ALL 12 CFISD HIGH SCHOOLS

RECEIVE LTE 1:1 CHROMEBOOKS

All 12 CFISD high schools have received Chromebooks for students as

part of the district’s LTE (Learning Together Everywhere) 1:1 program.

Rollouts began before the Thanksgiving holiday and were completed

before winter break. More than 75,000 CFISD students have received a

Chromebook, which includes 100% of high school students having their

own device. In addition, 52% of elementary students and 46% of middle

school students have received their individually issued Chromebook.

CFISD has met all requests of CFISD Connect students who indicated a

need for a device in order to be successful while learning remotely.

“Successfully deploying individually issued Chromebooks to all

high school students in CFISD is an incredible feat that could not be

accomplished without the support of the community and the CFISD

Board of Trustees,” said Katie Gentry, director of 1:1 and inventory systems.

“These devices will enable teachers to transform learning anytime,

anywhere, allowing students to reach their full potential for college and

career readiness. The spirit of CFISD was evident in this project as many

departments stepped up and heeded the call to think outside the box to

make this happen in an expedient manner for our high school students

across the district.”

In a special-called meeting on July 7 th , the CFISD Board of Trustees

unanimously voted in favor of authorizing the superintendent to approve

the purchase of portable electronic devices, LTE internet access and

other items needed to support a one-to-one solution for CFISD students.

The LTE 1:1 program provides every student with an electronic device to

support quality instruction and resources. The program allows CFISD to

meet the needs of all students by providing appropriate teacher-directed

instruction, including real-time live virtual instruction.

ICONIC FIGHTER JET TO BE REFURBISHED AND UNVEILED BY THE AMERICAN LEGION POST 521

“ONE MORE MISSION” - COATING SOCIETY OF HOUSTON MEMBERS TAKE PROJECT TO COMPLETION

On July 29, 1984 American Legion Post 521 received a F4D Fighter Jet from the Air Force Reclamation Center and dedicated it to all POW’s and MIA’s

from all wars and conflicts involving the United States of America. Recently, the Post reached out to the Coating Society of Houston for assistance in

refurbishing this iconic piece of memorabilia, which was showing extreme decay due to local weather conditions.

“We have been working getting this plane restored for several years and were finally able to find a group that was willing to donate their time and

materials to helping us,” said Joseph Thomas, 22 nd District Commander of the American Legion Department of Texas.

CREATE A LIGHT JAR

Get Mason jars, mayo or pickle jars or even some vases and I use

the battery operated string lights to make “normal” decorations. In

one, along with the lights, I have the glass beads you can get at

the dollar store in many colors, in another I have seashells we got

in Galveston. I am sure you can find something that would match

your own home and style to place in these.

So if you are like me and just need that pick-me-up of some bright

twinkling lights once the decorations are all down, make one or

more of these and have them year round!

NATIONAL LIBRARY LOVER’S MONTH

The entire month of February is dedicated to the people who love whole

buildings devoted to the reading, housing organizing, categorizing, finding,

studying and otherwise loving books. It’s National Library Lover’s Month!

Libraries provide so much more than a place for us to enjoy great novels

or to discover amazing adventures and untold history. Yes, they help us

ace our research papers and provide a quiet space to study, but they do

so much more.

For preschoolers, libraries entertain them with theater and hands-on

activities exposing them to music, art and their first friendships. Many

communities rely on their libraries for meeting space for public forums,

socials, fundraisers and classes.

Libraries lend not only books but music and movies. Rotating art displays

give local artists exposure to the community. Larger libraries provide

preservation services, preserving some of the most treasured books,

periodicals and documents for future generations.

Continue enjoying your library, but consider volunteering your time, too.

If you don’t have a library card, it’s never too late! Visit your library to get

one! Use #NationalLibraryLoversDay to share on social media.

GARDENING TIPS FOR FEBRUARY

FLOWERS

• Plants to set: Alyssum, Calendula, Canterbury Bells, Carnations,

Columbine, Cornflower, Daisies, Delphinium, Hollyhock, Larkspur, Lobelia,

Nicotiana, Pansy, Petunia, Phlox (Louisiana), Shrimp Plant, Snapdragon,

Stock and Verbena.

VEGETABLES

• Plant beets, broccoli (plants), brussel sprouts (plants), cabbage (plants),

carrots, cauliflower (plants), celery, chinese cabbage (plants), chives

collards (plants), endive, kale, lettuce (leaf and head), mustard, onions

(plants), parsley, garden peas, radishes, rutabagas, spinach, tomato

(seeds) and turnips.

TREES AND SHRUBS

• Finish all transplanting, get everything in the ground for a good spring

spurt of growth. Transplant balled and burlap, container-grown, bare-root

deciduous evergreen trees, shrubs, roses and vines while still dormant.

• Finish pruning roses. Weed and cultivate lightly all beds. Replenish

mulch as needed.

• Control early spring insects like thrips on glads and aphids on young

tender growth. Spray with Malathion, Diazinon or Orthene.

• At the end of February: peach, apple and pear fruit must be thinned to

insure quality production at harvest.

• Give groundcovers a haircut. They will spread faster.

• Divide daylilies, daisies and other perennials now.

NATIONAL BIRD FEEDING MONTH

During National Bird Feeding Month in February, keep the bird feeders

filled and your binoculars ready.

Bird watching and feeding have become a popular hobby. By providing

basic shelter and seed, hobbyists watch from their windows or along

trails.

• Be sure to feed regularly and place your feeder away from predators.

• Set binoculars near the window for best viewing.

• Obtain a bird book for identifying new species.

Fill up the bird feeder or add one this month. In 1994, Congressman John

Porter established February as National Bird Feeding Month due to the

harsh conditions endured during one of the coldest months of the year.
