Did you know that there are over 1,400 students and staff members from Payson High School who have served in the armed forces? (You can see there names listed on plaques in our Veterans Display near the front office and online in the PHS Hall of Fame.) We are very proud of our connection with the Veterans community.
Last month our students here at PHS had the opportunity to go visit some historical sights in Boston, Massachusetts.
They were able to tour Downtown Boston, South Church, Old City Hall, Lexington and Concord and the Harvard Campus. They also went to many different museums like the USS Constitution Museum, Salem Witch Trial Museum, Bunker Hill Memorial, John Adams birthplace and mansion, Paul Revere's capture site and JFK’s library. They even were able to attend a Boston Celtics game! What a fun trip! Thanks to Mr. Wright and all the chaperones who made this trip possible.
Over 40 million people experience anxiety every year. It is essential for parents to learn effective ways to help anxiety, especially when raising students with special needs.

Register for your spot today at this link.
This Friday, Oct 21, Payson Lions Football will be playing in the first game of the state playoff tournament against Olympus High School at PHS at 6:00 PM. Yes, this is a rematch of last year's state game. Buy your eTickets to the game by clicking here.
Because it is a state playoff game, our normal livestream system will be replaced by KSL. The live broadcast of the game will be available on KSLsports.com and on the KSL TV App.
Last month, our school was in the final three for Western Heating and Air's "Coolest School" competition. It was a tight race between Payson High and Springville High, but luckily our Lions never gave up and we slowly but surely made our way back into the top spot for coolest school! With that came a check for $1,000 and 300 "cool school" shirts.
