                                            around the house or on a key holder in the kitchen.
                                            Security Away from Home: You must know that anytime,
                                            anywhere, you can be a victim of a crime. These thugs are
                                            looking for easy targets. Just because a business has secu-
                                            rity personnel in the parking lot does not make you immune
                                            from being a target of a crime. When you pull into a park-
                                            ing lot, no matter where you are going, be aware of your
                                            surroundings. Be alert and pay attention to people walking
                                            and vehicles driving through the area. Avoid going shop-
                                            ping alone. Try to park under parking lot lights if it is dark
                                            or if it will be dark when you come out. Lock your vehicle
                                            when you get out. Before you leave the store or business
                                            have your car keys in hand. Don’t be fumbling through your
                                            pockets or digging in your purse. Avoid using your cell phone
                                            while walking to and from your vehicle. This is a major
                                            distraction. Ladies, avoid carrying a large purse. Use a small
                                            purse you can place securely in front of you or under your
                                            arm or use a fanny pack. If someone does grab your purse,
                                            especially if they are in a moving vehicle, let them have it. If
                                            you are making a night deposit from your business, do not get
                                            lax. Have another person follow you to the bank. Don’t make
                                            deposits at the same time every day or week. If you feel some-
                                            body is following you, drive to the nearest police station or to a
                                            well-lit parking lot where there are other people. Invest in a
                                            cellular phone even if it’s just for emergencies.

                                            St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School will continue its expan-
                                            sion to middle school with the addition of 7th grade in the

                                            recent acquisition of a large modular building will provide
                                            space for a fully-equipped middle school science lab to
                                            complement the schoolís computer lab. If current enroll-
                                            ment trends continue, Varisco has plans to add another 2nd
                                            grade classroom, also. St. Clare School, located in Clear

nity for girls to improve and refine their skills, as well as
introduce those girls who may not have had experience in
the game of volleyball. The camp will include drills and

feel for competitive, yet fun matches. The camp will be led
by varsity head coach Geoff Stresman, in his 4th year at
LSA. Coach Stresman was an assistant head coach at
Concordia University, Ann Arbor before coming to LSA.
Also leading the camp will be LSA assistant coaches Kelly

ball team has finished second in the state in TAPPS 5A in
two of the last three years. You may register for this camp

       SUMMER OPPORTUNITY FOR TEENS
Students who engage in service-learning are more likely to
be politically and socially active in their communities, serve
as role models and participate in service as adults, says a
2005 study by Points of Light Foundation. Bay Area teens
may take the first step in becoming leaders in their commu-
nity through the Commanders Program. The summer day
course promotes community service and civic involvement
through classroom activities and service projects. The pro-
gram additionally offers community service hours needed
for credit appeal, graduation requirements and college ap-
plications. Participants may register to participate in one of
four weeklong sessions scheduled for June 26-30, July 10-
14, July 17-21, and July 24-28. The Commanders Program
will be held Monday through Friday from 12:00pm to
4:00pm, at the United Way Service Center at 1300 Bay Area
Boulevard, Houston. The opportunity is open to those 13
to 17 years of age. Registration is on a first-come first-
serve basis for up to 20 students per week, at a cost of $5.00.
Call 281-282-6035 or email tinab@volunteerhouston.org for
registration information. The Commanders Program is of-
fered by Volunteer Houston Bay Area, a nonprofit organi-
zation with a mission to promote volunteerism.

                                             At Family Outreach Clear Lake/Bay Area, we believe
                                             that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

                                             training and ongoing professional support. Our new vol-

child will receive a free t-shirt, and the best part about the
whole event is that it is All Free! Kids will learn what it
means to help others as they create a special blanket that
says "Jesus loves me" in both English and Spanish. Plus,
every child will personalize a Spanish Bible Book to send
along with the blanket to a child in Latin America. This is
all part of the 2006 Operation Kid to Kid mission program.
