Welcome to Payson Jr. High School
We have so greatly enjoyed having Graciela Bartholomew as our Spanish teacher over the past three years. She is switching schools next year and we will definitely miss her. Click the story and enjoy some videos of her class!
Our 9th grade peer leadership team has been working with students at Parkview Elementary with literacy this year. Last week we finished off our time there by watching them participate at their track meet and cheer them on. There were some close races and it was great to encourage students we knew.
Mr. Gowans' science students used their engineering skills as they competed to build the tallest marshmallow suspension tower. Using only 20 spaghetti noodles, some towers were close to 3 feet high and suspended one large marshmallow. Click the story to see all the pics.
