Veterans Day Fine Arts Concert

PJHS VETERANS DAY TRIBUTE EXTENDED

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.

Parent Teacher Conference Sign ups

December 3rd, 2020

3 pm-7:30 pm

Due to Covid we will be using a different format for Parent Teacher Conferences.  Teachers will be in their classrooms and have schedules you can sign up for to meet with them.  We understand this can be hard to schedule with Junior High students because of their 7 different teachers.

 We love seeing and meeting our parents. This year we will have to limit the number of people in the building to ensure physical distancing.  Please schedule a time with the teachers you feel you need to meet with, if your student is doing well in the class and your contact with the teacher can be done through email, please use that method.  If you feel you need longer than 5 minutes with a teacher you are welcome to sign up for two consecutive slots.  Please limit your time to those two slots, if needed. Otherwise, please sign up for one 5 minute time slot. 

 

Thank you for being flexible and helping us meet Covid guidelines and still be able to have Parent Teacher Conferences.

PJHS Money Wars

This year the student council and counseling department are teaming up for a sub for santa fundraiser. This week, the 2nd period class that raises the most money by the end of Monday, November 23rd will get a prize! The more money we raise, the more ridiculous dares our teachers will participate in.  So far, we've seen some of our staff here at PJHS get pies in the face and kiss pigs! We love the idea of our staff and students at PJHS taking part and pride in any efforts to support families this coming holiday season.

Veterans Day Fine Arts Concert

Submitted by tammy.halcrow on Wed, 11/11/2020 - 15:54

Every year, for over a decade, the Fine Arts department has put on a tribute to our veterans, but this year we have not been able to perform a live assembly.  Instead of a Veteran's Day assembly each class in the Fine Arts created their own tribute to those who have served in our military.  Please see the attached video link for your enjoyment. Thank you to all who have served our country - we honor you this Veterans Day!
