Student Rules SongTop of Page

 

 

Student Rules Song

 

Sung to the tune of "On Top of Old Smokey"

 

If you like O.L.E.

And being outside to roam

There are rules to follow

Or we'll send you home

 

Be on time for classes

And also the bus

Have a positive attitude

And don't whine or fuss

 

When you take your classes

Stay on the trail

Follow your naturalist

So you won't fail

 

Rocks, sticks, and branches

Don't fly through the air

They are found on the ground

So please leave them there

 

Dress for the weather

Bring water and lunch

Write in your journal

You'll sure learn a bunch

 

If you like O.L.E.

And being outside to roam

Follow these rules

Or we'll send you home
