Restaurant Ready
Like to take your school aged children out to eat with you at a restaurant but you’re a little afraid how they might behave? In this class students will learn how to use good manners at the table when dining out at a restaurant or a special event. Table manners are not just about how to hold your silverware or how to place your napkin. Good table manners also show self-awareness, respect, and courtesy to others. They are important tools for social interactions that will benefit children personally and professionally for the rest of their lives.  

Covid News:
Will be following the CDC guidelines in regards to mask mandates this fall/winter.
