Issue 18
April 14, 2011


TCAP time is here.  Today, thousands of Williamson County students in grades three through eight began taking the TCAP TEST, which provides valuable information regarding student's progress in Tennessee.  Let's wish them the best of luck in the days to come!

This issue of IN FOCUS features three video stories.  In the first one, we'll take you to Grassland Elementary School and show you how a unique program called MATH MILITARY is teaching students about the importance of math in everyday life.  Plus, we'll take you behind the scenes of Fairview Middle School's award-winning RECYCLING PROGRAM.  And it's not the kind of sport you'd expect to see at high schools, but FENCING is catching on among some students at Centennial High.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include information about a series of public meetings called LET'S TALK SCHOOL, an update to the district's BUDGET PROCESS, and an important reminder regarding OUT-OF-ZONE TRANSPORTATION forms.  Plus, find out which Williamson County Destination ImagiNation teams advanced to this year's GLOBAL FINALS. 

Also in this issue, we'll tell you about four Williamson County students who are getting recognized for all the right reasons in our ACADEMIC ALL-STARS section.  And be sure to check out several snapshots from schools across the district in our PHOTO GALLERY.  Plus, Independence High School's production of Father of the Bride begins tonight.  Learn more about that and other performances in our MUSIC/THEATER section.

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 come out April 28.
