Issue 24
July 7, 2011


With the school year only a few weeks away, it's time to start preparing for the first day of class.  Beginning later this month, many Williamson County high schools will have ORIENTATION sessions for students.  We'll give you the dates and times for each.  Plus, parents should make sure their child has had the proper IMMUNIZATIONS before the start of school.  And don't forget to check out the valuable information regarding next month's TAX FREE HOLIDAY.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include information about TCAP RESULTS, and a video highlighting the first ever STEM CAMP at Heritage Middle School.  Plus, a healthier alternative to CHOCOLATE MILK is coming to a school cafeteria near you, and an important reminder for parents and community members regarding SCHOOL FUNDRAISERS.

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 July 21.
