GET READY FOR GRANDPARENTS DAY 2018
SEPTEMBER 9 TH !
HISTORY, ACTIVITIES AND GIFT IDEAS
Grandparents Day is always celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day.
Take the time to honor your grandparents with these ideas!
WHY DO WE CELEBRATE GRANDPARENTS DAY?
History of Grandparents Day: Marian McQuade hoped to establish a national day that
would honor grandparents and in 1970 she began a campaign to do so. McQuade raised
awareness about senior citizens throughout the 1970s. In 1978, President Jimmy Carter
declared the first Sunday after Labor Day to be National Grandparents Day. Each year,
the president issues a proclamation to keep the tradition going.
Grandparents Day has both an official flower and song. The official flower is the forgetme-not,
and the song is Johnny Prill’s “A Song for Grandma and Grandpa.” Both were
chosen by the National Grandparents Day Council.
GRANDPARENTS DAY ACTIVITIES AND GIFTS
Let’s appreciate all the joy and wisdom that grandparents bring to our lives!
Many schools celebrate Grandparents Day with special activities or assemblies.
Students often invite their grandparents into the schools for a day and the
children find creative ways to celebrate their grandparents. Some towns will
also hold special events for Grandparents Day.
Most grandparents don’t care what activity they do-they just want to spend time with
their grandchildren. Maybe ask your grandparents to show you one of their favorite
hobbies. Many National Parks hold special Grandparents Day events and it can be fun
to spend time with your grandparents exploring nature. If your grandparent would
prefer a calm day, ask them to show you their favorite movie. No matter what, the best
Grandparents Day activity involves you and your grandparents together, celebrating
your family and each other.
Some families get cards or gifts for the grandparents on Grandparents Day.
Most grandparents would say that a handwritten card is the perfect gift.
Another great gift is simply to take your grandparents somewhere fun. Maybe your
grandfather loves baseball, so you can get him tickets to see his favorite team with
you. Let your grandparents teach you a skill, like how to fish. Or, perhaps it would be
fun to make arts and crafts together.
Maybe you can bring them some treats, like Grandpa’s Banana Bread or Grandmother’s
Blueberry Cake, both made by talented grandparents. Or, try making one
of the dishes that your grandparents usually make for you.
On Grandparents Day, it really is the thought that counts-just make sure your
grandparents know that you’re thinking of them.
What’s your favorite way to celebrate Grandparents Day? Let us know below,
and happy Grandparents Day!

When a mailbox is put into use for the purposes of sending and receiving
mail, it becomes federal property.
Mailbox tampering is considered any act that interferes with another
person’s letter box or other receptacle. This can include:
• destruction of the mailbox itself
• theft of mailbox contents
• the placement of items in a mail receptacle by persons
other than postal employees
• any action intended to obstruct or damage mail or mailbox property
In short, anyone, other than mail recipients and postal employees,
should NOT touch a mailbox or its contents.
BE AWARE OF THEFT POTENTIAL
Many of us have a habit of leaving the garage door open when we are
working or relaxing in the backyard. Unfortunately, people in virtually
every neighborhood lose property to opportunistic thieves this way
every year. Bicycles and power tools are just a few of the commonly
stolen things and keep in mind that it only takes a matter of seconds
for something of significant value to “walk away.” Please keep those
doors down when you are not in eyesight of the garage.
HARRIS COUNTY ALARM DETAIL
In order to increase compliance and spread awareness, our office is
requesting your assistance in informing residents in your community
through your HOA newsletter or your scheduled HOA meetings of the need
to obtain a permit for operating an alarm system, residential or business,
within unincorporated Harris County. Many residents and businesses are
unaware of the requirement to obtain an alarm permit once an alarm
system has been installed and activated by the alarm company. Alarm
systems are established and defined in the Local Government Code 233
(subchapter D), as well as the authority to regulate, adopt rules and im-

