On Monday, September 24, 2012, several members of the Payson Junior High faculty went on a hike in Payson Canyon. All teachers and staff were invited to go view the natural beauty of the fall colors, and get to know their colleagues a little better!
When asked why he organized this event, Vice Principal, Jesse Sorensen explained, "Payson Canyon offers great views and excellent opportunities for fitness. As a faculty we decided we would take advantage of both and check out the autumn leaves. It was also a great opportunity to get to know each other outside of the building and the regular work day."
Jim Howell, a teacher who attended the hike added, "The hike was great. Jesse's knowledge of Payson Canyon is amazing as he described happenings like a "Indigenous Historian". The leaves were brilliantly beautiful. The fresh air and hike were exhilarating and the company was pleasant."
We are very proud of those who took advantage of this opportunity and look forward to more chances to be fit and friendly!
