GARDENING TIPS FOR APRIL

Mulch - If possible, buy Bagged Mulch. Bagging helps eliminate a great many pests that die from various causes while in the bag. When you buy ‘loose’ mulch that is trucked to your home, you are also buying ants, roaches, termites, etc… Spend a little more on bagged material and save lots of future pest problems. Keep your mulch at least 4” - 6” below the top of your homes exposed foundation edge/side. This will aid in minimizing pests in your home and allow for quick and accurate termite inspections. Shrubs, Flowers and groundcovers - Trim all shrubs/plants at least 12” - 18” back from your home. Do your best to create a plant free zone that is 18” - 24” wide around your home. The exception is your lawn - it can grow up next to the slab as long as you keep it 4” - 6” below the top of the slab. The most conducive to termite infestation are groundcover plantings, growing high against your homes exterior or (especially) ivy that grows on your walls. Trees - Spray your trees at least twice annually. The spring spray eliminates overwintering pests and fungi while preparing trees to resist the pest onslaught of summer with residual pesticides. The fall spray also kills pests from the summer, prevents most fungi from occurring over the winter and puts your valuable asset off to a healthy winter’s dormancy. Lawn - Spring is the perfect time to do a fungicide treatment to stop brown patch in its tracks along with other fungi. If your lawn is thin and weak in some areas, here are some important fundamentals: a) lawn aeration b) fertilization c) weed control. Most important is proper watering • Water once per week (unless you get a 1/2” rain or more - then do not water.) • Water heavily (1” - 2”) for total lawn coverage. • In severe drought, water every 5th day. • Water from 5 AM to 7 AM in the morning - NOT AT NIGHT. • A heavy deep weekly watering makes the turf grow deeper, stronger and more drought resistant roots. • Less watering also saves you money!!

Bicycle riders are operators of vehicles and have all the rights and responsibilities as the operators of other vehicles. It is important that all roadway users know and obey the laws that keep us all safe.

Seven Basic Laws pertaining to all cyclists: 1. One rider per saddle - You can’t take a friend riding unless you have a bicycle built for two (tandem) or a child seat or trailer for the young ones. Riding on the handlebars, top bars or pegs, is not allowed. 2. Ride as far to the right as practicable, in the same direction as other traffic. This is the law that causes the most confusion. “Practicable” does not mean “possible.” Stay out of the gutter; leave yourself enough room to avoid hazards including parked cars with open doors. A cyclist may ride in the middle of a lane (take the lane) that is 4 feet wide or is too narrow to safely share with a motor vehicle. Cyclists may ride tow abreast when taking a lane on a multi-lane roadway. Cyclist may ride two abreast but may not impede the normal and reasonable flow of traffic. A cyclist should ride in the proper lane to make a turn or otherwise negotiate an intersection. A cyclist may ride to the left side on a one-way roadway. 3. One hand on the handlebars, but two are safer. Riding with “no hands” is fancy, but just one small rock or a pothole can make your front wheel swerve and cause a crash. 4. Obey all traffic signs and signals. You must stop and yield just as the motor vehicles do. Complaints about cyclists running stop signs and red lights are the ones we most frequently hear from motorists. 5. Must have a white light in the front and a red rear reflector or red light to ride when it’s dark. Reflectors are not enough. You must have a headlight that can be seen from 500 feet. This is primarily so you will be seen, but also to help you see.

6. Must have effective brakes capable of making a braked wheel skid. If only one brake wheel to avoid pitching the rider over the handlebars. 7. Use hand and arm signals. Stopping or slowing, left turn and right turns must all be signaled. Texas allows pointing to the right to signal a right turn. The stopping signal is especially important when riding in a group of cyclists

Place enough rocks or pebbles in the bottom of the can to form a single layer. Add enough potting soil to fill the can two-thirds full. Remove potted herb from its container and transplant into the can. Fill edges with remaining potting soil, gently pat down so that plant is firmly in the can but not compacted so much that it’s too tight. Place can on a plate (to catch any water drainage) and add some water to the newly planted herbs.

