BEAT THE HOLIDAY WEIGHT

Mashed potatoes, homemade apple pie, stuffing, hot dinner rolls with

melted butter, creamed corn, green bean casserole, salad with all the

fixins’ and of course the main dish - the BIRD. All of this equals at least

2,000+ calories. What is a holiday food enthusiast to do? Yes, you CAN

avoid the holiday weight gain! Here’s how:

• Drink H2O before you eat: chances are, you are thirsty before any and

every meal; drink a full glass of water to quench your thirst first, then

notice you will feel fuller.

• Rainbow plate: make sure your plate has color - fresh/not creamed

items, broiled or grilled vegetables, protein, carbohydrate and again,

water.

• On the side: those side dishes - mashed potatoes, casseroles, stuffing,

dressing, etc. are SIDES not main dishes; make sure to keep these

portions small.

• NO to salad dressing: hooray there is a salad! BUT - that tasty dressing

(ranch, thousand island, French, Russian, balsamic vinaigrette, etc.) will

reverse the purpose of the ruffage; instead, make your own dressing at

home and bring it with you or simply ask for olive oil, salt & pepper and

maybe a hint of lemon.

• Walk it off: finished eating? Go for a WALK; football can wait (yes, even

the college games), because your body deserves better.

PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR WINTER

Preparing your home for winter can save you time and money. A little

preparation time in October or November can save you from the

heartache of these winter disasters.

GUTTERS - Remove leaves and other debris from gutters, so they move

and properly drain. Improper drainage can cause seepage into the house

causing water to drip from the ceiling and walls.

TREES - It is important to trim the trees especially over the roof area,

driveway and walkways. Ice and wind could cause weak or dead branches

to break. This could damage your home, your car or injure someone.

INSULATION/PIPES - How’s your insulation? Proper insulation saves

in your utility bills and also helps protect pipes from freezing. Wrap all

exposed pipes. Check for cracks and leaks and have them repaired to

prevent more costly repairs later. Learn how to shut off the water. If your

pipes do freeze, shutting off the water may help prevent the pipes from

bursting. Keep the temperature inside the house at least 65 degrees. A

lower temperature may not keep the pipes from freezing.

HEATING SYSTEM - It is important to service your heating system at least

once a year. If you have a wood burning fireplace, the chimney should

also be serviced once a year. Smoke and fire alarms should be working

properly and you might consider installing a carbon dioxide detector.

IF YOU ARE AWAY FROM HOME - If you are going to be gone for an

extended period of time during very cold weather, drain the pipes to

prevent freezing. Also have someone check on your home regularly. If

there is a problem, it can be fixed quickly, possibly preventing further

damage. Remember to have mail and newspaper delivery held and

notify the constables that you will be gone. Go to www.constablepct4.

com to put a vacation watch on your home.

Katy

Independent

School District

www.katyisd.org

IMPORTANT DATES

November 25th-29th: Thanksgiving Break

KATY ISD LAUNCHES NEW ANONYMOUS

REPORTING MOBILE APPLICATION

When students are victimized or have knowledge of safety issues, fear

or confusion may discourage them from telling school personnel or

a police officer. The Katy Independent School District is encouraging

students, parents and community members to anonymously report tips

or information about potential safety threats through the District’s new

SpeakUP reporting mobile application. This new app is one of many

ways the District is fostering engagement and developing customized

resources that adapt to the needs of a growing school district with

changing demographics.

The SpeakUP mobile device app was developed for the Katy ISD school

community to anonymously submit safety and well-being tips to help

prevent campus related incidents that could cause harm to others. Tips

can be on bullying, weapons, self-harm, illicit drug use, inappropriate

relationships, violence or a number of other concerns.

Last year, Katy ISD successfully debuted a Bullying Tip Line submission

process that was featured on the Katy OnTheGo app. Prior to the school

year ending, the Tip Line had been accessed over 130,000 times. During

this past summer, the District designed and developed the SpeakUP

app to offer a wider range of reporting capabilities, including over 40

different safety related categories. The improved reporting app even

allows students to attach a video or photo evidence that supports the tip

as well as receive updates on their submission.

All tips are thoroughly investigated by campus personnel, police and/

or a crisis management team. Katy ISD believes that the app will be an

excellent additional tool to help support the emotional well-being of

students and provide safe learning environments for all.

KATY ISD CHANGES GRADING POLICY

Katy Independent School District Trustees approved changes to the

Academic Achievement Class Ranking and District grading policy. The

updated policy removes the “D” letter grade from the alphabetical

identification grades. The update also addresses changes to the class

ranking practice. Students who began the 2019-20 school year as juniors,

sophomores or freshmen will also see a modification to the class rank

reporting practice that is a part of that grading policy. While eleventh

grade students in the top 10% will continue to receive a class rank in

the spring semester of their junior year, all other students will receive a

quartile rank during that same time. This will have no adverse effect on

students below the top 10%. This year’s graduating seniors will adhere

to the previous class rank reporting practice in which a ranking will be

issued for every member of the class of 2020.

6

Quartile ranking is consistent with the majority of Texas state public

college admission policies. Katy ISD campuses will be reviewing the

updated policy with students in the coming weeks to help inform

students and families of the recent changes.

KATY ISD OFFERS COMMUNITY

EDUCATION CLASSES FOR ADULTS

Have you ever wanted to learn how to design a cake, play the guitar

or maybe even how to dance the salsa? The Katy Independent School

District Community Education classes are now in session and are aimed

at providing opportunities to build expertise, learn a different skill or

enjoy a new activity. With a variety of topics and options, the Community

Education courses at Katy ISD provides the general public with learning

opportunities that include self-improvement, enrichment, recreation,

academic courses and best of all an opportunity to make new friends.

Classes take place at various Katy ISD high schools during evening hours

and interested individuals can view course availability through the

District’s online course catalog.

Registration is available online. Everyone is invited to register for classes,

even if you live outside of the Katy ISD district. Certificates of completion

are issued for most classes. For questions, call the Community Education

department at 281-396-6365.

Gardening Tips For November

• Brown patch will continue to plague St. Augustine lawns as nights get cooler and humidity and rain continue. Discolored circles will appear in low

areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf.

It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to

eliminate those low spots.

• Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow

on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away.

• As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth.

• Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply.

• Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings. Beds made now

will benefit by weathering before being planted. If soil is heavy, dig six inches deep, leave rough, cover with gymsum and strawy manure, water and

allow to mellow.

• Bananas are more likely to bear fruit if the trunk does not die back in winter. Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap.

• Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles;

they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens.

• Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant.

• Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.
