Social Outing: Holiday Lights & Whole Foods

  • Chapman Farm School 74 Accord Park Drive Norwell, MA, 02061 United States (map)

Katy Boucher Shamitz
Holiday Lights (LaSalette Shrine, Attleboro) and Whole Foods (Hingham)
Grades 3-6 welcome to register
Maximum 12 students
$60 enrollment fee (bring pocket money for dinner!)


Meet at Chapman Farm School, then climb aboard the van to enjoy a night out with old and new friends while developing hidden skills required on a typical "night out" with a group of friends-

  • Negotiating a grocery store

  • Decision making

  • Money handling and management

  • Conversation over a meal

  • "In public" table manners

  • Cleaning up for the next person coming into the space

  • Traveling in a group in a large van

  • Waiting your turn

  • Being cold, and dealing with it

This outing will teach participants to notice and understand, then practice, in a real-life setting, "social whys" with Katy’s guidance. The magic is in the presentation- kids will work hard on their social skills while eating with peers and enjoying lights- but won't even notice the hard work they are doing because they are having so much fun. It's kind of like the social version of hiding pureed veggies in pizza sauce.
