August 2019 | Westlake/Westlake Forest


August 2019

WCIA Community Meeting

The August meeting of the homeowners of the Westlake and Westlake

Forest subdivisions (WCIA) will be held on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, at

the Community Center located at 19750 Franz Road, which is the corner

of Franz Road and Creek Meadow. The meeting will begin at 7 PM.

The meeting will include a homeowners’ forum which should begin

about 7:30 PM. Our deputy will, as always, be in attendance at this

meeting to answer the questions our residents have or have expressed

on social forums. You will have to attend the meeting the ask questions

of the Board or the deputy.

The executive meeting of the Westlake CIA Board of directors will be

held on Monday, August 19, 2019, at the Community Center on Franz

Road at 6:30 PM. A budget for each subdivision for 2020 will be reviewed

for finalization at that time. The Board will announce by September

whether or not there will be a homeowners’ association dues increase.

At this time the Board anticipates no increase.

Deed Restrictions

Deed restrictions for Westlake and Westlake Forest are available for your

review on our website at westlakecia.org. The policy for deed restrictions

violations is to send a courtesy notice, followed by a warning notice if

the violation is not cleared. If the violation is still not cleared, a fine of

$100 plus $25 per month for every month that the violation exists will be

assessed.

We have a small percentage of incorrigible offenders who continue

to frustrate their neighbors and receive an ever increasing number of

violations and fines. The vast majority of our residents maintain their

properties in good order. We thank you for taking pride in your home and

community.

Pools Closing for Season

The pools in both Westlake Forest and Westlake will close for the season

following the last day of swimming on August 13, 2019. Lifeguards are

not available after this time due to the start of the KISD calendar year.

Maintenance will begin at the Westlake and Westlake Forest pool on the

areas that need attention when the pools are closed.

Back to School at KISD

The start of school this year will be on Wednesday, August 14, 2019.

School buses will be running their regular schedules and parents are

asked to accompany elementary aged children to their school bus stop

in the mornings in order to prevent children from darting into the street

and other dangerous behavior. As a driver, be extra cautious at this time,

as children are returning to a restricted environment after a summer of

casual play and we must anticipate a child darting in front of our moving

vehicle anytime the buses are loading and unloading or children are

walking through the subdivisions. Drive under the speed limit when

children are present.

There is a tremendous fine for failure to stop for a loading/unloading

school bus. In the subdivisions, both sides of the street must stop and

wait for children while boarding or leaving the school bus. Our deputy

will be carefully patrolling where the school buses are traveling: exercise

great caution!

Come visit anytime from 6:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m.

and see what’s happening in our classrooms!

Parking in Neighborhoods

By now everyone is familiar with the Texas parking law. And most

residents are well aware of the flagrant violators of this state law. Tickets

will continue to be written to those who refuse to stop parking used

Westlake/Westlake Forest | August 2019 3


cars and junk vehicles on the public roadway. The Texas street parking

laws, for those who do not remember them, are listed on the homepage

of our website at www.westlakecia.org. We have noted the numerous

complaints from our homeowners and residents about the problems

navigating many of the streets and our deputy is doing what he can to

alleviate this.

Hurricane Awareness

Many different retail stores offer hurricane awareness brochures. These

can also be found online. In times of severe wind and rain, Westlake

and Westlake Forest usually lose power. Please plan for this and for

the possibility of a period of time without power. For those who have

experienced rain-flooding events in times of downpours, we will keep

you posted regarding FEMA, volunteer help groups, etc, through the info.

westlake@gmail.com email which you can subscribe to by sending an

email request, through our website and on next door where the option to

use that social media is available.

We usually see increased storm activity in August and September each

year. Be ready.

Upcoming Community Events

The First Tuesday evening of October will be National Night Out in

Harris County, Texas. Westlake Forest will be holding events which

include free barbeque, door prizes, information, mounted patrol, the

fire department, possibly a K-9 visit and visits from the command staff

of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. Circle that date on your calendar.

At the time of this writing, we do not know if we will hold a second NNO

celebration in Westlake. That decision will be driven by the number of

volunteers who want to participate from the Westlake subdivision. If no

celebration is held in Westlake, the families of Westlake will be invited to

attend the Westlake Forest celebration.

The Annual Meeting of the Homeowners of the Westlake Community

Improvement Association will be held the second week of November at

the Westlake Fire Station. We will publish the exact date in the October

and November newsletters. The decision of whether or not to expand

the pool hours will be based on the votes of the members who attend the

meeting and on the proxie votes. Expansion of the pool hours will mean

an increase in dues of $35 per household for 2020.

The first Saturday morning (December 7, 2019) in December will be

Breakfast with Santa in Westlake Forest. This includes a visit from Santa

Claus, free breakfast, gifts, snacks and crafts for the children. Plan to

bring your children to this special kick-off for the Christmas and Holiday

season.

AUGUST IS NATIONAL EYE EXAM MONTH

Healthy vision is part of overall health. Deteriorating vision can be an

early indicator of other health issues. Getting vision exams on a regular

schedule helps doctors to identify issues in their early stages.

Check with your optometrist to see when you are due for a comprehensive

vision exam. If you are experiencing symptoms, be sure to make an

appointment as soon as possible.

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.

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

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

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.

HOW PARENTS CAN PREPARE

FOR BACK TO SCHOOL TIME

By: Janelle Cox

Back to school time is always a big transition, not only for children but

for parents.

While children are filled with excitement and first-day jitters, parents are

filled with thoughts of “Am I prepared enough?” To help eliminate these

thoughts and help you and your child prepare for the new school year,

all you need is a little organization and forethought. Here are 10 back

to school tips to kick-start the new year and get you prepared for a fresh

start.

