BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY: MAKE IT A PRIORITY
As parents prepare for the start of a new school year, teaching children how to be safer needs to be at the top of their list of things to do. An analysis by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children of attempted abductions during the past five years found that children are at most risk when going to and from school or school related activities. Parents and other adults can help keep children safe by following these ten tips: • Teach your children to always TAKE A FRIEND with them when walking or biking and stay with a group while standing at the bus stop. Make sure they know which bus to ride. • Walk the route to and from school with your children pointing out landmarks and safe places to go if they’re being followed or need help. Teach your children they should NEVER TAKE SHORTCUTS and always stay in well-lit areas. • It is not safe for young children to walk to and from school, even in a group. Parents should always provide supervision for young children to help ensure their safe arrival to and from school. If your children wait for a bus, wait with them or make arrangements for supervision at the bus stop. • Teach your children that if anyone bothers them, makes them feel scared or uncomfortable to trust their feelings and immediately get away from that person. Teach them it is ok not to be polite and IT IS OK TO SAY NO. • Teach your children if anyone tries to take them somewhere they should RESIST by kicking and screaming, try to run away and DRAW ATTENTION by kicking and screaming “This person is trying to take me away” or “This person is not my father/mother.”
• Teach your children NOT TO ACCEPT A RIDE from anyone unless you have said it is ok in that instance. If anyone follows them in a vehicle they should turn around, go in the other direction and run to a trusted adult who may help them. • Teach your children that grownups should NOT ASK CHILDREN FOR DIRECTIONS, they should ask other adults. • Teach your children to NEVER ACCEPT MONEY OR GIFTS from anyone unless you have told them it is ok to accept in each instance. • Make sure the school has current and accurate emergency contact information on file for your children and confirm names of those authorized. • Always know where your children will be. Teach your children to always CHECK FIRST before changing their plans before or after school. Teach your children to never leave school with anyone unless they CHECK FIRST with you or another trusted adult, even if someone tells them it is an emergency. Children should be taught to trust their feelings. They need to know that if someone makes them feel scared, uncomfortable or confused, they should tell a parent, guardian or trusted adult.

This is a beautiful community. In helping to keep it that way, it would be great to remind people that they should clean up after their pets. It is great for people to have pets and love their pets, but being a good neighbor is also important. We can’t tell you how bad it feels to put work and money into your yard so that you and your family can enjoy it and play in it... but then you find that other people have left disgusting feces on your yard for you to find and clean up! It is simply not fair. Please be courteous and clean up after your pets!
GARDEN TIPS FOR AUGUST
• Time now to make plans for fall landscaping projects. • Clean up flowerbeds of fallen foliage, yellowed leaves and dead wood. Light green leaves may signify lack of iron (chlorosis). Correct with iron cheleates. • Cut off old dead foliage on irises. Scratch in a little bone meal around the roots. • Prune roses to reshape and groom plants for fall growth. • Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies. • Chinch bug damage is obvious now. You will have areas of thin and/or dead turf where they weren’t brought under control. There is a new generation going now. This batch causes the most damage. Use Dursban to stop the damage. • Until the weather gets back to the 80’s, St. Augustine grass grows slowly. If you fill in with sod, don’t expect a fast turnaround. The sod may look like it’s not growing while it puts down roots. You will need to water the new sod often and deeply to get it started but this also creates a disease environment. Water early so the sun can dry the turf. • Now is a good time to work new beds. Till them up, add organic material, mix it in, then let them cure for a month or so. Add in any amendments like micro-nutrients. Keep the beds moist so the microorganisms have a favorable environment.

For those who would rather stay indoors, nursing homes are always looking for extra hands. Seniors who need assistance doing everyday tasks, often don’t have many visitors and spend much of their time without company. Spending time with them can teach teens compassion, as well as brighten the day of the community’s elderly. Food banks also need helpers. Organizing food drives and distributing the items donated is a great way for Key Club members to volunteer during the summer because it supports the lives of those in need. Over the course of the year everyone accumulates old paraphernalia that isn’t used, but is still in usable condition. An efficient way to get rid of this “junk” is to host a yard sale and donate the proceeds to charities, reducing trash and giving back to the community simultaneously. The items that were not sold can also be donated to organizations like Cypress Assistance Ministries or Goodwill.

SUMMER SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES IN THE CYPRESS AREA
By: Aranka Barbe Cypress Woods Key Club Junior Representative Summer: that time of year every high school student looks forward to the most. For Cy-Woods High School Key Club members, however, it means having copious amounts of time to volunteer and serve the community. Because wildlife flourishes in summer’s plentiful sunlight, neighborhood parks need a lot of maintenance. To make their neighborhoods look their best, students can call their Home Owner’s Association and offer to trim or mow these parks or even build a bench or picnic table to make them more people-friendly.
Villages of Cypress Lakes West
Everyone loves animals and a fun way to turn this love into community service is by volunteering in animal care at the Cypress Science Resource Center. During the school year, volunteers visit elementary schools throughout the district to teach kids about various animals and animal behavior by exhibiting live critters. These furry teachers need to be cared for year-round and summer is an especially fun time to help because the more time you spend with the animals, the better you get to know them. Animal shelters also look for animal-friendly volunteers, but unfortunately often have an age limit for applicants. For those who are eligible, caring for rescue animals is a fulfilling way to spend the summer. Although most teens spend their summer relaxing, not all members of the community have this luxury. Troops overseas are in constant need of personal care items and means of amusement. Donating extra (unopened) containers of shampoo, toothpaste, magazines, books, etc. to organizations like Cypress Cares supports our forces abroad. Cypress has lots of volunteering opportunities during the summer and for any Key Club member looking to catch up, keep up or get ahead on their hours, they don’t have to look far to find service opportunities that fit them.

