The fifth-grade classes at Spring Lake Elementary recently enjoyed a fantastic field trip to the State Capitol in Salt Lake City on February 13, 2018. They enjoyed learning about the vital work that goes on at the Capitol for our state’s citizens. While there, students had an opportunity to see the state legislature in action by observing in both the senate and house galleries. Both Senator Henderson and Representative Marc Roberts took time to meet with students, share their experiences and answer questions about serving in the Legislature. The day ended with the students being given a private tour of the building. This field trip served as a wonderful culmination for their Constitution unit.

Park View sixth graders received a visit from Lance Conrad, the author of The Price of Creation series and The Weight of Swords. He entertained students with his personal experiences and discussed writing in a way that captivated students.  After the visit, students were not only excited to read his books but to start writing their own stories as well. Thank you, Mr. Conrad, for taking the time to inspire our students!

We're Just FRIENDS!!!

Payson High School News - Wed, 02/14/2018 - 10:20am

Have you ever found yourself in a situation with a friend where everyone thinks that you are dating or that you should date? We, Briton Wilson and Michelle Rushton, are in this kind of situation. All of our friends want us to date but we are the greatest friends, so it would just be too weird for us to start dating at this point. So we decided to go and find some other people in a similar situation.

Steffani and Micheal Green are brother and sister. They look exactly the same to some people, but to others, they just see a really cute couple that doesn’t exist. Steffani stated, “People just assume that if you hang out that you’re dating.” When asked for her opinion on the matter Steffani said, “It was silly, and a little ridiculous.” We couldn’t agree more!

Kyler Marvin is another victim of this problem. Kyler currently has a girlfriend, Maddi Mittlemen, although a lot of people who know Kyler assume that he is dating Jerica Smith, his cousin. He thinks it’s weird because they are relatives. They hangout and do a lot of stuff together. Maddi Mittlemen, his girlfriend, was in the same position as him. “I honestly think that it is kind of funny,” she said, “because the same thing happened to me when I was a Sophomore.” Maddi’s cousin, Kaden Mittlemen also goes to Payson. They would go to lunch together, and they hung out a lot, so everyone assumed that they were dating even though they have the same last name!

Emily Keller and Erin Miller are the best of friends. They have been friends since the sixth grade, so naturally they are really close and touchy. A lot of people think that they are dating because Emily is always holding Erin’s hands to warm them up. Emily sassily stated “We’re not Lesbians. We’re honestly confused, because we don’t do anything that’s lesbianish.”

In conclusion, there are many people out in this world that are just friends, so DON’T ASSUME THAT JUST BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE DO DIFFERENT THINGS THAN YOU, THAT THEY ARE DATING!!!!

Rachel Holt - February 2018 PEAK Award Winner

Payson Junior High School News - Tue, 02/13/2018 - 1:39pm

PJHS teacher extraordinaire, Mrs. Holt, recieved a PEAK award this month for her dedication to and hard work for the students and other faculty at Payson Jr. High School.

“Mrs. Holt goes above and beyond the call of duty. Although her increasingly busy home life (she is a mother of two beautiful children!) pulls her home more and more, she fights it and recommits herself to her profession daily. While she is at school, she is 100% at school. She juggles three different courses--Honors English for seventh grade, keyboarding, and student council."

“First, in Honors English she is the queen of engaging extra activities. So many teachers feel the pressure of the state core, and feel like it doesn’t allow time for the 'fun things'--Mrs. Holt makes time! Her students are always excited and engaged with their content because of her. She isn’t afraid to spend a little time on creative, artistic and fun things because she knows that’s how students will retain their learning. Her students produce impressive projects that really show their learning, and she proudly displays them in the hallways of the school. Her enthusiastic and creative ideas have definitely spread throughout our English Department."

'Keyboarding wasn’t a course that Mrs. Holt ever aspired to teach. There was a need, she was asked, and she filled it! She worked in her first few years on the extra teaching certification, along with the other million things new teachers are asked to do, to be able to teach it, and teach it well. She is always trying new things to motivate and capture her students to become excellent typists, including 'Blackout Wednesday' and other silly and motivating days."

“With the student council students, Mrs. Holt expects excellence, and that’s what she gets. Her students always do a great job creating uplifting events and advertising them. They are so professional on the morning announcements and at school assemblies--and you know it's because of Mrs. Holt behind the scenes!"

“Mrs. Holt brings so much to her classes and to the school. She is beloved among students, staff and parents. Her positivity uplifts everyone around her, and we are all inspired by her desire to do good. Mrs. Holt exemplifies excellence in teaching.”

Thank you for everything you do, Mrs. Holt!

American Indian Caucus Day Field Trip

Eileen Quintana, the Nebo Native American Program Manager, took 26 Nebo School District students on a trip to the state capitol. Three students (Canyon Haveron, SHHS, Ciera Alldredge, PHS, and Alfredo Quintana, MMHS) job shadowed senators and representatives for the day, which gave them an inside look into the process of law-making.

Those who didn't shadow were able to tour the capitol, including the "Telling My Utah Story" exhibit. Students visited the Museum of Fine Arts to see the "Go West" exhibit, which contains art of the American Frontier from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. This exhibit examines the development and disruption of the American West through more than eighty original artworks by Euro-American and Plains Indian artists. Kerrick Walker, PJHS student, was present at this wonderful event.

Students had the opportunity to meet and talk with Senator Henderson about issues that are of concern for our community. Students enjoyed seeing the artwork and sitting in the balcony where bills are passed into law. The American Indian Caucus Day gathering took place right next door, under the supervision of the Director of Division of Indian Affairs, Shirlee Silversmith, and her staff. As Nebo students entered the tribal leaders assembly, they were honored to have Navajo Nation Vice President Jonathan Nez address them with a special talk about responsibilities of future leaders. Goshute tribal Chairman Rupert Steele offered a prayer and blessed Nebo students on stage at this tribal leaders conference. Students met and ate with Utah tribal leaders and delegates who were very happy to see young Native American youth participating in this event. The field trip was informative and an important teaching experience.

Mrs. Capell's 8th Honors Math class recently ran a great scavenger hunt math race at Mt. Nebo Junior High. The hallways were abuzz with teams of students working together to solve problems. Students were required to solve math problems to get additional clues, and additional math problems. The team who solved all the equations first was the winner. From the front office, to the gyms, the excitement was infectious.  These kids love math! Thanks for the fun Mrs. Capell.
