Barren County Schools Endorses Kentucky Safe Schools Week


The Kentucky Center for School Safety announces Kentucky Safe Schools Week tol be observed October 19-25, 2014.

This year’s theme “LEAN On Me; Stop the Bullying!” focuses on the culture of the school and the interdependence of students and staff to make their school safe, warm and welcoming.  Within this overall culture students will be encouraged to support each other, connect with the staff and be diligent as they watch out for others in need. Fundamental to the “LEAN On Me” concept is straight from the song lyrics, “sometimes in our lives we all have pain and we all have sorrow” learning to depend on fellow classmates, trust the adults at school and to treat others well.  This “culture of kindness” will support the subtitle of “STOP the Bullying” by getting to the root of the problem before episodes escalate.

Spirit Day February 16th

Monday is the next College and Career dress day as well as President's day. So dress for success by wearing a college shirt, a career related outfit, or a bowtie like many of our presidents. Just last week, our Senators created a resolution for Bow Tie Day stating the "hope that every man and woman across this Commonwealth can experience the aesthetic pleasure of wearing a well-crafted and fashionable bow tie." BC is college and career ready!
