PJHS Parents and Students,


Please encourage students to bring money for our Money Wars! We really need to help provide a Christmas for local families and have not met that need yet! Every bit helps!

Just a reminder, that we don’t have school on Friday, Dec. 23rd and we will return Jan. 3rd! Have a great Christmas Break and enjoy sleeping in!

The student council and yearbook staff took some time today to visit the nursing home in Santaquin, sing Christmas Carols and bring cheer to the residents. The students had a great time and the residents enjoyed hearing and seeing our students very much!

Check out the links below for videos of some of the songs.

PJHS Parents and Students,


What a busy time of the year! There is so much to enjoy, hopefully you can take time to take in a choir concert, basketball game or wrestling match and support our great students who have worked so hard! Also, any money contributed in our Money Wars goes to local families. Please continue to encourage your students to stay up on their classes. We are down to 7 days before Christmas and 8 days after before the new semester begins!

Seth is very helpful in class, always asking me if he can help me with anything.  I really appreciate him taking the initiative in offering help. - Mrs. Bolz
