Spring-Ball-2015-Lady-and-GentlemanThe Life Skills class teaches manners as well as important social and life skills. The classes are interactive, with students moving in small groups from station to station.

Class Overview

Students discuss  topics ranging from jealousy to ethics to friendship. Each student writes and gives an acceptance speech. They work in teams for many activities, such as setting a table, learning how to tip, give a toast, tie a necktie, and shine shoes. They also review American-style eating to prepare for a four course dinner in the spring.

In February, students attend a stage production and  reception to practice their etiquette, polite conversation, and formal introductions. They also learn basic ballroom dancing in preparation for the Spring Ball.
