Mrs. Gillie and a group of her 9th Grade English students went to see "Peter and the Star-catchers" on March 2, 2017 at Hale Center Theater in Orem. The play was a story about how Peter Pan came to be--how he started out as an orphan, met Molly (the star-catcher and Wendy's mother), met and became enemies with Captain Hook, learned to fly,  and decided that he never wanted to grow up. The playhouse was filled with constant laughter and a great time was had by all.

Mr. Swenson and FFA Members In Official Dress

Payson Junior High has the coolest principal around! Mr. Swenson brought the Agriculture Science class donuts in his very own FFA Official Dress that he wore in high school.  At the end of a busy week celebrating FFA the agriculture science class loved seeing Mr. Swenson in his official dress. Our administration is very supportive of our FFA program and we are so thankful for that!

LIA Visits Veteran Home

STORY BY DANIELA LOPEZ

On March 3rd, Latinos in Action visited Central Utah Veteran’s Home in Payson, Utah. They handed out muffins to all the kind veterans that have served our country. Each Friday the students visit our local veterans.

They talk with them, do activities with them, some of them even tell stories about wars in which they’ve served or they play piano for the students. It has been a joyous and fun experience.

"I feel like it has helped us mature and appreciate our families more because some of these veterans don’t get visitors at all. We hope we have made them smile and have a fun time around us." -Daniela Lopez

STORY BY DANIELA LOPEZ

Payson Junior High School’s Latinos In Action, is enjoying tutoring at Park View Elementary. The students have been excellent role models for all of the little students. They have been putting a lot of effort and hard work into helping each student succeed in their academic areas.

It hasn’t been an easy task but they’ve managed to do it. It has been by far one of the best experiences of being in Latinos In Action. They’ve helped teachers cut papers, helped kids on homework, and assisted them with comprehension and reading skills. It sure has been such a joy working with these kids! We’re hoping to see great outcomes!

STORY BY LANDON SERYNEK

In Mr. Hatfield’s 8th grade classes, students constructed buildings out of various materials to support a metal washer.  Students were mimicking construction of a building to survive an earthquake.  This activity’s purpose, was to show students that they are scientists and engineers in their everyday life.  

Students would build their structure in thirty minutes then, it would be put to the test on the earthquake simulator.  From what I saw, the students had a great time with this project and would love to try this again.  One student said “I wish we did this everyday for science.” This was a great experiment for the students and they learned that they are scientist and engineers.

Advanced Orchestra Excels At District Assessment

Congratulations to our Advanced Orchestra who just received a straight superior rating at their District Assessment Concert for a judge.
(That is the equivalent of getting a straight A on a final exam.)

The students played very accurately, but more importantly - expressively! The judge said he had nothing to say, and then worked with the kids on some high school level bow techniques to improve their ability to keep their tone on the slower parts.

Great Job Advanced Orchestra, we are all so proud of you.
Mrs. Petrucka

PJHS Parents and Students,

We would like to encourage all our parent and students to attend Parent Teacher conference tonight! It is a great time to sit down with teachers and get the real answers to questions like, “do you have homework?” Or “Why is your grade a ___?” Or my favorite, “I’ve turned everything in, the teacher is just slow grading it!”. But seriously, please attend and see the teachers you feel you need to. Thanks parents for all your help and support!

Also, last week we honored 271 students for 4.0 GPA and 56 students for being perfect attenders during Term 2! Congratulations and a Grizzly Growl goes out to all of the students who achieved this for last term!
