Lagoon Field Trip
Our Lagoon Field trip is only two and a half weeks away - coming up on Thursday, May 18th! The cost for tickets to the park and the round trip bus ride will be a total of $75 dollars. The cost for just the bus ride is $25. Tickets will be sold starting next Monday, May 8th and will be available through May 16th. To be eligible to purchase a ticket, students can not have more than 2 hours of detention time, all outstanding student fees need to be paid, and students can’t have any F grades for the fourth term (as of May 8th when we begin selling tickets). Eligible students will receive a notification in class this Friday, May 5th, that will allow them to start purchasing tickets. Get that detention made up and keep your grades at D or better!

If you haven’t yet paid the fee for a yearbook this year, but would like to receive a remembrance of your 22-23 experience at PJHS (and have a book for your friends to sign), you can still pay the $25 fee for a yearbook at the finance office.

Tennis Team Accolades
Congratulations to our freshman student, Tanner Staheli, who achieved 4th place in 2nd singles region play for the Payson High Varsity Tennis Team!

Reminders from the Media Center
1.  Books are no longer able to be checked out from the library.
2.  All library books must be returned to the library by May 5th, in good condition, in order to avoid any fines.
4.  Chromebook check-in will be May 16-17 during school.  Chromebooks must be returned in good condition with their charger to avoid fines.  All fines must be paid if a student wants to receive their yearbook on the early distribution date (or to stay eligible for Lagoon).

Summer Swimming
Summer Swim Registration and Tryouts are currently open. Register through Payson City Recreation. Swim Team meets every morning for June and July. This is a great opportunity to learn the skills necessary to be on the high school swim team. There will be a tryout to be on the high school swim team this year. We will not be taking swimmers without any swimming experience. Summer swim team is a great place to get that experience. They also offer lessons if you are not able to sign up for the whole summer.

School Fees are Due
All fees and fines will need to be paid by May 5th to avoid Lagoon and yearbook interruptions. Fees can be paid online at www.myschoolfees.com or at the finance 7:30-2:45 Monday through Friday. Early yearbook distribution will take place on May 24th. If students are current with their fees and have no outstanding fines, they will be allowed to pick up their yearbook early.
