- Chaperone (social) (or chaperon) - any adult present in order to maintain order or propriety at an activity of young people, as at a school dance.
Today I am going on a field trip with my 7th graders choral class. We are heading downtown to a wonderful venue to listen to music of Bach. I love Bach! Not sure what the 7th graders will think of him. So, this is where the chaperone part will come into play for me. I have been a chaperone for this group of kids before. For the most part, they are pretty good. Giggly girls and boys who are trying to act cool for the giggly girls. Ahhh, youth.
So, I am off. To help "maintain order." Prayers would be appreciated. :)
