NATIONAL STUDY OF EDUCATION FOUNDATIONS TOP 20 IN THE NATION IN SUPPORTING PUBLIC EDUCATION CY-FAIR EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION RANKS NUMBER 15

713-932-7290

A recent national study of education foundations and funds in the 50 largest school districts ranks the Top 20 education foundations/ funds in the nation is supporting public education. Duplicating the same study done in 2005, this year’s study used school year 2009-2010 data (most recent year available) from the Form 990 (page one) that non-profits use to report financial information. It also assessed and compared most of the same performance categories as the 2005 study. First, the study analyzes the effectiveness of an education fund/ foundation at generating and sustaining financial resources to serve the students of its school district. “The rationale is that the more financial resources a foundation can generate the more services and programs it can provide to enhance the public school experience for students,� said Dewey Caruthers, president of Dewey & Associates, a 13-year-old management consulting firm that conducts occasional studies in education, juvenile justice and public health. Second, the study assessed the effectiveness of distributing financial resources, taking into consideration the number of students in its school district. “We wanted to see the amounts of financial resources these organizations distributed through programs to help students,� Caruthers said.

A new topic added to this recent study was the role of volunteers. “The ability to grow and sustain large numbers of volunteers is an asset for a foundation, which can be leveraged many different ways to improve public schools,� Caruthers said. Specifically, the recent study compared the following variables: - Long-term financial sustainability (total assets, assets per student, investment income) - Fundraising/revenues (total revenues and revenues per student) - Program expenditures (total program expenses and program expenses per student – both less salaries and benefits) - Volunteers (total volunteers) The overall Top 20 was the collective scoring of all eight performance categories. The foundations that appeared in the Top 20 in the most categories were ranked highest, emphasizing the importance of being well-rounded.

H-E-B SITE VISIT FOR EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION AWARD H-E-B site judges visited CFISD as a finalist for the 2012 H-E-B Excellence in Education award. This recognition is designed to honor outstanding public schools. The award will be announced in May and the winning district will receive $100,000. In addition to visiting two campuses, Cy-Fair High School and Cypress Lakes High School, the judges met with a group representing community members, business partners, volunteers, parents, teachers and students. One of the district’s strengths is its broad base of community support. Those in attendance articulated their confidence in the district in providing a quality education, which has become a longstanding tradition and hallmark of the Cy-Fair community.

Our guests witnessed a diverse student population that was engaged in a well-balanced curriculum that includes core subjects, technology, electives and extracurricular activities. Very aware that CFISD is the third largest district in Texas and the largest “Recognized” district, the judges saw first-hand how a community pulls together and works with dedicated staff members to ensure student success in a climate of financial challenges. The award announcement is important, but more impressive is the ownership those of us who live and work in Cy-Fair take in our school district. This is what sets us apart from other districts.

BOY SCOUTS

BOY SCOUT TrOOp 10

BOY SCOUT TrOOp 3 Boys, are you yearning for exciting outdoor programs that stir your imagination and interest? How about camping, fishing, canoeing, hiking, backpacking and off-road biking? Do you want to learn wilderness survival, cooking, first aid orienteering and shooting skills? Scouting is Fun… with a Purpose – where boys grow into men instilled with values of duty to God and Country, community service, citizenship, leadership and self-confidence. Troop 3 is a boy-lead troop, where the boys plan an exciting year-round outdoor program. We camp monthly and include rock climbing, backpacking and an upcoming canoe trip. Troop 3 is currently planning the weeklong summer camp where scouts can hone their scout skills. We welcome all young men, 11-18 years old to visit Boy Scout Troop 3 at 7:00 PM Monday nights at Cornerstone United Methodist Church on Ridge Park in Copperfield. No previous scouting experience needed! Come see for yourself what Boy Scouts has to offer and visit with the Scouts to learn more about our troop.

Boy Scout Troop 10 meets every Tuesday night during the school year at the West Houston Church of Christ on West Road and Queenston. Our meetings begin at 7 PM. We spend our time working on merit badges, planning for our monthly camp outs and having fun!! The older boys had a great time camping at Pedernales State Park last month. They were able to hike, Geocache and work on several outdoor skills. The new Pedro Scouts also camped at Bear Creek Park. This was their introductory camp out that helped prepare them for the longer camp outs to come. We finished out the month with our 1st Annual Red and Tan Banquet! The boys participated in a table-decorating contest, won door prizes and ate delicious BBQ provided by Weatherly Catering! After the banquet we switched gears and began our semi-annual Court of Honor. The boys and parents were very proud as we watched several of them advance in rank. If you have a son in the 6th grade or higher that would like to join in the fun and adventure please contact us. Our Scout Master is Michael Widaski and his number is 713-376 5166. You can also contact our Committee Chairperson, Joseph Jefferson, at 281-684-5197 or check our website at www.bsat10.com.

“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. 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. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.

Cornerstone UMC reCeives BsA AwArd

On Sunday morning, February 12th at the 10:45 AM service, Mr. Hugh Corpening, the District Committee Chairperson for the Copperhead District of Boy Scouts of America, presented to Dr. Dave Meadows, senior pastor at Cornerstone United Methodist Church, the Copperhead District Chartered Partner Award for 2011. The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and develops personal fitness. For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible and productive society. Cornerstone UMC, with campuses at 15919 Ridge Park Dr. and 18081 West Road in northwest Houston, currently sponsors onetenth of the Scouting units in the Copperhead District. For 15 years, Cornerstone has sponsored Troop 3 and for 10 years the church has sponsored Troop 1296. In 2008, Crew 396 was founded to serve the older youth of both of these troops as well as the high school age young women in the northwest Houston community of Copperfield. This year, Pack 833 and Troop 421 also needed sponsors. Once again, Cornerstone stepped in to fill that need. Cornerstone UMC believes that Scouting with its emphasis as expressed in “The Scout Oathâ€? to â€œâ€Śdo my duty to God and County‌to help other people at all times‌to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straightâ€? is certainly consistent with the Christian faith. For more information about Cornerstone United Methodist Church of Houston, please visit their website at www.cornerstoneumc.org.

Bear Creek United Methodist Church is located at 16000 Rippling Water Drive, near North Highway 6 and Kieth Harrow.
