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 Rochelle Davis

Eeyore Eeyore has been with us since the end of January. He was rescued from a hoarding situation, so living in a real home with humans was a whole new experience for him. He is a sweet, playful little guy that has lots of energy. He is frightened of strangers but improving, learning that most of the people who come around have treats for him. His housebreaking is almost complete, but he is still afraid of being on a leash, so his ideal home would have a fenced yard or be on a safe, rural property where he can accompany you without a leash. He likes dogs (the bigger the better!), confident cats and horses. Once he knows and trusts you, he loves belly rubs and sitting on the back of the couch to snuggle.  If you have a quiet home and the patience to help Eeyore learn about the world at his pace, contact his foster mom at This email address is being protected from spambots.
