General Myer Elementary School

Pam Sherod’s fifth grade class went to the commissary on April 11. Robert Oates, store administrator, gave the students a tour of the produce and meat departments. The students learned about color blocks, product locator numbers, and where some fruits and vegetables are purchased.

Students also learned that the temperature in the commissary is always cool to help keep the produce fresh.

In the meat department, the class learned what the different color trays mean and were excited to see a cow’s heart. They thank Oates and the commissary for taking time for the visit. The other fifth grade classes also went to the commissary last month.
