CLARK, NJ - The Arthur L. Johnson High School Key Club shared a lesson on manners with the children of the Clark Preschool. The high school students taught and reinforced manners, an important part of social skills at the preschool level.
After setting and decorating a table, the high school students performed a skit on table manners. Following the skit, they invited the children to practice table manners through demonstration. The high school students ended their visit by singing a song about manners entitled “Please and Thank You” reinforcing the lesson’s content.
“The Key Club students kept the children focused on key messages, and the activities provided multiple ways to absorb the concepts," said the Supervisor of the Preschool/School Nurses. “Children who develop manners at a young age will carry them throughout adulthood.”
The goal of the Key Club, sponsored by Kiwanis International, is to serve the children of the world. School Counselor Ellen Zamboni is the faculty leader and advisor of the the Key Club at Arthur L. Johnson.
