Senior Coffee Hour was held last week at the Mountain View Apartments Community Room during BFA Fairfax Support Block. Students prepared and served coffee, tea, banana muffins, and fruit salad.  They even made a delivery to a senior that was not able to attend.

Students had this to say about their community outreach:

“Coffee hour was a great event!”

“So nice having the senior apartments so close to our school.”

“It was cool especially for the lady that we delivered muffins to.”

This learning opportunity encourages students make connections with neighbors and make a difference in their community and world.
