They say time flies when you're having fun.  Well, we must be having a blast because autumn is already here and the second quarter grading period is well underway.  Fall Break begins this weekend, giving students and teachers a well deserved break.  They will have Monday, October 18 and Tuesday, October 19 off before returning to the classroom October 20.

This issue of IN FOCUS features four videos.  In the first one, we'll take you to the city of Nolensville and show you how a $250,000 grant made this year's WALK TO SCHOOL Day extra special.  Plus, one of country music's biggest stars made a surprise trip to Grassland Middle School.  We'll show you how the students reacted to a recent visit by TIM MCGRAW.  And watch as high school juniors and seniors explore their options for higher education at Williamson County Schools 2010 COLLEGE FAIR.  Last but not least, we'll show you how Williamson County Schools is improving communication with parents through the launch of a NEW WEBSITE

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include an update on the district's county-wide REZONING PLAN, the latest questions to hit the RUMOR MILL and the introduction of a brand new section called ACADEMIC ALL-STARS.  Plus, we'll show you how students at Winstead Elementary School are raising thousands of dollars to purchase NEW TECHNOLOGY.  And the WCS Student Support Services Department is now offering SPECIALIZED TRAINING for the parents of students with special needs.

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 AWARDS & ACCOLADES.  And there are plenty of musical and theatrical performances which will be happening in the next few weeks.  Be sure to 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 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 October 28.
