Tips for a Healthy Winter


December 4, 2008



Winter break will be here before you know it, which means first semester exams are right around the corner.  The exams will take place December 16-19. 

In the meantime, we have several videos for you to enjoy.  In the first one, meet a Williamson County senior who is a finalist for the HIGH SCHOOL HEISMAN award.  Plus, it's never too soon for students to start thinking about their future.  That's why Williamson County Schools created the annual World of Possibilities CAREER FAIR.  Also, she sings; she plays guitar; and she's only 10-years-old.  Meet the fifth grader who's become something of a SINGING SENSATION.  And the WCS SPORTS REPORT looks at how the Franklin High School football team made it to the state championship game.      

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include details regarding the State's new GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS, information about the Williamson County School District's policy toward weather-related SCHOOL CLOSINGS and tips for a HEALTHY WINTER.  Plus, hundreds of fans cheer on the Franklin High School football team at a REBEL RALLY, Grammy award-winning artist Michael McDonald raises thousands of dollars for the FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL BAND and two Williamson County band members are recognized for their MUSICAL TALENTS.

We're into the holiday season and it is showing up in Williamson County Schools.  There are lots of holiday concerts, plays, and other events going on.  Our MUSIC/THEATRE section is packed with information on holiday performances for you to enjoy.  Plus, you'll find snapshots from schools across the district in our PHOTO GALLERY.  And don't forget to check out our STUDENT ART section.

Please pass along the word to SIGN UP for IN FOCUS to keep on top of what's going on inside Williamson County Schools.  As always, feel free to EMAIL US with any questions or comments.
