Upcoming Cinco de mayo Event in Payson

Submitted by chris.killpack on

In our Spanish classes at PJHS we learn about Cinco de mayo which of course is NOT Mexico's independence day but another opportunity to celebrate Mexico's beginnings of freedom.  Mexico celebrates a memorable battle against the French that took place in the town of Puebla.  Puebla is such a beautiful place - it is highly recommended to visit if you get the opportunity. 

Payson City is celebrating Cinco de mayo next week at the Peteetneet Amphitheater at 10 S. 600 E. Payson UT.  Come enjoy great music and authentic foods!

This survey includes questions about your student's learning, school safety, and interpersonal relationships, as well as your attitudes about the institutional environment and your personal involvement in school. Your responses will be very helpful in improving student relationships, learning conditions, and the overall school environment.
