It is Homecoming Week in the Maroa-Forsyth district.
Homecoming is a good opportunity for past students to make their way to their alma-matter. This year, the Maroa-Forsyth district has a couple of classes coming back for the weekend to celebrate their graduation anniversaries. According to Superintendent of Maroa-Forsyth Schools Mike Williams, this should be a special weekend for the classes of 1961 and 1991.

With school's in two different communities, the Maroa-Forsyth district faces a challenge in trying to get everyone involved in the activities, specifically the Homecoming pep rally and the parade, in Maroa. Williams says administrators do everything they can to make sure everyone can be a part of all the activities.

The Homecoming parade gets underway at 3 pm Friday afternoon, and will start down Washington Street and end in front of the old Maroa Middle School. Williams says the community support behind the annual parade makes it a well attended event. He says the organizations in the school and others make the parade the big success that it is.

You cannot mention Homecoming without talking about the football game. The top ranked Trojans host Argenta-Oreana this week and of course no homecoming is complete without the traditional Homecoming dance Saturday evening as well.