pose penalties for unpermitted locations. Obtaining the required permit
will avoid the issuance of a citation and excessive false alarm fees. The
fee for current permit issuance is $35 with a yearly renewal fee of $10. All
permit fees are waived for senior citizens 65 years or older. Under current
guidelines, a permitted location is allowed five (5) free false alarms annually.
Any subsequent false alarms during your permitted year are subject
to a $75 fine that is billed to the permit holder’s address. If a site has an
active alarm system, yet does not have a permit to operate such alarm, a
false alarm may result in a Class C citation, which could range up to $500.
Should you require a copy of the permit application form or would like
to review the regulations regarding permit requirements, you maydo so
by visiting the Harris County Sheriff’s Office website at www. hcso.hctx./
net. The application can be printed from the website, then completed
and mailed to our office with the applicable fees. We are currently in
the planning stages of making the application and payment process
available on-line for the convenience to the public. Should you have
any questions, please contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Alarm
Detail at 713-755-4600 M-F, 8 AM - 5 PM.
SCOOP YOUR PET’S POOP
Please remember to be respectful of your neighbors’ yards and the
community grounds. When you take your pet for a walk, come prepared
with a scooper and a recycled grocery bag or anything else. If your pet
poops during your walk, please scoop and trash. It may not be the most
fabulous way to walk your pet, but it does show that you respect your
fellow neighbors’ and our beautiful community.
PET ID TAGS
Folks - as soon as the vet gives your young pets their Rabies shot remember
to get their ID tags. The Rabies tag lists the name, phone number and address
of the vet. So! All you need to do is put the Rabies tag onto the pet’s
collar and leave it there all the time. That way, if the pet gets loose, anyone
finding him or her can look at the tag to see the vet’s phone number and
call to report the lost animal. Better yet, add another tag to your pet’s collar
that lists the dog or cat’s name and your own phone number or address. You
can get these from any pet store. When a pet has these but goes astray,
anyone finding it can call you and you can go get him or her right away.
HARRIS COUNTY LEASH LAW
Animals that are not properly restrained pose a threat to all our residents.
While you may know your pet is friendly, an animal running at
someone who is walking by is very scary for that person. Many children
are afraid of animals and become frightened, which could result in the
child getting hurt trying to avoid the animal.
Harris County Animal Control advises, “All dogs and cats must be kept
under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas.
The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep
any unlicensed dog or cat, nor to allow any dog or cat to become a stray.”
Restraint is defined as “the control of a dog or cat under the following
1. When it is controlled by a line or leash not more than six (6) feet in
length, if the line or leash is held by a human being, who is capable of
controlling or governing the dog or cat in question
2. When it is within a fully enclosed vehicle
3. When it is on the premise of the custodian and the animal does not
have access to sidewalk or street.”
While it may be nice to have your animal out in the yard while you work
or play, it is against the law, unless the animal is properly restrained.
Let’s all help keep our community a safe and comfortable place for
all our residents by being responsible pet owners. This will not only
protect anyone who may be walking or bicycling in the area, but also
the pet owner who could be held legally responsible or possibly sued
for failing to properly restrain their pet.

restrained please contact:

STEPS FOR HAVING A
GREAT LABOR DAY
1. Have a good old-fashioned last summer fling. Take
yourself, your family and friends to your town’s parade.
Then go home or to your favorite park and stage
the biggest, best barbecue of the summer.
2. Sit down after your fling and give some thought to
labor - especially yours.
3. Start doing something about that career change
you’ve been pondering. Schedule some informational
interviews or sign up for a class in your chosen
4. Find some direction if your thoughts are still vague.
Make an appointment with a counselor organize a
brainstorming session with like-minded friends or just
gather up a few good books on fields that interest you.
5. Take some time to appreciate your work if you
enjoy what you do and pat yourself on the back for
a job well done.
6. Go out and find yourself a hobby if you think you
like your work a little too much. Look for balance.
And remember the words on one Mathew Maguire
banner: “Eight Hours for Work, Eight Hours for Rest,
Eight Hours for Recreation!”
All Americans! When thinking of today’s work force,
think of your Armed Forces. They may not be in an
office, but they still work.
Enjoy! Enjoy your family and show them your love
everyday ... not just for today.

