Bulldog March - A New School Fight Song

West Point Band member helps schools celebrate two centuries of learning

Two Centuries of Learning Teacher Committee
West Point NY | September 1, 2016

West Point Schools received a unique gift on 19 August 2016 during the Kickoff Ceremony for the celebration of Two Centuries of Learning.  Master SGT Michael Reifenberg presented the score the Bulldog March he composed to the three WPS music teachers.  Master SGT MaryKay Messenger helped the audience sing the new fight song as the West Point Band's recording of the piece played. 

The song's lyrics are:

West Point Bulldogs

We are proud to bear that name

Always cheering for the

Black and Gold and Gray

Respect and Responsibility

Our best we'll always do

West Point Bulldogs

To thee I will be true

This new song exemplifies the strong community support for West Point Schools that has been present from the earliest days through current times.  We look forward to hearing our West Point band students perform the song later this year.
