Killeen ISD prepares to educate more students in 2016-17 Killeen Daily Herald

More books will be purchased and more teachers will be needed as the Killeen Independent School District is expected to enroll about 43,950 students in the upcoming school year. The growth equates to nearly 525 additional students compared to the district’s 2015-2016 peak enrollment numbers. Killeen ISD has added about 1,600 students in the past two years. The overall increase in students served means more staff is needed to teach. Killeen ISD had 6,397 during the 2015-2016 academic year; and the district will add 64 teaching positions in the upcoming school year. “As a district, we are excited to welcome our students, staff and families back to the 2016-2017 school year,” Superintendent John Craft said. “The district remains committed to providing exceptional educational opportunities to ensure all students are successful, and we appreciate the continued support of our staff, parents and community, as providing the best education possible to our students is truly a team effort.”

New campus

Kindergarten students read books before the day starts at Clarke Elementary School at Fort Hood. School starts Aug. 22 in Killeen ISD.

By Lauren Dodd

This year the Early College High School will expand to include 300 incoming freshmen, 150 new sophomores and the returning sophomores from last year totaling about 600 students.

The campus will be housed at the former Smith Middle School at 51000 Tank Destroyer Boulevard on Fort Hood Army Base. Also, the Smith and Audie Murphy middle school campuses have been consolidated this year to provide greater efficiencies and to allow for the expansion of educational opportunities to students. The district will open the doors of its new Early College High School campus Aug. 22, which is the first day of school across the district. The district hired three additional

administrative professionals: • Steven Hudson — Executive Director for Elementary Schools • Nancy Duran — Executive Director of Career and Technology • Randall Hugg — Executive Director for Athletics The district also hired five principals: • Katy Bohannon — Iduma Elementary • Connie Morris — Cedar Valley Elementary • Wendy Haider — Nolanville Elementary

• Peter Hartley — Meadows Elementary • Jorge Soldevila — Liberty Hill Middle School “We are very proud to serve and educate our students and their families and we look forward to a great start to the school year,” Craft said. “Educating America’s children is our core business and I am proud to be able to serve alongside a great team of KISD educators who remain dedicated to our mission.” ldodd@kdhnews.com | 254-501-7568

Killeen’s Early College High School expands into new building By Brady Keane Killeen Daily Herald

With one successful year in the books, Killeen Independent School District’s Early College High School is preparing for more change. The program, which allows students to earn an associate’s degree and high school diploma simultaneously through a partnership with Central Texas College and Texas A&M University-Central Texas, began last school year with 150 ninth-grade students contained in a “freshman campus” in a CTC hallway. The students were selected from a lottery of 463 applicants from Killeen, Nolanville, Fort Hood and Harker Heights. “We are tearing down stereotypical cliches of the four main high schools and forging new friendships and peer groups,” Killeen ISD wrote in its January campus improvement plan. “ECHS is a great representation of our diverse community.” In the coming school year, a planned 600 freshman and sophomore students will be moved to the current Smith Middle School at Fort Hood. The plan is for the school’s first class of freshmen to return to the CTC facility as juniors. CTC will then host ECHS juniors and seniors, while the Smith campus will be the home of freshmen and sophomores in the program. “The early college high school concept is just one innovative approach embraced by Texas school systems to offer students an avenue for success,” Commissioner of Education Mike Morath said in an April release. “With more than 150 campuses, Texas con-

tinues to be a national ECHS leader in providing high school students with college credit while saving families money.” Morath announced the approval of 16 new ECHS designations in Texas for the 2016-2017 school year, as the program continues to grow both in Killeen and across the state. Students in the first year of ECHS in Killeen saw success across the board, as PSAT scores came in 30 points above the national average. On the state’s standardized tests — the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness — 92 percent of students passed the English test, 98 percent passed the alge-

bra and 100 percent of ECHS students passed the biology. While undergoing a rigorous course load — all classes or pre-AP, AP and dual credit — the students also created a student council, school newscast, yearbook, and participated in intramural sports, dance, art, robotics and anime. “We created a climate where they can be successful, where all want to succeed,” Principal Kathleen Burke said at the end of the 2015-2016 school year. In addition to the extracurricular activities, students compiled more 1,200 community service hours by conducting food drives, a coat drive, raising money for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,

breast cancer awareness and the KISD Education Foundation. The ECHS is also a 1:1 technology school in Killeen, meaning that all students are given a MacBook Pro once they are admitted to the program and school begins. There is no cost to the students to attend. Killeen ISD covers tuition, fees and required textbooks to the extent those charges are not waived by CTC. The first day of school for KISD for the 2016-2017 year is Aug. 22. KISD Public Information specialist Todd Martin contributed to this report. bkeane@kdhnews.com | 254-501-7555

