“May Street coffee is in full swing,” reports parent Colleen Jones.

The kids aren’t drinking it – they’re selling it. For the fifth year, Pacific Rim Roasters of Hood River is providing pound-bags of organic whole-bean and ground coffee, regular or decaf, for sale at $12 per bag.

“Our ambitious goal is to sell 2,500 bags of coffee. which raises about $17,500. All proceeds go to purchasing iPad technology for the classrooms,” Jones said.

Three years ago, May Street was the only elementary school in the area without iPads for the students to use. The kids at May Street have been directly responsible for all the devices in the classroom today by selling coffee. To date, the school has 165 for 20 classrooms.

“Our goal is to furnish each classroom with 10 iPads, or 200,” Jones said.

Coffee sales are happening right now through Dec. 19. Purchase coffee directly from the office at May Street Elementary School or from a May Street student. The kids will also be selling coffee in front of Rosauers after school Dec. 12-19.
