School song

Sing to the tune of “You’re A Grand Ole’ Flag”

We’re a super school
And we’re proud of it too!
Our students will challenge the rest.
For we know the pride, we feel inside,
When each one has given their best.

The more you know,
The further you go,
And we stand up to the test.
We raise our voices to the sky,
Pearson Ponies, we are the best!
