NUTRITION SERVICES UTILIZE
HS GREENHOUSES FOR GARDEN-FRESH PRODUCE
The CFISD nutrition services department is responsible for feeding
approximately 80,000 students every day and with that responsibility comes
a continual demand for large quantities of food. In an effort to enhance
the supply of fresh produce, the nutrition services team devised a plan to
source it locally via high school greenhouses. The team brought the plan
to district partners Slow Food USA and the Whole Kids Foundation, who
noted that CFISD serves a large amount of romaine lettuce in its cafeterias.
Their recommendation was for the district to grow its own lettuce using a
hydroponic system-a soilless growing method using a specific combination
of nutrients to help plants grow only using water. Knowing that the Cypress
Woods High School greenhouse had available space and the proper equipment,
Emmy Durand, coordinator of nutrition education, put the plan into action.
She contacted Kyle Atkins, Cypress Woods agriculture science teacher, about
preparing the greenhouse for a hydroponic test grow. Growing produce
using hydroponics is different than growing produce in soil. First, seeds are
planted in water-absorbent “plugs” that then go into a nursery until the seeds
germinate. After germination, the plugs are moved into the greenhouse where
they are placed in gutters that constantly have water running underneath them.
The water, which contains nutrients conductive to plant growth, allows the
produce to grow to full size in the gutters. After a year of growing romaine
lettuce at Cypress Woods, Durand and her team expanded the program to
Cypress Springs High School to help utilize their greenhouse. In addition
to growing romaine lettuce, Cypress Woods and Cypress Springs will grow
other leafy greens, including basil and butter lettuce during the 2019-2020
school year. All produce grown in the greenhouses will be taken to the CFISD
food production center to be washed and then returned to school cafeterias
in place of traditionally grown lettuce. For more information about CFISD
nutrition services, visit its page on the CFISD website.
22 CFISD NATIONAL MERIT SEMIFINALISTS
A total of 22 CFISD seniors representing nine high schools were confirmed
as semifinalists in the 65th annual National Merit Scholarship Program,
officials announced on September 11 th , giving the talented students an
opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 7,600 National
Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million to be offered next spring.
The following students have been National Merit semifinalists:
Bridgeland: Joshua Fang Cy-Fair: Thanh-Nhu Bui, Evelyn Pan, Roshan
Rajan Cypress Creek: Hasan Abbasi Cypress Falls: Jacob Siboyeh
Cypress Ridge: Neel Narayan Cypress Ranch: Donald McAfoose, Michael
Zhou Cypress Woods: Govind Chada, Sritha Cheemerla, Steven Cheng,
David Chu, Walker Drury, Allison Hinaman, Brian Janger, Alexandra Pugh,
Mariam William, Angela Zhong Jersey Village: Jane Nguyen Langham
Creek: Alia Nathani, Chloe Tang
The 22 semifinalists are among the 16,000 throughout the U.S. selected
by officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. They placed
among the 1 percent of about 1.5 million students who entered the Merit
Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit School Qualifying
Test (PSAT/NMSQT) during their junior year. To be considered for a merit
scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance
to the finalist level of competition, which include a detailed application,
essay and endorsement by a high school official. More than 90 percent
of semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, with roughly half
winning a National Merit Scholarship. Qualifying students will be notified
of their final designations in February, with National Merit Scholarship
winners announced beginning in April and concluding in July.
PEER ASSISTANCE LEADERSHIP (PALS) COURSES
Hundreds of CFISD students spent September 30 th at the Berry Center for
annual training in Peer Assistance Leadership (PALs) courses. More than 600
students attended the required training, which included breakout sessions with
CFISD’s guidance and counseling, psychological services and community
programs departments, networked with other students from all 12 high schools
and heard talks from former Cypress Springs High School PALs adviser Hal
Bowman and recording artist Austin Lanier. Students also participated in
multiple team building activities. PALs courses are available for juniors and
seniors who qualify through an application process. Like the name states,
PALs are student mentors to elementary and middle school students, with
duties determined by the needs of each campus. Some duties include serving
as tutors, playing games, working on social and speaking skills, helping
boost self-esteem and promoting a healthy lifestyle. PALs began in 1980
as a “peer-helping” program, growing from an informal extracurricular
activity within a school district into a structured, curriculum-based program
adopted as an accredited elective course.

