PJHS Parents and Students,

GRIZZLY GROWLS

Attendance Tip

Reach out for help if you are experiencing tough times (e.g. transportation, unstable housing, loss of a job, health problems) that make it difficult to get your child to school. Other parents, your child’s teacher, principal, social worker, school nurse, afterschool providers or community agencies can help you problem solve or connect you to a needed resource.

Captain’s Academy

The following students were selected by their coaches to represent their teams at a District Captain’s Academy. Ryan Ellsworth represented student council, Kasen Johnson represented boys’ cross country, Dana Chappa and Jocelyn Tucker represented girls’ cross country, and Cameron Stone represented golf.

At Captain’s Academy these students learned great lessons about sportsmanship, respect and competition. Dr. John Webb, who was an outstanding wrestler in high school and college, who has coached at all levels of wrestling and has been a real advocate for the sport, talked about how sports can truly become a lifelong love. He gave the students great insight into competition and love of sport and life!

Scott Mitchell, who led Springville High to a state football title, was an outstanding quarterback at the University of Utah and went on to play professional football for many years, gave a great motivational talk about life experiences and how they relate to sports.

Other speakers encouraged the students to be true leaders on the field and in the classroom.

4-H News

4H After School Clubs have officially started! We have lots of fun clubs you can join. We also have two homework help clubs which are geared towards helping students with their math homework or if they just need to stay at school to use a computer. One before school and one after school. This year the fee for clubs is $15 for the year. This will help to cover supplies for the clubs plus students will get a t-shirt! A registration form for the 2016-2017 school year also needs to be filled out and returned to Miss Ogden in room C-66. Students can pick up forms from Miss Ogden or from the front office. Here is a list of the clubs for fall:

Monday (2:00-3:30)- Harry Potter Cooking Club

Tuesday (2:45-4:30)- Maker Club & Foods Club

Wednesday (2:45-4:30)- Robotics

BOX-TOPS~YES we collect them:

·  For every 10 Box Tops students bring into their 3rd Period class, they get a "5 Extra-Credit Points" coupon to use in any of their classes (with teacher’s acceptance). If students happen to bring in 50 Box Tops, then they will also receive a Free Homework Pass.

·  Extra Credit coupons will not be replaced if lost or stolen—so students must keep it safe and redeem as soon as they know which class they would like to use the extra credit in. Box-top coupons do not expire at the end of the term.

NOTE: Teachers are not required to accept coupons for extra credit —so please check with teacher before presenting it.  Also, students may combine more than one coupon for a class.
