The Oaks Academy, located in Indianapolis, Indiana, provides a quality, faith-based education that stretches far beyond the pages of a textbook. Students are taught the importance of respect starting at an early age. One facet of respect that we here at C&T are lucky enough to witness them learning about and putting into practice each year are good manners.
It became apparent rather quickly at last week’s Good Manners Lunch that they spend their time in an environment that fosters respect. Second and sixth graders alike listened intently to each other speak and responded with interested and thoughtful questions.This lunch occurs each year and provides students with the opportunity to use what they learn about manners in a more formal dining environment. Never has a room filled with so many second and sixth graders been so quiet as when Linda Adams, The Oaks Academy's Partner Program Director, needed their attention so the picture above could be taken. We were in awe.
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day! We look forward to and truly appreciate the opportunity to sit down and talk with these great kids each year.