MANAGING MORNING MADNESS

Are your mornings rushed, chaotic and disorganized? Is everyone grumpy and short-tempered as you get up and out the door in the morning? This kind of morning can make your weekdays stressful and unpleasant. If you want to eliminate the madness and improve your morning routine, then it’s time to get control, make some changes and make your mornings a good start to wonderful days! To create a peaceful, enjoyable morning routine, follow these steps: • Revamp your routines. Take a good look at your morning patterns and identify those things that cause stress. Pinpointing the exact problems is the first step to making productive changes. • Start your morning - at night! A great way to smooth out your morning is to prepare as much as you can the night before. This means choosing the day’s clothing, packing lunches, gathering homework, signing permission slips, filling backpacks and even setting the table for breakfast. • Post a calendar. Buy the biggest wall calendar you can find and hang it in a central location. Write down events and appointments for everyone on this calendar. • Create a drop box for each person. Have a labeled box near the door for each family member. Use this to store shoes, keys, backpacks, coats and anything else that goes out the door with you in the morning.

• Use a morning list. Create a poster-sized list of the standard morning activities, listed in order, to be done. Add a few specific time goals, such as “breakfast done by 7:30.” Tape this poster on the wall near your monthly calendar or on the front of your refrigerator. • Check out sleep time. Without adequate sleep, a child won’t be well rested. A sleep-deprived child will move more slowly and won’t be able to follow a morning routine successfully. Make sure your child has an early, set bedtime. • Don’t sleep in on the weekends. Letting your child sleep late on weekends is like giving him jet lag every week. Your child’s bedtime should stay consistent all 7 days of the week. • Get up earlier. It may help to get everyone up fifteen minutes earlier. A sneaky way to do this is to set all your clocks ahead by fifteen minutes. • Avoid anger. Yelling at a dawdling child to hurry up usually brings the opposite result - the child becomes even more stressed, fumbles, makes mistakes and loses focus. Your job is just to offer gentle reminders for the child to stay on schedule, according to the morning chart. • Turn off the TV. Turn on the music. Turn the television off and play upbeat music instead. A good beat can wake up sleepy kids and keep things moving along productively. • Fix problems with a family meeting. If problems persist, take the time to sit down with your children and talk about it. Let everyone have a turn talking and then work to arrive at solutions that will benefit everyone. • Praise successes. Remember, your words of praise will encourage your children to cooperate with you and will keep everyone feeling good about their progress. A pleasant attitude funnels down from the top, and if you can keep a smile on your face it’s likely that everyone will be happier and mornings will become a great start to a wonderful day.

HISTORY OF EARTH DAY

Earth Day, April 22nd, each year marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, proposed the first nationwide environmental protest “to shake up the political establishment and force this issue onto the national agenda.” “It was a gamble,” he recalls, “but it worked.” At the time, Americans were slurping leaded gas through massive V8 sedans. Industry belched out smoke and sludge with little fear of legal consequences or bad press. Air pollution was commonly accepted as the smell of prosperity. Environment was a word that appeared more often in spelling bees than on the evening news. Earth Day 1970 turned that all around. On April 22nd, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment. Denis Hayes, the national coordinator and his youthful staff, organized massive coast-to-coast rallies. Thousands of colleges and universities organized protests against the deterioration of the environment. Groups that had been fighting against oil spills, polluting factories and power plants, raw sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, freeways, the loss of wilderness and the extinction of wildlife, suddenly realized they shared common values.

