Our three fantastic MJHS Bands held their Fall Concert on Thursday, October 12th. The concert began with the Jazz Band students getting started with some up-beat fun music, The Cadet Band followed with a number that included some interesting percussion instruments that gave the piece a “spooky” feeling. The Symphonic Band closed the concert with a couple of Halloween numbers that caught everyone’s attention and had the audience vigorously applauding. Students performed while wearing their favorite Halloween costumes. Our MJHS students did very well and are to be congratulated on representing the band program in such an entertaining way.

SJHS Students Pay It Forward with Pumpkins

More than thirty students from Springville Junior High School volunteered at Jaker’s Pumpkin Patch on Tuesday, October 10th, harvesting gourds for a community service project. The students, who belonged to chapters of the PTSA, Student Council, and National Junior Honors Society, brought in almost two dozen wheelbarrows of produce. In gratitude for their service, Jaker’s awarded each student a pumpkin—not to keep for themselves, but to pass along to someone in need.

“This was a great way for the kids to learn to work, and also to pay it forward,” stated Tess Jones, PTSA President and organizer of the event. “They can donate their pumpkins to friends who are being bullied, struggling with financial issues, medical issues, or just in need of cheering up.”

Despite over an hour of hard labor, and the grime and battle scars to prove it, the students wore genuine smiles as they cut the gourds free, piled them into wheelbarrows, then carted them away. “It feels great when I help people lift their burdens,” said eighth-grader Ella Unguren. “I know that I’m making their life easier.”

Several of the participants’ younger siblings joined the SJHS crew. Among them were Brookside Elementary students Levi Palmer and Madoc Jones—both of whom have joined the junior high’s PTSA organization despite their younger age—indicating that the school should enjoy an even brighter future of community involvement and service.

Tree Festival scheduled for November 21

Payson High School News - Fri, 10/13/2017 - 10:35am

PHS classes, clubs and groups and the Payson City community are invited to participate in the annual Tree Festival by decorating and donating a tree to be auctioned off during a boys basketball game on November 21.

A large portion of the proceeds goes to the student council to provide “Sub for Santa” to families in our area. In the past, many groups have secured donations from the community and trees have sold at much higher prices! If any community members are interested in donating funds or a tree to decorate, you can reach Julie Gowans at julie.gowans@nebo.edu

This festival has been a great resource for providing Christmas to families in need.  Payson High Student Council and the PTSA hopes this year will be another great year at the auction.  Mark your calendars for November 21.

Quinton Hadlock – 9TH GRADE

Mt. Nebo Jr. High School

Quinton Hadlock, a 9th grade student at Mt. Nebo Jr. High, has been nominated to receive the Payson City Mayor’s Award for the month of October. Quinton is a positive example at MNJHS.  We couldn't be more proud to have Quinton receive this award from the Payson City Council.

Here's what some of Quinton's teachers had to say about him.

Quinton Hadlock is an outstanding Student.  He maintains high grades and achievement.  Even in Honors courses.  He is also an outstanding example and regarded highly by his peers.  

Quinton is an active member of the HOPE Squad in his 3rd year.  He is continually assisting other students and directing them to see the counselors when they it is needed.

Recently in a poll among the students in our school he received the most votes as a student others can talk to who cares about his fellow students.  

We have seen examples of his service and kindness to others during his few years at MT. Nebo Jr. High. Time and again he is helpful to students who need a good mentor.

Congratulations Quinton!

The Natural Resource Science class had the opportunity to assist the Division of Wildlife Resources today with their annual Gilnet survey at Jordanelle reservoir. Students aided the DWR in pulling fish from the nets. Then, students assisted in measuring, weighing, and observing stomach content of the fish. Students also assisted the DWR in writing down the data for every fish in the nets. This was a great opportunity to get these students in a hands on opportunity where students could work with professionals in a career that these students are interested in.
