Fremont School www.fremont.lake.k12.il.us Elementary Intermediate Middle District 79 PRESS RELEASE Principal Pam Motsenbocker DATE: Monday, September 21, 2009 Asst. Principal Darin Meyer 28871 N. Fremont Center Road Mundelein, IL 60060 847-566-9384 District initiates landscaping plan Generous donations by the Ammentorp family and the Sims family have started the ball rolling on Fremont District 79’s outdoor beautification plan. A newly formed beautification committee is taking the lead on the district’s landscaping plan. The committee is charged with reviewing the current landscaping plan, discussing ways to implement the plan, the costs involved in landscaping, and a timeframe in completing the process. Residents, nurseries, clubs, and organizations interested in making landscaping donations may contact Mike Moon, director of buildings and grounds, at 847-566-0169 or email him at email@example.com. The Fremont Elementary School staff had a bronze statue of a golfer made in memory of one of their beloved students, Brennan Ammentorp, who enjoyed golfing. Over the summer, the Ammentorp family paid to have bushes and perennials planted around the statue, that is now located in front of the elementary school. Bill and Anji Sims’ family nursery, Rolling Hills Nursery of Prairie View, provided shrubbery to enhance the cafeteria of a PTO sponsored staff luncheon recently. The maintenance department then planted the donations -- cypress mop, hydrangeas, switch grass and evergreen trees -- around newly installed signage that directs parents into the elementary and intermediate school frontage road as well as around an intermediate school sign. Daisies and rose bushes also soften the exterior of the transportation building. “Landscaping makes a building look occupied,” commented Bill Sims. “It spruces up a building and makes it look alive and vibrant,” he said. Fremont Middle School is a sixth through eighth grade school serving 723 students living in the communities of Mundelein, Wauconda, Hawthorn Woods, Grayslake, Ivanhoe, Round Lake, Round Lake Park, Long Grove and Libertyville.
