Good Health Habits [[image - black & white photograph of pupils at the school's Eaglin Grocery Store]] Eaglin's Grocery Store We went to the Safeway Store on Nichols Avenue, Southeast. We say many fruits and vegetables, meats and dairy products. We made Eaglin's Grocery Store after we took our trip. We like our store. We hope you like it, too. This store helps us learn what foods to buy for good health. Our store is in Room 101 at Birney School. We would like to have you come visit us sometime. Kenneth Franklin Grade 2B H.