Killeen students must follow dress code by angela bonilla killeen daily herald

With school starting soon, many parents and students are advised to consult their respective school’s dress code for what is considered appropriate. The standard district policy is online, but some schools in the district have adopted their own standards. Throughout the district, students are required to be dressed and groomed in a clean and neat manner that does not present a health or safety hazard to themselves or others, according to the policy. Students who violate the dress code will be advised by the campus administrator and will be given the opportunity to comply. While there are many forms of opportunities to comply, the most common is for students to call their parents for a change of clothes. Those students who fail to comply or repeat to violate the dress code will be subject to disciplinary action. The district prohibits clothing with pictures, emblems and writing that are lewd, offensive, vulgar or obscure. Also prohibited is clothing that advertises or depict tobacco products, alcoholic beverage, drugs or any other prohibited substance.

priately sized and may not be extend beyond the student’s fingertips when worn outside of pants or skirt. • Dresses, skirts, and shorts are to be no shorter than 4 inches above the top of the knee, and must allow students to walk, stoop, kneel, and sit with modesty. • “Sagging” is not permitted. • Apparel designed for reaction such as tank tops is not acceptable. Tank tops and similar apparel may be worn by pre-K to second-grade students. • Tight clothing, accessories that draw attention are prohibited including tank tops, halter tops, etc. Students shall wear tops that cover the upper body, shoulders, and beyond the midriff leaving no exposed skin. • Types of apparel including jewelry, trademark, symbol, and any other items or manner of grooming with any attribute indicates or implies gang membership or affiliation are prohibited. • Hair must be neat, clean, and well groomed.

Renovations, new parking lots welcome back Cove students and staff SPECIAL TO THE HERALD

COPPERAS COVE — Copperas Cove Independent School District students and staff head into the new school year with updated facilities top to bottom outfitted with the latest in technology. Major renovation projects have occurred over the summer, with several schools getting new roofs and parking lots and two schools seeing improvements in their heating and air conditioning systems. The majority of the work was done at Copperas Cove High School where CCISD’s maintenance department replaced coils on several HVAC units to keep them operational. In addition, they will do some work in the choir room to provide the choir a more user-friendly environment. The choir room was renovated and a large portion of the high school roof that was damaged during the hail storms of 2014 was replaced. Work was done on all three parking lots, said Rick Kirkpatrick, deputy superintendent of transportation and student services. “The student parking lot behind the high school had several patches done where the pavement was beginning to fail followed by a complete chip seal of the entire parking lot. The faculty lot in front of the high school had some drainage work done and also received a chip seal. The student lot in front of the gym was also fog sealed to ensure an additional 10 to 12 years of life,” Kirkpatrick said. Copperas Cove Junior High School and Martin Walker Elementary School also got new roofs this summer. Martin Walker had old carpet removed and replaced with tile. New storage cabinets were installed. Fairview/Miss Jewell Elementary received an electrical upgrade. “The electrical system that was replaced is original to the building and was installed in 1958,” Kirkpatrick said. The S.C. Lee Junior High gym floor was sanded to bare wood, repainted and resealed. “The floors had not been redone since the school opened in 1996,” Kirkpatrick said. “You will be amazed at the new look with this work is completed.”

