Students have completed job applications, resumes, elected a company president, sold shares in their company, come up with a store name, learned how to operate a cash register, espresso and coffee maker, and learned how to cooperate and collaborate with each other to accomplish a shared goal.
Students have also been given the opportunity work with John Utermohl, a community volunteer who is also a 3M retiree. John has taught the students more about the stock market, aligning their interests with possible careers, as well as consulting with them on their coffee shop.
This spring, we will be sending two groups to compete in the Team Advertising event at MAAP Stars. Each group is currently developing a marketing and advertising plan for their coffee shops “Morning Motivation” and “Pick Me Up”.
The Coffee Shop was funded by The Partnership Plan, the education fund for Stillwater Area Public Schools
