Coordinated School Health: A Success Story

 


ISSUE 22
July 17, 2008

IN THIS ISSUE...

 

Williamson County Schools is taking action to protect the more than 5,000 students whose social security numbers were posted online.  In this issue, you will find the latest information regarding the SECURITY BREACH.

As always, we have several video stories for you to check out.  First off, take a trip to the computer lab with the students at this year's Williamson County Schools TECHNOLOGY CAMP.  Then, see how some students spent their summer learning about the English language and customs at the annual ELL SUMMER SCHOOL.    

With the school year almost upon us, it's time to start preparing for the first day of class.  In the weeks ahead, each Williamson County high school will have its own ORIENTATION DAY for students so that they receive their class schedule and become familiar with the building and staff.  Parents should also become familiar with the various START AND DISMISSAL TIMES for their child's school.

In this issue you will also find information pertaining to several JOB OPPORTUNITIES within Williamson County Schools.  Plus, WCS Health/Wellness Coordinator Ken Brooks brings us an inspiring true story of a central office staffer who lost 20 lbs. by adopting a few HEALTHY HABITS.

Remember to encourage people to SIGN UP to receive IN FOCUS, and as always, feel free to EMAIL US with any questions or comments.  And be sure and check our very special Back to School edition of IN FOCUS which will be sent July 31.
