“I play for fun and for all of the friendships involved with the team,” said Bowers.

His favorite football player is Randall Cobb.

As another running back and defensive end, Bradley Nicol has been playing since third grade. He dreams of playing for Ohio State after high school.

Preparing for a game he said, “I watch hours of film, and I also try and clear my head.”

His favorite football players are Ezehiel Elliot and Walter Payton.

“I love the environment. I love being an influence to other kids and athletes,” said Nicol.

Rodrigue Bertrand, a defensive back receiver, is playing football for his first year. His favorite football player is Odell Beckham Junior.

“All I do before a game is listen to music and just clear my head,” he said.

Bertrand wants play for the New York Giants. He loves to play football because it is fun.

Playing football since fourth grade, Dallin Packer is currently a tight end and a defensive end for the Red Devils. His team of choice is the Green Bay Packers

“I like the game and all of the friends I play this game with,” Packer said.

His favorite football player is Aaron Rodgers.  

Sione Kolomalu is a running back and a linebacker for the team. He has been playing football since he was in fourth grade. He wants to play at the University of Utah.

When preparing for the game he said, “I read my scriptures and say a prayer.”

Kolomalu’s favorite football player is Marshawn Lynch.

A Box For Our Friend, Deryk

On October 6th, 2017,  a beloved student here at PHS, Deryk Lowe, passed away unexpectedly. Through the mourning of his death, a few Payson High students took the liberty of tributing Deryk and his family with a beautifully crafted wooden box.

Tyrell Russell, a senior at Payson High School, said that Deryk was involved in the woodshop class, and that is how building a box in Derek's memory came about. Russell states, “We built [the box] for his family… We thought it would be a nice thing for them to put his clothes and blankets and stuff inside.” The boys behind this amazing service are Tyrell Russell, Jordan Draper, Wyatt Monroe, Rhylan Roundy  and Gage Judd.

The box took about a week to construct, carve, and prepare. The boys presented the Lowe family with the box at the viewing, then again at the funeral. (Tyrell Russell and Jordan Draper, 2017). The gesture was powerful and meaningful; Something that can shed a little light on a dark circumstance.

Jordan Draper, a junior at Payson High, said that the main purpose of building the box, was so that the Lowe family could have a piece to remember Deryk by.

It’s apparent that the boys who helped craft the box didn’t do it out of vain, or selfishness. Rather, they did it to show their condolences and love to the Lowe family. When a death occurs so tragically and sudden, there are many ways to handle grief. Anger, frustration, sadness, and confusion are all common reactions and behaviors that occur when tragedy strikes. However, these young men put aside their own feelings, and made something memorable, beautiful and genuine to help a family in, what could be, one of the darkest times in their lives.

Our school was lucky for having had a student as great as Deryk Lowe. Students, faculty, and staff will miss our fellow Lion, and commend those who have honored Deryk’s name in such a meaningful way.

PHS Wins First Place at Japanese Sports Festival

Payson High School Japanese students proved that they don’t just practice the Japanese language all day when they took first place in the first ever multi-school Japanese Sports Festival, held at Skyridge High School up in Lehi on October ninth. “It looked like we got third place, but after a recount, we actually won first place,” says Mrs. Berrio, the school’s Japanese teacher, “We were on a team with Salem Hills High School, which was a lot of fun. So instead of being rivals, we were friendly and won together.”

Among some of the activities that took place at the sports festival, the most popular that japanese students participated in were obstacle courses, Horse War - a game kind of like “Chicken,” a pinecone toss, blindfold art, human spelling in which they spelled out japanese characters, tug of war, bento contests, and etc. “It was really fun, and the food was amazing! Why don’t we continue elementary school-style field trips into high school?” Reflected japanese student Ford McClellan.

“U.S. schools should do “Undokai” (sports day) also,” said japanese student Angela Barreda, “It's fun and unites classes.” All in all, make sure to congratulate japanese students on giving PHS a good rep, and look forward to more annual Japanese Sport Festival’s in the future.

RED RIBBON WEEK

DID YOU KNOW children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don't, yet only a quarter of teens report having these conversations. This is Red Ribbon Week at SFJH, an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States. The 2017 theme is, “Your future is key, so stay drug free.” We will have themed days throughout the week along with information and lessons on how to stay drug free.

Monday: Wear Red Day – Pledge to be drug free.

Tuesday: Halloween Costumes – Scare away drugs.

Make sure the costume is school appropriate, no face paint, weapons, masks, or hats/hoods that cover the face. Also, some classes are sharing candy during class. If candy is brought to school, make sure it is purchased at the store and individually wrapped. We have many students who have peanut/nut allergies in the school. Please consider this when purchasing any candy your child may bring. Thank you.

Wednesday: Hat Day – Hats off to good choices.

Thursday: Pajama Day – Follow your dreams, say no to drugs! School appropriate pajamas only.

Friday: Team Jersey/Shirt Day.

Congratulations to the 7th grade football team for winning the super bowl! The 7th graders are the only grade in the school that won their super bowl. They played a tough game against Springville, a team that they had lost against earlier in the season. Everybody came together as a team and several students made some great plays that helped our team take the victory. That is incredible. We are so proud of the 7th graders! 

We are sad to see the season come to an end but it sure has been great. Especially for the 7th graders, they are probably so happy. If you see them anywhere just congratulate them!

Jazz Band

If you’re walking through the cafeteria one morning before school, you might just want to grab a bite of breakfast, settle in, and listen to the Jazz Band. Jeffrey Sass, who plays the alto saxophone says, “Jazz Band is a great before school activity where you play harder music than normal and you have to work harder and devote more time than Concert Band.” Lindsey Deveraux who plays the tenor saxophone says that being in the Jazz Band “has helped me learn more about music.”  

 Mr. Carter also teaches the Percussion Ensemble. Billy Thaler says, “I joined percussion class because I had always wanted to play drums. It's great. Mr. Carter is the best—super nice; I love learning from him. I also like to learn the xylophone which is what we are learning right now. I recommend piano experience; it makes it a lot easier.”  

 Jocelyn Hansbrow joined the ensemble because she thought it would be fun. “I've played piano since I was five and enjoyed it, and decided I should try something new. Mr. Carter is nice and funny, and of course I am fond of music.” 

Enoch Sanchez, who plays the trombone in the Jazz Band, wrote, "As the trumpet and trombone song blares through the room, as the saxophone plays the smooth notes of our own symphony, and while the cello's soft strum of the strings slowly fill the room with calming harmony, the entire world slows down, as if the only thing in the world is the rhythm and song of Jazz."

Kick Me!

Students in 7th grade Language Arts played a fun variation of the old “Kick Me” trick this month to learn about analogies. 

Instead of having a “kick me” sticker stuck on students’ backs, the stickers are words that are the answer to an analogy. Analogies are word pairs that show relationships between ideas such as hot is to cold as wet is to dry.

As students enter the classroom, each student is slapped on the back with a sticker. Then during class, students are up and about, looking at stickers on each others' backs as they search for the answer to each analogy. Fun!

Change in NC/NG Attendance Policy

Spanish Fork High School News - Fri, 10/27/2017 - 12:18pm
Attributions: 

This is a reminder that we have changed our NC/NG policy this year. In order to graduate from SFHS, each student will need 32 academic credits and 32 citizenship credits.

At the end of the term, we will no longer put an NG over an academic grade for attendance issues. We will, however, keep the NC in the Citizenship column and students will still need to serve detention and pay for the citizenship recovery as they have in the past. 

Please see the overview sheet attached to this post.