8

Earth Day 1970 achieved a rare political alignment, enlisting support from Republicans and Democrats, rich and poor, city slickers and farmers, tycoons and labor leaders. The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species acts. Sen. Nelson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor given to civilians in the United States for his role as Earth Day founder. As 1990 approached, a group of environmental leaders asked Denis Hayes to organize another big campaign. This time, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting the status of environmental issues on to the world stage. Earth Day 1990 gave a huge boost to recycling efforts worldwide and helped pave the way for the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. As the millennium approached, Hayes agreed to spearhead another campaign, this time focused on global warming and a push for clean energy. Earth Day 2000 combined the big-picture feistiness of the first Earth Day with the international grassroots activism of Earth Day 1990. For 2000, Earth Day had the Internet to help link activists around the world. By the time Earth Day rolled around, 5,000 environmental groups around the world were on board, reaching out to hundreds of millions of people in a record 184 countries. Events varied: A talking drum chain traveled from village to village in Gabon, Africa, for example, while hundreds of thousands of people gathered on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., USA. Earth Day 2000 sent the message loud and clear that citizens the world ‘round wanted quick and decisive action on clean energy. Now, the fight for a clean environment continues. We invite you to be a part of this history and a part of Earth Day. Discover energy you didn’t even know you had. Feel it rumble through the grass roots under your feet and the technology at your fingertips. Channel it into building a clean, healthy, diverse world for generations to come. www.earthday.net

KATY ISD OUTPERFORMS STATE ON STAAR TEST

Test scores released by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) from the 2012 State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) accountability test for grades 3-8 show that Katy ISD outperformed the state in every grade level assessment. The district also exceeded the state passing rate by an average of 13 points. “While we are very pleased that our students outperformed the state, that is not our only goal,” says Katy ISD Superintendent, Alton Frailey. “While we will remain competitive with our peer districts within the state accountability system, our primary objective is to provide each student high quality and comprehensive learning experiences.” The STAAR test assesses student performance based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) learning objectives developed by the TEA. Because students took the STAAR test for the first time in 2012, test scores will not count in any way toward a student’s 2012 - 2013 state testing results, regardless if they passed or failed the test. The TEA is currently in the process of developing a new accountability system for the 2013 - 2014 school year. Additionally, the TEA will not be assigning accreditation status to school districts in 2012 - 2013. During the next two weeks, parents will receive their child’s Confidential Student Report, which provides a summary of how their child performed. Because the STAAR assessments are new and more rigorous than past TAKS assessments, many parents may see test scores that differ from previous TAKS test results.

“The change in scores is not a reflection of the education that students receive as we continue to provide high-quality instruction that students and parents expect in Katy ISD,” says Katy ISD’s Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Christine Caskey. “Not only is STAAR more rigorous than TAKS, this was the first time students saw the format of the new test. As students and teachers become more familiar with STAAR, we anticipate that future scores will improve.” Students who participate in the 2013 spring administration of STAAR will receive a new Confidential Student Report near the end of the 2013 school year. The 2013 spring administration of the STAAR will be the first set of test results that will count toward a student’s state testing performance.

COTHA, Church of the Holy Apostles Welcomes Antoinette Chew as Children’s Pastor

As of Sunday, March 17th, Mrs. Antoinette Chew became the Children’s Pastor at COTHA. Her objective is to provide an environment where children are encouraged to develop their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. She will teach them about the Bible and God, while nurturing their spiritual gifts. Her responsibilities include, but are not limited to, acquiring, preparing and organizing curriculum for each age level K- 5th grade. She will create environments to facilitate learning and encourage spiritual growth. She will plan and oversee any event or special activity involving the COTHA kids and will engage their families by expanding spiritual influence outside of COTHA.    Mrs. Antoinette Chew is a proud wife and mother to three children ages 7, 10 and 15. A graduate of Texas State University, Mrs. Chew was raised in New Jersey, but has been a Texan since 1993.    Mrs. Chew has been in the Christian community since birth and been involved with Christian children’s programs since 1996. She worked as St. Johns Children’s Choir Director, St. Michaels Children’s Choir Director, Children’s Ministry Coordinator and most recently an elementary and early childhood music teacher. Mrs. Chew has assisted with VBS at various churches and attended pastoral conferences in order to stay current with emerging curriculums and trends. One of her more recent children’s programs doubled in size, in part by involving her rich history in the performing arts.    “It is my greatest joy to teach children of all ages. I love fostering the love of music and theatre in my students all for the glory of God,” Chew said. “I am thrilled to join the COTHA family. This is the perfect environment to work with children from all walks of life.” This violin playing soprano singing Christian teacher says she is not afraid of breaking new ground to create engaging programs for children of all ages.
