10 WAYS TO STAY HYDRATED THIS SUMMER
While it’s always a good idea to stay hydrated, it’s especially important when the temps of Summer start rising. Whether you’re spending your vacation camping and hiking or just doing more outdoor daily activities like biking and walking, I’ve got some tips for how you can stay hydrated during the warm weather months. • Eat your water. Chowing down on water-filled foods like watermelon, is an easy and refreshing way to keep hydrated. • Swap soda for sparkling water. If you’re trying to kick a soda habit, sparkling water is a healthy, but still fizzy, alternative. • Hydrate before exercising. Be sure to drink water before exercising to maximize your workout. • Drink water on the plane. If you’re traveling this Summer, don’t forget to drink up the H2O on the plane. • Stay hydrated at work. Even when working indoors, it’s important to keep the fluids handy. • There are five more ways, so read more. • Drink water before meals. By drinking water before meals, not only will you stay hydrated but you’re less likely to overeat. • Have enough on hand. When you’re spending the day camping or biking, it’s important to bring enough water to last the trip. • Spice it up with healthy flavoring. If you’re having a hard time getting enough water, spice it up with some natural flavoring. • Keep track of your daily water intake. Try this tasty and handy way to keep track of your H2O intake. • Keep a reusable bottle with you. Having a water bottle with you at all times is the easiest way to stay hydrated without even thinking about it.
INDOOR ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS
“Mom, can I watch a movie?” This is how I woke up this morning. A cute little four-year-old face, inches away from mine, asking to be entertained by major Hollywood corporations. I don’t have a problem with TV or movies—we watch them both. But we all know they’re FAR too often the default choice of leisure time for children. They can easily suck away imagination, energy, and the innocence of our kids, and a few hours of distraction just isn’t worth that, in my opinion. But during these dog days of summer, it’s also hard to shoo your kids outside, at least if you live in a climate like ours, where the norm is 100+ degrees fahrenheit daily. Unfortunately, it’s just not safe to let kids sweat in this brutal heat for hours at a time.

or plant some treasures in rooms and on shelves (in an age-appropriate location, of course). Then make a list of objects, and have your child go on a treasure hunt. If they can’t yet read, draw a sketch of the hidden item. 19. Have them help with batch cooking. Do you have a batch cooking day planned? If they’re old enough to stir, sift, and pour, let them help you with the basics — pasta and pizza sauces, muffins, and breads are all kidfriendly. And it’s a good chance to teach about numbers, fractions, nutrition, and providing for the family. 20. Nothing. Boredom is good for kids. Children are seldom truly bored, they just haven’t lately exercised that part of the brain that requires them to use their imagination. Make a rule that if your kid announces they’re bored, they’ll have to do chores. So if they truly can’t think of anything off-hand to do… eventually, they’ll think of something. It’s a good lesson to learn that life is not always entertaining, and that they’re not the center of attention. And if you’ve got a typical home, there’s actually plenty they can do. So don’t feel like you always have to provide options and events for your children. They’ll be just fine exercising their brain. Source: Tsh, simplemom.net

GARDEN TIPS FOR JULY
• Plant fall flowering annuals where your spring annuals have bloomed out. Set our seeds like zinnia, marigold, cosmos, petunia and portulaca so you’ll have color until frost. Don’t let seedlings dry out. • In summer, prune roses to keep them in shape. Continue black spot and insect treatments. Water 2” once per week. • Remove spent crepe myrtle flowers to prolong bloom production. • Weeds rob plants of valuable water, nutrients--remove them. • Great sun/heat-lovers include coral honeysuckle, coreopsis, lantana, oleanders and hamelia. • Fertilize flowers lightly, if at all; too hot for heavy feedings. • Water your lawn longer but less frequent. Deep water of about 2 - 3” per week forces plant roots to grow down, instead of sideways into sunbaked upper soil levels. Use a bowl in your yard to measure during waterings.

The House and Senate successfully negotiated a two-year budget that will restore approximately $4 billion of the $5.4 billion in cuts to public education that were made by the 82nd Legislature in 2011. While the budget still needs to be approved by the full House and Senate and signed by the governor, this key negotiation between five members from each side is expected to be the basis for the new funding system through 2015. This is a huge step in the right direction for Texas public schools and Cypress-Fairbanks ISD and I commend the members of the 83rd Legislature - specifically those within the CFISD delegation - who worked diligently to make this education budget replenishment happen.
Villages of Cypress Lakes
I would especially like to thank Sens. Dan Patrick, John Whitmire, Joan Huffman and Glenn Hegar and Reps. Patricia Harless, Allen Fletcher, Bill Callegari, Gary Elkins, Dwayne Bohac, Sylvester Turner and Jessica Farrar for using the power of their votes to keep our students’ best interests in mind. We have been fortunate in CFISD to maintain academic excellence amid financial constraints, but the additional infusion of money will be paramount as we seek to provide students with the best possible educational experience. Thank you for any feedback you gave to our local legislators that stressed the need for a properly funded education system in Texas. Although we didn’t recoup all of the money cut during the last biennium, we will be in much better shape moving forward. Sincerely, Mark Henry, Ed.D

