WHY SHOULD I PAY MY HOA DUES ON TIME?

1. If you pay your dues by January 31 st you are OK!

2. After January 31 st , you will receive a certified 209 letter that will cost

you $25.

3. After March 1 st , a Demand Letter will be sent to you by the HOA lawyer.

This will cost you $95.

4. If you ignore the Demand Letter, a lien will be placed against your

house. This will cost you $210 to file plus a charge of $150 to inform you

of the lien and another $210 to remove it if you pay.

5. If you have ignored all the above, the HOA lawyer will send you a Last

Chance Letter at a cost to you of $523.

6. The next step is to file for foreclosure on your house. The fees run around

$2,500 and are charged to you and you lose your house!

7. At this point not paying can cost you a minimum $3,713 plus the original

dues of $1,265 if you decide to keep your house.

8. There is no reason to let the above happen! The HOA (832-600-4142)

can set you up on a payment plan and avoid the above from happening.

You can also pre pay for the next year.

YOU HAVE OPTIONS!!

SYDNEY HARBOUR LANDSCAPING UPDATE

For those of you that missed the annual HOA meeting last month, here

an update on what the Landscape Committee has done in 2018 and what

the plans are for 2019.

2018: • All perimeter endcaps were updated with new plans and new

plants.

• One of the older Mexican Fan palms on San Souci died and was replaced

with a Sabal palm. We also added a smaller Canary Island palm in the

same bed.

• 24 Esperanzas were added throughout the community for nice color all

summer.

2019: • The interior endcaps and the endcap by the gazebo will be

updated with new plans and new plants to match the perimeter endcaps

that were installed last year.

• The 12 beds on Circular Quay will be re-furbished to match the existing

landscaping.

• The community is mulched twice a year and the color beds are changed

out three times a year.

• Palms trees are all trimmed once a year.

2020:• Both entrances will be re-designed for impressive entrances

subject to Board approval.

• Landscaping is an expensive and ongoing part of maintaining a beautiful

community. This investment in your community not only improves and

maintains your property value but adds to personal enjoyment of the

common areas by everyone.

Sydney Harbour is a unique and beautiful community. It takes not only

the efforts of the Board, the Landscape Committee and the maintenance

company to maintain this community, it also takes the effort and

commitment of the residents: homeowners and renters alike, who live

here. Maintaining your individual properties, including not only your

landscaping but your home, is essential for an outstanding community.

Picking up after your dogs is ESSENTIAL as well as picking up litter as

you enjoy your walk around this beautiful community. An outstanding

community takes the efforts of us all. Let’s keep Sydney Harbour beautiful!

Cy-Woods Student

Earns Prestigious Speech

And Debate Accolades

Cypress Woods High School junior Angela Zhong recently earned two national honors, as she was named

among six finalists for the National Speech & Debate Association (NSDA) Exemplary Student Service Award

and was selected to the 12-member USA Debate Development Team. Nominated by Cypress Woods Debate

and World Geography Teacher Jacob Koshak, Zhong was selected as a finalist from more than 120,000

student members in NSDA, the national honor society for speech and debate participation. The award was

introduced in 2017 and given to a student who serves his or her school, community, city, region or state using

skills honed through speech and debate. Zhong served as a student representative in the human trafficking branch to the NewGen Peacebuilders for

the International Rotary District 5890 Conference for Peace and Conflict Resolution. She also helped organize drives for school supplies after Hurricane

Harvey. Zhong is also part of the 2018-2019 USA Debate Development Team. The group of students will train and practice with USA Debate coaches,

alumni and the 2018-2019 USA Debate Team, a 12-member team of NSDA’s best student debaters chosen to represent the United States in international

competition. Six Texans were named to the two debate teams, with Zhong being CFISD’s lone representative selected.

Cy-Woods Student Advances To

State Science And Engineering Fair

Cypress Woods High School junior Govind Chada placed second at the 60 th annual Science and

Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH) for a project showcasing his research on novel methods for early

detection of lung cancer using machine learning. More than 1,000 students participated in the fair,

which was held in February at the George R. Brown Convention Center for students in Harris County

and 22 other surrounding counties. Chada’s project, titled “Using 3D Convolutional Neural Networks

for Classification of Lung Nodules and Early Detection of Lung Cancer,” competed in the Computer

Science category alongside more than 30 other projects that advanced to SEFH after winning at the

district level.

For his second-place finish, Chada advanced to the Texas Science and Engineering Fair, held in

March at Texas A&M University in College Station. Chada credits his success to strong support and

encouragement he receives from his teachers as well as extracurricular opportunities at Cypress

Woods such as Computer Science and Future Business Leaders of America.

Winning students at the state level will have the opportunity to advance to the Intel International

Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and participate in the Governor’s Science and Technology Champions Academy. The fair is the world’s largest

pro-collegiate science competition, with approximately 1,800 high school students across more than 70 countries and territories showcasing their

research. It will be in May in Phoenix, Arizona. The academy is a week-long, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) summer camp that

helps students explore practical applications and provide exposure to career options.

again and the folks at St. Aidan’s have another great program planned.

Scheduled for the week of July 8 th -12 th , St. Aidan’s usually hosts about 80

children. This year’s theme is ROAR: Life is wild. God is Good. We usually

have Bahama Bucks on the last day. That is always a big treat for our

students. And, last year, we hosted Wild Things Zoofari. They brought

a wallaby, a toucan, a lemur and a hedgehog. Everyone really enjoyed

that.” Cost of VBS is $30. Scholarships are available for families in-need.

New for this year, we are adding Triumph Sports so our students will

have a full-day option. From 12-4 PM, Triumph will run a Bible-based

sports camp. Participants will play dodgeball, kickball, capture the flag,

basketball, soccer and more. Early registration for this afternoon session

is $105 before June 1 st . After June 1 st , cost goes up to $115. Registration

Residential & Commercial

Family Owned ! & Operated

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.
