February 7, 2008



Williamson County Schools goes through a new accreditation process, and some special secretaries and bookkeepers experience the largest luxury limo lunch send-off yet.  Those are two of the videos you'll find in this edition of IN FOCUS.  In the first, we'll show you the new ACCREDITATION PROCESS.  Also this week, we'll take you on a ROAD TRIP to Walnut Grove Elementary School's annual Book Fair, and introduce you to eight students who recently made their RADIO DEBUT.  Plus, you won't want to miss this month's LUXURY LIMO LUNCH.

Also this week, Williamson County Schools honors its 2007-2008 TEACHERS OF THE YEAR, and students at every school are gearing up for the annual SUPERINTENDENT'S ART SHOW at the Frist Center.  COLD AND FLU SEASON is in full swing and we have important information for parents.  Plus, find out how you can help fight heart disease during AMERICAN HEART MONTH.  Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include a group of high school seniors who are candidates for the PRESIDENTIAL SCHOLAR PROGRAM, and information detailing the WCS SEVERE WEATHER cancellation policy.

Also this week, we have plenty of new pictures in our PHOTO GALLERY and some new additions to the STUDENT SPOTLIGHT.  Plus, there are several upcoming performances you might want to check out in our MUSIC/THEATER section.  Enjoy this issue and look for the next installment February 21.
