Students in Jericho Middle School’s Skills Development Program recently launched a morning coffee cart, which offers coffee, a selection of organic teas as well as hot chocolate. The students also offered baked goods that they make in their new kitchen along with bought breakfast bars.

This coffee cart is a collaboration between teacher Karen Pascarella, social worker Joanne Verdino and speech pathologists Christine Miroddi, Kerrianne Connors and Tara Lanzisera. “The goal is to have my students integrate into the school community while focusing on socialization and life skills,” said Pascarella.

Opening day was a huge hit. The students set up by the middle school entrance to greet staff at 7:30 AM. They also traveled around the building and were quite popular.
