Creek Kid Song

Every student at Westerly Creek knows this song well.  Created by our former music teacher Ms. Judith Hill, the CREEK Kid song is sung to the tune of  “I’ve Been Workin’ on the Railroad.”

Compassion, Respect, and Empathetic, Engaged and Kindness, too.
These are the traits that we the students will try our best to do.
Compassion means that we are caring,
Respect – we treat kids right!
Empathetic – feelings we are sharing,
Engaged – we work with all our might!
Kindness is the best!  It passes every test!
Kindness is the way that we will act!
Kindness every day!  Every time we play!
Kindness that’s a basic fact!
Westerly Creek Wolves!  We’re the best!
Westerly Creek Wolves greatest in the West!
Westerly Creek Wolves in Stapletoooon!
Compassion, Respect, Empathetic, Engaged and Kindness!
That’s how we get things done!
