Weekly Kindness Challenge: Compliment Someone

Beginning this week, our school Newspaper staff would like to issue a "Weekly Kindness Challenge" to the students at Payson High School. This week their challenge is to compliment someone. 

We all love to receive compliments or hear words of encouragement, but how often are we offering those kind words? That's the challenge! Whether you compliment someone on their smile, their shoes, or their willingness to help a neighbor in math class, a compliment can go a long way and make someone's day. 

Stay tuned for next week's challenge.

We are very proud of our students, Daxon Geldmacher and Melissa Ward, who were both recently published in Utah Valley University magazines.

Daxon Geldmacher was one of around 4 high school students to get their short story published in Utah Valley University’s “Warp & Weave” magazine. Daxon heard about this chance to be published by his teacher, Mrs. Parker.
