Congratulations to the Advance Payson Jr. High Orchestra for their performance at the Nebo School District Assessment last Thursday, March 8th. They received a straight superior, which is the highest grade possible. The guest judge was none other than Denise Willey, who got our school's whole string program going here in Payson about thirty years ago, and who we have to thank for our wonderful tradition of excellent string classes in our area. Denise was so impressed with our school's performance and had nothing but positive comments--both on our assessment form and in person.
The recipient of the Mayor Award for March is PJHS student Spencer Bennett (9th grade). Spencer was selected for this award because he works hard and participates in class. He is mature and responsibile, and makes sure to include other people. Here's what some of Spencer's teachers have to say about him:
Spencer is so positive and such a good influence on other athletes. He knows how to set goals, work hard, and then reach those goals. – Mrs. Bragg
Last week at PJHS was FFA week, where students learned more about what the Future Farmers of America organization is all about. Throughout the week, students dressed up and participated in a variety of activities. The week culminated with an exciting assembly on Friday, complete with all kinds of awesome games and events. It was a great week!
