DIY CAR MAINTENANCE
When was the last time you serviced your car ON YOUR OWN? Our pretty
four wheels deserve attention, too and this means more than just a car
wash. Here are a few tune-up tips you can do on your own:
1. Air filter - You need a new air filter for your car every 12 months or
12,000 miles, whichever comes first. You can pay a mechanic and give up
your car for a day or you can replace your air filter at home in about ten
2. Windshield Wipers - You’ll need new wiper blades after about six
months or a year of use. You shouldn’t deal with the danger of streaking
while you put off an inconvenient trip to the auto shop.
3. Oil and filter - Experts say you should change your oil every 3,000
miles, but with better products and cars operating more efficiently, you
can get away with changing it every 5,000 miles. Whichever benchmark
you decide to use, you can save time and money by handling the change
4. Battery maintenance - if you’ve had the same battery for a few years,
pop your hood every few months and take a look at the battery to see if
it needs a simple cleaning.

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 firstname.lastname@example.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.

our proceeds to charity. All of our tutors are straight-A students at Seven
Lakes High school and we offer a multitude of courses like creative

of Houston will host its annual Houston’s Heroes Awards Luncheon on
Tuesday, May 4, 2021 from 11:30 AM-1 PM at the Royal Sonesta Houston

given exemplary service to make Houston a safer place to live, work,
learn and play. Due to the public health threat from Covid-19 and the
current health and safety protocols, we will offer both an in-person
event with limited seating as well as virtual access for sponsors and
supporters to participate from home. While Crime Stoppers had to
cancel this event last Spring due to the pandemic, the organization is
unable to do so this year and reminds the community that it relies on
this event for funding. Eight distinguished awards will be awarded at
this annual fundraiser that raises funds to keep our communities safe.
For the second year, Crime Stoppers of Houston will reveal the winner
of the Dave Ward Media Excellence Award. This unique award will honor

activity by preventing it through educational community programming.
The non-profit, which fundraises year-round will directly benefit from
the luncheon’s proceeds to help further advance the Crime Stoppers’
mission. Attending the 2021 Houston’s Heroes Awards Luncheon is one
easy way to support Crime Stoppers and public safety. The event is open
to participation by all. Individual tickets start at $175 and sponsorship
opportunities are available.

We have done everything we can to try and reopen our doors, including
becoming the first theater in the country to install hospital grade UV lights
in our air filtration system. We even offered a safe and distanced indoor
concert as well as an indoor offering from our educational touring unit
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

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

April Gardening Tips
Mulch - If possible, buy Bagged Mulch. Bagging helps eliminate a great
many pests that die from various causes while in the bag. When you buy
‘loose’ mulch that is trucked to your home, you are also buying ants,
roaches, termites, etc…” Spend a little more on bagged material and save
lots of future pest problems. Keep your mulch at least 4” - 6” below the top
of your homes exposed foundation edge/side. This will aid in minimizing
pests in your home and allow for quick and accurate termite inspections.
Shrubs, Flowers and ground covers - Trim all shrubs/plants at least 12” -
18” back from your home. Do your best to create a plant free zone that is
18” - 24” wide around your home. The exception is your lawn - it can grow
up next to the slab as long as you keep it 4” - 6” below the top of the slab.
The most conducive to termite infestation are groundcover plantings,
growing high against your homes exterior or (especially) ivy that grows
on your walls.
Trees - Spray your trees at least twice annually. The spring spray
eliminates overwintering pests and fungi while preparing trees to resist
the pest onslaught of summer with residual pesticides. The fall spray also
kills pests from the summer, prevents most fungi from occurring over the
winter and puts your valuable asset off to a healthy winter’s dormancy.
Lawn - Spring is the perfect time to do a fungicide treatment to stop
brown patch in its tracks along with other fungi. If your lawn is thin and
weak in some areas, here are some important fundamentals: a) lawn
aeration” b) fertilization” c) weed control.
Most important is proper watering:
• Water once per week (unless you get a 1/2” rain or more - then do not
• Water heavily (1” - 2”) for total lawn coverage.
• In severe drought, water every 5th day.
• Water from 5 AM to 7 AM in the morning - NOT AT NIGHT.
• A heavy deep weekly watering makes the turf grow deeper, stronger
and more drought resistant roots.
• Less watering also saves you money!!
WHEN IS EARTH DAY?
This observance always falls on April 22 nd . On Earth Day, enjoy the tonic
of fresh air, contact with the soil and companionship with nature! Walk
through the woods in search of emerging wildflowers and green moss.
Go outside, no matter what the weather!
Ever wondered how Earth Day started? This observance arose from an
interest in gathering national support for environmental issues. In 1970,
San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord
Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration.
McConnell chose the spring equinox (March 21, 1970) and Nelson chose
April 22 nd . Millions of people participated and today Earth Day continues
to be widely celebrated with events on both dates.
The most common practice of celebration is to plant new trees for Earth
Day. Other Earth Day activities and ideas are: Plant wildflowers, Go
native! Plants thrive when they’re natural to your area, bring nature into
the garden with plants that attract butterflies, try an organic vegetable
garden and conserve water.
