Wakulla County School District’s “Legacy Café and Boutique” celebrated its Grand Opening for the new school year on October 10 with a brand new look in a new location.
It is now adjacent to the original café that was housed in the cafeteria of former Crawfordville Elementary School, the site currently used as the Wakulla County School District Office on Arran Road.
Students welcomed district personnel with refreshments and a sneak peek showing of boutique items.
The “Legacy Café and Boutique” is run by Wakulla County School District’s Adults with Disabilities class plus the Wakulla High School ESE (Exceptional Student Education) post graduates who can remain at WHS until age 22.
Students attending the Legacy Post Graduate program work to prepare the meals and the Adults with Disabilities program attendees serve their customers.
Students also create the items offered in the Legacy Boutique, ranging from various types of soap, sugar scrub, and wooden soap dishes to handcrafted jewelry and stamped spoons.
On October 17, the “Legacy Café” officially opened to the public with a wide array of luncheon salads, sandwiches, and potatoes served each Tuesday and Thursday.
Dedicated in 2012 as the “Legacy Café, David Miller Center for Successful Transition”, it was named in recognition of former Superintendent David Miller’s commitment to success for all children.
Currently supported by Superintendent Bobby Pearce, he says, “This is a great way to provide training opportunities for our students with disabilities to develop employability skills that will help them get paying jobs when they are ready to move on from the Café or in addition to working there. Our students are very proud to display the skills they have learned.”
If the public would like to dine in or place an order for pick-up, the order form link is on the Wakulla County School District website at Wakulla.schooldesk.net under “Legacy Café”.
