March 22nd: 4th Elementary Grading Cycle Begins

COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOL UPDATES

CONTINUED CAMPUS PHASE 1 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Katy ISD Campus Phase 1 Safety Protocols remain in effect to ensure the continued

mitigation and deterrence of the potential spread of COVID-19. The District anticipates

releasing Phase 2 protocols when state, local and the Texas Education Agency (TEA)

provide updated guidance allowing for de-escalation of virus mitigation protocols. Katy

ISD will provide updates as additional information becomes available. Please check the

Katy ISD “Smart Restart” webpage to review current Campus Phase 1 Safety Protocols.

KATY ISD BOARD OF TRUSTEES CALL

FOR A MAY 2021 SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION

The Katy ISD Board of Trustees approved to hold a general election in

May 2021 for a three-year term in Positions 6 and 7.

• Early Voting by Personal Appearance: Mon, April 19 to Tues, April 27, 2021

• Election Day: Saturday, May 1, 2021

Currently, Position 6 is being held by Susan Gesoff and Position 7 is held

by Dawn Champagne. State law requires a candidate for trustee of an

independent school district to be a qualified voter by the time mentioned

in Election Code Section 141.001. Katy ISD trustees are the governing body

of the school district and are the main advising group that oversees and

shapes policies. Individuals serving as Board members are not employees

of Katy ISD, yet they dedicate countless hours to lead an A+ school district.

KATY VIRTUAL SCHOOL REGISTRATION OPEN

For students, virtual classes are an excellent way to acquire graduation credits

and/or expand their learning opportunities. Last year, over 4,000 students

utilized the Katy Virtual School (KVS) program offered by the Katy Independent

School District. KVS launched in 2013 with a primary goal of expanding the

learning opportunities for students by offering choice and flexibility for rigorous

online courses developed and taught by Katy ISD teachers. KVS has begun

online registration for Summer 2021, Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters.

“KVS provides online learning that offers a flexible, online experience, which

helps students achieve their educational goals,” said Susan Richards, Katy ISD

Instructional Technology e-Learning Manager. “The virtual model of e-learning

is in high demand and delivers quality instruction to Katy ISD students, outside

of normal school hours, to support student graduation plans. KVS is different

from the current Katy Virtual Academy (KVA), which is the online learning

model implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” added Richards.

KVS will offer a wide range of courses from Creative Writing, AP Art

History, English III, World Geography, Economics, Psychology and more.

There are over 30 Advanced Placement (AP), Katy Advanced Program

(KAP) and academic level courses available to students with additional

opportunities being added each year. The cost per course is $200 per

semester. KVS is an approved College Board online provider for Advanced

Placement (AP) courses and by the NCAA for student initial eligibility.

For more information, students can talk with their campus counselor for

additional information, email KVS at katyvirtualschool@katyisd.org or

visit the Katy ISD Virtual School website.

Please note: Katy Virtual School and Katy Virtual Academy are two

separate programs. Katy Virtual School is a supplemental program to

help entering or present high school students take courses in advance.

MARCH 21ST IS COMMON COURTESY DAY

Queue jumpers, finger clicking… people that board the train carriage

before giving you the chance to get off. What about those people that

never say “please” or people that read your messages but don’t reply for

days? Common Courtesy Day gives people the opportunity to be more…

well, ‘courteous’ - even if it’s just for one day out of the entire year.

In the Merriam-Webster dictionary, courtesy is described as a: behavior

marked by polished manners or respect for others: courteous behavior b:

a courteous and respectful act or expression. Common courtesy can be as

simple as saying “please” and “thank you” when asking for and receiving a

service, gift or assistance. Kindness and courtesy do go a long way and are

noticed by others even if you do not realize it. Letting someone in front

of you in traffic is easy. Hold open a door for someone or give a person a

hand with his groceries. Give up your seat on the bus to someone who

might need it. Introduce yourself to the new employee or kid at school

and take the time to introduce her to the rest of the crew. These are just a

few examples of small things that make a difference to someone else. They

are momentary deeds of being courteous. The aim of Common Courtesy

Day is to practice common courtesy for one day and encourage others

to do the same. According to the Collins English dictionary, Courtesy is

defined as: politeness, respect and consideration for others.

