New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 7, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeltuna ft Snntfav A6fil 7 9M d 3 A Chamber to hold meriibership drive The Chamber of Commerce in Texas continues to be the largest coalition of business development in Texas and the last week of April has been designated as a time to recognize the impact of some 562 separate chambers of commerce Locally the Greater New Braun fels Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary association of businesses professionals and individuals work ing to build a healthy business envi ronment promote development and work effectively to improve the quality of life in New Braunfels Each yeai the chamber tailors its activities to reflect the needs of the community Members volun teer their time to serve on specific committees and task forces which may be ongoing or shortterm event oriented Currently there are 41 chamber committees and subcom mittees with specific goals The Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce member ship drive will be held April 17 and 18 Approximately 60 Blue Coat volunteers and prospective Blue Coats will call on businesses to tell them about the advantages of being a chamber member Submitted by the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of School cclwidar ittaktt no JMHUM Editor I wish to thank Mr Thomas Brute and Mr John Clay for their recent votes against the calendar that CISD will follow for the 199697 school year Again the CISD has decided to take two breaks in the second semester This time the first break is only 23 days after a twoWeek oneday Christ mas break I have to ask WHY The CISD Board voted fivetotwo to accept the calendar with the above gentlemen voting against accepting the calendar Mr Clay even presented a fourth alternative calendar but is seemed as though the board already had its mind made up As I have stated before two breaks in the second semes ter make no sense in the warm South Texas climate as they do in the North where there is in inclement weather The first weeklong break just 23 days after the long Christmas break has the students returning to school to finish the first six weeks and face six week tests Is this fair to the student who has trouble learning what is being taught No it is not But the school board saw fit to make it so Also included in this calendar is the fact that it was based on the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo timetable This break is placed so to allow students to participate in this event It is funny how none of the many San Antonio THE AROMATIQUE BATH by IROMATIQUE The Creator of Decorative

their breaks around this event I ask is it neces sary to make the calendar around this event Students in any of the San Anto nio school districts participate they participate under FFA and are not penalized by the school for missing school Many people who live in Comal County work for both San Antonio school districts and the New Braun fels school district which do not have two breaks in their calendars It would be family oriented if CISD could place its break to coincide with the other school districts But at last years cal endar meeting the assistant superin tendent stated that they did not want all of the children off from school at the same time By doing this the children of Comal County are unable to take advantage of the two theme parks that we have nearby during their breaks These two breaks also cause financial hardship in families where both parents work During these breaks young chil dren have to have care and cannot be left home alone Fulltime day care is expensive I do not know of many fam ilies that can take two vacations in the second semester its well as vacations during the summer unless they are Another item to look at is that TAAS testing takes place shortly after return ing to school from the first break Again I ask is this fair to the student who has trouble taking tests It may be with the amount of time that is spent on preparing for the TAAS test teaching the teaching the fundamentals of edu cation suffers The calendar which was chosen has school ending May 30 with no Memo rial Day holiday Many families look at starting their vacations Memorial Day weekend to avoid crowded resort areas where Northerners are later in the sum mer These are five additional days that are not needed for school if there is only one spring break The students would be out of school before Memo rial Day and the CISD would not face losing federal and state funds due to absences of students Also the teachers would not have a Saturday work day Im sure this Item is very popular with the teachers The other thing with one spring break that is the same as what the San Antonio and New Braunfels school districts are taking is that families who have members working in both dis tricts like Superintendent Dr Jerry Major is that they can both enjoy the same time oft AlsdY if there are aiiy sports activities scheduled during the CISD two breaks our students and administrators would be able to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing spring break with other family and friends who Jv in one of the other districts I urge the CISD to look seriou y 11 creating a calendar for the 9J school year that will have one break and allow families to havj me off together and place a minimal bur den on the families with small chil dren needing day care during these two breaks We pay a lot in school taxes lets not make us pay more than necessary for our childrens education by making working parents pay for two weeks of day care toppy How do you say Thank you to a dedicated group of professionals who are so giving of themselves When I have made requests of our County Sheriff to investigate stveral matters I have received cjuick courteous and efficient service When so much nega tivity abounds about government ser vices our county law enforcement can certainly boast that ijuick thinking and appropriate action are their What a delight it is to live in New