The CFISD police department has increased its number of commissioned
police officers from 86 in 2017 to 108 for 2018-2019. The department
will also implement three K-9 units trained in narcotics and nitrate
detection. Two police officers will transition into mental health officer
positions to assist the guidance and counseling and psychological services
departments in addressing mental health concerns on campuses.
Safety and security upgrades funded by the 2014 Bond Program continue
to roll out at campuses, including secured entry vestibules, bullet-resistant
glass, additional security cameras and emergency call stations.
Panic buttons will be installed in all portable buildings in 2018-2019.
All students in grades 6-12 will be required to wear a student ID badge
during the instructional day and will join elementary students in
wearing the badges on board school buses. All school visitors will be
distinguished by a visitor badge issued at check-in.
Backpacks worn by secondary students on school property are required
to be clear backpacks. Belongings carried inside or outside of the
backpack are limited to no more than two non-transparent 6- by 9-inch
purse(s) or similar bag(s). Approved extracurricular bags including
instrument cases are permitted in the building but must be stored in
respective areas during the instructional day. Visitors to Cy-Fair FCU and
Pridgeon stadiums in 2018-2019 will be required to limit bags to clear
bags or a non-transparent 6-by-9-inch purse or similar bag.
All campuses will implement procedures for limiting entry points for faculty,
students and visitors. The district will also continue to explore the possibility
of identifying exit-only doors and removing door handles on certain doors.
Food deliveries for students will be prohibited by fast food delivery drivers.
Identification and Intervention
Campuses will continue to advertise the Cy-Fair Tipline for students,
an internal and anonymous reporting system. A visible button will
be added to each campus website for easy sharing with the CFPD
and campus administration. The CFPD will continue to work with the
Houston Regional Intelligence Service Center to identify potential threats
on social media.
Two mental health intervention teams, each consisting of two licensed
professional counselors, a licensed specialist in school psychology and
a mental health school resource officer, have been developed to assist
students, administration and parents in developing a positive and proactive
plan for mental health. All teachers, counselors, district and campus
administrators, transportation and community programs staff will undergo
mental health assessment training prior to the start of the school year.
All elementary and secondary counselors will be trained on completing
threat assessment interviews.
CFISD’s school safety and security committee will meet three times per
year and provide updates and reports to the Board of Trustees twice a year.
All campuses will continue to implement and practice emergency operations
plans, based on a template provided by the Texas School Safety
Center. All campus and district administrators will be trained in the Standard
Response Protocol and Standard Reunification Method prior to the
start of the school year.
All staff members will receive active shooter training prior to the start of the
school year, while all CFPD officers are required to complete active shooter
trainings such as ALERRT and ERASE as well as crisis intervention training.
A mental health crisis response team consisting of licensed behavior
health professionals has been formed to respond during critical incidents.

