January 31 Grizzly Update

PJHS Parents and Students,

We have seen an increase in tardies, some of this has been due to the weather and the snowy roads. Please make every effort to have students here on time. If they are late, please remember to send a note or call to excuse! You can call anytime and leave a message or respond to the email you receive.

 Once students are here we still have too many tardies! Please encourage them to be to class on time!

 Students will be held accountable for detention on tardies. These add up quickly! Remember detention can be made up every Monday and Wednesday after school for an hour! Also, Mrs. Wagner has detention in her room Tuesdays-Friday morning beginning at 7:20.

January Mayor's Award Recipient Named

Attributions: 
Photos by Stewart Family, Kim Lefler

January has been a snowy and blustery month at PJHS and in the midst of it all our very own 8th grader, Jack Stewart, shone brightly! Jack earned the Payson City Mayor's Award at the January city council meeting. Jack's teachers had high praise for his efforts at school.

Mrs. Bridenbaugh stated, "Jack Stewart has been an amazing help and friend to my new student.  He has come to get him off the bus.  Helped him to go back to class when the student has melted down.  He deserves to be recognized for going up and beyond the expected. Jack has a heart that is made of gold.  He is always willing to befriend any of the students in my classroom.  He is always willing to help or give comfort when they are having a bad day.  I am so greatful to have a peer tutor like Jack."

Mr. Aintablian professed, "Often you will see Jack pick up an extra responsibility to help, and when he does, he commits. Though it seems like a simple compliment, the sincerity with which he stays loyal to serving those he chooses, is quite admirable, especially when you consider the multitudinous distractions and incentives are provided to a young teen." 

And finally, Ms. Petersen added, "Jack goes out of his way to make sure everyone feels like they have a friend. In math he sits next to a student who came to our school speaking no English. The language barrier didn't stop Jack from trying to be her friend though! He would say hi, talk to her, etc. even though she understood very little of what he was saying. He'd also ask her how to say things in Spanish, so he was allowing her to share part of her language with him."

We are glad to have Jack and many others who care about our school and our community. They make the world a better place everyday!

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!
