At the end of November, Payson High had the annual Penny Wars fundraiser also known as Sub for Santa. We were able to meet our goal of $8,000 ! All of the money donated is helping bring Christmas to families in our school, and unite our community this holiday season. Thank you for donating, and have a wonderful holiday season!

Congrats to our new Heart of a Lion, Mr. Shaun Black!

Each term students and parents nominate teachers that they feel are exceptional. Some of Mr. Black's students have said "He always goes and tries to help everybody everyday", "He's hilarious, cool, and very kind".  

Thank you for being awesome Mr. Black!
