Character Tree Song and Lyrics

The Character Tree Song

 

INTRODUCTION  

Out in the garden by my classroom door.

Seeds were planted when I was barely four.

Slowly growing came a big strong tree,

and on each branch grew messages for me.

Then my teachers said: “Let’s find out what they could be!”

 

CHORUS

Under the shelter of our Character Tree,

Our minds are opened to the traits we see.

I learn all together with my school family,

By following the path that it’s teaching me.

 

VERSES

Number One…Get it done…

You can count on me cause that’s RE-SPON-SI-BI-LI-TY,

Number Two…Good for you….

DE-DI-CA-TION, never give up will see you through.

Number threeRE-SPECT from me….

I will care for who you are and how you feel and what you see.

Number Four ….SPI-RIT galore (GO TEAM!).

I’ll be on your team and cheer you that’s for sure.

Number Five … I will strive…

to show COM-PAS-SION, I will help you out

when you feel down.

Number Six…This will stick…

HONOR tells the truth and teaches us to trust.

 

There is one we haven’t done.

All the others on this one depend and firmly rest.

Standing strong we march along,

It is COUR-AGE that we bravely build upon.

 

CHORUS

Under the shelter of our Character Tree,

Our minds are opened to the traits we see.

I learn all together with my school family,

By following the path that it’s teaching me.
