KEEP OUR LAKES CLEAN!

Please help us keep our community beautiful by NOT THROWING trash

and debris into the lakes. In addition, there is NO SWIMMING, BOATING

OR FISHING in the LAKES.

PLEASE BE OBSERVANT OF POSTED TRAFFIC

SIGNS, SPEED AND GATES

Please respect the posted traffic speeds and stop signs in our community.

They are here to make our community a safe and pleasant place to live.

With the pleasant weather, our children are out enjoying our amenities.

Use extra caution when driving near our parks and community pools.

Please also use the correct side of the gates for entry and exit.

PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE DUCKS AND GEESE

Spring is the air and this lovely weather has many of us visiting our

community parks and ponds. It can be tempting to feed the ducks

as geese as many of us have grown up thinking that this was an

environmentally responsible and humane way to dispose of old or stale

bread. However, feeding ducks and geese is actually unhealthy and

potentially dangerous for the birds. This seemingly generous act, in fact,

can be extremely harmful.

Bread and similar products such as crackers, chips, doughnuts and

popcorn have little nutritional value. Without healthy food and proper

nutrition the ducks and geese will quickly succumb to disease and death.

Feeding ducks and geese can lead to the following problems as well:

• Duckling malnutrition - in areas where ducks are regularly fed bread

the ducklings will not receive adequate nutrition for proper growth and

development.

• Overcrowding - Where food is easy to come by, ducks and other waterfowl

will lay more eggs and the pond or lake will become overcrowded. This

makes it more difficult for the birds to seek out healthier food sources

and increases territorial aggression, especially during mating season. It

will also cause ducks to cross busy streets in search of food.

• Pollution - What happens to all that bread that is not eaten? It causes

algae growths, pollution and can eventually eradicate fish and other life

in the vicinity.

• Diseases - A diet rich in carbohydrates leads to greater fecal production

and bird feces easily harbors bacteria responsible for numerous diseases

including avian botulism.

• Attraction of pests - Rotting leftover food attracts other unwelcome

pests such as rats, mice and insects. These pests can also harbor additional

diseases that can be dangerous to humans.

If you care about ducks and geese, do not feed them. They can live

longer, healthier lives by relying on natural food sources such as aquatic

plants, seeds, grasses and insects rather than taking handouts from willmeaning

humans. Now that you know, you can help by not feeding the

ducks and geese and by educating other duck lovers.

CFISD STUDENTS’ WORK SELECTED TO HOUSTON

RODEO SCHOOL ART AUCTION

Three student artists had their artwork selected to advance to the

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) School Art auction.

Cypress Woods High School freshman Magdalena Baughman (Bridger

& Poco), Jersey Village High School junior Amy Muery (Laying Hen) and

Hamilton Middle School eighth grade student Ravine Cohen (Sunkissed

Stallions) each had their work chosen to advance.

“Having student artwork chosen as the top entry for the Houston

Livestock Show and Rodeo is already a huge achievement, but to have

it selected for auction is an added bonus and rare opportunity,” said

Lee Carrier, CFISD coordinator of visual arts. “I am proud of our CFISD

art students for receiving this honor. I would like to thank the HLSR

School Art Committee for continuing to support CFISD’s K-12 th grade art

students. I would also like to thank art teachers of the auction students

for providing this contest opportunity at their campuses.”

Since 1965, the HLSR has recorded more than 9.4 million entries to

its School Art Program. HLSR provides students the opportunity to

earn scholarships, visit workshops and a chance to have their artwork

displayed at the Hayloft Gallery during the Rodeo itself.

MENTAL HEALTH INTERVENTION TEAM EARNS

members through prevention, intervention and safety. Established during

the 2018-2019 school years by the Board of Trustees and Superintendent

departments-Guidance and Counseling, Psychological Services and

professional counselors, two licensed psychologists and two mental

health police officers.

All nominations submitted through the third (Nov. 1, 2020 to Jan. 31,

THEATER/FINE ARTS

A.D PLAYERS AT THE GEORGE THEATER

5420 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77056

Box Office: 713-526-2721

Hours: 10 AM-6 PM, Monday-Friday

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 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.

their families and honored for their contributions to their chapter and their community.

service, leadership development and cultural experiences. Alongside their mothers, the 2021 class performed over 4,715.75 hours of community

impressive group of young ladies who lead by example. Our community has benefited greatly from their leadership and volunteer efforts. We wish

them much success in the future.”

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.)

• 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.
