This edition of IN FOCUS features four new videos.  In the first one, find out why students at Edmondson Elementary School are developing a greater appreciation for the WRITTEN WORD.  Plus, we'll take you inside Grassland Middle School where a special program is helping students take a STAND AGAINST BULLIES.  And watch as high school juniors and seniors explore their options for higher education at Williamson County's annual COLLEGE FAIR.  Of course, don't forget to check out the highlights and scores from athletic events across the county in the WCS SPORTS REPORT.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this edition of IN FOCUS include a FLU GUIDE for parents and details on why Williamson County Schools is being recognized for keeping kids SAFE ONLINE.  Plus, we'll explain why a kindergartener at Chapman's Retreat Elementary School recently appeared on NATIONAL TV.  And the students at Heritage Middle received a ROYAL VISIT recently when a king from Nigeria made a stop at the school.

Don't forget to check out the IN FOCUS PHOTO GALLERY, which features more than 50 snapshots from schools across the county.  Plus, there are many musical and theatrical performances happening this time of year.  Go to our MUSIC/THEATRE section for all the details.

Also, be sure to pass along the word to other community members to SIGN UP for IN FOCUS.  We want all Williamson County residents to be informed about their school district.  Enjoy this issue, and look for the next issue on October 29.
