Payson's tropical spirit week begins a new tradition

Payson High became a tropical island during the last week of February for this school year’s spirit week. Throughout the week students wore beach attire, and on Wednesday the 28th, people got together to watch “Lilo and Stitch.” At the end of the week Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores went against each other in an assembly by competing against each other in different games: a war of the classes.

On February 23, Mr. Sorenson and Mr. Peery took 30 students to go to Zions and Bryce Canyon National Park along with Principal Shepherd and Coach Miller. In order for the students to go, they must “learn” while they go off adventuring. Mr. Peery decided to have the students bring some of his equipment to film, take pictures, and capture the beautiful views of Bryce and Zions.
