Take a trip back in time through your yearbook. The pictures from homecoming are priceless. So are the memories.

At Marathon High School homecoming has not existed since 1995. The school board cancelled the fall celebration after student pranksters took their fun too far with toilet paper, eggs and other vandalism.

"The school board decided to cancel it forever and we this past summer were working very hard to get it back," said Jenna Sonnantag, Student Council President.

And they did. Four senior student council officers presented a plan with strict rules to the school board. It passed unanimously.

"It is zero tolerance. If anything is reported and we don't find out about it by 11 o-clock the next morning, we have a committee to decide whether homecoming continues for the rest of the year or years to come," Sonnantag added.

"I think the most exciting part, it originated with the students," said Gary Adams, Marathon Schools Superintendent.

Homecoming festivities at Marathon High School will kick off next Wednesday and will end Friday night with a football game and dance.
