As final exams week rolls around, the student-run coffee shop prepares to sell hot cocoa to classrooms from Monday through Friday.

“We have an option where teachers can order hot chocolate for their entire class, kind of like an end of the semester treats and we make it, deliver it, then we give each student in the class hot chocolate with marshmallows and a candy cane,” transition teacher Katie Sullivan said.

Hot cocoa classroom orders are placed by teachers and will be $1 per student.

The hot cocoa classroom sale began after a past student came up with the idea.

“It started last year and they thought it would be a good idea to see, maybe the teachers want to order hot chocolate for everyone,” Sullivan said.

Around 200 cups of hot cocoa were sold last year.

The coffee shop is run by the transition students.

Although hot chocolate is available all year long, Sullivan believes it is a way to challenge the students.

“The purpose of it (is that the transition) students don’t do finals. (So) that’s a little bit more of a challenge because it is a non-routine thing that we do to give them something to focus on and work during finals week,” Sullivan said. “It’s also good because it kind of encompasses all the different skills that we do throughout the year.”

The next event the coffee shop will have is selling frozen lemonade.
