January 24, 2008



Experience the thrill of the Winter Olympics and learn why an educator from Finland is spending time in Williamson County.  Those are two of the stories you'll find in this edition of IN FOCUS.  In the first video, we'll take you to Scales Elementary School for their annual WINTER OLYMPIC GAMES.  Watch as the students compete in events like the two-man bobsled, hockey and speed skating.  The second video is all about an EDUCATOR FROM FINLAND who's hoping to learn more about the WCS educational system.  

Some of the other stories you'll find in this edition of IN FOCUS include details on how WCS is hoping to educate children about the DANGERS OF SMOKING, and why a BEST-SELLING AUTHOR shared his adventures with students at Heritage Middle School.  Plus, you'll learn why seven WCS HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPALS recently traveled to Florida, and find out when the show DRAG RACE HIGH will make its small-screen debut.

This week, we also honor several teachers and students for their achievements.  Check out the TEACHER FEATURE section to find out which educators will be featured on WC-TV.  Also remember to check out the FUNDRAISER section for a list of ways to support Williamson County Schools, and don't forget to look at all the new snapshots in our PHOTO GALLERY

We hope you enjoy this issue of IN FOCUS.  Please encourage folks to SIGN UP if they haven't done so, and feel free to EMAIL US with any questions or comments.  Be on the lookout for the next IN FOCUS which will hit your inbox February 7.
