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 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

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

Upcoming Community Events

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

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

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.

Recipes & Gardening Tips
Dark Chocolate And Cinnamon
You could make this on
National Frozen Custard Day August 8th!
2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1 ounce high-quality dark chocolate (85%), finely chopped
5 egg yolks
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, plus more for dusting
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.
You could make this on National Creamsicle Day August 14th!
2 cups ginger ale, chilled
2 cups orange soda, chilled
1/2 cup milk
4 scoops orange sherbet
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
Stir ginger ale, orange soda and milk together in a pitcher.
Divide orange sherbet and vanilla ice cream equally between 4
glasses. Pour ginger ale mixture over ice cream into each glass.
• 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
• 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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
