"New Landscaping Beautifies Winter Gardens"
Winter Gardens Gets a Facelift! Winter Gardens was fortunate to receive some much-needed beautification to the front of the school. Michael Molezion worked tirelessly with his crew to completely redo the landscaping at the entrance to the school. Parents, staff and students are all really excited about the new look. “We’re really grateful to Michael and the crew for the wonderful job they’ve done. They had some great ideas for us in regards to the type of plants and which ones would be best for our school site”, said Mrs. Meltzer, principal. The plants include two new trees, groundcover, ivy, and a succulent garden. Winter Gardens would like to thank Mr. Molezion and the rest of the team, who work under the direction of Johnny Adargas, for making Winter Gardens a more pleasing place to work and learn.
