School Song
by Steve Vonderheide

There's a place
That I know
Safe and warm
Where you can go

Children laugh
Children learn
Stories told
While pages turn

In the heart of
The Bess Brannen Child
Is a love that's growing strong
To be a part of
The family here
Is to know that you belong

Step by Step
Day by Day
Skillful hands
To guide the way

Welcome smiles
Eyes are bright
Open wings
Prepared for flight

In the heart of
The Bess Brannen Child
Is a love that's growing strong
To be a part of
The family here
Is to know that you belong

In the heart of
The Bess Brannen Child
Is a love that's growing strong
To be a part of
The family here
Is to know that you belong

Is to know that you belong
