When students rush into school from the bus, the Nook is there to welcome them on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
The Nook coffee shop moved from the IMC to the previous bookstore at the beginning of the school year. Sales started very high but have decreased as the year goes on.
“At the beginning of the year, we were averaging 13 to 15 drinks a day, but now we are only averaging around five drinks a day,” Mrs. Julia Reynolds, media specialist, said.
The students who work in the Nook enjoy working in the mornings.
“I love working in the Nook in the mornings,” junior Alexa Ashmore said. “It is something to look forward to during the week. It provides a nice opportunity for teachers and students to get a drink in the morning.”
The Rosie Raffle still stands as a weekly occurrence, so students should read from the current Eliot Rosewater Indiana High School Book award list hopefully to win free Nook drinks.
“The Rosie Raffle is a great incentive for students to read great books,” junior Ally Hussung said.
Though sales are lower, no one is discouraged. Profit and the number of sales are not the main focal point for this year.
“Boosting sales has not been a major focus. The big focus was to get the Nook launched and running,” Mrs. Reynolds said. “Now that I have seen a fluctuation in sales, I have a structured plan for next year.”
This plan includes more signage, and the Nook possibly will be open during PowerHour next year.
“We might be open during PowerHour in the library in the future,” Mrs. Reynolds said.
Students should stay tuned for an announcement about future sales.
“We might have sale days towards the end of the year to push product,” Mrs. Reynolds said.
