Gardening Tips For May

Warm weather means our gardens and landscapes are growing fast.

Here are some tasks to keep your landscape beautiful and productive:

Flowers: Time to plant summer blooming perennials and annuals

including plumbago, zinnias, angelonia, purslane, lobularia,

sunflowers, yellow bells, pride of Barbados, duranta and bat-faced

cuphea.

Vegetables: May is a great time to plant, from seed or nursery plants,

okra, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, winter squash, pumpkins, basil,

peppers, lima beans, eggplant, garlic chives and Malabar greens. If

you don’t want to dedicate an area of your yard, consider planting

here and there in your flowerbeds. Edible landscaping is a popular

new trend!

Lawns: Water 1/2 to 1” of irrigation per week. A rain gauge or straight

sided container (such as a tuna fish can) will help you know how long

to run your irrigation system to apply 1/2”.

Weeding: Hand pull or hoe weeds while they are still young or better

yet, maintain a 3” layer of mulch in all vegetable and flowerbeds to

deter weeds from getting a start.

Pruning: Remove spent blooms on spring and summer annuals to

promote new blooms.

Fertilizing: Fertilize flowerbeds and vegetable gardens w/slow release

organic fertilizer.

Water: Deep soakings between rain events is better than frequent

light sprinkling.

Birds: Spring migration continues until mid-May. Clean bird feeders!

Replace water in bird baths to avoid creating mosquito breeding

spots.

Prepare For Summer Heat Now!

We’re weeks away from sweltering temperatures, hurricane warnings and bug

invasions. Before summer hits, make sure you and your home are prepared:

Give Your Air Conditioner a Checkup

• Replace your air filter to make sure the whole system runs smoothly.

• Clear debris on or around your vents or exhausts and clean off any dirt

from the main unit outside.

• Install programmable thermostats.

Test for Ventilation Leaks

• First, look for actual leaks: drafts in your windows and doors.

• Check your attic insulation for leaks and gaps.

Set Up a Barrier for Bugs

• Check caulking around windows and doors, fix any drafts/gaps with

new weather stripping and caulking.

• Spray outdoor perimeter with a pesticide, along with baseboards, sinks,

windows and doors.

Change Your Ceiling Fan Direction

• Run Ceiling Fans Counter-Clockwise for Summer Savings.

Prevent Water Damage

• Make sure your windows and doors are properly sealed and caulked, too.

• Test gutters to look for water coming out of any places it shouldn’t.

• Inspect your roof (remove any debris and leaves while you’re up there).

Memorial Weekend Getaways

Here are some celebrations across America that offered something

special in honor of the Memorial Day holiday:

Palm Springs, Calif.: For Guaranteed Summer Weather

While most beach seasons are just beginning, Memorial Day marks the

end of bearable temps in the desert, so hotels and operators are running

specials for the holiday. Though other parts of California will be in the

midst of “May Gray” and “June Gloom,” Palm Springs still has nonstop

sunshine-plus dozens of vintage shops, acclaimed restaurants and an

enduring love for all things mid-century (its hotels and private homes offer

some of the best examples of 1950s modern architecture in the country).

Washington, D.c.: For Patriotism, Pomp And Circumstance

Washington D.C. is the most patriotic place to celebrate the holiday, with a

parade and plenty of pomp and circumstance taking place during special military

ceremonies. Arlington National Cemetery-which celebrated its 150 th anniversary

in May 2014-hosts a wreath-laying ceremony at 11 AM on Memorial Day at the

Tomb of the Unknowns accompanied by performances from the U.S. Navy Band.

Saint Louis: For The Ultimate Treasure Hunt

Don’t miss the largest flea market in the Midwest, Gypsy Caravan, an

annual Memorial Day event organized for the 44 th year by the St. Louis

Symphony Volunteer Association.

The Jersey Shore: For Family Fun And Rides Along The Iconic Boardwalk

Steel Pier, Atlantic City’s popular ocean side amusement park, debuted eight

new rides in 2013. Outside Atlantic City, check out the annual Wildwoods

International Kite Festival, the largest in North America, Friday thru Monday, an

event that starts Friday at noon with the “Unlocking of the Ocean” media event.

Austin: For Boating Season And Outdoor Fun

Head to Lake Travis to soak up some of Austin’s best weather of the year,

with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the eighties. Memorial Day

kicks off boating season here, so the place to be is the lake.

