On October 16, 2013 a group of PJHS students took a field trip for The Shakespeare Festival.  Mr. Aintablian, the school’s drama teacher, chaperoned the students to Cedar City.  He had remembered many great things, and enjoyed going with the students.  They got to stay over night, meet people who had made a name for themselves in the drama department, and participate in competitive activities.

“This is our way of celebrating those who have sacrificed to protect our country, “ was the first announcement made after welcoming the guests of Payson Junior High School’s Veteran’s Day concert. The entire auditorium was full of proud family members and  fellow students and staff. Soon the Payson High School was filled with the sounds of the band, orchestra, jazz band, and choir playing patriotic songs to honor the veterans.
