BHS administrators, staff speak out for ‘Dare Not To Swear!’

• I am most impressed that our school led campaign is now an embedded culture at BHS. I am excited and pleased that it is beginning at the elementary and middle levels so the expectations will be in place when they transition to BHS in the years to come.

• “I am glad that the “Dare Not to Swear” campaign has become such a natural part of our culture here at BHS. It is surprising that it has only been a year since we implemented the program — it seems longer because both staff and students have so readily embraced the idea. The term “Dare Not to Swear” slides so easily off the tongue when someone slips with a curse word here or there that it has become an automatic response by all. The expectation is simply that swearing is not an acceptable way to represent our Knight Pride.”
