Issue 25
July 21, 2011


The countdown continues!  We're only three weeks from the start of the 2011-12 school year.  Williamson County students will return to the classroom for a half day on Thursday, August 11.  In the meantime, dozens of boys and girls are staying busy by participating in some of the district's exciting summer activities, like the new YAY CAMP and the always popular ENCORE CAMP.  We'll take you inside each event and show you how they're keeping local students engaged.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include information about school SUPPLY LISTS, START/DISMISSAL times for the 2011-2012 school year, and details pertaining to the district's new ASSESSMENT ANALYST.  Plus, we'll explain how a new PARTNERSHIP is giving business professionals a chance to connect with students, and answer your questions in this week's edition of the RUMOR MILL.

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 special Back to School issue of IN FOCUS will be released August 4.
