What is Merrill Mugs?  It is a student-run coffee shop by students with special needs. The students work on money management, communication, and social skills in a safe academic environment. They develop teamwork and job readiness skills during their work. The proceeds go back to the students to fund classroom incentives and field trips. It allows students real-life practice on their everyday skills to use at home, in school, and the community. Here at Merrill, the staff, visitors, and select classes are able to order drinks to enjoy on Fridays. If you want to see some hard working students, come in on Friday and order!

Merrill Mugs could benefit from donations of coffee cups with lids, k-cups in the drink flavors mentioned above, individual creamers, or other means to donate to support the coffee shop. Email Melinda Allison at melinda.allison@dmschools.org for more info!
