Don't Judge a Book by its Cover

Mrs. Brockbank’s class was assigned to make a project that represented a book that they liked. Some of the ideas for projects consisted of comic strips, stories, a coat of arms, and more. These projects were meant to represent either the main characters in a book, or something like a big event that happened in a book, or just to give a short summary to get people hooked on a good book. The projects were a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed being creative and working on a fun project.

The Score's Concert at Payson High School

World renowned band, The Score, visited Payson High School on April 10th: giving people of Payson High School a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The band that wrote this school year’s anthem “Unstoppable” was brought to Payson, Utah for a loudly applauded assembly in which they preformed other of their hit songs like “Revolution” and “Legend” followed by a Q&A led by José Valle and Kaeden Flippen.

  The Score’s trip to Payson’s auditorium started months ago, when Kaeden Flippen nominated José Valle for the band’s #LocalLegend where he got shoutouts on social media, band merch and concert tickets. Months before that, @TheScoreMusic said on Twitter, “So Cool. Shout out to @Payson Lions for making UNSTOPPABLE their high School theme this year @AlfredValle27 @Flippenator.” Valle’s win–which included band merch and VIP concert tickets–later led to Valle, Flippen and the band having deeper communication. Within a couple weeks, Valle said, “They [The Score] personally reached out to us, they communicated with us and were really awesome.”

  After students witnessed the unique concert, student council members, Valle and Flippen, and the band sat down for a Q&A in which the questions were brought in from what students on social media wanted to know. After explaining how the New York founded band came to be, Edan Dover said to aspiring musicians, “Don’t be afraid to have a full-time gig, but also pursue your dream on the side,” advice very much needed for those who desire a career in music in their lives.

The experience wasn’t only special for the ones who watched the performance, the members of the band “Joined the likes of Kevin Bacon,” as José Valle put it.  The Score’s visit to the high school was definitely something they had in their mind while they performed in Salt Lake City later that night.

The Color of our Blood

Payson High School News - Tue, 04/17/2018 - 10:55am

Green: the color of vigor and strength. Memories of Payson High School engulf our minds when we see this glorious shade of life. When you walk into Payson High, you are bombarded by the onslaught of Verde plastered around the halls. This color may strike fear into their hearts of other schools, yet for us, it fills us with determination and faith. We have to ask ourselves why? Why does it have this affect on us when we go to school sports games? Why do we love this color?


The reason is that green isn’t just a color to us, it’s a belief. A lifestyle. To us, we embrace this color as we become a PHS lion. When we wear our bold colors, we show the world that we will wear our beliefs bravely and courageously, even when we have different schools, people, and facts telling us that isn’t worth ourthe time and energy. They might tear us down by asking, “Why waste time on something that’s not worthwhile?” WRONG! They may tell us that we aren’t on their level, or that we can’t accomplish the things they have. But how do we respond to their cries? We stand as a pride, as a family, and we band together with the shade that is pulsing through our veins: green.


When you wear the green of PHS, you show that you will always honor your values and beliefs as a Payson Llion even after you leave this school and disband after school hours. You will always be a lion, not just because of how you behave, but because it’s the way PHS inspired you to be.


Green: the attitude of a student, the strength of a lion, and the faith we have in our school and in each other. Green is and will always be the color of our blood.

Standing Together

Payson High School News - Tue, 04/17/2018 - 10:53am

In the wake of the recent Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, it’s natural that students everywhere are feeling apprehensive about safety in their schools. Payson High is one of those school’s whose student body is facing the particular fears and aftermath of such a massive tragedy. This was especially apparent on Sunday, March 4, when an alleged shooting threat directed towards PHS was spread around social media.

The Payson Police Department later discredited this, saying that the threat was simply a matter of false rumor. Even after finding out it was a hoax, Junior Dominique Colipi said, “Things like this scare me because they are unpredictable. I should have known better that it was a fake, but honestly, who could be 100% sure?” The implications of this incident show just how much High Schools need to come together.

After events in Florida, people nationwide have gotten caught up in the politics such as making schools safer and stricter gun laws. While these topics should be addressed and discussed, students, parents, and teachers forget to encourage one major thing: standing together. Senior Kaylea Clements says, “My attitude had changed towards the students here because I’m trying to recognize everyone more, to let them know they are needed and important to someone. Making everyone feel like a someone is VERY important to me.”

Offer support to one another in challenging times, like Florida citizens, our community should look to each other for comfort. Everyone attending Payson High needs to be a friend. If you see someone sitting alone during lunch, don’t be afraid go and talk to them. If you see another student getting bullied, don’t be afraid to defend them. Perhaps the best way to make our school a safer place is by being a friend to everyone.
