lyrics

At Shorecrest we want everyone to learn in their own way
We want to give the message that we're all okay
Don't change your style just cause you don't fit in
You're all part of this school, even when you don't win

Yet sometimes school can be really boring
There's times when your classes can leave you snoring
But don't give up, the more you effort you make
The more you'll learn, the more knowledge you'll take!

You've all been told you should get involved
So many times now the idea has palled
Maybe the clubs all sound super lame
And all you want to do is play your own game

I'mma tell you right now, if I've learned one thing
It's that it can never hurt to try out new things

Though it may seem like nothing fits your style
Just take a deep breath and give it awhile
Open your mind and let your interests soar
You never know, it might open a door!

At our school we value giving back
It's even a requirement to keep us on track
Sixty hours total, before you graduate
So why not start now, before it's too late?

But community service is more than just hours
It's a whole experience that can really empower
You to find out who you might become
Or to make a big difference in the life of someone

Even though you want to just count up your minutes
Make sure you take some time to see what's in this
Portfolio of hours you've carefully assembled
Read between the lines and see who you resemble

Looking back at all the service you've done
Did you do it cause you cared or just to get one
More hour crossed off that countdown to zero?
If you put your mind to it, you could be a hero

When you're making the decision of what to do next
Do you pick something easy or really what's best?
Maybe you like kids or the environment or medicine
You could work with animals or hike up trails on mountains

Whatever you choose, make it something worthwhile
Follow your passions, and give service with a smile
Remember it's not just about getting it done
Look at your options, and go have some fun!