HOW TO CELEBRATE READ A BOOK DAY
Read a Book Day comes to us every September 6 th . It may seem strange
to celebrate an activity that plenty of us enjoy many, if not most, days
of the year. But it never hurts to indulge in something extra to make a
cherished activity more enjoyable. You can read outside, enjoy a snack,
reflect on what a favorite book means to you and more. Here are five
ideas to celebrate Read a Book Day.
Read a Book Day fortunately coincides with a time of year that for much
of the globe brings pleasant weather. Late summer often provides the
right amount of sun and heat, begging a reader to bring books outside.
Granted, that’s a bit difficult for those of us who have to spend prime
daylight hours at work or in school, but you can always sneak some
reading time in the early morning, late afternoon or evening. Take your
book to the beach, an outdoor table, the porch or anywhere else that
makes your day of reading a little more special.
Enjoy a Book With Good Food (or a Drink)
C.S. Lewis said that “Eating and reading are two pleasures that combine
admirably.” We might take this as a cue for our own Read a Book Day
celebration. There are some things to consider, though. I, for one, traditionally
have trouble finding the right food to eat while reading (fruit like
grapes and strawberries wet my fingers and the pages and large meals
involving fork and knife make holding the book open unwieldy). But for
Read a Book Day, I might put those past failures behind me. Baked goods
like cookies and pastries make for great company, while coffee and tea
are always enhancements to a good story. Heck, it’s the summer. You
might even celebrate the day with a glass of wine or a special cocktail.
Share a Quote or Reflection on Social Media
Many a book goes unread because it gets lost in the noise. It can be
hard to know what’s worth our attention in the dizzying selection of
books we have available and one of the most important resources we
have as readers is a good recommendation. You can celebrate reading
by excerpting a favorite quote from a book and sharing it on Facebook
or Twitter. If you want to go the extra mile, dress up a favorite title for
a photo on Instagram and caption it with why it means something to
you. Picking the right book intimidates more people than you think
and you never know who you’re helping and who might add your
recommendation to their reading list.
Go Outside of Your Typical Selection Habits
Some readers want to own their books and love bookstores. Some readers
prefer the different selection and freedom of a library. Others prefer shopping
online. All of these habits are great, but it can be rewarding to try something
new. Does your community have a used bookstore? There’s a lot that might
surprise you, especially if you’re used to going to Barnes & Noble. Do you
like to shop online for books? There are plenty of places where you can get
old, unusual, rare or interesting editions that the major vendors won’t have.
Plus, it always pays to visit your local library. A little difference can go a long
way in reminding you of the wide cultural world of books.
Ask Someone for a Recommendation
Celebrating books goes the other way, too. It’s always good to make
something solitary, like reading, more social. A good way to do this is to
reach out to someone who could give you a recommendation. People
are always happy to share their favorite titles and it’s a nice way to
reconnect with someone over books. After all, a book’s very purpose
is to connect us better to the world in the first place.

GARDEN TIPS FOR SEPTEMBER
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. Follow up with a dose
of fertilizer the first week of September.
• Plants come out of summer rest and go crazy. Insect populations explode as we
get into cooler temperatures. Diseases that have been dormant wake up.
- Citrus, croton, avocado and mango are susceptible to spider mites and thrips.
Discourage them with a strong jet of water from a hose directed to the
undersides of the leaves.
- Hibiscus, citrus, palms, gardenia and ixora are susceptible to scale and mealybug.
• Winter vegetable gardens and perennials get planted.
• Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies.
• Fire ants baits should be put out in September-October to lessen the number
of eggs that make it to Spring.
• St. Augustine grass gets its fall fertilizer during September. Continue to mow at
maximum height. You want to leave a lot of leaf surface to produce carbohydrate
reserves for the winter.
• Keep an eye out for sod webworms. First sign of them is grass that appears to stop
growing. You need to get them early for biological controls to work. When the
caterpillars are only 1/4 inch, Bacillus thuringiensis applications can slow them.
Bt is a bacteria that works on the caterpillars’ digestive systems and makes them
stop feeding. Do the application late in the day. The larvae feed at night and you
want them to get nice fresh Bt.
• When the heat and drought end, the weather could bring brown patch disease in the
St. Augustine grass. Watch for yellowish spots if the nights drop into the 60’s and days
stay in the 80’s.
• Get any pruning of hedges and such done now. You want the flush of new growth
to be hardened-off before the end of October. Tree pruning should be put off
until winter, when the trees are dormant.
• Pre-emerge herbicide applications targeting annual bluegrass and the earliergerminating
winter broadleaf weeds needed to be put out starting in mid-August.

NAVIGATING UNEASY RELATIONS
Figuring out how to handle strained relationships
is hard. Emotions can become tumultuous.
Opinions can harden. How are we
supposed to live out our faith? Loving others
can seem disconcerting, confusing and just
plain difficult. Sometimes we can even forget
our Christian calling, simply dismissing or
degrading those whom we consider “other.”
You know, . . . THOSE People, THAT Person.
How can we better handle these difficulties?
In this journey, we will gain new insights into
the challenges of dealing with differences between
people. Plus, 12 principles will emerge
about loving God, others and self. Besides increasing
self-awareness through assessments,
questions and discussion, we will become
more intentional in action.
WHEN? EIGHT Thursday Evenings, 7-8:30 PM
