PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Many parents tell their children to have good manners, but one Indiana school is taking action by teaching a class.

Fifth-graders start their school day with a greeting and a handshake. It’s part of a mandatory etiquette class.

The young students learn social skills like making eye contact and becoming an active listener.

The grand finale of the class is a trip to a local restaurant where the students will put their social and dining etiquette to the test.
