PJHS Parents,

Last Tuesday night our school presented to the Nebo District School Board. It was a full house at the meeting and our school did a great job! Mr. Swenson spoke of the great things going on at our school. He emphasized the biking program that was featured on the NBC “Today” show earlier in the year. That was followed by Mrs. Bragg describing the live TEDx event the school participated in last year. Cole Mattson gave his TED talk about how sports and school go together! He did a great job. Then Case Kunz and Mindy Riding presented their poems for the poetry slam. All three students represented our school extremely well. The presentation was a success and many of those in attendance commented on the great things happening at PJHS.
