Veterans Day Fine Arts Concert

Submitted by tammy.halcrow on Wed, 12/16/2020 - 11:08


Students of the Payson Junior High Fine Arts Department have extended their tribute to Veterans well beyond the single day celebrated in November. Due to the pandemic, in-person concerts were not allowed and sickness delayed recording the digital version. Eager to express their appreciation, students gladly “suited up” a full month after Veterans Day and prepared segments of music and narration that have been loaded online for your viewing pleasure. Please enjoy their performances by following the links below.

PJHS Students Watch NASA Rover Landing

Last week, the NASA rover Perseverance landed on the surface of Mars just minutes after school let out. NASA did a live feed of this landing. Some students came into Mr. Wright's room after school to watch the landing and see the first few pictures of Mars sent to Earth from this Rover.  The Perseverance has as its main mission to search for life on Mars and has landed inside of an ancient lake bed on the surface of the planet. It was an exciting day for many of our avid science students here at PJHS!

Come learn about bagpipes! Ms. Diana and Ms. Leanne teach this Bagpipe Club. You will learn about Scottish culture, basic fingerings, note reading, and bagpipe music on a practice chanter. This is the first step to learning how to play the bagpipes! We will have sanitized bagpipe practice chanters that can be rented from the school or you may purchase your own with our group discount order. We will meet every Thursday after school in the band room.
