May 2013 Making the Summer-Time Count

Enjoying your free time is important. Making the most of it is sometimes a challenge. But there are no guarantees in having a trouble free summer. It takes planning, thought and care in implementing your plan. It is good if someone is out there helping to make your plan happen as well. We call help many things; angels, good neighbors, an active volunteer and sometimes we use harsher words. In order to be successful, we need to talk about our plan and we need accountability to keep our plans on track. Our alliance (HOA and residents) with one another is supposed to be part of that network you go to for help. Don’t ever give up on that process. Get the facts and make sure to communicate clearly and effectively. If the process feels less friendly than it should, please contact us. It was intended to be a good process. I find being civil to one another can sometimes be challenging, but like your summer plan, can be easy with help and practice. Reach out to your neighbors this summer and make a connection not previously made - we will all be better for it! They say you always get what you pay for, but I personally believe good things come at a small price. While bad things seem to catch us by surprise, you can limit the element of surprise by staying involved. Speak up if there is something wrong and try eliminating entitlements that are not needed. Beauty has always been in the eye of the beholder. Responsibilities Relationships in any organization have a purpose. We establish structure through concepts we use early on in School Clubs, Local Associations, our Church Events and even Political Parties. The Robert Rules of Order have been implemented to help us to work with each other, to ensure civil discourse. Hopefully, we all get to review a class or two. Some of the main issues on civil society are coping with minor and major challenges. I cannot think of anything more worthy of talking about; however, it does bring up deeper issues that can cause conflict between each other. Discussion is still a worthy endeavor. I will look back at Hurricane Ike to recall some lessons we learned. Galveston ISD lost a lot of School Buses during the storm surge. People trying to get out of Galveston found a lack of transportation to get off the Island. Afterwards, someone commented that it was a shame that volunteers could not have been used to drive the buses to help in the evacuations. It would have been a win-win situation. But there was no easy method to accomplish the task. Therefore people struggled unnecessarily trying to get out and buses were lost in the storm.

Let’s look at what happened here, in West Memorial in 2008, after the storm. People came out and helped one another. Downed trees were removed from the streets, even as the assessments were being done. It was a blessing that many just took for granted. Every action has a cost. The one we accepted, begrudgingly, was from those who did not take action. It is the same circumstance when any individuals pass on expenses to others. When we allow, irresponsible actions from others. That mattress dumped on the school grounds, those tree limbs stuck in the recycle bins and others similar actions, it is frustrating to those who accept the resulting consequences. The actions were inconsiderate and irresponsible. During the hurricane aftermath, debris thrown on to the esplanades was an extra expense. It was caused by misinformation; at least I would like to justify it that way. Being responsible includes making note of time, date and persons from whom you have gathered your information. Later, should an issue arise; it is easier to have the facts written down than to recall them from memory. A lack of information results in a matter of cost. Sharing the costs need to be an agreeable action.

Our Annual Meeting Update

The inspector is hired by the Management Company and is sent out to collect data monthly. Your Directors will get these letters in the mail just like you. The only difference is that we have to correct it and then face our fellow Directors afterward. It makes us accountable to your cause as well as a reminder that no one should be “above the law.” We are not in judgment over every details, so speaking to us, either in writing or by speaking at a meeting, helps keep it all on track. The Directors are neighbors that volunteer their time for our subdivision.

High Sierra Management generates invoices for the annual assessments and they are mailed out in late November or early December. The maintenance fees must be paid in full or an installment plan set up by February 1st of each year. The management company will send out a reminder notice to all homeowners who have not paid their assessment in full or set up an installment plan with the management company at the beginning of February each year. The homeowner is not charged for this letter. In April, the management company will send a certified letter requesting payment to each delinquent homeowner who has not already set up an installment plan and the homeowner will be assessed a fee for the letter. This expense is part of a process and not a punishment. It is something that can be discussed during our annual meeting.

As residents agree to abide by the majority view; the style and standards of a community are established and everyone benefits. For your information, restrictions are written by the developer before the first home is constructed and the Association is then charged with the on-going responsibility of enforcing them. They can be changed, but a very large percentage vote of homeowners is required to do so. Please let us know if you see a problem in the neighborhood.

KATY ISD NAMED AMONG BEST COMMUNITIES FOR MUSIC EDUCATION

For the eleventh time in the past 12 years, Katy ISD has been named among the Best Communities for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation, which recognizes schools and districts across the U.S. for their commitment and support for music education. Katy ISD is one of only 21 districts in Texas to receive this recognition for 2013.

Association Clinic in San Antonio in February were the Katy High School Jazz Band, the Stephens Elementary “Stompin’ Hooves” instrumental ensemble and the Griffin Elementary Fifth Grade Choir. Continuing to provide diverse music education opportunities, Katy ISD hosted its fifth annual Katy Jazz Festival, April 26th - 27th. The Katy Jazz Festival provides a learning and performance venue to student and professional musicians, while increasing exposure, education and entertainment to the Katy/West Houston area. “Students in Katy ISD are exposed to high-quality music programs from kindergarten through their senior year,” added Bryant. “Studies have shown that children engaged in music and the arts often perform better academically as well. This is just another reason why we try to offer a variety of quality fine arts programs and opportunities for our students.” Among the music programs offered to Katy ISD students include: string orchestra, full orchestra, choir vocal ensemble, marching band, concert band, jazz band and multiple individual events of solos and small ensembles.

