THIS SCHOOL IS YOUR SCHOOL

Sung to tune of “This Land Is Your Land”

 

This school is your school, this school is my school

French Creek Elementary, we are a country school

We are the heart of the Coombs’ community,

This school was made for you and me.

 

Although an old school, with one long hallway

From kindergarten to cosy library

With a computer lab and a gymnasium

This school was made for you and me.

 

As I was sliding on the adventure playground

 

Some kids were kicking the soccer ball around

Other kids were skipping in our clean fresh air

This school was made for you and me.

 

As I was learning my letters and numbers

And all about this big world of wonders

I felt so thankful that we all belonged here

This school was made for you and me.

 

As I was growing and the world was changing

I knew my family and friends were the main thing

I could rely on and be with daily

This school was made for you and  me

 

As I grow older and go to High School

I’ll  have the memories and all the right tools

Because we all  care for one  another

This school was made for you and me.

 

Children have come here for over a century

They are our grandparents: they are our neighbours

We are a small school with a very big heart

This school was made for you and me.
