TIMELY TIP fOr MaY GardENErS frOM COrNELIUS NUrSErY Texas is home to nearly 5,000 native plant species due to the vast and diverse geography of our great state! often people envision “native plants� with Mesquites and cacti but many of our basic landscape plants are native to Texas. After the Summer of 2011, gardeners are looking for Texas tough plants in their landscapes. Native plants tolerate our Texas Summer heat better than most, require less water, need less mowing, provide habitats for birds, butterflies and other wildlife, protect the soil and save on fertilizers and insecticides.

Add native trees to your landscape and enjoy the colorful blooms from the Texas Mountain Laurel or Desert Willow. Select Texas Sage for its purple Summer flowers or the Red Yucca with its red spikelike bloom as additions to your landscape. Native grasses such as Mexican Feathergrass or Big Muhly add another different texture and look to the garden. Also, don’t forget the reliable perennials for providing Texas tough color! Blackfoot Daisy, Gaura, Coneflower and many of your Salvias are native to Texas and will provide color year after year once they are established. Don’t forget Mom this month! Color in May comes from more than a bouquet of blossoms for Mom on Mother’s Day! Plan ahead and give that special person a living bouquet that changes with the seasons. Buy your mom a native plant and know that you are making her garden a more enjoyable place for both her and the birds and butterflies.

Morton Ranch High School hosted its 7th annual Black History Program on February 16th. This year’s theme, “HEROES,” paid homage to the student’s heroes within their lives - whether a past historical figure that paved a way for them to have a better today or someone within their family that is their constant cheerleader. Student performances ranged from original poetry works, lyrical and hip-hop dances, skits and songs.

GIFTED STUDENTS BECOME ARCHEOLOGISTS DIGGING FOR TREASURE More than 1,300 gifted students from every KISD elementary campuses visited the Katy Outdoor Learning Center over a two-week period to spend a day being archeologists. In budget conscious times, KISD and Katy Parents of Gifted and Talented (KPGT) joined forces to create a fantastic opportunity to put months of class research into practice. Specially prepared archeological pits were an unending source of fascinating artifacts leading students to hypothesize why bones, beads, arrowheads and other items may be discovered. Energetic geo-caching scavenger hunts through the woodlands introduced how archeologists use new technology. Archeology experts volunteered their time and knowledge to take students around the world on a virtual tour of ancient civilizations.

The theme this year was “we can save our planet.” Girls from Cadette Troop 17081 showcased Scotland.

In addition, any girls who ‘visited’ their country received a sticker of The Royal Flag of Scotland for their passport, samples of delicious Scottish shortbread and a swap kit containing a tiny glass of milk (since we are in the middle of cookie sales). As a highlight of the event two lovely young ladies from St. Thomas Episcopal School provided a lively demonstration of the Highland Fling accompanied by the rousing skirl o’ the bagpipes.

Who: Joe Joe Bear Foundation a 501(c)(3) organization When: June 9, 2012 Why: When visiting hours are over, children in hospitals with lifethreatening illnesses are alone, with no one to comfort them. A gift of a teddy bear from the Joe Joe Bear foundation is the comfort they need in these lonely times… a reminder of those who love them and want them to overcome their illnesses. We have given thousands of bears to hospitals like Shriner’s and MD Anderson; but the need is always present.

compelling musical voyage into post-revolutionary France opens on Saturday, May 5th at the Berry Center 8877 Barker Cypress Rd, Cypress, TX 77433 and has 8 performances through Sunday, May 13th. The epic story presented in Les Misérables School Edition is a great way to introduce children to the magic of musical theatre. Broadway’s legendary musical, originally adapted from Victor Hugo’s timeless novel, has been specially adapted to meet the needs of young performers. Relentless in its musical drive, Les Misérables School Edition is filled with powerful imagery of darkness and light, highlighting, throughout its dramatic action, the struggle inherent in the human condition and the indomitability of the spirit, despite great suffering. Set in 19th century France, this classic and poignant musical, tells the story of Jean Valjean, a strong-hearted man jailed for stealing a loaf of bread. As he struggles to make a new life for himself given his new found freedom, he must grapple with questions of faith, fatherhood and allegiance to the law.
