MADISON COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) – For this week’s Cool Schools, we highlight a unique class in Madison County.
On Thursdays, students at Highland Elementary put on their best outfits for “Dress to Impress Thursdays,” a fresh class that just began this year.
“This summer, our team met and Brittany Vance had the idea that we should have an etiquette class here,” said Amber Young, a fourth grade ELA teacher at the Ridgeland school.
It’s a fun, educational experience for everyone that besides from learning the math and sciences, teaches these young scholars how to succeed far beyond the classroom.
“We’ve seen a difference in the way they treat each other,” said Serenity Luckett, Principal at Highland Elementary. Adding, “hopefully, we can continue to build them to be better humans.”
“My favorite part about teaching etiquette? Honestly, it’s seeing their outfits. It’s so fun,” said Young.
Not only is the class fun, but the food, students say, is “delicious.”
