TCAP time is here!  Next week, Williamson County students in grades two through eight will take the TCAP ACHIEVEMENT TEST, which provides valuable information regarding student's progress in Tennessee.  Parents need to make sure the kids get plenty of rest and eat a healthy breakfast before testing.

This issue of IN FOCUS features two video stories.  In the first one, we'll take you to Chapman's Retreat Elementary School where a program called GIRLS ON THE RUN is teaching female students how to make healthy choices.  Plus, the boys and girls at Grassland Middle School love to read.  We'll show you how an event called the VSBA VOTING BREAKFAST is encouraging them to read as many books as possible.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include an important update to the district's new school VOLUNTEER GUIDELINES.  Plus, we've started a new feature called FISCAL FACTS, which gives readers a chance to ask questions regarding the Williamson County Schools budget.  And lunch just got healthier at schools across the district.  We'll tell you about our new line of SIGNATURE SALADS.

Also in this issue, we'll run through a list of Williamson County students who are getting recognized for all the right reasons in our AWARDS & ACCOLADES section.  And be sure to check out several snapshots from schools across the district in our PHOTO GALLERY.  Plus, we've got a list of more than a dozen upcoming performances happening in Williamson County schools.  Check them out in our MUSIC/THEATRE section.

We hope you enjoy all this issue of IN FOCUS has to offer.  Please encourage others to sign up for IN FOCUS to 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 April 29.
