Dear Students and Parents,
Hello! I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Jesse Sorenson, I am the new principal at Payson Junior High. I grew up in Santaquin and currently live in Payson. I’m very excited to be back at Payson Junior High. I love this school. I’ve been a student, a teacher, and an assistant principal here. I’m proudly a PJHS parent too.
Yesterday, the faculty and staff gathered in the Media Center to celebrate the end of the year and acknowledge some of the wonderful people who are moving on to different phases of their lives next year. Teachers who will be leaving our school were recognized and thanked for their hard work. The PJHS faculty and staff also took some time to celebrate and thank our wonderful principal, Mr. Swenson, who will be retiring this year. Mr. Swenson surprised everybody with a beautifully-carved grizzly bear for our school to proudly display!
