This issue of IN FOCUS features five videos.  In the first one, we'll show you how local students at Hillsboro K-8 are recording AUDIO BOOKS for the library.  Plus, we'll take you on a hayride with kindergarteners at Hunters Bend Elementary School as they visit GENTRY'S FARM.  It's not all fun and games at Fairview Elementary, where the school recently held its annual SOCK HOP.  Find out how this special event is helping others.  Meantime, dozens of educators from around the world recently traveled to Williamson County as part of the FULBRIGHT PROGRAM.  Find out what they thought of our school district.  And the high school football regular season will soon come to an end.  Find out which games are on tap for this weekend in the WCS SPORTS REPORT.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include information about changes to the STATE REPORT CARD, details regarding ZONE LINES for the district's three newest schools and a collection of dates and times for VETERANS DAY programs across the district.  Also, officials are one step closer to naming the district's newest schools.  Find out which SCHOOL NAMES are being considered.

Don't forget to check out the IN FOCUS PHOTO GALLERY which features dozens of snapshots from across the district.  Plus, we honor a new group of students in this month's STUDENT SPOTLIGHT.  And there are a ton of musical and theatrical performances which will be happening in the next few weeks.  Be sure to check them out in our MUSIC/THEATRE.

As always, please remind folks to SIGN UP to receive IN FOCUS, and SEND US any comments or suggestions you might have.  The next issue of IN FOCUS will be released November 12.
