Our school has many targeted goals for the year. One identified area is attendance and office referrals for our 5th grade students. These are two areas in which we see higher than desired numbers and know that attendance and school suspensions have direct connections to future graduation rates. Named by our students, the Crazy Cool Coffee Cart is a group created to provide our students with the opportunity to work cooperatively to serve others around our school. The students are responsible for collecting coffee, tea, and hot chocolate orders from the staff and then delivering these requests on Friday mornings. The goals of this group are: (1) provide these students with a positive interaction at school, (2) encourage cooperation between students, (3) teach students to think beyond themselves to serve others, and (4) promote long-term mindsets and goal setting. Our hope is that by helping students see how vital they are to the school, they will be more likely to attend class consistently and treat those in their community (peers, teachers, staff) with respect. Both of these results are important skills for successful transitions into middle and high school. The requested four coffee carafes are essential for helping this group serve the school and learn important customer service skills.
