Issue 9 - November 22, 2006
This week's IN
FOCUS is coming out a day early because of the
Thanksgiving holiday. But just because its a short week
and a holiday doesn't mean we have any shortage of content!
There is LOTS to check out this week!
First of all, get those
video players ready, because we have lots this week. (Mac users,
CLICK HERE for a free download that will allow you to view
the videos!) Since it is Thanksgiving, we'll start off
with a piece on Williamson County Adult Education's ESOL
students learning how to make Thanksgiving dinner.

Helping others took center stage as students at Edmondson and
Kenrose elementary schools held a clothing drive for Glenview
Elementary School in Nashville.

can't give enough thanks to America's veterans.
