Wednesday February 7th was an awestruck night of pure, fluently released expression.  All five of Nebo School District’s high schools united in Payson High School’s auditorium for the Eighth Annual Dance Company Concert [Showcase]. There was fifteen dances performed that night, three of those were by Payson High’s Dance Company.

 

Although Payson’s dance company didn’t open the night, they didn’t need to because as attendee, Haylee McKell, said “All of them did really good because they were all unified in their dancing, which can be hard to do with dances, Hip Hop especially.” Payson High’s first dance was their more contemporary one: “Angels” choreographed by Telley Carlson. The slow movements and music indeed did make them move around with angel-like qualities. After four dances from the other Nebo high schools, The team danced to “No Limits,” a hip-hop dance choreographed by Justin Sauceda. The last Payson performer was Dance Sterling Scholar Kobbi Pyne, who danced to “Torn” which was choreographed by Pyne herself. Overall, the dancers did an amazing job by moving to the music together.

Pyeongchang 2018 Olympics

There’s one word that can sum up how the world feels about this years session at the winter olympics. Wow! World renowned athletes have stated that this year is one of the most successful and world changing events in world history. But, to truly understand the full wonder and amazement, you need to know the background of what has happened the last couple of years at the olympics.

 

The olympics started back in ancient Greece, and since then they have grown in popularity and have become an event that spans across the world. In this span of time, the event has been retired and reborn a couple of times. It has also been postponed and cancelled because of world issues and arguments. One popular example is when the 1916 Summer games were cancelled because of threats and the onset of the First World War. This happened again with 1940 and 1944 because of World War II.

 

The games taking place in Pyeongchang, South Korea this year is the follow up season to the Winter games held in Sochi, Russia in 2014. We have previous competitors returning from the four year waiting period. Such include Gus Kenworthy, a returning freestyle skiing star. Along with him, Lowell Bailey, a three time Biathlon athlete from the USA. There’s many more athletes from various Countries and who are individually talented and bring a challenge to every competitor this Year!

 

Words cannot describe how amazing and talented everyone is this year! Starting off, Olympic Skater from the US, Mirai Nagasu was the first woman in America, third Overall, to complete a triple Axel in an Olympic Competition. She scored 137.53 at the Olympics, putting the USA in second behind the “Olympic Athletes from Russia” (OAR).

 

Another feat for the USA includes a 17-yr-old from Colorado. His name is Red Gerard. He is the youngest Snowboarder from the USA to win a Gold Medal at the Olympics.

 

Despite what Country you route for, we can all agree that this years olympics were amazing, and we can’t wait for 2022!

Blind Date with a Book

This year for Valentine’s Day, otherwise known as Single Awareness Day, our librarian Mrs. Redman decided to set up people on Blind Dates with books. Valentine’s Day’s an exciting day for those who have a date or a valentine, but for people who don’t have any plans, cuddling up with a mug of hot chocolate and a good book can be the best way to spend the day. The excitement from the student body that participated in this was very contagious. A student said, “ I was so excited when I walked in the library and saw that it was the blind dates with books. I’ve really been looking forward to it! It literally made my whole day.” Each book was individually wrapped in brown paper with a cute ribbon and a heart with a quote from the book attached. The quotes on the book pulled the attention of many people who chose books. As they ripped open the wrapping on the book there was a range of different emotions that went through their faces. There was some surprised looks, some people put the book back discovering that they didn’t want it. Others were excited to jump into a new story, one they may have never considered before then. This was such a great fun way for everyone to get into Valentine’s day spirit. Hopefully it becomes a tradition here at PHS. A big thanks to everyone who participated and especially to Mrs. Redman who created such a fun activity for our student body.
