PJHS will sponsor a Spring Hike on May 23, 2016 this year. It is a 7-8 mile hike starting at the bottom of Payson Canyon and going over to Elk Ridge. There are prerequisites for this hike so please plan to attend the information meeting in the Activity Room during Den Time on May 16, 2016. 

PJHS holds a spring and fall hike each year for interested students.

PJHS Parents,

We appreciate the input from parents about our Lagoon trip! The vote was to continue the trip. We have finally been able to secure buses for our Lagoon trip! We will be going on May 19th. We will have final details out later. Plan a cost between $50-$55 for the bus and Lagoon pass for the day. Just a reminder that all detentions will need to be made up to be eligible to go.


Hershey Track Meets

Parents if we could get your help with the Hershey track meets! We cannot have you call and excuse your students over the phone to go up and watch a sibling participate. According to District policy, a parent has to come into the office and check a student out.

PTA News

First, we will be having our last Cafe Zupas night in Spanish Fork Tuesday, April 26th 5-9pm. Proceeds go to run the PTA at Payson Jr. High.

Remember: this is a DINE-IN ONLY event.  All advertising must be done prior to the event, and no advertising to current customers should be done once on the property. Participants do not need a voucher; telling the cashier they are supporting the school will suffice.

There's also an attachment for the event. We have some fun Cafe Zupas Swag we will be giving out as well.

Second, we will be having our Teacher Appreciation Week April 25th-29th. We would love to see our students get involved in this fun week. Please encourage your students to write a note, bring in a treat or just stop by to say "thank you" to any of their teachers that have made a positive impact on them this year. Here's the sign up, so we can make sure all of our teachers are thought of during that week.