ONE CALL DOES IT ALL!

How to Be More Courteous

If common courtesy is not a part of your daily routine, then this is the day

to start implementing courtesy into your life. Try it; not only will the other

person appreciate it, but you will feel good about it also. Practicing daily

kindness will not only make others feel better and reflect positively upon

yourself, it can make you feel good too. Here are some examples of how

you can celebrate Common Courtesy Day:

• Greet people with “good morning” and “good afternoon.”

• Give up your seat for someone who may need it more.

• When you drink the last of the milk in the fridge, replace it.

• Hold the door.

• Place the cardboard tube from the toilet paper holder in the bin and

replace with fresh roll.

• Refill the printer with paper when it runs out.

• Pay someone a compliment.

• When you ‘borrow’ a pen, actually give it back.

• Contact someone you’ve not spoken to in a while.

• Complain less.

• Instead of getting mad, appreciate that the person that just barked at

you is probably just having a bad day.

• Feed the homeless.

• Do a spot of cleaning at home or at work.

• Leave someone a ‘thank you’ note.

• Respect the environment - don’t litter and maybe consider walking to

work instead of driving.

The founder of Common Courtesy Day is a complete mystery, but we

can’t argue that this is an amazing opportunity for us to implement more

courtesy into our daily lives.

meeting. At this first troop meeting in Savannah, Georgia, there were 18

girls present. For these girls, Juliette Gordon Low organized enrichment

programs, service projects and outdoor activities and adventures. Since

the time of the first meeting, Girl Scouts has grown to over 3.7 million

members.

The organization’s original name was the Girl Guides of America

By 1920 there were close to 70,000 members

By 1930 there were over 200,000 members

In 2005 there were over 3.7 million members

Backpacking: The simplicity of strapping on a pack and hitting the trail makes

backpacking one of the five best outdoor sports and recreational activities

for exercise. Regardless of the intensity and duration of the backpacking

trip, you burn a significant amount of calories while experiencing the great

outdoors. Backpacking for one hour can burn about 600 to 700 calories per

hour while building lower body strength and stamina.

Running: Running is a classic outdoor sport and recreational activity and

one of the best for building endurance, stamina and muscular fitness

while burning calories. Running at 8 mph can burn more than 1,000

calories per hour and you can increase that amount with rugged outdoor

terrain, such as hills or trails.

Cycling: Learning how to ride a bike is a rite of passage for kids, but

cycling can provide a lifetime of exercise and fitness. You can take the

bike on paved roads or trails along with off-road trails to experience

remote locations in the mountains or forests. Along with burning about

400 calories per hour, cycling builds lower body strength while improving

balance, coordination and cardiovascular fitness.

Swimming: Swimming is known for providing a low-impact total body

workout, but it’s also one of the top outdoor sports. You can vary your

swimming activity from freestyle swimming to aqua aerobics in the outdoor

pool or local lake. Swimming is a common alternative to running, cycling or

hiking when the weather turns hot. One hour of swimming burns about

600 to 700 calories and improves endurance, strength and coordination.

20 WAYS TO ENJOY MORE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

Building a healthy plate is easy when you make half your plate fruits

and vegetables. It’s also a great way to add color, flavor and texture plus

vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. Make 2 cups of fruit and 2 1⁄2 cups of

vegetables your daily goal. Try the following tips to enjoy more fruits and

vegetables every day.

1. Variety abounds when using vegetables as pizza topping. Try broccoli,

spinach, green peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and zucchini.

2. Mix up a breakfast smoothie made with low-fat milk, frozen strawberries

and a banana.

3. Make a veggie wrap with roasted vegetables and low-fat cheese rolled

in a whole-wheat tortilla.

4. Try crunchy vegetables instead of chips with your favorite low-fat salad

dressing for dipping.

5. Grill colorful vegetable kabobs packed with tomatoes, green and red

peppers, mushrooms and onions.

