Ending The Year With Pig Kissing

PJHS Parents and Students,

GRIZZLY GROWLS

We appreciate your patience with the late start today! Also our phone system is really having a hard time, if your student needs to be excused, please call and leave a message or try again later.

It is really hard to get back into the swing of school but we only have 8 days before the term is over! Please help your student(s) to get on top of their grades before it is all said and done. This term ends quickly!

We hope all of our students and parents had a nice break! It is nice to relax and enjoy time with family and friends. As you can see from the photo with this week's newsletter, we ended the year with a little pig kissing. Many faculty and students participated while Mr. Swenson served as our pig handler!

We look forward to this new year and hope you are also. It is always good to reflect on what has worked well this past year and continue to work on areas that could use improvement. We encourage all to strive to be a little better each day!

December Mayor's Award

Seth Carter at Payson City Council meeting
Award recipients from MNJHS, PHS, and PJHS with the mayor and city council.

Congratulations to 7th grader Seth Carter who earned the December Mayor's Award and was recognized at the Payson City Council meeting last week. A few of the teachers who nominated him had this to say:

Seth is very helpful in class, always asking me if he can help me with anything.  I really appreciate him taking the initiative in offering help. - Mrs. Bolz

Seth has shown outstanding citizenship. He noticed an ESL student struggling in my class and stepped in to help of his own accord. If he couldn't help the student using simple words and gestures, he would get help if they needed more support. I was very impressed, there have not been that many students in my 18 year teaching career that have shown that kind of compassion and initiative. – Mrs. Hall

Seth has a lot of energy in class, which rubs off on those around him in a positive way. – Ms. LeBaron

PJHS is proud of the things Seth and many of our students do each day to make our school and community a great place to be!
