ISSUE 20
June 5, 2008

IN THIS ISSUE...

 

The pools, malls and parks are a little more crowded these days.  Summer break is finally here and Williamson County students are enjoying some much needed time off.  Here at IN FOCUS, we are still rolling right along and will continue doing so all summer.

We have three videos for you to check out this issue.  First, you'll hear from two Fairview High School graduates as they explain how they built a one-of-a-kind BRIEFCASE COMPUTER.  Next, we'll take a trip to Page Middle School where a group of seventh graders are sending some special BOOKS TO AFRICA.  Lastly, we will unveil the brand-new IN FOCUS LOGO and introduce you to the student who created it.

Some of the other stories you'll find in this issue of IN FOCUS include information about SUMMER CONSTRUCTION at Williamson County schools and the results of a new survey that answers the question, "How many Williamson County students have INTERNET ACCESS at home?"  Plus, a new study shows Williamson County students are above the national norm in terms of TECHNOLOGY LITERACY, teachers learn new skills at SUMMER CLASSES and new BRAIN RESEARCH could change the way teachers approach go about their daily lessons.

The next IN FOCUS will come out a week later than usual on June 26.  Please encourage folks to SIGN UP and as always EMAIL US with any questions or comments.