CY-RANCH KEY CLUB “TEAMS” UP WITH HOUSTON PROFESSIONAL SPORTS TEAMS
Members of the Cypress Ranch Key Club have recently volunteered with both the Houston Rockets and the Houston Astros. Club members and their parents passed out huge foam fingers to fans entering Toyota Center for one of the final Rockets games of their regular season. The club was invited back a week later to hand out towels to fans at the Rockets first playoff game. A highlight of the Key Club’s year was being asked to pass out a giveaway item to fans at the Rockets home opener this season. The Key Club recently volunteered at the Rockets Black-Top Battle and has helped for years at the post-race party at the annual Rockets Run. For the second year in a row, the Key Club has been chosen to be a part of the Houston Astros promotional giveaway program. Club members, faculty advisors and parents spent time at two weekend games in May passing out umbrellas and tote bags to fans entering Minute Maid Park. Members stayed to watch the games to cheer on our Astros. The Cy-Ranch Key Club spends the majority of their time volunteering in the Cypress area and in the Cy-Fair ISD schools, but club members enjoy traveling downtown to volunteer for our Houston professional sports teams! Go Rockets and Astros!
CYPRESS RANCH KEY CLUB TAKES TOP PRIZE AT DISTRICT CONVENTION
The Cypress Ranch Key Club recently returned from the Texas-Oklahoma District Convention with arms full of trophies and awards. Twentynine members attended the convention in Dallas, where they attended leadership-training workshops, taught a forum on fundraising and charity giving and participated in several competitions. At the convention’s Saturday night Awards Banquet, the club walked away with seven trophies, other recognitions and was ranked as the #1 Best Key Club in the two-state district’s prestigious “Top 25 Clubs.” There are over 300 Key Clubs in Texas and Oklahoma, including nine clubs in Cy-Fair ISD. The club won the first place club trophy and also received the Best Club traveling cup that will remain at Cypress Ranch until next year’s convention.

They did exactly that. I could not be more proud of them. Nikoli, Ben, Luke and Andrew placed first as a team at every Computer Science contest. I have coached computer teams for 17 years and I have never witnessed a team win every contest, start to finish. It was awesome to see the team finish the season strong with a big win at UIL state.

As his investigations proceed, the events that follow change the course of all their lives - forever. Dawn King’s play won the 2011 Papatango New Writing Competition (in partnership with London’s Finborough Theatre). A darkly comic exploration of belief, desire and responsibility, set in a world both strange and familiar, from a striking new voice in British theatre.

CROSSROADS is a nonprofit United Way agency that provides mentors for at risk youth between the ages of 10 and 17. Visit our website at www.crossroadsvolunteers.org and consider running an ad like the one below in your Copperfield subdivision newsletter.

Mentoring makes a difference in both the life of the youth and our community. A commitment of 1 hour weekly is all we ask. Help us shape the leaders of tomorrow by contacting Jan, CROSSROADS Volunteer Recruiter at Jan.gibbs@ hcjpd.hctx.net or 713-295-2779. Mentor one child… change two lives.
The Cy-Fair community has a new non-profit organization named Mission Cy-Fair. You can learn more about us at www.missioncyfair.org. We are currently needing volunteers to work with our after school apartment ministry serving the children of The Lake and Timberwalk apartments located at 5650 Timbercreek Place Drive. If you are interested, we’d love to talk with you more. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
SPECIAL CHEERS NEEDS VOLUNTEERS
Special CHEERS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing Occupational Therapy to children with special needs of all ages living in and around the greater Houston area. Our facility is unique in that we utilize animals, including horses, dogs, goats, pigs, lambs and rabbits as an integral part of each child’s therapy treatment plan. Being a non-profit organization, we are constantly looking for extra help around the farm. Therefore, Special CHEERS would like to welcome all high school and college-aged students interested in working with both children and animals to volunteer after school, on the weekends or seasonally (i.e., summer camp). Please call our administrative assistant, Ms. Denise Pace, at 713-983-0075, for more information. A background check will be required of all individuals applying for a volunteer position at our facility.
