West Memorial Tiger Sharks

West Memorial Tiger Sharks finished out their swim season with a win in their division this year. The team was undefeated and took home the trophy

for their division. Please congratulate any team members you see for a great season. Well done.

Let’s talk about it….

The West Memorial Civic Association has a duty to enforce neighborhood

regulations. These typically include violations of deed restrictions,

collection of annual assessments and related fees. The HOA Board’s

authority is established in state law for the purpose of maintaining

property values and quality of life. Enforcement proceeds along a defined

path that, to be fair, must be consistently applied. The process often

begins with a letter to the homeowner explaining the violation, which if

ignored, may eventually end up in a lawsuit. Fortunately, most violations

are resolved quickly following receipt of a letter. In rare circumstances the

Board sends the matter to its attorneys. The attorneys’ first objective is to

negotiate a settlement. Failing that, the Board must consider a lawsuit.

The Board positively hates to involve attorneys because its objective is

compliance not penalty. The attorney path is costly and slow and the fees

must eventually be collected from the homeowner, our neighbors. While a

case is pending the problem is not going away. The Board is eager to meet

with homeowners to negotiate a compliance plan but that process must be

initiated by the homeowner. A reasonable solution can usually be agreed,

especially when illness, loss of employment or other calamity is involved. The

Board meetings are held on the 4 th Tuesday of each month (excluding May &

December) beginning at 7 PM at the community clubhouse on Kingsland Blvd.

Home Improvements

Please remember that any exterior change to your home requires approval

from the Homeowners Association prior to performing the improvement

and/or addition. You can find the governing rules and application process

on the Association website at www.westmemorial.org or by contacting

management at thenderson@highsierramanagement.com.

Seeking Volunteers

We are seeking volunteers for several upcoming projects. More

homeowner participation would be appreciated. Please email

volunteers@westmemorial.org for more information or questions.

West Memorial Park

Our community park is located at 22415 Kingsland and is open to all West

Memorial residents for outdoor activities. It has playground equipment

and a large sheltered pavilion.

SOLICITING

Soliciting is prohibited in West Memorial Subdivision. Please make sure

you have a sign posted on your residence for no soliciting. If you are

approached by a solicitor, please call the Constable’s office at 281-463-

6666. Continue to call this number if you see suspicious person or vehicles.

STRAY ANIMALS

Do not hesitate to call Harris County Animal Control at 281-999-3191, if

you see animals that are roaming the neighborhood unleashed.

West Memorial Constables

Please make sure you call and report any suspicious behavior. Please file a report for

any stolen or missing property we need to know what is going on in the neighborhood.

Our Constables patrol our subdivision 24 hours a day/seven days a week. Please call

them at 281-463-6666 to report any disturbance or to request vacation patrols.

West Memorial website

www.westmemorial.org is the address for West Memorial information on the

internet. The web site contains pool information, Board member contacts

and complete documentation of your deed restrictions. It also contains

neighborhood information, including schools, security, recreation and local

worship centers. Check it out, you might find something you have been looking for.

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.

Katy Chamber B2B Expo Hits the

Mark for Business

‘Unique opportunity,’ ‘educational,’ ‘great networking event,’ ‘fun,’ ‘wellorganized,’

‘a success,’ ‘informative’… not a bad list of descriptions for

any event! And, yet, those were some of the comments from participants

about the first Katy Area Chamber of Commerce Business to Business

(B2B) Expo, an event that featured 43 exhibitors and 200 attendees.

Home is where the heart is.

Not to mention all your stuff.

Thanks to its success, the Katy Chamber’s B2B Expo probably will land on

the radar for many businesses looking to grow, network and learn about

Katy area businesses. The B2B Expo was held May 16 th at the Wyndham

Houston West - Energy Corridor and organized by Chamber Board of

Directors Margaret Laney and Cristy Fontanilla. The expo included an array

of companies, products and services such as lending facilities, hospitals,

jewelers, the Katy YMCAs, internet companies, graphic designers, storage

facilities, marketers, restaurants, higher education, non-profits and many

more. Attendees could visit business exhibits to network, make connections

and learn how the products/services can assist their own businesses.

The event also featured an information-packed luncheon that provided

valuable intelligence on access to capital issues (provided by the US Small

Business Association) and procurement/purchasing tips from a panel featuring

some the area’s largest employers: Katy ISD, BP, Houston Community College

and Houston Methodist West Hospital. All told, the four-hour B2B Expo/

luncheon seemed to provide the right balance of networking and information.

Leader) to change the world. Nationally, our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy”

Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy,

building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Chartered by GSUSA to provide Girl Scouting locally, Girl Scouts

Russell Leach of Katy has earned the Boy Scouts of America’s highest

advancement award, the Eagle Scout Award and was recognized in

a ceremony on May 5, 2019. A member of Memorial Lutheran Church

Eagle rank. Each candidate must earn 21 merit badges and successfully

complete a community, church or synagogue-related service project to
