An idea brewing inside a teacher's mind at Slatington elementary is filling the cups of life skills students. 

the smell of coffee and cookies welcomed those who came to the grand opening of the "LS Cafe " Friday morning. Students from grades 4 though 7 run the cafe by taking orders and ringing up customers. Life Skills teacher Ryan Stilwell came up with the idea to help his students with their communication skills. On Friday, fourth grade teachers stopped by but each week new staff are welcome.

The "LS Cafe" will be open to faculty and staff every Friday. Stilwell is hoping to open it up to all students next year.
