   For the second-straight year, young kids, families, teachers and high school band students rounded out the end of the school year with an early-morning walk, packing the track.

   Pack the Track is a special event of the “Morning Mile” program that Dale Nehls, physical education teacher, offers to students, parents and staff.

   Every morning (except Wednesdays) students, parents and staff meet at the Barlow Park/ Journey track at 7:30 a.m. to kick-start the day with a walk or run.
