— Shoes, half-filled drink cups and popcorn marked the path Tuesday to a popular bounce inflatable at Athens Elementary School.

It was just one stop in a long list of field day activities that included relay races, tugs-of-war competition, hoop tosses and more at the annual end of school year event.

City school students break for the summer after a half-day Thursday while county schools let out after a full day.
