It has been a busy couple weeks here at IN FOCUS.  The school year is rolling right along.  Before you know it, Thanksgiving Break will be here.  In the meantime, we have lots of great stories and information for you.

This edition of IN FOCUS features six new videos.  They include a profile of Williamson County Schools' annual <COLLEGE NIGHT> and a look at how Nolensville students are <KEEPING FIT>.  Also, be sure and check out the many sights and sounds from Grassland Elementary School's <PIONEER DAY>.  There is also a video showcasing students at Winstead Elementary and how they raised thousands of dollars during the school's annual <WALKATHON>.  If you'd like to learn more about how Williamson County is working with other school districts in the pursuit of excellence, be sure and check out the <BENCHMARKING CONSORTIUM> video.  And last but not least, two of Williamson County Schools' most popular events, <HOOT, SCOOT & BOOGIE/BETHESDA FALL FEST>, were held on the same night.

Other stories this week include plans to either add or improve sidewalks at three Williamson County schools, a closer look at what Williamson County is doing to provide students with healthy meals and why a WCS employee will represent our area at a series of patriotic events in New York and Washington D.C.

As always, check out our FUNDRAISERS and PHOTO GALLERY sections.  Plus, we have several new MUSIC/THEATER performances to tell you about. 

Also, be sure to pass along the word to parents and business and community members to SIGN UP for IN FOCUS.  We want all Williamson County residents to be informed about their school district. Enjoy this issue, and look for the next issue on November 8.
