How the Grinch Stole Christmas Video

School Song

Our school song was written by our wonderful and very talented facility operator. We have come to love and appreciate this song very much as it captures pretty well the values and goals of our school. Here are the words:


Scenic Acres School Song

Raise the flag for another day
We’re all growing in our own special way
Each of us has come to see
How together we’re joining in sweet harmony

Scenic Acres
What a great place to be
The mountains and blue skies remind us
To see how high we can reach

Be the best that you can today
Work together let’s all co-operate
How much fun can learning be?
With so many hands building our community

Scenic Acres
What a great place to be
The mountains and blue skies remind us
To see how high we can reach
Let’s see how high we can reach
