GRIZZLY GROWLS

What a busy time of the year! There is so much to enjoy, hopefully you can take time to take in a choir concert, basketball game or wrestling match and support our great students who have worked so hard! Also, any money contributed in our Money Wars goes to local families. Please continue to encourage your students to stay up on their classes. We are down to 7 days before Christmas and 8 days after before the new semester begins!

December Mayor's Award

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!

Parent Teacher Conferences

It has been suggested by the School community council that teachers stay in their own classrooms for our Parent Teacher Conference on Dec. 7th. We will still have the mid term report cards at the front door but all teachers will be in their classrooms. We will have maps available but it would be great to have your students come to show parents where classes are.

Counseling

The Counseling Center is in the process of meeting with all 8th grade students and their parents to discuss College and Career Readiness.  We are sending out post cards to schedule appointments during the school day.  

If you would like to meet with the counselors on the evening of Parent-Teacher Conference, please call Mrs. Vellinga @ (801) 465-6021 to schedule.

Jr. High Wrestling

If you have any wrestling experience and would like to be part of our team we still need two weights filled at 95 lbs and 150 lbs. It isn't too late to join the team. Our next match will be against Salem here on December 7th.

First Annual Hunger Games Food Drive

Attributions: 

PJHS is right in the middle of our first annual Hunger Games food drive! The drive goes until November 18th. Our goal is to reach 1,000 cans of food to be delivered to local food banks to help those in need this holiday season. To date we have collected 150 items. We figure if each student brings one food item, we will easily reach our goal! Many students have brought multiple items to help our Games and we are truly thankful for their generosity!

We also have an advisory class competition where the class who brings in the most items by November 18th will receive a doughnut party AND participate in a game of kickball during Den Time. 

To each advisory class, "MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR!"
