We Love Coffee Fridays!!

The Aviator Bean is a student-led coffee cart that provides our staff a monthly coffee & yummy treat. Teachers bring their own mug, fill it up, & enjoy each other's company. This is a great way for our students to learn communication skills, responsibility & how to run a business.
