School Song:


Between the river and the Bay
There is a School we love.
It guides us on and lights the way
Sure as the stars above.

To Calverton we will be true
As we go on life's way.
We pledge our love and loyalty
To Calvert's blue and gray.

And as we journey through the years
We hold our standards high.
We seek the truth, and finding it
Grow strong as days go by.

To Calverton we will be true
As we go on life's way.
We pledge our love and loyalty
To Calvert's blue and gray.
