COMMUNITY GENEROUSLY SUPPORTS 2021

LIVESTOCK SHOW AND SALE

The 27 th Annual CFISD Livestock Show Association Show and Sale, held

Feb. 1 st -6 th at the CFISD Exhibit Center, saw an incredible amount of

generosity from the CFISD community through the live auction, freezer

sale, monetary donations and the first-ever online sale, despite the

COVID-19 pandemic.

The Premium Sale (live auction) unofficially raised $281,950, which is

$23,250 more than last year. Final amounts from the Freezer Sale (animals

not placing high enough for the live auction), Agriculture Mechanics and

Horticulture silent auction and additional gifts to students are not yet

available. More than 130 projects had pre-sale commitments to purchase

and animals in the Freezer Sale sold out in record time. In addition, one

new record was set for Grand Champion Turkey:

• Texas Travel Plaza & Cana Tire Inc. paid $20,000 for the Grand Champion

Turkey exhibited by Mason Oehlers from Jersey Village High School.

“The support from the community was amazing,” said Denise Kubecka,

director of career and technical education. “The common message

community members shared was that they were there to ensure our

FFA students were rewarded for their hard work and they did not want

the pandemic to take anything away from that. So many wanted to be

a part of this event that the students will remember for a lifetime. The

community’s outpouring of support was heartwarming. This would not

have happened without the parents, community members, countless

CFISD departments and, of course, our ag teachers working together on

the common goal to put our students first. Thank you to all. We did it!”

The following Livestock Royalty representatives were chosen:

• Show King - Reagon Carter from Bridgeland FFA;

• Show Queen - Evyn Barnes from Bridgeland FFA;

• Mr. Show Teen - Lucas Payan from Bridgeland FFA;

• Miss Show Teen - Emily Fayard from Cypress Woods FFA; and

• Top Hand (Sales) - Kaitlyn Smith from Cypress Woods FFA.

FOUR HIGH SCHOOLS RECEIVE FIRST WAVE OF

SYNTHETIC TURF FIELDS

Four high schools have finished receiving new synthetic turf baseball

and softball fields as part of the community-supported 2019 bond

referendum. Cypress Ridge, Cypress Ranch, Cypress Woods and Cypress

Falls high schools each received the improvements this year, at an

estimated cost of $14.5 million. The project was designed by IBI Architects

and constructed by ICI Construction.

“A three-phase plan is being implemented for the design and

construction of the fields,” said Roy Sprague, CFISD chief operations

officer. “Phase 1 started in 2019, with those four campuses having

March 2021 | Cypress Point


een substantially completed. Phase 2 design work is being completed

and construction is anticipated to start in April 2021 and the Phase 3

campuses design work will start in early 2022.”

Phase 2 is scheduled to include Cypress Creek, Cypress Lakes, Jersey

Village and Langham Creek high schools. Phase 3 is scheduled to include

Cypress Springs, Cypress Park and Bridgeland high schools. The Cy-Fair

High School synthetic turf fields will be constructed as part of the Cy-Fair

Multi-Campus Master Plan Improvements, with design starting in late

2021.

The synthetic turf, supplied by FieldTurf USA, allows for almost immediate

playability after rainfall; as well as less groundskeeping and maintenance,

year-round availability and increased safety.

“We are excited for the start of our upcoming softball and baseball

seasons and the recent addition of our four baseball and four softball

turfed fields,” said Ray Zepeda, CFISD director of athletics. “The entire

project will allow us to have a facility that is much more useful and

functional for our programs, athletes and coaches.”

In addition to the surface improvements, the project also increased the

seating capacity at the Cypress Ridge and Cypress Ranch softball fields

and the Cypress Woods and Cypress Falls baseball facilities.

“We are hopeful that this will allow us to host more playoff contests within

our school district,” Zepeda said. “The quality of the materials and the scope

of the entire project reflects our communities’ commitment to having firstclass

facilities for our athletes. We sincerely appreciate the support of our

community and will certainly take great pride in our new facilities.”

this past fall. And when those projects proved financially challenging and

COVID numbers spiked again, we created “Light Up the Lot” and moved

all our programming outdoors. We’ve never given up. We never will give

up. But due to circumstances beyond our control, we find ourselves

needing to pivot once more. Which brings us to the announcement of

our virtual season. Go to www.adplayers.org for all the information.

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.

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.
