PJHS Students Watch NASA Rover Landing

Submitted by lexi.jackman on Mon, 02/22/2021 - 09:12

Last week, the NASA rover Perseverance landed on the surface of Mars just minutes after school let out. NASA did a live feed of this landing. Some students came into Mr. Wright's room after school to watch the landing and see the first few pictures of Mars sent to Earth from this Rover.  The Perseverance has as its main mission to search for life on Mars and has landed inside of an ancient lake bed on the surface of the planet. It was an exciting day for many of our avid science students here at PJHS!

Students of the Payson Junior High Fine Arts Department have extended their tribute to Veterans well beyond the single day celebrated in November. Due to the pandemic, in-person concerts were not allowed and sickness delayed recording the digital version. Eager to express their appreciation, students gladly “suited up” a full month after Veterans Day and prepared segments of music and narration that have been loaded online for your viewing pleasure. Please enjoy their performances by following the links below.

Parent Teacher Conference Sign ups

December 3rd, 2020

3 pm-7:30 pm

Due to Covid we will be using a different format for Parent Teacher Conferences.  Teachers will be in their classrooms and have schedules you can sign up for to meet with them.  We understand this can be hard to schedule with Junior High students because of their 7 different teachers.
