IN THIS ISSUE...

 

We have four new videos for you to check out this week.  The first one takes you to Downtown Franklin where dozens of high school students are volunteering their free time to build a home for HABITAT FOR HUMANITY.  Next up, travel to Nashville for the annual STUDENT TELEVISION AWARDS.  Let's just say Williamson County students walked away with a lot of hardware.  Plus, we'll show you how the parents of some future kindergarteners are getting them READY FOR SCHOOL, and follow along as we surprise the secretaries and bookkeepers at two more schools with a LUXURY LIMO LUNCH.

It's TCAP TIME in Tennessee.  The annual exam for students in grades two through eight will be administered April 14-18 in Williamson County.  If you need to do some shopping, you might want to hold off a few weeks.  Tennessee will have another SALES TAX HOLIDAY later this month.  Plus, find out why Williamson County Schools is among the best around when it comes to keeping students SAFE ONLINE, and Franklin High School tops a recent list of the BEST HIGH SCHOOLS in Middle Tennessee.  Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include details about an upcoming CAMP FOR GIRLS, and a local student whose creativity recently won him a NATIONAL AWARD.  Find out which schools performed the best during a recent ACTIVITY CONTEST.

Be sure and check out our MUSIC/THEATER section for a list of musicals and other performances.  Plus, Scales Elementary School is preparing to hold its first annual Golf Tournament at Temple Hills.  Find out how you can get involved by going to our FUNDRAISER section.  Also, we have some amazing new works of art featured in our STUDENT ART section, and you'll find lots of smiling faces in our PHOTO GALLERY.

As always, be sure to encourage others to SIGN UP for IN FOCUS.  We want everyone to know what's going on in Williamson County Schools.  Feel free to EMAIL US with any questions or comments.  The next IN FOCUS will be released April 24.
