September: Good Manners Matter

What are manners and why do they matter?

Girls will be able to recognize that good manners can go a long way by showing others respect in their actions and words. By learning the basics, this session will be the foundation of future sessions for Juliettes’s School of Etiquette.

Etiquette can carry girls throughout their lifetime. Girls will learn polite words and actions they can use in their daily life. They will recognize how that reflects through respect and social graces.

October: Let's Talk - Carry Conversations with Grace

Effective communication is an important etiquette skill that can be used in every situation regardless of age.  It's how we express ourselves by asking questions and telling stories about our day.  It also impacts our confidence and relationships we have with our teachers, friends, family and even strangers.

Sometimes our manners don’t always carry into our conversations because of excitement, anger and other emotions. Girls will recognize what conversations can have a positive and negative impact through gossip, encouragement, invasive questions, interrupting, and listening.

November (via Zoom): NETiquette

In this day and age, technology is a crucial part of our everyday life. Girls use it everyday whether it’s at school, home, at a friends’ house, or out and about on your smart devices. It is so easy to get lost behind a screen of a device that most people don’t always think before they post or send!

Lack of etiquettes online can negatively represent you as well as affect others. It is just as important to have positive social media presence and interactions online as well as off.  Who you are online is as important as who you are offline, and what you post on the internet can be viewed by anyone. \

Girls will recognize the social awareness of when it is appropriate and inappropriate to be on their phones and the kind of responsibility they have when online.

December: Gratitude - Thank you!

A simple thank you is one of the greatest things you can give someone!

With the holiday season upon us, it is important to remember the importance of saying thank you and showing gratitude to those who have done something for us or given something to us.

Girls will learn the proper technique of writing thank you notes for different occasions. Participants will also have the opportunity to create their own thank you notes to send out when they need to!

January: Dining - Table and Eating Manners

Girls will develop an understanding of the importance of table etiquette. Remembering your manners at the table prevents dinners from being uncomfortable and sloppy.

Table manners are not hard and fast rules, rather they are helpful guidelines in our social relationships, table manners ensure that both guests and hosts are comfortable at the table.

Girls will also learn the proper ways to set a table and ways they can be a good dining companion whether it is at a restaurant or at home.

February: Special Occasions - Dances and Banquets

Let’s have a party!!

Girls will learn proper etiquette for a special occasion; this includes invitations, being a guest, and how to prepare for the event. 

Similar to dining, girls will understand what makes a special occasion “special” (like weddings, birthdays, graduations, baby showers, and formals.)