CY RANCH HS EQUESTRIAN RIDER EARNS
Cypress Ranch High School senior Samantha Reynoso is gaining national
attention for her latest accomplishments as an award-winning equestrian
rider. Reynoso started riding horses when she was 8 years old and has
been collecting accolades ever since. She finished the 2018 riding season
as the Zone 7 champion of the United States Hunter Jumper Association
(USHJA), which consists of riders from Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma,
Missouri, Arkansas and Kansas. This past summer, Reynoso competed
in the USHJA Combined Zone 7 and Zone 8 Championship in Santa
Fe, N.M., where she earned a team gold medal as well as an individual
bronze medal. Reynoso was the only jumper to receive two medals in
Her performance at the USHJA Combined Championship qualified
Reynoso to compete in the USHJA National Finals being held November
11 th -17 th in Las Vegas, Nev. and attend one of USHJA’s Gold Star Clinics,
which is exclusively for USHJA gold star emerging jumpers.
During the first day of school, August 26 th , Reynoso learned that she is one
of 16 riders from across the country to be selected for USHJA’s Emerging
Athlete Program, a program for professional and non-professional riders
under the age of 25. Selection for the program includes not only the
rider’s talent, but their knowledge of all phases of horsemanship.
Reynoso trains three to four hours six days a week, all while taking
advanced level courses and retaining a 4.0 GPA. As she enters her senior
year, Reynoso hopes to attend Texas A&M University or Baylor University
to continue her equestrian career. If not selected for a college-level team,
Reynoso would still like to continue riding as a student trainer.

HOUSTON MAYOR AND HOUSTON AUDUBON
EXECUTIVE ANNOUNCE THE BIRD OF HOUSTON
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner alongside Houston Audubon’s Executive
Director, Helen Drummond, proclaimed the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
as the official Bird of Houston. In an effort to increase awareness of the
birds around us, Houston Audubon coordinated the Bird of Houston
contest, where Houstonians voted on their favorite local bird through a
series of bracket rounds. Over 60 bird species were originally nominated,
leading to the final round, which pitted the Attwater’s Prairie-Chicken
against the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron.
Houston’s location on the central flyway is a vital stopover for migratory
birds and a welcoming, year-round, home to our resident bird. Not
only do birds need our city to thrive, but Houston needs a healthy bird
population. Birds are essential to human welfare thanks to the many
ecosystem services they provide, from pollination and pest-control, to
clean-up and seed dispersal. A representative Bird of Houston is just the
thing to connect our residents to their avian neighbors.
The Bird of Houston announcement coincides with Houston Bird
Week celebration from September 21 st until September 28 th , in honor
of Houston Audubon’s 50 th anniversary. Houston Audubon’s Young
Professionals Advisory Council in collaboration with local conservation
partners have created educational, fun and celebratory events across the
Houston metro area for the whole family. To view the calendar of events,

HOW TO WINTERIZE A SPRINKLER SYSTEM
Winterizing a sprinkler system requires a homeowner to know the type of
system installed. Proper care and maintenance in the fall prevents heartache
over cracked pipes, ruined seals and broken valves in the spring. Damage to an
underground irrigation system is costly to fix and may require a large portion of
the yard to be dug out to locate the problem. Most systems have a built-in manual
or automatic drain valve that uses gravity to move water from the pipes. Yet the
thin tubing used in irrigation systems has a tendency to shift and sink over time.
This movement allows water to become pooled within the pipes. Any water left
behind has the potential to destroy the plastic and metal within the system as it
expands in freezing temperatures. Winterizing is fairly easy to learn and most doit-yourselfers
already own the necessary tools for the job. To completely remove
water from the system, a purge must be completed using compressed air. Follow
these steps to “blow out” an underground sprinkler system.
