Park High School's homecoming week drew to a close Friday with festive activities that followed an administrative warning that misbehavior could threaten future school celebrations.


The final day of homecoming began with Park Principal Craig Paul meeting separately with juniors and seniors after school leaders learned of plans by juniors to throw marbles at seniors taking part in a choreographed dance during an afternoon pep fest.

"It generated out of a safety concern," Paul said of the meetings.

Paul said students were told misbehavior would not be tolerated and could cause pep fests later this year to be cancelled.

The pep fest went on without disruption Friday afternoon.

Park student athletes, musicians, dance team members and area youth athletic groups kicked off Friday evening's homecoming activities with a parade from Kingston Park to the high school, as friends, family members and local residents cheered along the parade route.

Park football lost to White Bear Lake 48-7 Friday night at Wolfpack Stadium.
