The average American only takes 5,000 steps a day-but students were able to walk 500 miles as a school to take a stand against drugs.

On Monday, October 7th, the Payson Junior High Grizzlies showed their commitment to be drug free, bringing the end of Red Ribbon Week to a close. Over 1,000 students, faculty and staff completed a ½ mile walk, bringing our school total to 500 miles walked. Each homeroom class created a banner that showed their pledge to be drug free, and the PTA decided on 3 winners that were announced at the end of the assembly.

Toughest Competition of the Year

A fierce competition occurred after school as students and staff played in one of Payson Junior’s toughest, most popular events: a badminton tournament.

On September 20, 2013, 70 students competed in Payson Junior High’s first badminton tournament of the year.  Eric Archer, teacher at Payson who organized the event, explained, “There were a lot of close games and it was a 'smashing' good time.”
