The school year is winding down and summer break is almost here.  This issue of IN FOCUS features has many cool stories you don't want to miss.  First up, we'll introduce you to an amazing fourth grader nicknamed AWESOME DAWSON.  Find out how he's inspiring his fellow classmates and teachers.  Plus, students at Kenrose Elementary School travel the world at their annual INTERNATIONAL DAY event.  Next up, Williamson County Schools honors its top volunteers at the SHINING APPLE awards.  And take a ride on a LUXURY LIMO LUNCH with the secretaries and bookkeepers at Fairview Elementary and Westwood Elementary.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include details involving an upcoming COMMUNITY AWARENESS meeting to discuss gang activity, the dates and times of each high school GRADUATION CEREMONY and a reminder for parents who wish to apply for OUT OF ZONE approval.  Plus, we'll introduce you to the artist who transformed Grassland Elementary School's cafeteria into a TREE-HOUSE UTOPIA, and explain why the son of a FAMOUS AUTHOR made a visit to Scales Elementary in Brentwood.

As always, we like to recognize the achievements of Williamson County students and staff.  Some of the students making headlines this month include a PRESIDENTIAL SCHOLAR, two TN HONORS program winners and four SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS.  You'll also read about a third grade student who's joining the FIGHT AGAINST ARTHRITIS, and we'll explain why Heritage Elementary and Pinewood Elementary are getting some STATE RECOGNITION.

It has also been a good month for WCS educators.  More than 200 teachers received tenure this year.  Check out some of the photos at this year's TENURE TEA.  Also, find out which Scales Elementary educator was recently honored with the title of OUTSTANDING TEACHER

Be sure and check out all the new faces in our PHOTO GALLERY.  Plus, you'll find information on two upcoming performances in the MUSIC/THEATRE section.  Please remind folks to SIGN UP to receive IN FOCUS and as always, feel free to EMAIL US with any comments or suggestions.
