This issue of IN FOCUS features several videos for you to enjoy.  In the first one, we'll take you to Page Middle School and show you how a program called PANTHER PRIDE is putting an end to bullying.  Plus, DOZENS OF DADS recently filled the cafeteria at Grassland Elementary School.  We'll explain why.  And find out how schools across the district used INAUGURATION DAY to teach students about American history.   

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include information regarding OPEN ZONED schools, an update on the SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH and the complete 2009-2010 SCHOOL CALENDAR.  Plus, elementary schools will begin KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION soon.  Find out the dates and times. And if you would like to see more sidewalks and bike paths in your neighborhood, there is a way you can contribute to the mid-state's next BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN Plan.

The WC-TV prize patrol recognized four of our district's hardest-working teachers this month.  Find out which educators received this special honor in the WC-TV TEACHER FEATURE section.  Of course, teachers aren't the only ones being rewarded for all their hard work.  In this issue of IN FOCUS, you'll find four new additions to our STUDENT SPOTLIGHT, which honors students for winning first place in state and national competitions.

Also, be sure and check out the PHOTO GALLERY, where you'll find dozens of snapshots from schools across the district.  Plus, dozens of Williamson County students will perform with the Williamson County Honor Band this weekend.  Find out how you can watch their amazing concert for free in our MUSIC/THEATRE section.

As always, please encourage others to SIGN UP for IN FOCUS if they do not already receive it.  And be sure and SEND US any comments or suggestions you might have.  The next issue of IN FOCUS will be released on February 12.