KISD Summer Band Camp to be Held

at Morton Ranch High School

The seventeenth annual summer band camp, offered to next year’s 7 th ,

8 th and 9 th grade KISD band students, will be held at Morton Ranch High

School July 15 th -19 th . The camp will include daily section rehearsals, full

band rehearsals and fun music based electives. Lunch is also part of the

camp. The cost of the camp is $130 and will include a t-shirt if registered

by June 5 th . All registrations after that date will need to include a late

registration fee of $25 totaling $155. Any registration request after June

28 th must be sent via email and if approved, payment MUST BE either

cash, money order or cashier’s check.

The camp concludes with the Grand Finale Concert on Friday morning

at 9 AM. After the concert, those students wishing to extend the fun a

little longer can join in the group’s optional trip to Typhoon Texas for an

additional $35 (park admission, meal, bus transportation and drinks are

included in price) for a total camp cost of $165 ($190 after June 5 th ). The

KISD JH Summer Band Camp has been a huge success each year and we

anticipate a large enrollment again this year.

Camp participants will audition for summer band camp placement as

soon as they arrive for the first day of camp. Students should prepare

major scales specific to the student’s instrument and an audition

etude, which can be downloaded from the webpage. Students will be

ability grouped with the number of bands being determined by total

enrollment for the camp. Registration Form, Audition materials and

Travel/Emergency Treatment Consent Form can be downloaded by

campers from the Katy ISD Fine Arts Webpage www.katyisd.org/dept/

finearts. An email confirmation is sent out upon receipt of registration

and follow up reminders from the camp coordinator will be sent before

the camp begins, so make sure your email address is clearly printed on

the registration form.

The camp provides an economical and convenient alternative to those

who may not have had a chance to attend another band camp over

the summer due to scheduling and/or costs. Participants will receive

top quality instruction on their instruments from our own great KISD

and Houston area Band Directors. Join us for the seventeenth annual

Katy ISD Junior High Summer Band Camp and keep your playing skills

sharp for the year! Camp brochures, with the registration form, will be

distributed to KISD band students by their schools’ directors. Camp

brochures can also be downloaded from the Katy ISD Fine Arts webpage.

Plan to register early in order to guarantee a spot! Again, registrations

requests made after June 28 th will need to follow special instructions

outlined earlier. If you have already registered and have not received

your confirmation email, contact kisdbandcamp2019@gmail.com to

make sure your registration has been received.

Katy ISD Represented at

2019 Texas Bluebonnet Awards Event

Each year 10 Texas library districts are represented at the Texas Library Association’s (TLA) annual conference and this year Katy Independent School

District librarian Diane Austin, as well as 4 th grader Charlotte Baker, will be representing District 8 in addition to Katy ISD’s Wolman Elementary

School. Charlotte will be a part of a student group who will be announcing the grand winner of the Texas Bluebonnet Award.

“I love the Texas Bluebonnet Program because not only are children motivated to read books but students have the opportunity to choose the

winner unlike many other publishing awards,” said Diana Austin, library media specialist at Wolman Elementary.

Twenty books are chosen each year for the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List. Schools and libraries around the state participate in the program,

encouraging students in grades 3 rd -6 th to read a minimum of five books from the list. In January, participating students all over the state of Texas

cast their vote for their favorite title. The author of the book receiving the most votes is the winner and is given their award at the Texas Bluebonnet

Luncheon.

Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Awards

Prestigious Recognitions

to Katy ISD Students

The artwork of 27 Katy Independent School District students has been recognized

by the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLS&R), with many of those creations

now advancing to Grand Prix Judging and to auction. Best of Show, Gold Medal

and Special Merit were among some of the prominent achievements of Katy ISD

art students who have worked tirelessly to perfect their masterpieces.

The HLS&R School Art Program provides students, Pre-K through 12 th grade, the

opportunity to compete in district shows, earn scholarships, travel to summer

workshops and display artwork at the Hayloft Gallery at the NRG Center for viewing.

The Grand Prix judging consists of all the 100+ school districts and private schools

that participate in the annual competition. Grand Prix selects which pieces of art

will be awarded the Grand Champion, Reserve Champion and Class Champions

recognitions. Those art pieces will then advance to the HLS&R Art Auction.

