the school’s main entrance.
