This afternoon Ms. Rachael Benedict from the Piedmont Electric Membership Corporation visited CGS. She was here to award our Grizzlies one of Piedmont Electric’s Bright Ideas Grants. The almost $2,000 grant will be used to fund a new school garden located between the breezeway and cafeteria.

Plans for the garden include raised garden beds, weather station, pollinator area, and other interesting ‘zones’ for our students to learn in and enjoy. We hope this will be an area that K-12 can employ as they gain a deeper understanding of science, sustainability, and the environment.

We are very excited about this new opportunity. Make sure you keep an eye on that area for improvements coming soon!