Angel Luo, Cinco Ranch High School, Best of

Show for artwork titled “Spirit”

Beck Beathard was named the Spelling Bee Runner-up

Scouting News

Ella Hummeldorf earned her Gold Award in Girl Scouts

Ella Hummeldorf, a Sophmore at Tompkins High School, has earned her Gold Award in Girl Scouts. Ella is a member of Troop 127007 and has been a

Girl Scout since she was in Kindergarten. For her project, Ella built garden boxes with the help of her brothers and a group of Boy Scouts from Troop

1103 for Goddard Preschool in Cinco Ranch NW. Her inspiration for the garden boxes was her grandfather who is currently in bad health. Obesity is a

growing problem in America and Ella is hoping the new generation of kids will make better choices. Her goal was to educate young children on the

importance of eating healthy and how vegetables play a big part in that. She wanted to teach them about vegetables in a fun way so she created the

garden boxes, supplied starter seeds and tools. She hopes they will have fun watching them grow and will teach future generations about growing

vegetables and healthy eating. Her brother, Henry Hummeldorf, was a recent contestant on MasterChef Junior so she enlisted his help with some

recipes. Together they created a fun cookbook for the kids and Henry talked to the children about the recipes and how to make vegetables fun. Here

is a photo of Ella and Henry teaching the children and introducing them to their new gardens.

National Scavenger Hunt Day May 24th

What is a Scavenger Hunt? A scavenger hunt is a game in which

individuals or teams seek to find a number of specific items or perform

tasks, as given in a list. The goal is either to complete the list first or to

complete the list in the most creative manner. This game is usually

played in a manner where what you are searching for requires you to go

to certain places, certain homes or certain parts of a location. Scavenger

Hunt Games are popular all over the world and are enjoyed by group

organizations, at Holidays and fun parties.

Scavenger Hunts can be set up for any age group with any type of theme.

There can be Holiday themes such as Halloween or Christmas, there can

be food themes such as scavenger hunts for food ingredients as in baking

a pie. There can be scavenger hunts pertaining to getting a certain thing

accomplished first.

For example: “Pot A Plant Theme” - This would be considered a task game and

an item game. You would be seeking items to perform a small task at the end.

Your list should include all the things to completely pot up a plant. Such as. ...

a 1. plant, 2. soil, 3. pot, 4. watering can with water in it, 5. fertilizer. You would

have to collect each of these things or find each of these things from different

sources. (And NO you cannot buy any from the store, that is cheating). Once

your team makes it back with all the items you would then start potting up

your plant. Once done, the first team to water the plant would be the winner.

On your mark.... get set.... GO!

Katy Heroes Honored

by Teenagers

Students from Tompkins High School, Tays Junior High

and Woodcreek Junior High, have gathered together to

honor a number of Katy teachers, coaches and community

leaders who are ‘heroes’ to the young people.

A special dinner and awards presentation was held by the

youth who are all members of The Church of Jesus Christ

of Latter-day Saints. Aged between 12 and 18, each of

them was inspired to choose one person who has had a

significant influence for good in their lives. The students

then personally invited their ‘hero’ to attend the dinner.

During the evening each of the youth gave a short speech

to introduce their hero and explain why they had had

such a significant impact on them.

Among the heroes was Danny Hill, Girls Program Director

at Albion Hurricanes FC. He was invited by Tompkins

Junior, Terin Graham. Terin also plays for the Tompkins

Varsity team, which is currently ranked number one in

the nation. She was thrilled to publicly thank Danny for

his incredible contribution to women’s soccer. Danny

commented, “I was very touched when Terin invited me to be honored at the dinner. The best part of our job is watching these kids grow into fantastic

young people. Terin always brings a smile to my face and when I stood there listening to her talk it gave me a great peace and understanding of why I

still do this job. Thank you Terin and family for believing in me all those years ago and your continued belief ever since.”

The purpose of the evening was to thank the many people in the community who sacrifice so much of their time and energy to guide and teach the

young people in Katy. Says Brad Tippetts, one of the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Katy, “As a parent and leader, it can be

a scary proposition to send our kids into a world that at times is full of anger and selfishness. That’s why we’re so grateful for the many good people out

there who share in the responsibility of helping our kids grow into good, honorable adults and care enough to help build the type of character that will

make them good citizens and strong community members.”

Many of the students invited teachers, some brought Scout Leaders and one young man even invited his mom along to be his hero. There on the night were

Shetye Cypher, Tina Fairwell, Leanda Hunt, Stephanie Lewis, Todd McVey, Donald Artley, Dianne Kuper, Monti Marquez, Danny Hill, Amy Wernig, Marianne

Hudspeth, Ryleigh Gilpin, Amanda Robinson, Stephanie Mead, Holly Datwyler Ben Allsop, Mike Tinnell, Ann Batten-Bishop, Stacey Levin and Allan Ray.

As well as hosting the dinner and each making a speech, the youth played instruments and sang a choral number for invited guests.
