Issue 6 - October 12, 2006
Welcome to the sixth
issue of IN FOCUS. As the title of
this issue suggests, it's break time around here. But
don't worry, IN FOCUS isn't taking any breaks!
We're continuing to bring you all the great news coming out of
Williamson County Schools. But it's going to be a quiet
couple days, because Williamson County students and teachers ARE
getting ready to take a break! Fall
break for Williamson County Schools starts tomorrow, October 13,
and goes through October 17.
This week we're making
up for having no video in the last issue! You can
view a video profiling Hunters Bend Elementary School's
"Literacy Learning Initiative" which is serving as a model for
the rest of Williamson County. You can also read
about and view a video on K-12 Planet, which allows Williamson
County middle school and high school parents and students to
monitor grades and attendance online. There is a
profile of Williamson County Schools College Night which brought
out nearly 1,000 parents and students to the CoolSprings
Galleria. Also, be sure and check out the WC-TV Teacher
Feature video. You can also find out how to nominate your
favorite teacher for this award.
Other highlights this
issue include information on several Williamson County schools
that were recently awarded music grants from the Brentwood/Cool Springs
Chamber of Commerce. Plus, we have an update from last
issue: Fairview Elementary School has been named a State Title I
Distinguished School! You can also read about a Crockett
Elementary School student whose award winning artwork is on
display at a local restaurant. Also, you can read about how Page
Middle School students recently put on an art and music show to
mark the end of the first grading period. We have an update on the construction
progress at the new Longview Elementary School in Spring Hill,
and the new Nolensville Elementary School. We also have information about the groundbreaking at Nolensville
Elementary happening October 22. Plus, this is
parent-teacher conference season, so we have some tips on how to
make the visit with your child's teacher more productive.
As always, check out
our FUNDRAISERS and
PHOTO GALLERY sections.
Plus we have some new drawings from some Bethesda Elementary
students in our STUDENT ART
section. Also, be sure to pass
along the word to parents and business and community members to
SIGN UP for
IN FOCUS. We want all Williamson County
residents to be informed about their school district!
