The G&E Club is lead by two fifth grade teachers, Ms. Erika Luke and Mr. Mitchell Wilson. The club meets each Tuesday afternoon and introduces students to the wonder of the world around them.
Creekside Cares volunteers work with students each week as well. Ms. Luke and Mr. Wilson created the vision and the master plan for this wonderful learning space. Each year the project has continued to grow and improve. Usually each year, volunteers from Fidelity arrive in the early fall and provide hundreds of volunteer hours to work with the educators on improvements. This year it became evident that the enclosure around the chicken coop was too small. W.G. Pearson asked Creekside Cares if we could perhaps assist them.
Then the magic happened! Our volunteers got together and brainstormed on possibilities. We even briefly thought about installing a fence ourselves. Thankfully, we reached out to local professional vendor, Allied Fence Company of Raleigh. Owners Tony and Kelly Crain were very quick to jump on board and graciously worked with us even after we asked for a larger enclosure. Allied worked with school officials to obtain permits, district approvals and created a beautiful plan that would serve the students for a very, very long time.
Allied's staff were professional, efficient and so friendly. Now the dream is a reality. Thank you to everyone who worked tirelessly to provide a wonderful environment for learning! We love serving our community with heart.
