Every Day Mathematician

Submitted by chris.killpack on Wed, 02/23/2022 - 12:01

We have a new Every Day Mathematician bulletin board hanging in our North Hall here at PJHS. Thanks to Ms. Cope for updating this for us. Our highlight this round is our very own Mr. Evans! He teaches in the Special Education Department here at PJHS and is a mountain biking expert. Check out the bulletin board next time you're around to see how he uses mathematics in all sorts of ways with mountain biking.

Students of the Month

Submitted by chris.killpack on Fri, 02/11/2022 - 10:55

9th grade: 
Leah Sorenson----Where do I start with Leah? Leah is one of the nicest girls I know! I have never seen her be rude or disrespectful to anyone. She is always willing to let other students join in and makes them feel wanted and comfortable. She is always bubbly and happy, very rarely do you see her without a smile on her face. I love the confidence that she has to always be herself! Great job Leah, and keep on being YOU!  -Mrs. Paxton

Please click on this slide show video to enjoy pictures of some of our activities in our Spanish class.  During the holidays we were able to learn about Christmas traditions, we cut the Rosca de Reyes.  We also were able to send some books to Mexico that the students created.  They are so talented!  There are also some pictures of our Tacos and Salsas speaking activities we do often.  Students now are able to speak Spanish for 1 minute! They are sounding great!
