This week in Matt Cope's Biology class, students participated in a Concept Attainment activity. Concept Attainment is an inquiry learning strategy where students investigate the attributes of a group or category by comparing and contrasting samples.
Cope's lesson activity asked students to identify the traits and properties of macromolecules. This strategy helps students make connections between what they already know and what they will be learning AND how to sort relevant information.

Ms. Kron started teaching this year & is excited to be at Payson High and share her love for teaching Spanish/English to the students. Ms. Kron’s (soon to be Mrs. Noll’s) aspirations led her to our school, and now we have a new amazing Spanish/ English teacher and she got her dream job. When asked what she liked about Payson, she responded, “I love everything about Payson High School so far! I have felt welcomed (by our awesome principal & assistant principals!) since my first job interview, and every day just gets better and better. Faculty and students alike - everyone is so kind and willing to lend a helping hand!” Hopefully students and faculty keep impressing Ms. Kron throughout the year and years to come.
The Spartans girls team opened the season against tennis powerhouse Spanish Fork on Sept 14. Megan Turner and Ruby Brockbank turned in a nice win at varsity second doubles, and Emilee Nicholls won a nail biter tie break match at JV 1st JV singles.
Otherwise, Spanish Fork controlled the matches. Still, it was a good start for the lady Spartans except for an injury to Ashlyn Westwood, who rolled her ankle during a doubles match. She will be out of action for a couple of weeks.

I was born in Payson, but I moved to Albuquerque New Mexico and then to Evanston, Wyoming. I moved back to Payson in time for Junior High and then moved to Elk Ridge during my high school years. I graduated from Payson High School and then went on to BYU where I got a degree in accounting. I worked in the accounting department of a grocery chain store until I had my first child. After having 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls, I began subbing when they all entered school. I started tutoring other kids at the same time. I tutored reading and some science, but mostly I tutored math from kindergarten up to college algebra and some basic calculus. While I was subbing I also worked at SHHS giving their AP tests, SAT tests, and ACT tests. I really enjoyed helping kids get their GED so they could graduate or pass other tests like the ASVAB. I currently live in Genola with my husband and I love it there. My oldest son is married with a little girl and one on the way. My oldest daughter teaches English at Mountain View High School. My second daughter is doing elementary education at UVU and my youngest son just graduated and is on a mission in Jamaica.
