Last week Wendy McPhetres Mountain Middle View connections class shared their feelings about why people swear. This week they give advice and substitute words.
Knights and Squires should Dare Not To Swear! because they are always setting an example for someone.
Alternatives: fudge, poop, and popsicle

If you swear, your buddies might think youre a poser. Usually, you dont look as cool as you think. Also you always seem more professional if you use NICE words, it may open more doors for you!
Alternatives: Hot dog!, Oh my lanta, sweet niblits, and monster trucks
- Willow, seventh grade
Its not cool it makes you look stupid.

Older teens influence younger kids. Swearing can also get you in trouble at school. It can hurt your chances of getting a job. And lots of people are offended by swearing.
Alternatives: Darn it, shoot, crud, Oh no/oh man and Aww!
-Cameron, seventh grade
Squires and Knights are suppose to impress!

As a sixth grader walks by, you say a swear word and they say the same thing. At home you could have a little person and they hear you say something bad. So Dare Not To Swear!
Alternatives: Sweet mother, Holy cheese, crackers of pearl, Oh darn, dagnabit, and Oh cheese sticks.
-Lisa, seventh grade
Its rude and not respectful.
-Janelle, seventh grade
It makes it so others cant concentrate and people need to learn other words.
Alternatives: Please stop, quiet, and tell a teacher.
