May 2013 POOL TIME AGAIN
Once again, it is time to head for our pool. By now, each of you should have received in the mail your notification of the pool schedule and those interested will have picked up their swim tags - a prerequisite for use of our pool. As a reminder, the pool will be open weekends beginning May 4th (plus Memorial Day), full time June 1st through August 25th, reverting to weekends again (plus Labor Day) through its closing on September 2nd. Hours of operation for the pool are 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM. For your ongoing reference, this information is posted on the Swimming Pool tab of the Recreation page of our website www. wsmaonline.org - Also, in order to avoid disappointment, please remember that if the pool is open on a Monday for a Holiday, it will be closed the next day, Tuesday, for cleaning. The pool operation will again be managed by Houston Recreational Management staff, this year under the management of a new director and with more experienced lifeguards. The Board believes that these changes will result in a more positive experience for all of our residents who enjoy using our pool each year.

The April Yard-of-the-Month award goes to Hank and Sharon Babylon of 22422 S. Rebecca Burwell. Hank and Sharon have lived in The Settlement for 18 years. They love the fact that the neighborhood is very quiet. They also like the fact that the houses are not painted wild annoying colors like the neighborhood in which they previously lived. Their yard is ablaze with beautiful bright pink Azaleas, every inch of which has vibrant blooms. The trees are neatly lined with Cast Iron Plants. Mixed in the front beds is an array of Bird’s Nest ferns, red Roses and yellow Lantana. On one end opposite the Azaleas is a stunning Bridle Wreath Spirea with each graceful limb afire with clusters of white flowers. Their back yard is as stunning as the front with a collection of bird houses that each represent a special place such as a Mexican restaurant, a church, an antique store, etc. and they have many hanging plants all abloom. Thank you Hank and Sharon for adding such beauty to our neighborhood.

inclusion in the directories or if they don’t want ANY information included IN EITHER the hard copy or the on-line directories, they can so indicate by completing the simpler form at the bottom of the Registration page. This request to new residents is included in the Welcome Packet given to each as soon as PCMI is made aware of the change in ownership.
And for those who have not yet registered, you are strongly urged to do so as this is the best mechanism we have to quickly communicate with our residents.
To report a burned out streetlight, any resident may call CenterPoint directly at 713-207-2222. However, for those with Internet access, you may also make this report on-line. For those interested, you can go to http://cnp.centerpointenergy.com/outage (the website address). Then enter your contact details so that they can get back to you if more information is required. On the following page enter the details of the light(s) with the problem. Just as you would if reporting the outage via the telephone, you will need to provide the street address where the light is located and the 6-digit number that is prominently displayed on the front of the pole. Under normal circumstances the crew will be out to fix the problem within 7 working days. Anyone noticing a streetlight that is out or has some other malfunction is encouraged to report the problem to CenterPoint via either of these two methods without delay. Our Association is charged for every streetlight each month, irrespective of whether or not the light is functioning. So please help us get value for your hard earned money!
Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
RESIDENT DIRECTORY MAINTENANCE
If any resident wishes to update the information that they have previously provided for publication in the Maintenance Association Directory or on the Directory page of our website, they can do so by using the Residents’ Directory Entry form. This form is accessible via the Registration or Directory pages of our website www.wsmaonline. org The webmaster uses the information submitted to maintain the directory database. If the resident indicates on the form that he or she is agreeable to having that information accessible via the online Directory page, the update will be made as soon as possible usually within 24 hours. Throughout 2013, the information will also be marked for inclusion in any future edition of the hard copy directory, monthly updates of which will be emailed to all registered residents who can use them to manually annotate their copies. If the resident wants the information restricted to the hard copy directory, then it will be used only for this purpose and will not be posted on-line. A record of all changes since the last publication of the hard copy directory will be maintained and will be emailed to any resident who requests it so that they can keep their copies current. New residents to our subdivision are requested to use the same Residents’ Directory Entry form to register their information for

Reminder About House painting
Residents need to be sure and pay attention to the state of the paint on their houses. Many of the houses in the settlement are of an age that they will soon need to be repainted or sided. Please be proactive in getting this done when necessary. Doing this before you have a problem will not only keep your house looking nicer, but doing it early can end up saving you money! But please remember that all such work does require Architectural Review Committee approval. This is obtained by completing a “Request For Home Improvement Approval” form and mailing it to PCMI. A blank copy of this form is included in this newsletter and is also available on the Board Notices and Forms page our website at WSMAonline.org.

Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents. While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at someone who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children are afraid of animals and become frightened, which could result in the child getting hurt trying to avoid the animal. Veterinary Public Health (formerly called Harris County Animal Control) advises that “All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat or to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.” Restraint is defined as the control of a dog or cat under the following circumstances: 1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more then six (6) feet in length, if the line or leash is held by a human being who is capable of controlling or governing the dog or cat in question. 2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle. 3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not have access to sidewalk to street. While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained. Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for all our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only protect anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also the pet owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued for failing to properly restrain their pet.

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.

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. After the ceremony, there was a congratulatory reception hosted by the current 20 members for new inductees and guests.

Tony Durr - Master Electrician Mr. Sparky - Houston, TX
281-617-2231 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.
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.
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.
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.
There are not many strict requirements that need to be met to host a student.
Please contact Heather Wells by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 281-770-3414.
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.

Vacation Bible School
CELEBRATE THE “BAT MITZVAH” OF CONGREGATION OR AMI
Epiphany Lutheran Church & School VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
During 2013, Congregation Or Ami, a conservative synagogue serving West Houston, Katy and Fort Bend County, will be celebrating its 12th birthday. As is customary for Jewish girls of this age, this means it’s time to have a Bat Mitzvah party! Our celebration will be held at Congregation Or Ami - 3443 Wilcrest Drive (between Richmond and Westpark) - on Sunday evening, April 28th starting at 5 pm. Festivities will include a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, dinner, music and dancing and a silent auction. During this event, we will also be honoring and thanking one of our congregants, Augusta Levine, for her many years of volunteer work to train our students to read from the Torah and chant Haftorah. Tickets are $100 per person, with sponsorships for tables of 10 starting at $1,500. You will also have the opportunity to contribute a photo and/or message for a tribute book that will be presented to Augusta Levine. For additional information, please call Congregation Or Ami at 713334-4300.

Their ministry is to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the people of metropolitan and suburban Houston through the uplifting message of gospel music. Their song list includes traditional, wellknown hymns, as well as more recent offerings from contemporary recording quartets. Glory Bound features Bass John Voll, Tenor Bill Beck, Baritone Chip Feazel, High Tenor Jeff Dethrow and Tony Custer on the piano.

CLARIFICATION OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR SUBMITTING THE REQUEST FOR HOME IMPROVEMENT FORM
Residents are reminded that whenever they decide to make any change to their property that requires submittal of a Request for Home Improvement form, (a copy, plus instructions for completion are included in this newsletter and on the Association’s web site), that THEY are responsible for submitting this form and obtaining the necessary approval. This is still the case if the work is to be performed by a contractor. If they have a contractor who claims they will submit the form, it is still the resident’s responsibility, prior to the commencement of any work on the improvement, to call PCMI to verify that the contractor actually did ﬁle a request and that approval has been obtained. The resident does not have permission to undertake any changes until they verify it with PCMI themselves.
