Once the host families and students are matched, Ayusa stays involved by monthly contacts with the families, students and quarterly contacts with the schools. Ayusa coordinators also handle the host family orientations and the student orientations. Group activities, such as community service and seeing things with the group of exchange students is also arrange throughout their academic year. With the current school year quickly coming to an end Ayusa’s local staff is busy looking for families for students for the 2012-2013 school year. Many families are needed and with the schools having deadlines and limits for foreign exchange students the earlier the better. It also gives the families and students time to get to know each other via skype, facebook, etc. while waiting for their year abroad to start.

IMPORTANT DATES April - No Holidays/Early Dismissals

MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINDENDANT

February 15, 2013   Dear Friends: As the 83rd Texas Legislature entered its sixth week of session, I traveled to Austin to attend two important hearings that will impact the future of CFISD students and teachers.   I attended both the Senate Education Committee and House Committee on Public Education hearings and walked out of both meetings with an optimistic outlook for positive change in public education.   Chaired by local Sen. Dan Patrick, the Senate Education Committee hearing focused on SB 3, a graduation plan bill authored by Sen. Patrick. If passed, this bill will create a new foundation program for high school graduation comprised of 11.5 elective credits and 14.5 specified credits. Additionally, students can earn endorsements in one of four areas (business/industry, arts/ humanities, STEM or “distinguished” by completing further requirements).   The goal of SB 3 is to better prepare students for post-secondary opportunities in light of the changing economic and business needs. A panel

Stone Gate


of superintendents did an excellent job reinforcing flexible academic plans for all students.   The House Committee on Public Education, chaired by Rep. Jimmie Don Aycock, held its first meeting February 13th. This initial hearing included testimony by Education Commissioner Michael Williams, who provided information on key priorities -maintaining high expectations amid successful results, the importance of the 4x4 graduation plan and closing the achievement gap.   The next day, we had the opportunity to hear directly from Sen. Patrick and Rep. Aycock at the Texas School Alliance meeting, where I and other superintendents discussed our hopes for the 83rd session. The tone of this meeting matched the positive feel of both hearings.   While we know that the legislative climate can change on a whim, we are optimistic that during this session meaningful change will occur in the areas of high school graduation programs, high-stakes testing and the accountability system.   I look forward to more trips to the State Capitol throughout this session to ensure that CFISD’s interests are protected and to communicating our progress back to you.   Sincerely,   Mark Henry, Ed.D.

Eleventh grade art student Kitt Kroeger presents CFISD Science Resource Center Manager, Alice Flood, with two tarps she painted depicting summer and winter scenes on the Katy Prairie. The tarps serve as backdrops in a new exhibit at the center encouraging CFISD second graders to learn and care about the most imperiled ecosystem on the planet. Once covering much of the Houston-Galveston area, the coastal prairie is now threatened by encroaching development. Hosting over 1,000 species of animals (including insects), the dwindling grassland is rich in biological, cultural and economic significance. Created to foster a new generation of prairie conservationists, the Katy Prairie Conservancy has been promoting awareness, education and advocacy among both schoolchildren and the citizenry in hopes that they will engage in volunteer restoration efforts to save the prairie. If you would like to join the effort, please contact Jaime Gonzalez, KPC Community Education Director at 281-660-6683 or jgonzalez@katyprairie.org

Please help Mocha find a home! Biography: Boxer mix. Good with dogs, cats not known. Weight: 50 lbs. Thankfully, my rescuer found me before the cold and the rains came, but I was really hungry and getting thinner each day. Something told me to wait outside that building in Greenspoint and it worked! My skin was a mess (mange) and I needed shots and deworming. But, after regular meals and clean water, my coat looks great! I am a young adult who loves to walk on a leash. It would be so much fun to have a running or jogging buddy in my new home. A dog friend would also be nice.

And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through April.
