Les Julian-Music and Lyric on Chorus

Story

CHECK OUT THIS SONG:

 "WE'VE GOT THE POWER AT BOWERS"

This is the current Bowers School (Manchester, CT) song. LJ created the music and chorus and the students created the verses during the Write of Passage workshop described on the WORKSHOP page. The entire school sang on the chorus in a GIGANTIC recording session. The song helps students understand the school's Positive Behavior Support (PBS) system and what's expected of them.

The school then commissioned 1000 copies which are handed out to every incoming kindergarten class.

Story

CHECK THIS NEW SCHOOL SONG OUT! It was created in my School Song-Creating program in May/2011. The LAKE STREET 5th graders (Vernon, CT) and their teachers were really into it and that made all the difference. They now have a new school song! Here's the CD cover chosen by the teachers and done by one of the 5th grade students. The school ordered 500 copies to sell at their fund-raisers and to give to incoming kindergarten classes. Let me know if you'd like this program at your school.

                            

Lyrics

WE MAKE IT HAPPEN AT LAKE STREET

Music and chorus by Les Julian

Lyric by LSS 5th grades and Les Julian

INTRO

            We make it happen at Lake Street School

VERSE 1

New students at Lake Street are welcomed as friends
They quickly get that learning here is fun
Clubs and activities, music and library
School can be awesome! C’mon everyone

CHORUS

            We make it happen at Lake Street
Feel the heartbeat
We care about each other
We learn from one another
At Lake Street yeah it's pretty sweet
Learning that learning's cool at Lake Street School

VERSE 2

Learning new and diff’rent things everyday of the week
Reading, writing and creating new arT
In math, gym and science we’re growing in confidence
Yeah we work hard but that makes us smart

CHORUS

           We make it happen at Lake Street
Feel the heartbeat
We care about each other
We learn from one another
At Lake Street yeah it's pretty sweet
Learning that learning's cool at Lake Street School

BRIDGE

             Responsibility it’s up to you and me
Respectfulness too it’s up to me and you
When we cooperate everybody’s safe
Show our lion’s pride, Show our lion’s pride, ROAR!

CHORUS

            We make it happen at Lake Street
Feel the heartbeat
We care about each other
We learn from one another
At Lake Street yeah it's pretty sweet
Learning that learning's cool
We make it happen at Lake Street
Feel the heartbeat (heartbeat claps x 4)
We make it happen at Lake Street
Feel the heartbeat (heartbeat claps x 4)
We make it happen at Lake Street
Feel the heartbeat (heartbeat claps x 4)
