Issue 9
December 2, 2010


December is finally here which means there are only a few more weeks to go before the end of the semester and the start of Winter Break.  First semester exams will be held December 14-17.

This issue of IN FOCUS features three videos for you to enjoy.  Thousands of eighth graders discovered a world of possibilities at the county's annual CAREER FAIR.  Plus, fifth graders from Pearre Creek Elementary School get acquainted with the students from Hillsboro during a special TRANSITION ACTIVITY.  And Veterans Day is a special time in Williamson County.  We'll show you some of the sights and sounds from VETERANS DAY events across the district.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include information about the district's inclement WEATHER POLICY and details regarding changes in the COMMON COMPREHENSIVE examinations.  Plus, find out which PRINCIPALS will be taking on new positions within the district, and learn how you can submit names for the county's newest ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

The holiday season is here.  There are plenty of holiday concerts, plays and other events happening at schools across the district in the coming weeks.  Our MUSIC/THEATER section is packed with information on holiday performances for you to enjoy.  And be sure to check out this week's ACADEMIC ALL-STARS.

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 not be released until December 2.
