Each year the high school students participate in the Logos Protocol program in which we teach the importance of manners and deference. After teaching classes on proper dress, the art of conversation, table etiquette, and more, we create an enjoyable social event in which the students can practice and become comfortable with what they have learned. Each year the juniors and seniors participate in High Protocol, a formal event, usually in Spokane. The freshmen and sophomores participate in Protocol, a local semi formal event.
Last year the juniors and seniors went on a cruise on Lake Coeur d’Alene to The Cedars Floating Restaurant, enjoyed listening to music performed by Samuel Dickison ’07, and finished with dessert at the Coeur d’ Alene Resort before heading back to Moscow.
It is important to keep in mind that this is not the equivalent of “prom” or a date–it’s better. The young men are assigned a young lady to escort for the first half of the event, and escorts are changed at least once during the evening.
