Join us Mondays and Wednesdays, 8-9am for Cafe Kindness, a pop up coffee stand for SES grown ups. 10% of proceeds go to the cafeteria to help balance out children’s overdue accounts, and the rest will go to the PTSA. Our goal is to connect SES with our local Portland community, teach children what kindness means and drink coffee (or tea!) while doing so. 

This is an entirely donation-based project. Anything helps! If you have creamer that you won’t use before the expiration date, we want it! Got any extra mugs? We’ll gladly take them. We’ll take any donations, really.

Come by and chat with Leaux Elstad about it, or email her at If you’d like to volunteer, there’s a place for you! We are looking for grown ups and students (5th-8th grade) to volunteer with Leaux. You can also email her about any inquiries about volunteering, as well.
