Cox’s Creek Elementary School (CCES) has found some new heroes – Lowe’s Heroes to be specific.
CCES has been embraced by the Bardstown Lowe’s store for a volunteer program that matches a team of local employee volunteers with a local nonprofit organization or K-12 public school. Each Lowe’s store generally can pick one project per year for the program.
With visions of vegetable and flower gardens all around the school dancing in her head, CCES second- and third-grade teacher Kathy Miller’s pet project fit the bill to receive assistance.
As many as 20 Lowe’s employees along with CCES parents, students and staff members spread out around the school June 8 and 9 to tackle five specific work areas.
Work included installation of a fish pond surrounded by plants and flowers near the playground area behind the school; new landscaping around the main sign out front; flowers, trees and shrubbery near the front entrance; vegetable plots outside the cafeteria area; and a complete redo of the landscaping on the school’s north side.
