The launch of “Student Perks” was a huge success as Port St. Lucie High School students greeted customers with warm smiles, hot coffee, and toasty bagels among other nutritious morning treats at the open-air kiosk on the first floor of the Board of County Commissioners Administration Building located at 2300 Virginia Avenue in Fort Pierce.
This kiosk is a result of collaborative efforts between SLPS and SLC to support students in the SLPS Exceptional Student Education program. Patrons working in the Administration Building as well as customers from the general public are welcome to purchase items every Tuesday from 8:30 AM – 10:30 AM. According to Job Coach Martha Taylor, “Student Perks offers a uniquely hands-on learning experience for SLPS students. Entrepreneurs operating the shop partner with peers in the Port St. Lucie High Culinary Arts Class for the pastries that are sold.” This fits right in with the Student Perks tagline, “It’s more than coffee!”
