Last week on Friday (1/20), Payson High School hosted its first Speech and Debate Tournament. The team worked incredibly hard and because of this they took home the 1st place title! They had multiple students place in their individual categories and the competition was an overall success. Congratulations to Payson High’s Speech and Debate Team!
Ashton Andrew - 2nd Place
Hadlie Baxter - 4th Place
Payson High is full of great Students! Every month different teachers are asked to nominate a student that is extra excellent and the top students earn student of the month. Congrats to the December winners: Caleb Young, Abigail Cobia, Jackuline Barajas, Rylee Baxter, Jessica Alvarado, and Olivia Vincent.
We hope you had a wonderful holiday break. Classes start up again on Wednesday January 4th with the first day of 2nd Semester. It will be a B day, and we will have a normal bell schedule. Be sure to double-check your class schedules.
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!
