New bell schedule announced

Attributions: 

A new bell schedule will begin January 16 at Payson High School. The new schedule will allow students to receive additional help from teachers throughout the week by replacing Make-Up Thursday time with intervention time each day in a different class.  This rotation will allow students extra time once a week in each of their classes.  The change hopes that students will be able to make-up missing assignments and allow teachers time to reteach concepts as needed.   View the new schedule in the photo above.

Guide to Parking at PHS

Finding a Parking Spot at Payson High School is like trying to find water in the desert. At least that is what students think. PHS actually has a lot of parking around the school, but students don’t want to take the time to look around. Both students and teachers are frustrated. They can park in the actual student parking lot, but a lot of the time it is filled to the brim with cars. Other places the students can park are behind the Auto Shop or even in the Seminary parking lot.

Mrs. Searle hosted her second annual Red Ribbon Week wristband competition.This competition included her B1 class to see who could keep their Red Ribbon Week wristband on the longest. Last year the competition was a two-way tie only because the class was ending. This year, there is an official winner, Brian Espinoza. Brain said, “Sometimes i just wanted to take it off and others wanted to rip it off.” His prize was the satisfaction of winning and some wool socks.

Do you play games a lot? Do you love playing them? If you said yes to any of these questions then you are a gamer! Some people think gaming is bad, and they are right when it comes to some things, but that’s only if you mistreat gaming. “Wait, what do you mean by mistreat?”  Well I mean you play them when you shouldn’t be playing them instead of working on your job or schoolwork. But you can still play them when you are all done. Now I know you are going to say. “But everyone knows that!” But the things is: no one does, so get it under control.
