CHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – Be bad. Be Bold. Be Bada**, that’s what was written on a bracelet that went home with a Great Falls Elementary 5th grade student
Initially, the district wasn’t sure how many of those bracelets were actually distributed to its 5th grade graduating class by Great Falls High School.
They explained, “The motivational bracelets came in an assorted bulk package that was purchased by the school. One of the bracelets given out said, “Be Brave, Be Strong, Be Bada**. This was unbeknownst to school officials when the bracelets were distributed to the students.” That’s according to Chris Christoff, Jr., the Director of Marketing and Communications for the district.
As it turned out after investigating, only one child actually brought home a bracelet with that message. Apparently there were only three of those particular bracelets in the pack.
School administration for Great Falls High School and Great Falls Elementary School did post statements to parents on Facebook to apologize for the inappropriate messaging.
They say they “profusely apologize for the oversight, adding they would never do anything that could be perceived as disrespectful to our schools, our district, or this great community”. They also asked parents to send the bracelets back in so it could be traded out for a more appropriate one.