6. Add color to salads with baby carrots, grape tomatoes, spinach leaves

or mandarin oranges.*

7. Keep cut vegetables handy for mid-afternoon snacks, side dishes,

lunch box additions or

a quick nibble while waiting for dinner. Ready-to-eat favorites: red, green

or yellow peppers, broccoli or cauliflower florets, carrots, celery sticks,

cucumbers, snap peas or whole radishes.

8. Place colorful fruit where everyone can easily grab something for a

snack-on-the- run. Keep a bowl of fresh, just ripe whole fruit in the center

of your kitchen or dining table.

9. Get saucy with fruit. Puree apples, berries, peaches or pears in a blender

for a thick, sweet sauce on grilled or broiled seafood or poultry, or on

pancakes, French toast or waffles.

10. Stuff an omelet with vegetables. Turn any omelet into a hearty meal

with broccoli, squash, carrots, peppers, tomatoes or onions with low-fat

sharp cheddar cheese.

11. “Sandwich” in fruits and vegetables. Add pizzazz to sandwiches with

sliced pineapple, apple, peppers, cucumber and tomato as fillings.

12. Wake up to fruit. Make a habit of adding fruit to your morning oatmeal,

ready-to-eat cereal, yogurt or toaster waffle.

13. Top a baked potato with beans and salsa or broccoli and low-fat

cheese.

14. Microwave a cup of vegetable soup as a snack or with a sandwich for

lunch.

15. Add grated, shredded or chopped vegetables such as zucchini,

spinach and carrots to lasagna, meat loaf, mashed potatoes, pasta sauce

and rice dishes.

16. Make fruit your dessert: Slice a banana lengthwise and top with a

scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt. Sprinkle with a tablespoon of chopped

nuts.

17. Stock your freezer with frozen vegetables to steam or stir-fry for a

quick side dish.

18. Make your main dish a salad of dark, leafy greens and other colorful

vegetables. Add chickpeas or edamame (fresh soybeans). Top with lowfat

dressing.*

19. Fruit on the grill: Make kabobs with pineapple, peaches and banana.

Grill on low heat until fruit is hot and slightly golden.

20. Dip: Whole wheat pita wedges in hummus, baked tortilla chips in

salsa, strawberries or apple slices in low-fat yogurt, or graham crackers

in applesauce.

SMART SNACKING TIPS FOR KIDS

Snacks can play an important role in meeting kids’ nutrient needs.

Choosing foods from all of the food groups will give them the energy

they need between meals. It helps to plan and portion out snacks in

advance. Kids will usually only need 2 or 3 snacks daily, and these should

be provided at least one hour before meals. It is recommended that

snacks (and meals) be eaten in an area without distractions. So avoid

snacking while watching TV or when using other electronic devices.

Better yet, let the kids help prepare the healthy snacks.

HERE ARE A FEW EASY, TASTY (AND HEALTHY)

SNACKS TO HELP GET YOU STARTED

1. Parfait: Layer vanilla or plain low-fat yogurt with fruit and dried

cereal.

2. Toast a whole grain waffle and top with low-fat yogurt and sliced fruit

or smooth nut butter.

3. Blend low-fat milk, frozen strawberries and a banana for thirty

seconds for a delicious smoothie.

4. Sandwich cut-outs: Make a sandwich on whole grain bread. Cut out

your favorite shape

using a big cookie cutter. Eat the fun shape and the edges, too!

5. Mini-pizza: Toast a whole wheat English muffin, drizzle with pizza

sauce and sprinkle with low-fat mozzarella cheese.

6. Frozen treats: Mix equal amounts of fat-free plain or flavored yogurt

with 100% fruit juice, then pour into paper cups and freeze for a tasty

treat.

7. Quesadilla: Sprinkle shredded cheese over a corn or whole wheat

tortilla; fold in half and microwave for twenty seconds. Top with salsa.

8. Spread hummus on a tortilla. Top with a slice of turkey or ham, low-fat

cheese and lettuce. Then roll it up.

9. Stuff a whole-grain pita pocket with ricotta cheese and Granny Smith

apple slices. Add a dash of cinnamon.10. Microwave a cup of tomato or

vegetable soup and enjoy with whole grain crackers.

