Parent Newsletter Week Ending 11-13-15

Blake Mortensen

PJHS Parents,

Coming up in two weeks will be our first reward activity for those students who are in the Grizzly Club. Students who have qualified were given a Grizzly card in the past couple of days. Student with Grizzly cards have the opportunity to go see “The Peanuts Movie” on Nov 20th during the school day. Members can pick up a permission slip in the office and have a parent sign it and bring the permission and $2 to the finance office by November 18th. The bus will be loading at 8:05.

To qualify for the Grizzly Club students had to:


• A student is to have at least a 3.0 grade point average.

• A student may have no deficient grades (D’s, F’s, I’s) at the end of the term.


• A student must be in attendance 90% of the term (with no unexcused absences). This

equates to approximately no more than 40 period absences (5 days) allowed per term

• A student may not have more than three tardies in a term.

• A student may choose to make up tardies by serving detention.


• A student may not have any N’s or U’s on their citizenship grade in any class.

• A student may not have any suspensions for the reward term and the current term will

be a probationary period for the next term.


Congratulations goes out to Kya Heimuli- who was honored as Payson’s Mayor Outstanding Student Award! Keep up the good work Kya.
