Oliveira Elementary soars!

Submitted By Linda Anderson, Principal

Fremont's Oliveira Elementary School students began the 2012-13 school year knowing they will continue to SOAR to new heights.

On September 7, the third day of school, all 630 students assembled on the field at 12:30 p.m. and greeted by the sounds of their new school song titled, "SOAR," which stands for Safety, Ownership, Attitude and Respect. The song was written by school volunteer Alanna Pagtakan and recorded by 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Sherri Hamilton with back up recording by the entire Oliveira Staff. After listening to the song and chanting together, "Lets Soar!" 12 white "doves" (actually, homing pigeons) were released to signify the value of working and collaborating together. The expressions on the students' faces were priceless as they realized the value of each individual on the Oliveira campus.

Here are the lyrics to Oliveira's new school song:

SOAR

Oliveira Eagles!

The school year's finally here
Where young minds take flight
And soar across the sun lit skies

Solving problems together
Perseverance is honored
And making friends along the way...

So much in life to discover
Ancient times and all the wonders
The minute you walk right through the door...

Come on (x4) Let's Soar!

Come on and Soar with me
Oliveira is the place to be
It's so much fun to learn and explore...

So Come on (x4) Let's Soar!

Come on and Soar with me
Grab a book and together we'll read
Adventure calls and so much more...
