Another teacher that joined the faculty members at Payson High School is History Teacher Gabe Smith.  Who arrived at PHS to bring the same fascination he had for History to his students. Mr. Smith achieved his ambition of becoming a History teacher and joined the PHS faculty. When asked why he decided to teach history, he said he had a fascination with learning about diverse cultures and wars, and that he “always had an affinity to help people out.”  He also wants all the students to know that he’s always there to help and listen if you need someone to talk to.He likes metal music and going to those kind of concerts in his free time, as well as playing Magic the Gathering, gaming, reading and sports.

Congratulations to Ammon Wallace who was chosen from more than 6,000 students to be in Broadcom Masters' top 300 students for his science fair submission. Some of you will remember last year when we posted about Ammon's project that explored the possibility of extending the shelf-life of milk using blue light. We were impressed with Ammon's creative solution  and it turns out that so were the judges.

This is a huge win for Ammon who will recieve free year-long subscriptions to science magazines and several other prizes. If chosen, the next step for Ammon would be Washington D.C. where 30 finalists will compete for top recognition and a grand prize of $25,000.

Make sure to congratulate Ammon and recognize this great achievement. Ammon is a great example for all of us of what it means to be Spartan Strong.

Linsee Park- New Teacher At Payson High School

Another new teacher who’s excited, not only to be a Lion, but to teach science to the students of Payson High is teacher, Linsee Park.

Ms. Park started teaching Chemistry and Science because she’s “always loved science and learning how things work”. She also likes that she can leave students in an “aha” moment where something clicks in your brain. She became a teacher because of the positive impact that other teachers left on her, and she hopes to do the same for her own students. When asked what she liked about PHS, she replied, “I love how kind and welcoming all the teachers and students have been to me this year. There is a great sense of community and togetherness that makes you feel like you’re part of something.”

Welcome Back Payson High

Payson High School News - Tue, 09/05/2017 - 10:56am

Friday August 25, Payson’s Student Council put on an assembly that introduced the 2017-2018 theme, got the students excited for the upcoming events and pinned each grade against each other with head-to-head competitions. From the very beginning the students were making noise, cheering, laughing and singing along to the songs being played.

During the competitions everyone fought for points, but by the end the seniors came out victorious.Their prize, bragging rights and the beloved spirit stick that the student council introduced for this year. According to Jose Valle, Student Body President, he believes that this has been one of the most spirited assembly’s that the Juniors and Seniors have ever seen. He said, “Most everyone got into it. The Juniors and Seniors were definitely into it, but I know some people were upset about the fact that the Sophomores wouldn’t stand up. That's , they just came from being top dog at the Jr high, and now they are the bottom again.” The behavior of the Sophomores was a little disappointing, but hopefully their attitude will change over time.

Valle’s idea on why they didn’t get involved is mainly because of the tech problems which forced them to pick a side to talk to, and that made it more difficult for others to get into it. In the future Valle believes that the Sophomores will get more spirited and involved.

This assembly was the most attained assembly in a very long time, and Claire Rowley accredits that to the new assembly schedule. People were skipping assemblies because they could just sleep in and then come to first period afterwards, but since they put it after first period students were already there. Also, teachers were supposed to walk their students down to the gym and the teachers without a class and blocked the doors not letting kids sluff.

 

Overall, this assembly will be considered a success. It definitely got the students excited about this school year, and now everyone is pumped for the school year.

The Young Lion

Football season is always an excitement. For students, for families that support, for the coaches and especially the players. With Timpanogos as the first home game of the year. The mighty lions have already faced a huge trial, one that could affect the whole season ahead of them. In the first half of the game, the quarterback, Matt Van Moos (a senior) tore his ACL and is out for the remainder of the season. Then following, Hank Bowers (a Junior) stepped in ready to play, but not long after he suffered a collarbone fracture and was taken out of the game and for the rest of the season.

Now finally, it was up to the 3rd string quarterback, Logan Wride (a Sophomore) to step up. And unfortunately later into the game, Logan ended up with a torn MCL, but still managed to play through the rest of the game. That was Logan’s first varsity game, he shared his feelings on being the starting quarterback as a Sophomore. He said, “I feel a lot of pressure, because I’m not use to playing against Juniors and Seniors, they’re a lot bigger than the Freshman I was going against last year. And there were only a couple people that came to the games and now there is a whole school watching.” Logan is very determined to come back from his injury, and has promised to work harder and to be the best he can be for the sake of his team.

Head Coach, Derek Campbell, has complete faith in Logan being able to do his job and be the best quarterback that he can be. Coach Campbell went on to say, “As a coaching staff we expect Logan to perform well. Just because he’s young doesn't mean that he has less responsibility, or special treatment. We expect him to do his job to the best of his ability, because it's his responsibility to step up and lead his team.” Logan sat out the second game against Carbon. Jaidon Tueller (a Senior) who has passed experience as a quarterback, has taken up the responsibility, until Logan can return in full health, and led the mighty Lions to victory and will continue to do so until the young quarterback returns.

New teachers at Payson High School

This year Payson High School has been blessed with the opportunity to have a ton of new faculty members and teachers who are excited, not only to be Lions, but to teach something to the students of Payson High! Last year PHS had some teachers that decided to write their life story somewhere else by retiring.  On a more positive note, this year Payson High will be gaining ten new teachers! (and other faculty members). One in the math sector, two in the science sector, two in the english sector, two in the History sector, and one in Resource. All of them are a great addition to the Payson High School family, and who are all here to help, guide, and inspire our learning.

Mrs. Krewson (Math)

“I have always loved learning and education. I love being challenged, overcoming it, and growing from it.” Mrs. Krewson is happily married, she doesn’t have any kids yet, but she loves her husband very deeply. “ I am reminded of a Harry Potter quote, "The wand chooses the wizard, Harry." I didn't choose to be a math teacher, math teaching chose me.” her hobbies as you can guess are quoting Harry Potter, cooking, traveling trying new things, and watching movies/TV shows with her adorable husband! She originally wanted to be an Elementary teacher but ended up switching to high school math teacher.

The SFJHS PE/Health department was not quite ready to let summer slip away without one last swim party.

Many students and their families came and enjoyed the Spanish Fork Pool on Friday September 1st. We’re happy so many people came out.  It’s great to be active!  And it’s so fun!

A big “Thank you!” to the all those who helped out in this activity-- especially Brad Graham and all the employees at the Spanish Fork Water Park.

If you think this should become a yearly tradition, like this post on our Facebook page.
