School Realignment: How it will effect Payson High School

By: Annika Spencer

The UHSAA has changed the sports boundaries for all the schools in the state of Utah. This change affects almost every school, and every sport.

But how does this change affect Payson High School exactly? We are again facing off against Spanish Fork, Salem, and Springville, who are our three biggest rivals. According to Coach Chapman, our school is back where it belongs. We are home. The biggest reason why Payson coaches and administration are excited is because it means less travel for our sports teams, and the rivalry games are back.

Check out Payson High's Season of Giving

By: Briana Ortega

The Christmas season is a time of giving. It is a time to forget about what we want and focus on how to help those around us. The true Spirit of Christmas is found in giving what we have to those in need. Payson High knows this truth well, which is why Payson High’s Student Council and Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) have stepped up to raise money for families in need. All the money collected, every last penny, will go toward giving Christmas to families of students who attend Payson High, or families in the community.
