Tis the season of giving, receiving and loving. Almost everyone can agree, unless you’re a real scrooge, that this time of year is filled with a lot more joy and love than the other 11 months of the year. Everyone is in the spirit of giving and looking for ways to show you care about someone. It’s definitely a special time. Why do you think kids love Christmas the most out of all the holidays? It may start because they get presents, but there is more to it there is a different feel in the air this time of year.
Payson High got in on the Holiday spirit by displaying this gorgeous tree! This time of year, it is nice to see joy and peace through symbols such as a tree, a wreath, candy canes, etc. On top of the busy schedules that our secretaries have, they were able to spend time making the tree look presentable, classy, and glamorous. Vickie Davis, Minon Tallon and Diana Steele spent time working on this masterpiece, and for that, we should recognize their hard work. Payson High has never looked better.
