 PJHS: Box Tops for Education

· For every 10 Box Tops you bring into your Den Time (3rd period) class you get a 5-point Extra Credit Coupon to use in any of your classes (with teacher’s acceptance). If you happen to bring in more than 50 Box Tops, then you will also receive a Free Homework Pass (on top of the 5 extra credit coupons).

· Extra Credit coupons will not be replaced if  lost or stolen—so keep it safe and redeem as soon as you know which class you would like to use the extra credit in.

· The Extra Credit coupon will not expire until the end of the school year.

· All Box Tops will be collected on the last Monday of the term, and Box Tops will not be carried over from term to term—so save up 10 Box Tops before you turn them in.

 NOTE: Teachers are not required to accept coupons for extra credit —so please check with teacher before presenting it.  Also, you may combine more than one coupon for a class.

PJHS Parents and Students,A great big thank-you goes out to the cast of Peter Pan Jr. We also need to thank Mr. Aintablian for a great last play at PJHS and wish him luck at Payson High School. It takes a lot of students and parent support to pull off a play of this caliber! It is great to have all the support that we have here at PJHS.We hope each student will get to enjoy the spring break with family or friends.

PJHS Parents and Students,

It seems strange how the weather can change so fast! It’s a distant memory of the snow, sliding on the road and the late start day. Students’ grades aren’t as easy to change. Please work with your students and help them stay caught up this term. We are almost to midterm! We will also have parent - conferences on Wednesday, February 15th! Please plan on attending with your student!

PJHS Parents and Students,

We have seen an increase in tardies, some of this has been due to the weather and the snowy roads. Please make every effort to have students here on time. If they are late, please remember to send a note or call to excuse! You can call anytime and leave a message or respond to the email you receive.

 Once students are here we still have too many tardies! Please encourage them to be to class on time!
