Brock Odegard, who will teach an accelerated fifth-grade class at Hualapai Elementary this year, held his third annual "Welcome Back to School" barbecue Monday at Metcalf Park. His last two barbecues were done while he taught at Manzanita Elementary. He served hot dogs, watermelon, chips, cake and soda. He holds the barbecues because it gives him the chance to mingle with his new students and their parents, and also give parents a chance to meet each other.