Texas requires school children to be immunized against diseases By Gloria Heredia Killeen Daily Herald

While school supplies and new clothes are top priorities for back-to-school, a hospital or clinic visit might be a good idea if you want to get your kids enrolled. The state of Texas mandates children attending public schools to be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, varicella, meningococcal and hepatitis A. According to Killeen’s ISD website, students can be prohibited from attending classes until their immunization records are brought into compliance. Fortunately, for the past 20 years, the Wellness Department at Metroplex Hospital has been giving free immunizations for low-income children who need certain vaccines to get enrolled. Erin Spencer, public relations representative for Metroplex, said that every year they try to accommodate as many kids as possible to have their

shots current. “We do an event every year called KidsFest where we give back-to-school immunizations for students,” Spencer said. “We do our best to try to plan for everything. It’s better to get there in early.” KidsFest will be Aug. 14 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Killeen Civic and Conference Center. An estimated 1,000 attendees have participated in the past and over 500 vaccines were administered last year. Vaccines are first-come, first-served, and proper documentation is needed. Parents are asked to bring their child’s shot record or letter from the school nurse for these services. Those with CHIP, Medicaid, who have no insurance or are underinsured, qualify for free immunizations. Vaccines aren’t just for kids. The state also requires incoming college students to receive the meningitis vaccine (MCV4) in order to register for classes. For more information regarding the state immunization requirements, go to http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/immunize or your school’s website.

Pledge to pack a healthier lunchbox as new school year begins Family Features

If good eating habits have fallen by the wayside during the summer break, you can kick off this school year right by pledging to guide your family toward healthier lunches. “Back to school is a great time for families to make a healthy resolution they can carry on through the duration of the school year,” said Trish James, vice president, Produce for Kids. “As a mom of two boys, I understand the challenges parents face when packing a healthy, nutritious lunch for their children and for themselves. The Power Your Lunchbox Pledge was designed to help families tackle this universal challenge.” The initiative gives parents tools and tips – such as this time-saving makeahead pizza pocket recipe – to achieve a great start for back to school, while giving back to children in need. Every online pledge results in a $1 donation to Feeding America programs that support families and children.

Find more creative ideas and join the discussion on Instagram and Twitter using #PowerYourLunchbox, and learn more about the program and its sponsors at poweryourlunchbox.com.

Scrambled eggs baked in muffin tins make mornings easier some of that luscious fat, flavor, and color from the yolk and then load up on serious-protein egg whites. Use whatever veggies you have on hand, and don’t be shy about loading up — even my two pickiest kiddos love these little guys! Make several flavors when you find eggs on sale, and you’ll have a veritable morning buffet of protein for weeks. No last minute drivethrus to stave off the hunger on the way to work.

By MELISSA D’ARABIAN The Associated Press

When it comes to healthy eating, good intentions and willpower can only take us so far. That’s why I believe strongly in making the healthy choice the easy choice, especially when it comes to morning decisions. Spending a little time to set myself up for success makes a huge difference in my ability to stick to my healthy living plans. For instance, I set out my workout clothes the night before, so rolling out of bed and into them is a no-brainer. Should the extra 15-seconds that it would take for me to open the dresser drawer to grab my exercise clothes be the thing that derails an entire workout? Perhaps not. But alas it does. For me, anyway. Same thing can happen when it comes to food. When I’m hungry and in a rush, I’m far more likely to grab just anything that will fill my belly. But I’ll absolutely eat a healthy protein-filled breakfast if it’s all prepped and ready

to go. In fact, my whole family eats better when I invest a little time cooking and stocking my freezer with my own version of “fast food.” One of our favorites is the morning egg muffin, which is essentially scrambled eggs baked up in muffin tins. I make a dozen or two on weekends to keep in the freezer and in less than two microwave minutes, we have a weekday breakfast that is chock-full of filling protein. My secret: I use two eggs to get

BAKE-AHEAD MORNING EGG CUPS

1 link turkey Italian sausage, about 3 ounces, crumbled ½ red pepper, chopped 2 tablespoons chopped onion 1 tablespoons flour (all purpose or rice flour both work) 1½ cups baby spinach, washed 2 eggs ¾ cup egg whites (about 7 egg whites) ¼ cup lowfat milk ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a saute pan, cook the sausage over medium high heat until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the pepper and chopped onion and cook until vegetables begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with the flour and stir in. Chop the spinach and stir into the pan, and cook another minute for spinach to wilt. Remove from heat and allow to cool a few minutes. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites and milk until pale yellow and smooth. Stir in the sausage mixture and cheese. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick spray. Spoon the mixture into the tin. Bake until eggs are firm but not dry, about 15 minutes. Let cool in the muffin tins for 10 minutes before removing and allowing to cool on a baking rack. Eat right away, or freeze in a resealable freezer bag. Label well!

