GARAGE SALES

MPCA would like to suggest that garage sales be conducted the first Friday

and Saturday of each month. This will eliminate the many signs that are out

each week and also makes for a stronger turn out. Most area communities

only allow sales twice a year. Memorial Parkway could be known for its

“Once a Month” garage sales. Do not attach your garage sale signs to the

STOP signs, as it is against the law and the County can issue citations for

this. If a sign is on a public right of way, like the esplanades), they may be

subject to fines of $500-$1,000 per occurrence per day. We also ask that

you do not post your signs on the property of another resident. When your

sale is over, please go back and pick up all of your signs.

Recipes & Gardening Tips

You could make this on

National Frozen Custard Day August 8th!

INGREDIENTS:

2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup milk

3/4 cup white sugar

1 ounce high-quality dark chocolate (85%), finely chopped

5 egg yolks

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, plus more for dusting

DIRECTIONS:

Whisk cream, milk, sugar and cocoa powder in a saucepan over

medium heat until the mixture is thoroughly combined and the sugar

has dissolved. Bring almost to a simmer and stir in dark chocolate

until melted. Whisk egg yolks into the cream mixture and cook until

batter is slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a container,

cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 6 hours.

Stir cinnamon into chilled custard batter and freeze in an ice cream

machine following manufacturer’s instructions. Sprinkle frozen

custard with more cinnamon to serve.

2 cups orange soda, chilled

1/2 cup milk

Garden Tips

For August

• 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.

• Wait until November to plant petunias and pansies.

• Chinch bug damage is obvious now. You will have

areas of thin and/or dead turf where they weren’t

brought under control. There is a new generation going

now. This batch causes the most damage. Use Dursban

to stop the damage.

• Until the weather gets back to the 80’s, St. Augustine

grass grows slowly. If you fill in with sod, don’t expect a

fast turnaround. The sod may look like it’s not growing

while it puts down roots. You will need to water the

new sod often and deeply to get it started but this also

creates a disease environment. Water early so the sun

can dry the turf.

• Now is a good time to work new beds. Till them up,

add organic material, mix it in, then let them cure for

a month or so. Add in any amendments like micronutrients.

Keep the beds moist so the microorganisms

have a favorable environment.

KATY ISD OPENS BUS DRIVING PARENTS PROGRAM

With a nationwide shortage of bus drivers, the demand for field trip

drivers is at an all-time high. To combat this problem, Katy Independent

School District is inviting parents, grandparents and guardians of District

students to apply to become a BDP - Bus Driving Parent.

“Whether you’re saving for your child’s college fund, looking to

supplement your income or just want to play a crucial part in our Katy

ISD community, this is your opportunity,” said Executive Director of Katy

ISD Transportation Department Dr. Bill Wood. “Best of all you choose

when you work,” added Wood.

Bus Driving Parents will have the opportunity to further their role in their

student’s education and drive their student’s school on field trips. BDP’s

will be vetted and trained through Katy ISD, as well as be compensated for

the time they drive. Once they’ve earned their Commercial Driver’s License

(CDL), completed training and earned driving hours, BDP’s will be able to

drive students to field trips as often as they want. While the training upfront

can take time, Bus Driving Parents will help to provide an incredible service

to the district and expand learning experiences for students. To apply and

get more information, visit http://bit.ly/RollWithKatyISD.

TWENTY-FOUR KATY ISD SCHOOLS EARN

TEXAS HONOR ROLL DISTINCTION

What better way for Katy Independent School District to end the 2018-

19 school year! Out of its 65 campuses, Katy ISD is proud to announce

that 24 of its schools were named a Texas Honor Roll School by the

Educational Results Partnership (ERP).

The 2018-19 Texas Honor Roll includes:

Elementary: Alexander, Creech, Griffin, Holland, Kilpatrick, Randolph,

Shafer, Stanley, Williams, Wilson and Wolman.

Junior High: Beck, Beckendorff, Katy, McMeans, Memorial Parkway,

Seven Lakes, Tays and WoodCreek.

High School: Cinco Ranch, Mayde Creek, Seven Lakes, Taylor and

Tompkins.

After an extensive analysis of student data, ERP found that these Katy ISD

schools were clear leaders in getting students to grade level and beyond.

The 2018-19 Texas Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle

and high schools that consistently demonstrate high levels of student

academic achievement, improvement in student outcomes over time and

a closing of the achievement gaps. For high schools, the Texas Honor Roll

recognition includes measures of college readiness. This year, the program

recognized 855 higher performing schools across the state. These schools

become an accepted example to other school districts seeking to learn

and replicate the best practices employed at these campuses. Katy ISD

schools will be provided with a banner to display at their campus.
