Lansing Elementary Chorus Performs New School Song

May162014
Last year teachers and students at R. C. Buckley Elementary School decided to write a school song.  The students voted to write their lyrics to the tune of 'Rockin' Robin' and shared all the things lhey love about their school on a big sign.  Teachers and staff crafted the lyrics from these ideas.  Monday the third and fourth grade chorus sang the new song for the Lansing Board Of Education.  Here is a video of their performance.  Elementary School Principal Christine Rebera introduces the song and music teacher Katie Howell accompanies the kids on the keyboard.  The lyrics are printed below:


Verse 1:
We walk in the doors with our heads held high
We smile at our friends as they go by.
We’re kind and honest all the day long
Making school a place where we all belong

CHORUS
R. C. Buckley is…the…best
R. C. Buckley is…the…best
Go, R.C. Buckley ‘cause we’re really gonna rock our school

Verse 2:
Working in the classroom at math each day,
Reading and Writing and then out to play.
We head to encore and what do we see?
Music, Art, Library and P.E.

CHORUS

Bridge:
You go to Kindergarten and meet new friends,
In 1st grade and 2nd grade, the fun never ends
You learn about the world when you’re in 3rd grade
In 4th you’re the oldest so you’ve got it made!

Verse 3:
We respect our teachers, and our classmates,
We love to learn, our school is great
From the tallest to way down low,
Every Buckley student shouts “BOBCATS, GO!”

CHORUS

Pet of the Week

by Sarah Post

lucy Lucy is here at the SPCA only because her owner is terminally ill and can no longer care for this loving, sweet cat. Lucy had belated surgery as a youngster for her inverted eyelids, which is the cause of her vision difficulties:  limited, but she gets around independently and can follow wand toys if you want to encourage her to play. There have been no medical issues since then. She loves people, and is affectionate and sweet. She prefers a home with no other cats - or one or two at most. Lucy likes to sleep/hide under her blankets! She can be a little shy at first, but warms up very quickly and is super affectionate. She loves attention and is full of purrs and head butts when happy. Spread a little love around YOUR home, not to mention on Lucy!
