Issue 12 - January 11, 2007

WELCOME BACK!

It's time to get excited about second semester!  We hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing holiday break and are ready to start 2007 off right!   IN FOCUS is also coming off a break so we're a little short in the video department this week.  But that doesn't mean we have a shortage of stories and information for you!

On the video side of things, we take a look at the life cycle of the science kits used by Williamson County Schools elementary school classes.  CLICK HERE to watch.

We have plenty for you to read this week!  Looking at issues affecting the entire district, an important vote by the School Board concerning new zone lines is quickly approaching. CLICK HERE for more info.  Also, dates have been set for Kindergarten registration.  CLICK HERE to see.  Registration is also open for Franklin High School's Dance Clinic for elementary school students.  CLICK HERE for info. Organizers of the ATLAS/ATHENA programs in Williamson County Schools are looking to get high schoolers involved in a new magazine to spotlight student success.  CLICK HERE for more information on how you can get involved.  Plus, Williamson County Schools has taken a big step to improve the accuracy of its financial reporting with a new software package.  CLICK HERE to check it out. 

On the individual school front, an independent study project for two Heritage Middle School students has turned into an effort to try and change the world.  CLICK HERE to read about their very worthy efforts.  Congratulations are in order for two Franklin High School teachers who recently earned National Board Certification.  CLICK HERE to read their story.  Kudos also go out to Centennial High School's Marching Cougars who recently took home some nice hardware from events at the Fiesta Bowl.  CLICK HERE to read all about it.   Plus, Edmondson Elementary School students will benefit from a $1,000 music grant awarded by Target.  CLICK HERE for more. 

As usual, please encourage folks to SIGN UP to receive IN FOCUS, and feel free to EMAIL US with any questions or comments.
