April 29, 2010



We have two videos for you to enjoy this week.  First, we'll take you to Brentwood where a recent trip to a popular restaurant turned out to be a real learning experience for students in Brentwood High School's LIFE SKILLS training class.  Then, we'll head west to Fairview Elementary School and show you how a recent visit by the Tennessee TITANS CARAVAN helped students prepare for the annual TCAP Achievement Test.

Also in this issue, information about next month's LET'S TALK SCHOOL meeting with Dr. Looney; questions and answers regarding the WCS BUDGET; and photos from this year's SHINING APPLE AWARDS.  The awards keep coming in for our district's media production students.  Find out which schools brought home the hardware at this year's STUDENT EMMYS.  And it pays to exercise.  Just ask the winners of this year's WALK ACROSS WILLIAMSON activity contest.

Be sure and check out our MUSIC/THEATRE section which contains information about several upcoming performances including a forensics showcase and Sunset Middle School's production of Pirates of Penzance.  Plus, we have a whole slew of new faces featured in the STUDENT SPOTLIGHT section, as well as snapshots from schools across the county in our PHOTO GALLERY.

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 May 13.
