The recipient of the Mayor Youth Recognition Award for December is Hayley Ringger. Hayley is receiving this award for her outstanding positive attitude, willingness to help others, and the kindness she shows to her fellow students at PJHS. Take a look at what some of the faculty members at our school have to say about Hayley:

"I had Hayley last year in 7th grade Honors Math.  She is such a positive person and always went the extra mile in my class.  She has a great attitude and enthusiasm for everything she does.  Hayley is perfect for this award!" – Mrs. Purcell

"Hayley works in the front office as an office aide during third period each day. We have a very busy office, and each day Hayley jumps in without even being asked to answer phones, deliver notes, and any other task that needs to be addressed. She does each task without complaint and with a cheerful attitude. We rely heavily on Hayley to help the office run smoothly. She is an amazing girl, and we appreciate all she does." – Mrs. Penny Wilson

"Hayley is a very good student in my class. She is prompt and pays attention well. She sets a good example for her fellow students. I recommend her without reservation to receive this award." – Mr. Ward

"As well as being an excellent student, Hayley is an outstanding citizen and kind person. I love having her in choir. Hayley works hard, is very conscientious, and is a friend to all." – Mrs. Bolz

"Hayley is always on top of the ball. She participates in many outside activities and is in honors classes. She is willing to ask questions and help other students. She rocks at being a good example to her peers." – Ms. LeBaron

"Hayley is always willing to complete the assigned tasks from the office.  She works hard and is very pleasant with everyone she associates with.  Hayley works well with others and is a dedicated student.  In addition, she has excellent attendance. PJHS is proud of Hayley Ringger." – Principal Swenson

Thank you for being such an awesome example to all of us at PJHS, Hayley. Congratulations!

A Little Christmas Spirit

Payson High School News - Thu, 12/07/2017 - 10:56am

Tis the season of giving, receiving and loving. Almost everyone can agree, unless you’re a real scrooge, that this time of year is filled with a lot more joy and love than the other 11 months of the year. Everyone is in the spirit of giving and looking for ways to show you care about someone. It’s definitely a special time. Why do you think kids love Christmas the most out of all the holidays? It may start because they get presents, but there is more to it there is a different feel in the air this time of year.

There’s a reason that schools take weeks off for Christmas, there isn’t any other holliday that schools will shut down for that long, not one. It’s because this is the holiday that brings together family and friends.  Kennedy Williams said, “ooh, my siblings and I sleep downstairs in sleeping bags for fun.” Christmas brings together families that might not do much together, and makes them want to do things with each other. Emily Howarth said,”My family has Christmas Eve dinner at my great grandparents house!” Once again Christmas is bringing people together.

Let’s not forget what Christmas is all about, the season of giving. Whether you’re giving a little or a lot, it doesn’t matter. The giving of gifts to family, friends, or even people you might not even know. There’s always places to donate, especially around Christmas time. In front of Walmart there are places to donate your spare change, there’s tons of toy and clothing drives always looking for donations, and there are soup kitchens where you can donate money but you can donate time too. There’s so many opportunities to give this time of year, and that is a big way you can keep the Christmas spirit in your mind and heart.

 

As Christmas rolls around please remember why we celebrate Christmas. Keep in mind those you love, and those who are in need of love. There are so many people out there who want to feel Christmas in their hearts and with your help we can share that spirit with everyone. So keep your eyes open for those that you can help in anyway possible.With the right attitude and some good Christmas spirit we can change many hearts.

Colorful Bird

These colorful birds began with a simple drawing, then magazine pages were cut into triangles and layered to complete their birds.

The students realized how quickly the bird came alive after layering it. Their drawings went from a 2D image to a 3D finished project. Each bird is different and unique, just like in nature.

 Nice job to all!