Back-to-school sales tax holiday set for Aug. 5-7 By Nealie Sanchez Killeen Daily Herald

Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced the state’s 17th annual sales tax holiday will take place Aug. 5-7. During the designated weekend, parents can buy back-to-school clothing and supplies for their kiddos, tax free. The law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend, according to the release. This year, shoppers will save an estimated $92 million in state and local sales taxes during the sales tax holiday. The tax holiday weekend has been an annual event since 1999. “As families all over our state prepare to send their children back to school, we hope folks take advantage of this opportunity to get the supplies they need and save some money in the process,” Hegar said on the comptroller’s website. “As the father of three young children, I know how these expenses can add up. This event provides Texas families with some relief from state and local sales taxes,” he said. Exceptions to the tax free weekend include “special use clothing,” items “reasonably defined as luggage” and any item over $100.

The release defines special-use clothing as specialized sports gear that cannot normally be worn. These are items such as cleats and football pads however other athletic clothing such as

tennis shoes, jogging suits, and swimsuits will be tax free. While backpacks priced under $100 are tax free, luggage, briefcases, gym bags, computer bags, purses, and

framed backpacks will not be. Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax-free can be found on the Comptroller’s website at TexasTaxHoliday.org.

Savings can add up if you shop smart during back-to-school sales By Jennise Colin-Ventura Killeen Daily Herald

Back-to-school shopping is now in session. This could potentially be the most dreaded tasks that parents endure. That means spending lots of time and money on kids’ clothes and school supplies or does it? Here are some tips on how to save money while making most of your school shopping. School Supplies: The best stores to get savings on school supplies are Office Max, Walgreens, H-E-B, WalMart, The Dollar Tree and Target. Office Max, H-E-B, Target and Walgreens offer coupons that you can use in addition to their BTS sales. Office Max, Wal-Mart and Target offer price matches, so if you see a local store offering a lower price on the exact item and you are closer to any of these three stores, you can present the sales flier or online price and get the lowest prices. Walgreens is my upmost favorite store to buy these supplies because not only can use store and

manufacturer coupons, but if you are active or retired military, you can get an additional 15 percent off when you show your military ID. This military

discount is offered every Saturday at Copperas Cove, Killeen, Harker Heights and Belton locations. Clothes: Sign up for emails from

clothing websites such as Old Navy, Crazy 8s, American Eagle, JCPenney’s and other stores that you and your kid(s) like. You will receive email coupons to use in the stores. Right now, stores are marking down their summer collections now to make room for school clothes. The heat here in Texas doesn’t cool down until October, so buying summer clothes now at a discounted price is very favorable to your wallet. If you like to plan ahead and save more money, you can even buy summer sale clothes in bigger sizes for the next summer. If you prefer not to get inundated with emails, you can also check out the websites Coupon Cabin and RetailMeNot. Both are coupon database websites for easy shopping online and in store. Both of these websites have smartphone apps that you can use as well. The main perk about these apps is there is no printing or clipping coupons. If you are shopping in a particular store, you can type the name of the store and Coupon Cabin or Retail-


2016 Back to School 1 | 21

MeNot will provide all the available coupons for that store. It will let you know if the coupons are online only, for shopping inside the store or both. RetailMeNot will also alert you, if you are driving or walking by a store, of the available coupons nearby. It’s like a best friend telling you there’s a coupon available while you shop. Coupon Cabin not only searches for coupons, but it also rewards you for shopping while using a Coupon Cabin store code. A percentage of your

purchases will be rewarded to you via check. Visit Coupon Cabin at http:// goo.gl/Aaq9N3 and RetailMeNot at https://www.retailmenot.com. College Necessities: If you are shopping for a college student and need dorm décor and furniture, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kohls and Target offers a wide variety of specials. Again, sign up for their emails on their websites, “Like” them on Facebook and get phone text alerts, if possible. These particular stores offer store coupons

that are usually combinable with other coupons, such as manufacturer and specialized discounted coupons (use a percent off with a dollar off coupon). For more information on using multiple coupons, go to their websites, call the store or call corporate for details. These stores allow multiple coupons per item (even on select sale items) so you can really save money at these stores. To receive text message offers: For Kohls, text SAVE to 56457. Target: text OFFERS to 827438. Go to the Bed,

Bath & Beyond website to sign up for text message offers. If you need to stock up on laundry detergent and personal care, Walgreens, Target and CVS offer the best savings. You can combine store coupons (from their website and store circulars) with manufacturer coupons from the Sunday newspaper. Sign up to be a Healthy Rewards Member at Walgreens and Extra Care Card member from CVS to get better savings.

