The PACER Test, or Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run, is an aerobic capacity test used by FitnessGram. According to the FitnessGram instructions, it is a 20-meter shuttle run, where students run back and forth as many times as they can between two markers, using an audio CD to guide their pace. The test is one way that middle school physical educators can determine the aerobic fitness of students.

Morgan County Schools is deeply saddened by the unexpected loss of Ms. Vicki Pointer. Ms. Pointer was a dedicated teacher, colleague, and friend to the Wartburg Community. She taught at Central High School for 38 years. Ms. Pointer taught Sophomore English and Drama. Her Drama students were always excited when it was their turn to star in her theatrical productions! She was kind, compassionate and dedicated to the students of Wartburg Central High School. We extend heartfelt sympathy to her family, friends and WCHS family. She will be greatly missed. Ms. Pointers family will receive friends on Friday, June 1, 2018, at the First Baptist Church in Norris, TN, from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m; the funeral will follow at 7:00 p.m. Fraker Funeral Home in Kingston is handling the arrangements.