Step 1 - Shut Off the Water Supply: All underground sprinkler systems
have a main shut off point. For safety, it is usually located in a basement, a
crawlspace, or buried underground in a valve box. Valve boxes are buried up
to 5 feet underground and may require a long key to shut off. If the original
key cannot be located, contact the contractor that installed the system or
the manufacturer to obtain a replacement. The shut-off valve should turn
easily - do not force it. Simply turn the valve to the “off” position. If the
system operates with a pump, this will need to be drained, disconnected,
and stored indoors for the winter. If it is not a removable variety, wrap it in
insulated blanketing for the winter. This can be purchased at the hardware
store and is similar to insulation used for hot water heaters.
Step 2 - Purge the Backflow Device. Sprinkler heads in a lawn. Systems
that run from community water usually have one of two kinds of
backflow devices: an Atmospheric Vacuum Breaker (AVB) or a Pressure
Vacuum Breaker (PVB). Sometimes a PVB is also called a Reduced
Pressure Device. If the system is supplied with privately owned water,
check the installation plan. If no backflow device was installed, then the
homeowner can skip this step. AVBs are installed below each valve and
are purged with the system. PVBs should not be purged with compressed
air because the heat may cause them to soften and melt. After the system

is purged, return to the PVB and rotate the ball valves and test cocks
back and forth several times. Then, leave them in a half-open position to
prevent moisture from building up on either side of the valves. Draining a
Reduced Pressure Device is much more complicated, and a homeowner
should refer to their manufacturers’ instructions to find the correct
procedure for their device.
Step 3 - Drain the System: Compressed air is a great way to ensure all
of the water is removed from the pipes and valves in the downstream,
a portion of the system. Both pressure and air volume must reach a
critical point to completely purge the system. A range of 40-80 pounds
per square inch (psi) is ideal, with 80 psi being the maximum for rigid
PVC tubing and 50 psi for a polyethylene pipe. To find the appropriate
volume, use this simple formula: gallons per minute (GPM) divided
by 7.5 equals the cubic feet per minute of compressed air necessary.
Most sprinkler systems are given a GPM rating per zone at the time of
installation. Since each system has a unique design, the GPM is marked
on the original design plan. If needed, this can also be calculated
based on the information provided in the manufacturer’s instructions
or on their website. Essentially, the zone GPM is calculated by adding
up the GPM for each nozzle within the zone. Find the GPM rating for
the different nozzle models on the manufacturers’ website. Use a
compressor providing the proper CFM of air within the correct psi range.
If a smaller compressor is used it will take much longer for a complete
purge and will overwork the compressor. An oversized compressor
can still be used as long as it is fitted with a regulator, without an air
pressure regulator the system will “blow out” too fast causing friction
as the hot air passes through dry pipes. This will result in melted pipes
and blown valves - a costly mistake. The backflow device must have
a blowout fitting downstream. If not, compressed air cannot be used
to purge the system, but one can be added any time after installation.
While a metal fitting for the air compressor line is not required, it will
reduce the amount of friction and heat passed into the system and will
prevent unnecessary damage to the system.
Attach the compressor line to the blowout valve. Be sure the isolation
ball cock downstream of the backflow device is closed. During this step,
you should wear eyewear protection. Any loose fittings or nozzles may
pop off unexpectedly and can cause injury. Turn on one or more of the
zones at the irrigation controller and set the compressor to the correct
psi and start it up.
Use two short cycles of compressed air to completely blow out each zone.
Once a zone is blown out do not run it through again. This will cause
undue heat to build up and may cause damage to the pipes underground
that will not be visible until the system is turned on in the spring.
Step 4 - Program the Controller - Four sprinkler heads in a row.
After disconnecting the air compressor, make sure to turn all valves on
the backflow prevention device to the half-open position for the winter.
Also, leave the controller plugged in since the small amount of heat it
gives off will prevent condensation from building up inside the device.
Program the controller to run at a minimum cycle once a week to keep
the solenoid plungers from becoming stuck in one position.
In the spring, remember to turn all the test cocks and ball valves to the
closed position again before pressurizing the system. When the water
supply is re-established, slowly reopen the ball valves to prevent damage.
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,
• On the side: those side dishes - mashed potatoes, casseroles, stuffing,
dressing, etc. are SIDES not main dishes; make sure to keep these
• 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.
