Community Helpers Visit - Freson Bros. IGA

Today the ECS and Grade 1s received a comprehensive tour of High Prairie's Freson Bros. IGA.  We went behind the scenes and got to see all the hard work that goes into preparing food for us to eat and stay healthy.  They treated us to watermelon slices from the produce department and juice boxes.  As well as a beautifully decorated cake for us to take home.  The kids watched as the butcher sliced up some pork shops with the bone in.  They helped make potato wedges in the deli and smelled the live yeast in the bakery.  We had a great visit and the kids were really interested.  A big thank you to the staff from High Prairie's Freson Bros. IGA.
