Upcoming Events: Finishing School For the 21st Century Dining & Social Etiquette for Children

Manners are a lost art in today’s society because children are spending more and more time in front of their televisions and their computers and losing out on social interaction.

Some of the topics covered in social etiquette include:

  • Presentation Skills
  • First Impressions/Appearance
  • Body language
  • Introductions and handshakes
  • Please, Thank You and Excuse Me
  • Telephone skills
  • Thank you notes

Some of the topics covered in Dining Etiquette include:

  • Formal table settings
  • Posture at the table
  • Proper table talk
  • Menus and ordering meals
  • Napkins
  • Difficult to eat foods
  • Dining do's and don'ts

This two week class meets every Monday beginning August 13th.  The last session will be held at a local restaurant where the students can practice everything they have learned while enjoying a hosted lunch.  Classes are interactive and are taught using role-playing exercises. Students will receive a handbook containing the lessons for the course that they may keep and use to help reinforce the proper social behavior, self-respect and self-confidence that they will take away from the class – while having fun & making new friends.