KATY ISD PARTNERS IN EDUCATION TIES & TIARAS

Ties & Tiaras, hosted March 7th, celebrated mentors and featured this year’s KEYS artwork, “Unlocking the Future,” created by art honor students from Katy High School.

“Our music educators constantly go above and beyond their required duties to make sure their students succeed. This recognition is a direct reflection of their commitment,” said Bob Bryant, executive director of fine arts for Katy ISD. “It is evident that our community, administration and School Board supports and encourages quality music education for every student.”

A big thank you to our sponsors!

Last September, two Katy ISD musical groups, the McMeans Jr. High Symphonic Band and the Cinco Ranch High School Symphony Orchestra, were selected as National Winners in the Mark of Excellence honors by the Foundation for Music Education. Additionally, the Cinco Ranch Junior High Honors Band was selected and performed in December for the prestigious Midwest Clinic in Chicago. Selected and performing at the Texas Music Educators

2013 National Honor Society Induction

Sixteen new members were inducted into the National Honor Society at Faith West Academy High School during a ceremony Thursday, March 21st, at the FWA auditorium in Katy.

NAT-22525-0

The National Honor Society was established in 1921. “The organization has upwards of one million members,” said FWA Chapter president Stan Stanulonis. “Next year will be the 16th year of the Faith West Chapter of the National Honor Society and these 16 inductees will be extraordinary members,” he said prior to inducing the guest speaker. Guest speaker Marsue Ferguson, education and language consultant (specializing in teacher training), addressed the audience with comments about the five pillars of NHS - leadership, scholarship, service, character and citizenship. Mrs. Ferguson encouraged the new inductees to make the most of every opportunity to serve and lead others with honor. “Do well and be able to look back and say ‘I did some good’,” she said. Members were selected based on outstanding performance in scholarship (3.50 or better cumulative GPA), leadership, service and character. “National Honor Society members are chosen for and then expected to continue, their exemplary contributions to the school and community,” said Mrs. Sandye Reed, chapter advisor. Mrs. Reed followed by listing various clubs, sports and 59 service activities the inductees were involved. Some of those service activities included: Katy Christian Ministries, Habitat for Humanity orphanage in Vietnam for children with dioxin disease, St. Justin’s food bank and Houston Food Bank.

Mildred’s Umbrella Theatre Company proudly presents Ravenscroft, by Don Nigro, Thursday through Saturday and Monday, May 3-18, 2013 with a preview on Thursday, May 2nd. Directed by Rob Kimbro and starring Sean Patrick Judge, Michelle Edwards, Claire Anderson, Karen Schlag, Zoquera Millburne and Kara Ray. SYNOPSIS: This psychological drama is a thinking person’s Gothic thriller, a dark comedy that is both funny and frightening. On a snowy night, Inspector Ruffing is called to a remote house to investigate the death Patrick Roarke. He becomes involved in the lives of five alluring and dangerous women, all of whom are suspects in the murder. There are ghosts on the staircase, skeletons in the closet and much more than the Inspector bargained for. His investigation leads into own tortured soul and the nature of truth itself. You will not guess the ending, but you will be teased, seduced, bewildered, amused, frightened and led to a dark encounter with truth or something even stranger.   DON NIGRO is an American playwright; his plays Anima Mundi and The Dark Sonnets of the Lady have both been nominated for the National Repertory Theatre Foundation’s National Play Award. He has won a Playwright’s Fellowship Grant from the National Endowment For The Arts, grants from the Mary Roberts Rinehart Foundation and the Ohio Arts Council, and twice been James Thurber Writer In Residence at the Thurber House in Columbus, Ohio…. a fun ride and it’s also fun to discover all those kinky goings-

Host a foreign exchange student

During the 2012-2013 school year, students from all across the world will have the opportunity to travel to Houston and surrounding communities to spend the entire school year in the United States, learning and working with American Families. In order for the students to come to the U.S. they must have proper host families lined up. Now is a crucial time of year for the Ayusa program as local staff coordinators to find local host families for the upcoming school year. The Ayusa program is celebrating its 30th year this year and is responsible for more than 60,000 students from 75 different countries spending the school year in the United States. There are not many strict requirements that need to be met to host a student. The most important thing is that those who host students are doing so for the right reason; providing a loving experience and an exposure to American culture. There are a few basic requirements, of course. Anyone older than 25 and can provide food and shelter for a student fulfills the requirements of being a host family. There is a background check, reference check and an interview. Background checks have to be done on everyone over 18 living in the home. The host families have to be interested in it for the right reasons, the cultural exchange of learning from them and them learning from us. It’s the language, the cooking, the music, the food. The host family has to be genuinely interested. 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 2013-2014 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. Please contact Heather Wells by email ayusakaty@gmail.com or by phone 281-770-3414.
