Col. Gail Halvorsen, known as the "Candy Bomber" of the Berlin Airlift, was our guest speaker for Veterans Day in November 2019. Col. Halvorson recently send the following thank you letter to the school and we wanted to share it with all of you:
Dear Jeb, teachers, administrators and students of Payson High School,
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.
Have you heard the news? Our very own Latinos in Action group have organized a masquerade dance for Saturday, January 18th, 2020 from 7:00-10:00 pm in the cafeteria. This dance will be semi-formal and masks are encouraged to tie in with the dance’s theme. Tickets are $20 if you buy beforehand and $25 at the door. Tickets are being sold at the finance office and will also be sold during lunch on January 13th through 17th. It is sure to be a great night full of dancing, laughing, singing, and great memories.
Congratulations to our LIONS OF THE WEEK! Madalyn Taylor, a member of our girl's basketball team, is just coming back from a recent ACL surgery and leads our team in 3 point shooting right now. Cole Jensen, a Payson High State Champ wrestler, recently beat a 2-time state champion from Idaho and went undefeated at the Wasatch duals. Hayden Roundy's hard work on the basketball team has helped them to achieve a 7-3 pre-season record. Emilee Voran, a member of our drill team, was recognized for being a kind teammate, a great leader, and always asking questions in practice so she can improve.
