Williamson County Schools

It’s fall and it’s busy in Williamson County Schools! Check out what some of our schools have been up to in the past few weeks!

BarnarooHillsboro Elementary & Middle School

Join Hillsboro School (HEMS) for their Fall festival, “Barnaroo,” on Saturday, October 19th. The festival and silent auction are scheduled from 5-8 at HEMS in Lieper’s Fork. The school will be transformed into a semblance of a barn, with activities for kids of all ages.

This is a yearly fundraising event to support Hillsboro Elementary and Middle Schools. All proceeds will support the Hillsboro PTO in supporting student activities. The goal is to raise $14,000 this year. Admission at the door is only $7 or $25 for the whole family.
