Spring time and Sage time

Submitted by kate.searle on

It’s that time of the year once again, where the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the snow has melted away. Students are itching for the year to come to a close, but one small, minor problem still stands in our way. Sage testing. I decided to get some further intel on the students’ opinions here at PHS.

As many of us are aware, this is the last year, at Payson High, for many of our most beloved teachers. Among these, are some of this state’s finest educators, and some of our finest mentors. Of course, their leaving upsets us greatly, but we are more than grateful for the opportunity we had to be their students.

From One Student to Another

Submitted by kate.searle on

As I continue my fourth and final term of high school, I try and remember all the good times I had. Sadly, the truth is I have had more bad memories than good. I am a firm believer that this was caused by not wanting to participate in the various activities offered by the high school.  I had the opportunity to attend 3 different high schools including, Timpview High, Salem High, and Payson High. All three of these schools were filled with outstanding school spirit, fun/enthusiastic teachers, and of course, multiple school activities. My mistake?
