Payson Junior was surprised with a fun delivery from our local Payson Walmart! They brought in boxes and boxes of supplies for our teachers and students to use. One of our students even said to me, "It feels like Christmas!" What a happy day at Payson Junior High. We feel truly grateful for the support!
Payson Junior High benefits greatly from the School Land Trust program. This past year we were able to hold numerous faculty inservice trainings and planning sessions. We purchased classroom equipment such as computers, white boards, video screens and sound systems. We also purchased teaching and reading materials to help our teachers and their focus on student learning.
Today at Payson Jr. High, we held an assembly celebrating the memory of those whose lives were lost in the events that occurred on September 11, 2001. We celebrated the courage, bravery, and sacrifice of those who put themselves in danger in order to protect and rescue others. We were joined by members of the Utah National Guard, members of Payson's police and fire departments, as well as other members of the community.
We hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. We now are on the countdown to fall break. There are just a few reminders for our parents and students to help this year continue to run smooth.
