Mrs. Searle hosted her second annual Red Ribbon Week wristband competition.This competition included her B1 class to see who could keep their Red Ribbon Week wristband on the longest. Last year the competition was a two-way tie only because the class was ending. This year, there is an official winner, Brian Espinoza. Brain said, “Sometimes i just wanted to take it off and others wanted to rip it off.” His prize was the satisfaction of winning and some wool socks.

 

The competition started October 23, 2017,and after 82 days, Brain is still wearing the wristband. Mrs Searle said,the reason why I hold these competitions is because being Drug free  should not just be for a week, it should be all the time.

Gaming and You!

Do you play games a lot? Do you love playing them? If you said yes to any of these questions then you are a gamer! Some people think gaming is bad, and they are right when it comes to some things, but that’s only if you mistreat gaming. “Wait, what do you mean by mistreat?”  Well I mean you play them when you shouldn’t be playing them instead of working on your job or schoolwork. But you can still play them when you are all done. Now I know you are going to say. “But everyone knows that!” But the things is: no one does, so get it under control.

Now let's talk about all the GOOD things gaming does. For starters it makes people develop coordination and on-the-spot thinking. Most games throw challenges at the player, making them react instantly along with minimap placements and distance. Other sets of games teach you to make moral choices, ways to make a strategy or a plan, and how to pay attention to detail.

Did I mention that gaming can grow sibling relationships? Now I would like to tell you about some games that help prove my point. The first game I would like to tell you about is Human: Fall Flat. In this game you and a friend can play together, either online or on the couch, and you must either complete different goals. This game is on many different platforms, whether it be computer or console. Another game I would like to tell you about is called Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. In this split screen game you and a friend can control a ship to fight various monsters and get back to the other ship.

 

These are just some examples of some great games. There are more of these games out there, you just have to go looking for them!

Payson Mayor Youth Recognition Award - Kennedy Ercanbrack

Kennedy Ercanbrack – 9TH GRADE

Mt. Nebo Jr. High School

Kennedy Ercanbrack, an 8th grade student at Mt. Nebo Jr. High, was nominated to receive the Payson City Mayor’s Award for the month of January. Kennedy is a kind and considerate student at MNJHS.  We are thrilled to have her receive this award from the Payson City Council.

Here's what some of Kennedy's teachers had to say about her:

Kennedy is a smart, resourceful student. Kennedy immediately grasps concepts with ease and always provides thoughtful insights to class discussions. She is an accomplished student and a dedicated friend to her classmates. It is a pleasure to have her in class.

Kennedy has a plethora of great qualities: she is kind, intelligent, friendly to everyone, and she demonstrates great leadership. But the most impressive trait she demonstrates is that she is fearless.  In choir it is an intimidating experience to audition for a solo. And, even though she is so nervous she sometimes shakes, she has never missed an opportunity to audition. It is an impressive use of courage.  I am proud to have her in Women's choir.

Kennedy has a scientific mind.  She loves to push questions to explore the world around her.  Her persistence and determination to gain answers to her intriguing questions serves her and others around her well. Kennedy's ideas are inspirational. It is a pleasure to be her teacher.

Kennedy never shies away from responsibility. If she sees something that needs to be done, she does it without being asked. She always takes the lead when presented with a task. Not only is Kennedy a good academic student, but she is kind, thoughtful, understanding and fun to be around.  She is willing to learn and teach others. Kennedy is an excellent example of the ROAR of Mt. Nebo Jr. High.   Congratulations Kennedy!

January Mayor Award

Payson Junior High School News - Thu, 01/04/2018 - 3:31pm

(more pictures available)

The recipient of the Mayor Award for January is PJHS student Viviana Lopez. Viviana was selected for this award because of her hard work in school, her willingness to participate and help others, and her positive attitude. Here are what some of Viviana's teachers have to say:

Viviana Lopez was elected LIA president by her peers. She's an excellent leader and always does her best efforts  to have a friendly environment to make everybody feel that anything is possible. Viviana is organized, a hard worker, and an achieved student. I have no doubt that Viviana will accomplish whatever she chooses to do in life. I see daily how her peers seek her out everyday, that is the highest praise anyone can give. - Mrs. Padlock

 

Viviana is great at participating in class and helping those around her. She is always trying to solve problems on her own, but is not shy about asking for help when she needs to. She is a hard worker and a great student to be the recipient of the Mayor's Award! - Ms. Failes

 

She is so helpful in ESL. She always tries to answer the questions in group discussions - and most of the time is spot on!  She is a kind student - looking out for people who need extra help. - Ms. Clayton

 

Vivi is a fun and vivacious personality who is a hard worker and a good example to others in the school. - Mr. Davis

 

I had Viviana last year, but she was always a good student. She also was willing to help those around her in class when they didn't understand. I also know that she is very involved in LIA and does that. What a rockstar! - Ms. LeBaron

 

Viviana is a student who doesn't go unnoticed. She quietly comes in each day ready to work and do her best. Viviana is diligent about coming prepared daily and putting in her best effort. I love her happy disposition and her willingness to participate--she is a model student and a fine example to her peers. Congrats! - Mrs. Gillie

Great work, Viviana! Thank you for being a Grizzly Hero!
