Issue 9 - November 22, 2006

GIVING THANKS...

     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.  CLICK HERE to check it out.  Helping others took center stage as students at Edmondson and Kenrose elementary schools held a clothing drive for Glenview Elementary School in Nashville.  CLICK HERE to see more.  We can't give enough thanks to America's veterans.  CLICK HERE to see how some schools honored them on Veteran's Day.  Centennial High School students got to show off some of their work to the public at School Night at the Apple Store at the Mall at Green Hills recently.  CLICK HERE for more.  Williamson County Career and Tech students got a chance to learn more about opportunities available to them at the Career and Tech Leadership Day earlier this month.  CLICK HERE for more.

     If that isn't enough for you, there's more!  We can all give thanks for the fact that we are served by some of the best schools in Tennessee. CLICK HERE to check out Williamson County Schools' report card from the Tennessee Department of Education.  Zoning is always an important issue here in Williamson County and meetings have been set to learn more about some possible changes.  CLICK HERE for more.  Also, we're getting into snow day season.  CLICK HERE to learn about how Williamson County Schools will handle any school cancellations.  Students, you also have a chance to help name a fun run coming up at Crockett Elementary!  CLICK HERE for details.

     Also, be sure and check out the new STUDENT SPOTLIGHT section.   Here we'll feature Williamson County students who have won state or national championships.  This week, we honor Page High School's Marching Band, Brentwood High School's girls volleyball team, a cross country runner from Independence High, a cross country runner from Brentwood High, and several broadcasting students from Brentwood High.

     As always, be sure to pass along the word to SIGN UP for IN FOCUS to those who haven't already done so.   Please feel free to EMAIL US with any questions or comments.  Have a great Thanksgiving!