By: Gaurav Lalsinghani Cypress Woods Key Club Representative Coordinator The course of nature is in harmony during the summer months as the activities of Cypress Woods Key Club continue. Along with recruiting new and eager members, we have occupied ourselves with various donations, events and socials. In order to encourage literacy and celebrate the wealth of reading, the Cypress Woods Key Club, along with several other Division 3N Key Clubs, will be collecting books, school supplies and back-to-school necessities at summer Presidential Council Meetings and other various events to mitigate the worry of financially-struggling families. I feel this project is significantly important for two major reasons. One being that it is unarguably aimed at celebrating and bolstering children. This is such a great cause in general, but it is also in accordance to the motto of Kiwanis International: Serving the Children of the World. This allows us to support the goals of our parent organization and thus our club itself. Furthermore, the donation drive encourages literacy and thus will teach the importance of reading to the children affected. Even more, this project will also teach them the importance of education in general. Such a valuable outcome facilitates the success and progress of the leaders of tomorrow. Our simple donations are stepping stones for children who aim for a better future, wisdom wells for the students whose thirst for knowledge is infinite and escapes for individuals dreaming of prosperous future. As Dr. Seuss said, “The more that you read, the more things you know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” In the course of these summer months, many books will be donated and

will begin their journey to transform the lives of many children, eager to learn and prosper; And hopefully, these children will grow to transform the lives of even more people. A cycle as elegant as this could transform the world undoubtedly for the better. The practicality and applicability of such an event are simple, allowing clubs across T-O to partner up with neighboring organizations and small businesses to reach out to the entire community. The efforts of Key Clubbers are the first steps towards such a future and I encourage you to fervently imitate these steps in this positive direction for the sake of children everywhere.

HOW KEY CLUB CHANGED MY LIFE
By: Nikki Carter Cypress Woods Key Club Editor For my freshman and sophomore years, I was a part of Key Club. However, I use the word “part” very loosely. My friends were joining. It looked good on college applications. Sometimes we get fed at the events. It sounded appealing enough to me, so I joined. Why not, right? I went to the meetings and completed my hours on time, figuring that was all there was to it. At the end of my sophomore year, I applied to be a Junior Representative; I needed another leadership position to list for my National Honor Society application. I got the position with no idea that it would turn out to be one of the best developments of not only my high school career, but my life. It was after this promotion that I finally threw myself completely into the wonderful world of Key Club and figured out that it is so much more than a bullet point on a college application. Volunteering is a strange concept to many. One gives of his own time and resources willingly to help someone else and expects nothing in return. In a society so focused on personal material growth, the motivation behind this is notion is confusing. However, one detail that is overlooked by those with a financial mindset is that the volunteer actually does get something in return. It sounds cliché, but the sense of worth that one gains after helping another is something that can’t be bought or exchanged and it makes one forget about and not mind not getting paid for his time. This is a fact that I have come to know throughout my time as a Key Clubber; the long, late hours of working concessions at sporting events and the impatient, frustrated parents of Jr. High cup stackers could never dampen my spirits enough to make me want to stop giving my time, because it’s not about my own comfort at all.

Another aspect of volunteering that I haven’t truly experienced anywhere else is the knowledge that no matter your race, gender, social circle or past, you can always find a place to belong in Key Club. At my first DCON this past April, I was blown away by how friendly and accepting everybody was. The spirit of volunteering carries over easily into Key Clubbers’ social

interactions; we put others before ourselves. Making a first-timer like me feel welcome and comfortable at a giant convention like DCON was more important to seasoned attendees than sitting and talking with old friends. That’s a hard thing for most high schoolers to do and it demonstrates just how incredible the bond is between people who live their lives for others. This organization is so much more than an extracurricular activity to those who truly pour their hearts and souls into it. Key Club has become a beacon of light in my own life by offering me countless opportunities to do the same in the lives of other people, which is, in itself, priceless.

‘BEGINNING WITH BEETHOVEN’ TAKES HOLD OF HOUSTON
‘Beginning with Beethoven,’ the premier of the Transformation Trilogy concert series produced by local arts ensemble the Houston New Arts Movement (HNAM), stunned a packed house as it came to life on the stage at Dowling Music. Some of Ludwig van Beethoven’s most ambitious works were resurrected including the incomparable “Ghost Trio,” performed by HNAM members Adam Vincent Clay, Cony Ruiz Tamez and Laura Cividino. “Throughout his compositions, Ludwig van Beethoven took the form that predated him and transformed it,” said HNAM founder and pianist Adam Vincent Clay. “He composed with more personal and emotional intensity in his music, the beginning of a major transformation of the history of music composition. With these concerts, we are taking the audience on a journey through a range of emotions. Beethoven’s musical style changed much as he did, moving through the structures of the classical and romantic era and ultimately the heavy dissonance of his later works, even foreshadowing the compositional language of the twentieth century.”

HOSTING A FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT IS EASIER THAN YOU MAY THINK
During the 2013-2014 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.
Villages of Cypress Lakes West
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 281-770-3414.
EXCHANGE STUDENTS FROM AMERICAN COUNCILS
The U.S. Department of State sponsors exchange programs that bring high school students from over 50 countries from all over the world in the United State for an academic year to live with an American host family, attend high school and learn about American society. American Councils is always looking for interested and excited host families to host one of their students. For more information, visit http://inbound.americancouncils.org or email email@example.com. You can also contact Assia Baburi by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 713-856-5020.
