McClatchy Hymn

McClatchy High, we love thee;
Our love is for all to see.

You’ve led us forth through all the years
From darkness to the light.

McClatchy High, we honor thee;
Your goal is truth and right,

And now we sing our praise to thee;
All hail the cardinal and white.

All the proud and glorious name,
For all the years to come.
You’ve led us on to a victor’s goal;
McClatchy High, we love thee!