11. Make a mini-sandwich with tuna or egg salad on a dinner roll.

12. Microwave a small baked potato. Top with reduced-fat cheddar

cheese and salsa.

13. Spread celery sticks with smooth nut butter or low-fat cream cheese.

Top with raisins. Enjoy your “ants on a log.”

14. Dip slices of fruit or whole-grain graham crackers into low-fat vanilla

pudding or yogurt.

15. Inside-out sandwich: Spread mustard

on a slice of deli turkey. Wrap around a sesame breadstick.

16. Rocky road: Smear low-fat chocolate pudding on a whole grain

graham cracker, then top with a marshmallow.

17. Sprinkle cinnamon on unsweetened applesauce and enjoy with a

whole grain graham cracker for a taste similar to apple pie.

18. Make your own fruit roll-up by pureeing fruit and either baking it in

the oven or by using a dehydrator.

19. Bake homemade chewy granola bars using whole-grain oats and

dried fruit.

20. Whip up mini-muffins using healthy ingredients, like whole grain

flours and pureed fruit.

March Gardening Tips

VEGETABLES: Plant vegetables such as tomatoes, sweet corn and

snap beans and pepper, as well as cucumbers, lima or butter beans,

cantaloupe, okra (if the soil has warmed sufficiently - 70 degrees F. or

higher), southern peas, pumpkin, squash, peanuts and watermelon.

LAWN: Re-sod or replant as needed with turfgrasses adapted to this

part of Texas and suited to the planting location (shade or sun). • When

resodding semi-shaded areas with St. Augustine, use ONLY the variety

Floratam for best pest resistance. See www.plantanswers.com/grass.htm.

TREES AND SHRUBS: Plant container-grown trees and shrubs as soon as

possible. In shady areas, where grass is difficult to grow, consider planting a

dependable groundcover such as English ivy, Asian jasmine, vinca or one of

the prostrate junipers. • Prune spring flowering and evergreen shrubs during

early March. However, be sure to prune spring flowering shrubs after they have

bloomed. • Fertilize with a pre-plant application of a slow-release fertilizer

analysis such as 19 - 5 - 9 at the rate of 3 pounds per 100 square feet of garden

planting area. Early March is the ideal time to fertilize landscape plants because

you give them food just before the spring growing season starts.

NATIONAL PLANT A FLOWER DAY - MARCH 12TH

Spring is just around the corner and March 12 th is the day to participate

in National Plant a Flower Day. Each year this day is dedicated to the

planting of flowers and looking forward to the spring season. Flower

gardening has become a hobby for many, young and old and National

Plant a Flower Day is a start to the new season each year.

Marigolds and Daffodils are the flowers of this month. It’s good to know

the zone you live in to determine which flowers grow as perennials (those

that grow back every year) in your area and which are considered annuals

(those that require planting every year). To find out more check out the

USDA site for Hardiness Zones.

Seeds can be started inside and set in a sunny window. When the weather

is nicer, move those plants outside. Keep the soil moist, but not wet and

follow the instructions on the seed package for proper germination of

the seedling. For those who can’t wait, get out those seed catalogs and

start planning your next flower garden.

Are you in a warmer climate? Then it’s time to get out the trowel and

the garden gloves and start turning over some new soil. Sow some new

seeds, bulbs or plants and nurture those blossoms into a brilliant blaze

for the whole neighborhood to enjoy.

Tips for Starting a Flower Garden: Start with a potted garden. If you aren’t

ready to tear up a patch of lawn, this is a good way to go. They do require

more watering, but less care overall. • Select plants that grow well in

your spot. Some plants grow well in the shade and others prefer the sun.

Others love both! • Did you know gardeners who prefer perennial gardens

have to thin their flower beds every couple of years? They also like to

share the extra bulbs and seeds with those who are new to gardening,

so if you know someone with a green thumb, get to know them better.

You might get some free plants, advice and a budding friendship! • Local

greenhouses stock plants that grow well in your area. Don’t be afraid to

ask them questions and shop there frequently. • Let’s all work together

by planting a flower and helping make the world a more beautiful place.
