Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church

How: The program is hosted on Thursdays from 4:30 -6:00 PM.


Manners are not just polite actions. They are a reflection of our attitudes.

Therefore, when you teach a child manners, you are teaching an attitude, not an action.  You are not teaching them what to do. You are teaching them how to be. It is much bigger!
Manners are such an important part of how a child learns to develop self-respect, character, their identity and relationships.

As a well known saying states, “The manners of today will be the morals of tomorrow.”

Topics of discussion include mindfulness,  self-confidence, attitude, respecting yourself and more. An image and etiquette lesson each week covers subjects such as what manners really are, hello and good bye, proper introductions, using proper titles, compliments, deference, handshaking, posture, setting the table, table manners, cell phone etiquette, thank you notes and much more.

Four of the sessions will include ballroom dancing. This part of the program is taught by Debbie Housand, former owner of Arthur Murray Dance Studios.
