Super Mavs start coffee cart service thanks to CMDSS grant.

CMDSS was thrilled to provide a grant to Germantown Middle School‘s Super Mavs to create a coffee cart service. Students in Mary Wilsford Hodges class take orders from staff, prepare and deliver the drinks and manage the money from sales.

“This coffee cart program is teaching life skills, work ethics, social skills, money skills, and following directions all while having fun socializing with peers and staff to raise money for programs and educational outings.” Wilsford Hodges stated.

This is the second coffee cart program CMDSS has supported, the other being Clinton High School’s Life Skills class and their Arrow Brew cart.

CMDSS offers educational grants to teachers to further education and programming that benefits Mississippi children and adults with Down syndrome. This program encourages new special education services that benefit students with Down syndrome to be implemented in schools attended by members of CMDSS. For more information on CMDSS grant programs, visit our grants page.
