Education Isn’t Just…

Education isn’t just about reading and writing, and math and history;
It’s helping me become the person I am now, and the person that I’ll someday be.
Education isn’t just so I can make a lot of money when I grow up someday:
It’s helping me to give, every day I live, and make a difference along the way.

Education isn’t just about science and spelling, though they’re important too:
It’s helping me to think through everything I choose, and through everything I do.
Education isn’t just about getting smart, or sharpening my mind:
It’s helping me to start, from the very heart, to be more thoughtful and more kind.

Character Education happens year by year and day by day;
A little at a time I’m learning how to be the kind of person that I’ll be someday!

Education isn’t just about reading and writing, and math and history;
It’s helping me become the person I am now, and the person that I’ll someday be.
Education isn’t just so I can make a lot of money when I grow up someday:
It’s helping me to give every day I live, and make a difference – I can make a difference!
I’ll make a difference along the way!!
