The three-day event at the Berry Center allowed all eighth-grade students to interact with more than 50 Houston businesses in a variety of industries. Each day began with a morning welcome session for all students in the Berry Center arena. Students were then divided in three groups that rotated between industry presentations in the conference center, a soft-skills demonstration in the arena and exhibitors in the secondfloor concourse. Students were divided up by four endorsement tracks (STEM, business and industry, public services and arts and humanities) that they selected beforehand to receive a more specialized experience. While exploring career stations on the concourse, students spoke with company employees and industry representatives to learn more about their businesses. Speakers in different career fields closed each day. They included KPRC Channel 2 anchor Rachel McNeill, a Cypress Creek High School graduate and Heritage Texas Properties realtor associate Lily Jang, a Langham Creek High School graduate. “Our eighth-grade students are fortunate to be able to participate in an interactive experience that provides them with information on a variety of careers and local employers from the greater Houston area,” said Dr. Linda Macias, associate superintendent of curriculum and instruction and accountability. “This will assist them in making informed decisions when selecting an endorsement and course selections for high school.” March 2018 | Villages of Cypress Lakes Lakeside

PREPARE FOR TAX SEASON 2018 Here are 10 ways to get a jump start on your taxes now: • Figure out which forms you’ll need: There are many different tax forms for different financial situations. If you’re unsure which tax form to use, visit the IRS’s website or consult a professional. • Keep all receipts in the same place: If you’re someone who itemizes deductions, it is important to store all of your receipts together in the same place. If you lose any, it could cost you. • Store all tax returns together: Since we often have to reference the previous year’s return when preparing the current one, it’s a good idea to make sure you store them all in the same place. • Review/revise your W-4: If you’ve experienced any life changes from the previous year (adding or losing any family members), ask your employer if you can review your W-4. The IRS recommends doing this every year. • Do your research: If you plan to do your taxes on your own, make sure you educate yourself about the deductions you’re entitled to. If you plan to hire someone, check around and make sure they’re reputable. • Save your money: Unless you fill out the 1040EZ form and mail it in yourself, it’s going to cost you money to file your taxes. • Check your deductions: If you’ve had any major life events this year, you may be entitled to some sizable deductions. It’s a good idea to research all possible deductions to avoid overpaying your taxes. • Track all charitable donations: Charitable donations are taxdeductible, so if you have any monthly or one-off donations, make sure to keep track so that you can deduct these expenses from your taxes.
