Thank You, Parents and Students!

Thank you to all of the parents who so graciously donated candy to our generosity campaign for December. Students and teachers have had a lot of fun spreading generosity by sneakily delivering the candy to other classes.

ALSO… Payson Junior High School students and faculty raised $5,160.67 during our Sub For Santa competition week!!!  We are so humbled and impressed by the efforts of our school.  All of this money was donated to United Way Sub for Santa of Utah specifically bookmarked to go to Payson and Santaquin families.  Thank you for your generosity, PJHS!

Spirit Week and Assembly Schedule

Students have been having a fun time so far this week showing their spirit for the upcoming holiday break. For those who would like to participate the rest of the week, here is the schedule: Thursday - Ugly Christmas sweater day. Friday is Christmas cozy day. We will have a shortened class schedule on both Thursday and Friday to accommodate the Mr. Grizzly contest on Thursday and a Fine Arts assembly on Friday.
