School Song

REACH FOR THE MOON
Lyrics by Lori Wall
Music by Lori Wall & Don Harper

We wear red and white with pride the colors of our school
We show the world we know it's true Banyan Bobcats Rule
We help each other learn and grow to be all that we can be
Starting here we're building dreams, just you wait and see

Chorus
We'll reach for the moon and then go even higher
We'll jump over too 'cause Bobcats never tire
of doing our best, we won't give less
EFFORT EQUALS SUCCESS

Responsible, respectful too, kindness is our way
We want to show integrity each and every day
Banyan is our family and I 'm so glad it's mine
Together we can change the world one heart at a time

Chorus
