PTSA’s Golden Roast funds success

According to PTSA president Tracey Morganelli, the Golden Roast Coffee Shop has helped fund school projects beyond the group’s initial dreams.

“We rolled out the coffee shop this year not knowing what to expect,” Morganelli said. “We set a goal to make maybe $200 a day, but we were a bit nervous that the number might be too much. Next thing you know, the coffee shop has exploded at $500-$600 a day.”

Morganelli said that the money raised from the coffee shop and other fundraisers will be able to fund scholarships, coordinate more events and fund beautification projects for the school. 

The PTSA encourages students to reach out if they have any additional projects they want to see come to fruition.

“Everyone can come to our meetings,” Morganelli said. “We want to know what students want so we can get it done for them. Every penny earned (by the PTSA) goes right back to the school.”