1. Get back into your sleep routine. To help eradicate those stressful

school mornings, set up a regular bedtime and morning time routine to

help prepare your child for school. Begin your usual school sleep routine

about a week or so before school starts.

2. Shop for school supplies together. To get your child excited about

starting a new grade, shop for supplies together. Allow them to pick out

their own backpack, lunchbox, etc. This is a great way to give them a little

bit of responsibility too!

3. Re-establish school routines. Have your child practice getting back

into the rhythm of their daily school routine. You can do this by having

them wake up at the same time every day and eat around the same time

they would at school. About a week or so before school starts, plan a

few outside activities where your child will have to leave and come home

around the same time they would if they were in school. This will help

them be rested and ready for the big day.

4. Set up a homework station. Sit down with your child and together

designate a time and place where he can do his homework each day. This

can be somewhere quiet like in the den or even in the kitchen while you

are preparing dinner. Make sure to choose a time where you are available

in case your child needs your help.

5. Prepare for the unexpected. Working parents know that it can be

difficult to find a sitter when your child is sick. Before school even begins,

it’s a good idea to have a sitter already lined up in case you get that phone

call home from the nurse saying your child is ill.

6. Make an after-school game plan. Make a plan for where your child will

go after school lets out for the day. Depending upon the age of your child,

figure out if they will go to a neighbor’s house, an afterschool program

or be allowed to stay home by themselves. This will help eliminate any

confusion during the first few weeks.

7. Turn off the TV and video games. For a lot of children summertime is

filled with endless video games and TV programs. Children are usually

in shock when they begin school and realize that six hours of their day

is going to spent learning and not playing games and watching TV. Ease

your child into the learning process by turning off the electrics and

encouraging them to read or play quietly.

8. Review school material and information. For most parents, schools

send home a packet with a ton of information regarding their child’s

new teacher, important dates to remember, emergency forms and

transportation routines. Make sure that you read through this information

carefully and mark down all important dates on your calendar.

9. Get organized. The best way to prepare for back to school time is to

be organized. With school comes a massive amount of paperwork,

which can consume your household. Designate a spot in your house

for homework, permission slips and any other school-related papers.

This can help eliminate all of that paper clutter and make your life less

stressful.

10. Get your child’s yearly checkup. School and germs go hand in hand,

so it’s best to get your child’s yearly checkup before school even starts.

Get any required vaccinations and ask your pediatrician the best ways

your child can stay healthy throughout the school year.

Through preparation and organization, you can ensure that your child

will have a smooth transition to the start of the new school year. By doing

so, you and your child can enjoy the rest of your summer break.

NATIONAL GOLF MONTH

During National Golf Month in August, golfers are encouraged to share

their experience and bring new golfers to the greens. August is the time

when courses offer discounts and when the driving ranges become a

flurry of activity. Drivers and practice greens get a workout while during

the height of the golfing season.

The modern game of golf may have originated in 15th century Scotland,

but it has a solid hold in the United States and around the world. The

oldest tournament takes place in Ayrshire, Scotland at Prestwick Golf

Club.

Whether played as a team sport or individual, National Golf Month

challenges us to take the time to show someone new to the sport

everything they need to know to get started. Whether it’s just addressing

the tee or putting or picking the right club, every new golfer needs

someone to guide them along the way.

The Professional Golfers’ Association of America (PGA) founded

National Golf Month in 1993 promoting the sport as family accessible

and open to all ages, genders and skill levels. The celebration grew

out of their charity event, National Golf Day, which takes place on a

different day every year.

NATIONAL IMMUNIZATION AWARENESS MONTH

National Immunization Month is in August. It’s also the beginning of

back-to-school preparations and a good time to make sure your children

are properly vaccinated before they head back to school. There is no one

preventive health measure more important than immunization. As the

World Health Organization notes, the international medical community

has endorsed the use of vaccines and immunization to prevent and

control a number of infectious diseases, as well as chronic diseases

caused by “infectious agents.” Vaccinating your child can avoid suffering

and death associated with afflictions like diarrhea, measles, pneumonia,

polio and whooping cough. The American Academy of Pediatrics says

vaccines are 99% effective. Every vaccine goes through a series of tests

before being approved to ensure safety. Vaccines are necessary to

prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Some diseases that many had

thought eradicated have reappeared, as polio did in Venezuela in 2018.

Vaccines are studied intensively by the FDA, the CDC and many other

organizations that vigilantly in keep watch over existing vaccines for

possible complications.

Herd immunity is when a certain percent of immunized people in a

community reaches a level where everyone (including those who are

too young or too sick to be immunized) get some degree of protection.

It’s important that as many people as possible get immunized. It’s very

risky to the health of other children to rely on herd immunity to protect

your non-immunized child. By forgetting or opting to skip booster

vaccinations, you are undercutting the effectiveness of herd immunity

for both your own family and the community at large.

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.

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.

For Information about the Katy Area Chamber of Commerce and its B2B

Expo, contact Matthew Ferraro, President/CEO, at 281-391-5289.

EAGLE SCOUT AWARD PRESENTED

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

Troop 73, Russell is one of only 6 percent of all Boy Scouts who attain the

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

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

earn his Eagle; Russell chose to build orchestra cases for the International

Leadership School of Katy. During Russell’s journey, he also achieved a

Gold Palm by completing an additional 10 merit badges in addition to

the 21 required to Eagle. Troop 73 is proud of Russell’s accomplishments.
