WOODLAND — Students at Yale Elementary School learned table manners and enjoyed a catered, multicourse meal prepared by Woodland Public Schools’ food services during the first Fine Dining Event. Previously, Laura Perry, head of Nutrition Services for Woodland Public Schools, held the annual Fine Dining Event for a third-grade class at Woodland Intermediate School. Following reorganization of the elementary school, staff requested Perry host a fine dining event at each school. Perry visited in advance to teach students proper table manners, appropriate meal conversation topics and how to use the variety of silverware that may be in a fine dining establishment. “Many younger students have little to no experience with the different aspects of fine dining,” Perry said in a news release. “Our annual Fine Dining Event provides a great way for students to learn proper table manners while also having the chance to try delicious food that might be new to them.”
