Eggert Elementary Students Launch Eggert's Best

Students in Mrs. Funigiello's class at Eggert Elementary launched Eggert's Best this fall. They offer pop-up stands serving, coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and chocolate-covered pretzels. So far this year, they have delivered beverages like coffee, tea, and cocoa to staff at Eggert Elementary in addition to utilizing their storefront where faculty and staff members come to them to place their orders. The students even took a field trip to the Orchard Park Central School District Offices and had a pop-up stand there!

Eggert's Best provides its students an opportunity to work on their social skills: greeting customers, taking orders, and communicating a customer's order to their peers. They are working on cooking and occupational therapy skills like sequencing a recipe, measuring ingredients, safely handling food items, identifying ingredients, and assembling the final products!

The hot cocoa with marshmallows, peppermint, and whipped cream comes highly recommended!
