Tallahassee, FL - Some local students are getting a big lesson in manners.
More than 60 third grade students from Sealey Elementary School in Tallahassee participated in an 'Etiquette Lunch' at Hotel Duval.
The students practiced in advance learning different ways to fold a napkin as well as the proper placement of their forks and knives at the dinner table.
The students showed off their newly learned manners during a three-course meal served at Shula's.
"This is the crucial age to teach it to them because it is just going to carry on with them for the rest of their lives," said Rachel Wahl, a teacher at Sealey who helped organize the lunch.
The staff at Shula's volunteered their time for the lunch.
The school hopes to make the lunch an annual event.
