What’s Happening in WCS

Williamson County Schools

Things are really gearing up with Williamson County Schools as they hurdle toward the Fall Break. Take a look at what is happening in these area schools.

Centennial High –
CHS has announced the dates for their Holiday Craft Show. Nearly 200 vendors from a dozen states will set up at the 16th annual event on November 23rd and 24th with tickets being only $4, $5 for a two-day pass.

Hunter’s Bend Elementary –
The Invest in Your Child Campaign has begun. Suggested donations are on the PTO website, but any donation is appreciated. This is the only fundraiser for the year and funds are used to pay for technology, a computer teacher, part time secretary, and anything else not covered in the county budget. Your donation is tax deductible. We will celebrate our success on a Free Family Fun Night on October 18th.

Ravenwood High –
Mrs. Hyde’s, Nursing Education class has begun clinical rotations at NHC Place Cool Springs. Students spend two hours every Tuesday and Thursday morning from October through March working with residents of NHC Place to prepare for clinical. The students have been learning and practicing vital signs, bed making techniques, communication skills, personal hygiene care, positioning and ambulating patients, nutrition and have recently become certified in CPR for the Healthcare Provider. At the end of this year, these students will take the Tennessee State Certified Nursing Assistant exam and graduate with a CNA certification.

Chapman’s Retreat Elementary –
Chapman’s Retreat Elementary School Art Department received a Williamson County Schools Visual Arts Mini Grant of $514.23. The grant will go toward the purchase of a printing press and printing blankets. Louise Braswell, CRES art teacher who applied for the grant said “the acquisition of the printing press will allow us another modality to reinforce classroom knowledge with the related arts in a real world context. For instance, 4th graders studying Native Americans can create their own Native American symbol and print it multiple times in different ways. Their symbols can then be utilized as part of their portfolio, classroom writing material, take home to share what they are learning at school, or as a springboard for further exploration into the culture of Native Americans. Each grade level will be using the printing press during their art class each year. The possibilities are endless.”

Hillsboro Elementary/Middle –
The book fair is coming up in October from the 15th – 21st. The elementary school will hold the Muffins for Mummy event to kick off their fair. Also look for information later this week on the Barnaroo festival held
October 19th from 5-7 p.m.

Edmondson Elementary –
Artwork by Edmondson Elementary Students both Past and Present will be featured in the new books section of the Williamson County Public Library during the month of October. A reception for the featured students and guests will be held later in the month to honor and recognize their creativity and achievement as young artist. Art Teacher Eliza “Beth” Perthel said I’m “proud of all my Edmondson Artists as they grow in Skills and Techniques.”
