What’s Merrill Mugs? It is a student-run coffee shop by students with special needs. The students work on their money management, communication, social, problem-solving, collaborative, and other skills in a safe academic environment. The students charge $2 for the drinks and the proceeds go back to the students to fund classroom incentives and field trips. It allows them real-life practice on their everyday skills to use at home, in school, and the community. Here at Merrill the staff, visitors, and students are able to order drinks to enjoy on Fridays.
