Student Council elections will take place tomorrow, Friday, April 1st! This is no April Fool's joke - be prepared to vote for your favorite candidate to represent you next school year. 

Voting will take place during 3rd period. Teachers will escort their students to the voting computer lab to cast your votes. Think about who would be the best representative for our school next year and cast your ballot!

Mr. Blake Mortensen
Our Wonderful Moms Helping With School Play Props

PJHS Parents,

The time is flying by! We are almost to the end of the 3rd term. We have just under 3 weeks left so encourage students to continue to work hard and complete missing work. As the weather gets warmer and the sun comes out it is a big temptation to miss a class here and there. Parents please remind your students to stay in class and not leave campus. According to district policy we are a closed campus. Students can’t leave without being checked out by a parent or guardian who is on their checkout list.


Accreditation Visit

Every 5 years a school which awards credit for high school graduation must be accreditated. This began 1 ½ years ago as some of our faculty and Mr. Swenson was part of the accreditation process for other schools. They came back and began what has been a lot of hard work and documentation about what we do as a school. We have the visiting team at our school today and tomorrow. If your students comment they have seen other adults in the halls and classes, they are gathering evidence about the great school we are. It is our hope that we get a good overall review.

Science Fair

Congratulations to McKaden Anderson for taking first place at the district science fair! McKaden Anderson, Tyler Rasmuson, Brenna Worthington, Abby Maloy, and Cozette Caron will be moving on the the BYU Science Fair. Also, great job to Caleb Morgan and Daxon Geldmacher for presenting at the district science fair.

Badminton tournament

There's a SINGLES Badminton Tournament coming up next week on March 4th after school. Again; Badminton, Friday the 4th, after school. All are welcome. Sign up with Mr. Archer.

Spring Sports

Along with the better weather we will have spring sports starting soon!

Track- begins 3/7. We encourage all students to come participate. Track practice will go from 2:45 - 4:00. The more students who come and support track the better the chances we have of doing well against the other schools.
