August 19, 2010



The 2010-2011 school year is off to a great start in Williamson County.  Over 31,000 students returned to the classroom Thursday, August 12, and IN FOCUS was there to capture all of the excitement.  We interviewed students, parents, teachers and principals from all over the district to get their thoughts about the FIRST DAY of school.

The district's final strategic planning COMMUNITY MEETINGS will be held Thursday, August 19.  We'll explain why it's important for parents and community members to attend.  Plus, a group of Williamson County science teachers recently made a special trip to CHEEKWOOD.  Learn how their visit will help them in the classroom.  And the district held RIBBON CUTTINGS for three new schools August 8.  We'll take you inside each building for the ceremonies.

In other news, Williamson County Schools is well ahead of the state average when it comes to student performance on the ACT EXAM.  Check out the latest scores.  Plus, parents can now go online to check out the LUNCH MENUS for each school.  And recent RENOVATIONS have helped to improve the look at Brentwood High School.  We'll tell you which areas got a facelift.

Also in this issue, the district's MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT reveals how it has been keeping busy this summer; Grassland Elementary School welcomes a brand new MURAL; and cross country runners will get to stretch their legs at a NEW LOCATION this season.  Plus, time is running out for high school juniors and seniors who might be interested in signing up for the district's ACE MENTOR program.

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 be released August September 2.
