HARVARD -Fifth graders, accompanied by third grade teacher Arlene Sullivan on guitar, serenaded the Harvard School Committee and the television audience at home on Monday night. The group sang the official song for Hildreth Elementary School titled "We Love HES," The song's lyrics are:

REFRAIN

We love HES

It's simply the best

Great people you meet

Our school can't be beat.

We love HES

And there isn't a day

We'd rather be anywhere else!

VERSE 1

We're HES kids and we're proud of our school

We're from Harvard and Devens and Ayer

The teachers are kind and the principal rules

We make friends and give drops 'cause we care.

VERSE 2

We welcome you here if you're new to our school

The students make HES fun

We come here to learn and we come here to grow

Just make sure that your homework gets done. (REFRAIN)

VERSE 3

Our lunch is delicious and very nutritious

And recess is good for our health

We leave at 3:10, say goodbye to our friends

But tomorrow we'll be back again. (REFRAIN).
