In school we learn so many things
We learn the rules, the terms, the strings.
We learn what is wrong and how to get it right.
We learn the facts that have governed life
In math we get the formulas to solve
Social studies teaches us histories good and evil
In English we learn to interperperate and express.
In science, we come to know when the theories are legit.
But what makes this knowledge come together for us in this world?
When we take what we have learned and use it to serve.
We use the formulas to solve issues of hunger.
History helps us find the path to peace for all of us.
The language skills learnd help us to Take a stand and express
To articulate what we want in this place where we live.
We learn so that we can do for ourselves and for others.
Our new skills can help us become sisters and brothers.
Teachers move your students beyond the classroom
Students open your eyes to the world.
Be eager for knowledge with a heart to serve.
