It's that time of year again when students have the opportunity to tour different universities around the state. This year will be slightly different than previous years because the day we have college tours is actually a day of school for all students, instead of sophomores staying at school to take the pre-ACT.

Pick up your registration sheet from the counseling office. The tours are being hosted in conjunction with Salem and Springville. There are limited seats on each tour. It is recommended that students register early so they can get their desired tour. The cost of the tour is $5 and students need to get their parents signature.

The Family, Career and Community Leaders of America held their first ‘Waffle Wednesday’ of the year on Sep. 6, 2018 where they introduced their leadership, the activities that were coming up and encouraged the waffle eaters to join the club. Mrs. Heaps, coordinator for the organization, said, “Get your friends and join together, that’s what makes it fun.” Additionally, students that pay the $20 dues before Monday the 11th, get to go on a field trip to the State fair, and get a membership shirt.

During the meeting, Danielle Wilkinson explained how the club organizes different events including Sadie Hawkins and Red Ribbon week. They need help with setting up, decorating and planning. Any student, not just FCCLA members, can sign up to help for the events, all you have to do is talk to Mrs. Heaps or an officer.

This years officers are: Clara Beddoes, Kassie Neal, Makell Loveless, Katelyn Connelly and Danielle Wilkinson. The officers and Mrs. Heaps highly encourage students to join FCCLA, not only to get involved, but also to “promote personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education.”

Hindsight is 20/19

It’s finally time for the class of 2019 to shine. All of us have been daydreaming about senior year since elementary school graduation and secretly wishing to be the class of 2020 because it sounds cooler.

A lot of people come out of their senior year telling the junior class to not be afraid to try new things because it’ll be over before you know it.

Leading up to the last first day of high school is the same as every year, right? You go into it with the same attitude which is that you can’t wait for the school year to be over, but a few Payson High School alumni have a few words to change that.

Bryce Apgood from the class of 2017 said, “I would have done a lot more… seized the moment, I guess if that makes sense. You only get to be a senior in high school once and it goes by fast. So basically I would have done as many of the activities and stuff as I could and enjoyed school!” Brandon Harris from the class of 2018 said, “It goes by really fast, try everything (not the bad stuff though) leave with no regrets.”

They say senior year is the best year but it can only be the best if the students make it be. So what do you say class of 2019, are you up to making this the most unforgettable year?

Welcome Back!

Tue, 08/21/2018 - 11:36am

August 21 marks the first day of the 2018-2019 school year.  One new change this year is a new bell schedule.  Here is the link to the student menu:

The new schedule is very similar to last year's change, but this year, Intervention will begin with fourth period on Tuesdays instead of first period.  This should allow students to receive more help throughout the week, and especially on Fridays.

Good luck to all students as you begin a new year.
