At 6am (yes, am,) on March 27, PJHS hosted its Singles Badminton tournament. This tournament was Payson’s second of the year, and the reasoning for the insanely early start is that it allows students to participate even if their after school schedules are busy.

Payson Jr. has headed Into the Woods this week! This years new drama teacher, Mr.Aintablian, has been preparing along with his student cast for the delightful musical “Into the Woods”. A mash-up of fairytales where characters like Cinderella, Jack, two Princes, the Baker and his wife, the witch, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel head into the woods in search for something they wish for. It’s hilarious and heartwarming and an exciting play for all who come to see.

St. Patricks Day, 2014.  The world drummers were prepared sitting in the Payson Junior High Auditorium.  They were dressed in colorful clothing, and had made a half circle, prepared to begin the school’s 4-H showcase.  They played along to traditional songs, and Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror” led by the school’s talented band teacher, Mrs. Erickson.  There was even a song where the audience participated by clapping beats along.  It ended strong, and everybody clapped loudly.
