Did you know that there is a student run coffee cart open on Friday mornings? This coffee cart business is part of a combined functional math and social studies focus.
The business kicked off in late 2017. On Friday mornings, students use a Keurig to brew coffee and hot chocolate from 7:30 – 8:30 am in the Dining Commons. Each cup is $1.00. The proceeds are used to sustain the business and hopefully fund a field trip at the end of the school year.
This business is giving students the opportunity to practice life skills such as social exchanges, taking orders, sequencing, taking money and making change.
Additionally, these young entrepreneurs are learning about collaboration across grades because there are two upper grades students who offer so much support with ensuring the coffee business goes smoothly!
This coffee business is teaching so much to these young students and is just another example of our school’s commitment to an E-STEAM culture.
