The Crossett High School Special Education students have started a coffee business.

The business allows the students to sell coffee and hot chocolate to teachers in the morning before school starts. The coffee is $1 a cup, and they only sell to school staff. The program is a way for the students to become more social in school.

The business started in October with four students participating and has grown to more than 10 students.

“I feel the coffee selling is going really good and we do it so the teachers won’t be tired in the mornings,” Neel Childress said.

Literacy teacher Alicia Mann said she likes the hot chocolate.

The students were very professional, and it’s a great way to start the morning,” Mann said

Other programs have been involved in getting The Green Men up and running. Danni Dolan painted the sign for the cart in her art class. The Jobs for America’s Graduates program designed and created The Green Men shirts. EAST is in the process of creating coffee cards for the coffee cart.
