TRUSSVILLE — The Hewitt-Trussville Middle School Etiquette Club visited The Club in Homewood on Saturday, Oct. 17 for lunch. The Etiquette Club is one of the many clubs sponsored by HTMS teachers during HT Time, a time set aside in the day for students to participate in a club of their choice.
Students who choose Etiquette Club learn about table manners, invitation etiquette, movie etiquette and basic social expectations.
The clubs last for approximately 10 weeks and at the end of Etiquette Club, students are given the opportunity to attend an elegant lunch at The Club to practice their newly acquired etiquette skills. Kathy Troncale, Etiquette Club Sponsor, said “Etiquette is a skill that students need now, and will continue to use later in life. Providing a way for students to acquire this skill set in a comfortable and safe environment is a win-win for all involved. “