New (school) year, new you: Make family resolutions that stick Family Features

Getty Images | Family features

Forget Jan. 1. Parents know the real new year begins when you can smell the fresh pink erasers and hear the clatter of brand new pencils on stillsmooth notebook covers. Even if you don’t have kids in school, the end of summer and the beginning of fall is a great time to reassess, realign, hit the restart button and make resolutions that will help carry your family smoothly through until next summer – or at least until the holidays. Here are some tips from parents about resolutions they’ve made for the coming school year:

Learn to love mornings

My Life and Kids blogger Anna Luther said she used to hate mornings. “It was a disaster,” she said. “There was a lot of yelling, a lot of missing socks, a lot of arguments about eating a good breakfast — it was just not the way to start a productive, happy day.” Luther decided to turn the first — and worst — hour of her day into one of the best by waking up earlier, exercising and turning on music. Luther also changed the way she looked at breakfast. “It doesn’t have to be from scratch,” she said, “but it does have to have protein — and be fast. We love frozen breakfast burritos, for example.”

Empower the kids

Luther said that another thing that made mornings exhausting was that she tried to do everything herself, from finding socks and brushing hair to heating up healthy breakfasts. But kids

team — and they’re on yours. Denney and her husband, Brett, chose a family motto for the school year so that everyone on their family team knows what they’re working toward. As their motto, the Denneys chose, “Work hard and be nice.” It’s simple, succinct and sums up what they want for their family.

Fuel up with real food

are eager to help, she said. Just like adults, they feel empowered when they can do things for themselves. Luther decided to empower her kids and simplify her life at the same time by creating “Get Ready Buckets,” which hold everything they need to get moving in the morning, from hairbrushes to socks. That same message of empowerment can simplify and improve other stressful times of day. Do the kids walk in the door hungry and cranky and leave you feeling the same way? Stock the freezer with hearty snacks that kids can heat up on their own.

Appreciate others

Blogger Kristyn Merkley of Lil’ Luna, has resolved to show the teachers in her life how much she and her family appreciate them. “Our teachers put so much time and effort into their jobs,” Merkley said, “and we’re so grateful for that.” While she usually gives teachers

a gift card at the end of the year, she doesn’t wait until then to send notes and emails with a simple, “Thank you.” She also makes sure to say thanks in person — and in front of her kids.

Make fun a priority

There are plenty of must-dos on your list every day, but is fun one of them? Merkley said it should be, and she’s making family fun a resolution this school year. She collects activities on her blog that kids and adults can do together and plans family fun nights around them. “When we laugh and make things and learn things together,” she said, “we’re making memories. I want my kids to remember their childhoods as more than just getting to school on time and cleaning their rooms.”

Be a team

Kristy Denney, of the Boys Ahoy blog, is raising three wild boys, as she calls them. But even the wildest of kids wants to know that you’re on their

Kids have to eat, and most insist on eating three or more times a day. Denney said she loves to cook from scratch, but she doesn’t want time in the kitchen to keep her away from her family. So, this year, she’s resolving to focus on what’s important: real ingredients. “Sometimes I’ll buy the ingredients myself to cook from scratch and sometimes I’ll look for foods I recognize on the label,” she said. “When I pick up El Monterey Signature Burritos, I see ingredients like fresh-baked tortillas, real cheddar cheese — foods I would buy anyway for my family, so I feel great about that.”

Make snacks work hard

Jess Kielman, who writes the blog Mom 4 Real, said that snacking can sometimes be a problem in her house. Kids (and adults) sometimes snack because they’re bored — or just out of habit, so she’s reining in snack time and making snacks work just as hard as meals. “Protein and real food — that’s what I’m going to look for in afternoon snacks,” she said. “Something that fills the kids up and gets them ready to get back out the door and play, or buckle down and do their homework.”
