  Treasure Island
     Coffee Café


  The most popular hang-out for students during lunch is the newly designed student-run coffee and smoothie café and student lounge. This newly established business was suggested by Principal Greg Mulkey and designed and put together by Stacy Gulseth, educational assistant and class of ’79 along with students at Marshfield High School.

  Students voted on the name of the café last spring. The business opened on the first day of school in 2010. It is a business that supports itself. To work in the café, students fill out a job application, submit their resume and sit down for an interview before being hired. Five to six students are employed in the café and work before school and during lunchtime. Students are trained in preparing cappuccinos, lattes, and Americanos along with blended fresh fruit smoothies and other chilled drinks. Students learn money skills, customer service, advertising and sales promotion as well as how to order merchandise. These valuable skills will help to get students ready for the real world and to prepare them for careers in business.

  In addition to the café, students have a mod and sophisticated eating lounge brimming with earth tone colors, thrift-store finds and community donations. This wonderful project would not have been possible without a generous donation from Oregon First Credit Union whom donated $5,000 worth of technology equipment.
