Cypress Elementary Hosts a Garden Dedication!
This past Thursday, February 25th, Fontana Unified School District’s Cypress Elementary School hosted a garden dedication to celebrate the completion of their water-wise school garden.
Cypress Elementary Assistant Principal Mr. Adam Anderson speaks in front of students and parents.
The garden was constructed as part of IEUA’s water-wise Garden In Every School® Program, which is an assisted grant to install a water-wise garden on campus that educates students on the importance of efficient water usage.
On behalf of the Inland Empire Utilities Agency Board of Directors and the Fontana Water Company, Katie Plank and Patrick Soto, presented Principal Dr. Rosario Gomez and Assistant Principal Mr. Adam Anderson a certificate of completion at the dedication ceremony.

The Cypress Elementary garden features six planter boxes growing plants such as parsley and succulents. The planter box for the 2nd graders even features a turtle!
Congratulations to Cypress Elementary for a job well done and for bringing and an outdoor classroom to life!
We hope your garden will continue to flourish and inspire water use efficiency!
