April 26, 2012


TCAP time is here.  Starting tomorrow, thousands of Williamson County students in grades three through eight will begin taking the TCAP assessment. We have plenty of information about this year's TCAP test in our TCAP PREVIEW as well as some tips for both parents and students.  Plus, we'll also answer a few questions regarding TCAP in this week's RUMOR MILL section.

This issue of IN FOCUS features five video stories.  In the first one, we'll take you to Franklin High School for a look at the school's EARLY CHILDHOOD education program.  Then, we'll head south to Spring Hill where eighth graders at Spring Station Middle School paid homage to the American classic To Kill a Mockingbird with a SPECIAL PICNIC.  Some of the other videos you'll find in this issue include a look at Pearre Creek Elementary School's annual world dance and ART EXHIBIT, a special workshop for ESL PARENTS and PI NIGHT at College Grove.

Also in this issue of IN FOCUS, we'll update you on the BUDGET PROCESS, introduce the district's new FINE ARTS SPECIALIST and honor the winners of this year's SHINING APPLE AWARDS.  Speaking of awards, seven Williamson County students were recently named ACADEMIC ALL-STARS.  We'll tell you who they are.  Plus, more than two dozen students from across the county are recognized for their accomplishments in the areas of academics, athletics and the arts in this week's edition of AWARDS & ACCOLADES.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue include the unveiling of the district's new BYOT LOGO, new changes to the GED TEST and the results of this year's statewide DESTINATION IMAGINATION competition and YOUTH IN GOVERNMENT conference.  Plus, we'll tell you about several upcoming events including Middle College High School's ARTS, BEATS & EATS fundraiser, the RAVENWOOD RUNWAY fashion show and GIRLS TEC CAMP.

We hope you enjoy all this issue of IN FOCUS has to offer.  Please encourage others to SIGN UP for IN FOCUS so they can keep on top of what's going on inside Williamson County Schools.  All they need to do is send us an EMAIL letting us know they'd like to begin receiving IN FOCUS.  The next issue will be released May 10.
