(more pictures available)Natalie Brady, our MNJHS World Civilizations and Geography teacher, Girls Basketball Coach, and Student Council Advisor was recently awarded the Crystal Apple Award from the Utah Education Association. Natalie was selected by her peers to receive this prestigious award. MNJHS Faculty and students said the following about Ms. Brady: Natalie is an amazing teacher, coach, and student council advisor at Mt. Nebo Junior High. She maintains high expectations for her students in class and other activities and she works hard to help them meet those high standards. She is always willing to help out and take on responsibilities when she sees a need and is a wonderful advocate for her students, department, and school. Building school spirit in a Junior High can be a challenge, but Natalie does an impressive job of getting students to take pride in Mount Nebo. She gets to know students as individuals and creates an environment which helps them live up to their potential. Ms. Brady earns her student’s respect and sets high expectations, but in their words, “she is really chill when she doesn’t need to always be serious and has a great sense of humor.” Natalie is the kind of dedicated educator that is an asset to her school and her students and is very deserving of the Crystal Apple Award.
Congratulations Ms. Brady - WE LOVE YOU!!!

Every two years, Mrs. Thomas’ Clothing and Fashion classes are eligible to go to America’s fashion capital, New York City. There they will be able to learn the strategies and secrets of how to dress uniquely and in vogue, depending on the situation.
There will be a student/parent meeting on Thursday, February 8 at 7:00 PM where ambitious fashion and sewing students will learn the specifics of the visit to The Big Apple. The actual trip will take on the week of October 15, 2018. This is a great opportunity to witness and show off what PHS students have been learning in the real fashion-forward world. Fashion Strategies student, Jaycee Zimmerman, who is definitely going says, “I’m excited to get out of Payson, see exciting new cultures, all the different people, and go to historic places in America.” Although the $1500 may seem expensive, however, the tour will cover a meetup with well known designers, a show on Broadway, a visit to the 9/11 memorial and five nights in a hotel in the heart of NYC, Times Square: something that isn’t easy to get offered any other day. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is only a small part of the big apple that’s Mrs. Thomas’s classes.

Discovery Gateway came to the school and taught us about chemical reactions. The presenter did several experiments that showed us examples of chemical and physical changes. Each class had a session of their own where they were able to conduct experiments and determine if their reaction was physical or chemical. Check out live videos on our Facebook page.
