Students in Bryton Saunders’ Career Development Program at North Middle School in the Lynbrook Public School District showed off their entrepreneurial skills during the opening of the Hoot Café on May 17.
The students surveyed teachers to collect data to develop their plan for the Café. They created a shopping list and a budget for the items needed for the opening. Finally, the students wrote a proposal to advocate for the opening of the café.
While working the Hoot Café, the students develop their communication and finance skills and experience the life skill of having a job. With the support of Principal Marianne Healy and the North Middle community, the students had a grand opening of the Hoot Café complete with a ribbon cutting. They were joined by Superintendent of Schools Melissa Burak, Lynbrook Mayor Alan Beach, Deputy Mayor William Hawxhurst, Trustee Laura Ryder and Lynbrook Kiwanis President Susan DeSena. The students had an unforgettable experience and look forward to the future growth of the Hoot Café.
