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.
Ms. Mosbacker joined the teaches at Payson High School and is now a History Teacher, that’s here for her students’ success and to help anyone who needs help. Ms. Mosbacker is here to inspire students to succeed just like her past teachers have inspired her. When asked why she wanted to become a teacher she replied, “...I wanted to share my love of history with others so I became a History teacher.” In her free time, Ms. Mosbacker enjoys reading, video games and playing Dungeons and Dragons. So far what she likes about Payson is that everyone is so nice and welcoming and that the students have so much Pride for the school.
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.

Our amazing MNJHS LIA and Student Council members particpated in the Payson Onion Days parade this week. Students delighted parade watchers by cooling them down with a few squirts of water. (Faculty & staff members in the audience may have received a few extra squirts!) These students exemplify leadership and dedication at MNJHS. We were excited to help our students Be The Change and Hear The Roar! Go MNJHS!

This week is our membership and donations drive. The top two classes that have returned the envelope and flyers by Friday September 8th will receive donuts in their first period class. The funds raised are used to provide dinners for teachers during Parent Teacher Conferences, Teacher Appreciation week and grants for teachers to buy what their students need. Last year we gave $400 in teacher grants. The grants purchased books, sewing supplies a projector and much more.
We appreciate you supporting our wonderful 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.”
