It is that time of year again. The time that every student both dreads and loves. It's the time of end of the year testing and finals but it's also the final month before summer vacation. It's the time that we say good-bye to our seniors and watch as they go off to start their lives. It's also the time for the very last edition of the Mane Street Journal for the 2017-2018 school year. Thank you so much for all the support that you have given us this year. So without further ado please enjoy this months edition of The Mane Street Journal.

Mrs. Carlson and her team of wood shop students have filled the Payson High main gym with wood wonders once again this year. Pieces range from bed stands, dressers and drawers, to nightstands, pool tables, and hope chests.
Many of these projects have been in the works since the beginning of the year and highlight the different skills available within the woodworking trade. Many pieces this year have logos or images etched, burned, or laser printed into the wood.
Come stop by the gym tonight until 8:00 pm to see this amazing showcase.
On May 1, baseball lovers and community members came together at the “Strike Out Cancer” Payson vs. Lehi baseball game to support Dena Hiatt and her fight against cancer. Hiatt, whose son is on the Payson Baseball team, expressed in an email to Payson High, “It is things like the coming together of a small little baseball community on our behalf that reminds me how much love and support we have. No matter what happens we will be alright!”
Supporters donated items that ranged from baseball equipment to goodies and blankets. Fans were encouraged to “Bid on the cause, not the item” which resulted in $5,200 total funds raised. The next day, at the Lehi High baseball field, as the Lions battled the Pioneers again, many were touched as the Lehi Baseball team wore pink to show their support of the Hiatt family and presented the family with a gift basket.
“It meant so much to see so many people supporting the cause and Payson Baseball,” says Hiatt. She adds, “Thank you for all your donations whether it be money, auction items, time out of your busy lives, all the baseball parents working on our behalf, your kind words and prayers.”
We wish the Hiatts the best as they continue their fight.
Graduation, whether you are excited for it or dreading it, it’s been on our minds since kindergarten. We have worked for thirteen years to get to this point. Everyone has gone through life experiences as small as making the first boxed mac and cheese dinners of many, all the way up to learning how to do complex trigonometry and how to make a somewhat correct works cited page. If you think about it, we’ve come so far. Who would have thought that one sheet of paper would affect our lives so much.
We’re all going out in the real world after graduation to become the people we choose to be, but when we look back to old memories of ourselves and think about all the things we had in high school, it has been an unforgettable adventure. From seeing each other grow up together, to seeing each other earn crazy awards, to developing skills many people wouldn’t think to learn or have the courage to do, I hope we all look back to 2018, and I hope we think of the days where we were all laughing, cheering on our teams, dancing at prom, and going on field trips we never asked for but will someday be envious of.
Class of 2018 be proud of yourself, because we have finally gotten past all of the troubles of high school, and were moving onto the next step in our lives. We have been molded by hard working, selfless, wonderful people, for many years and now it’s our time to act alone. We have to make our own decisions and use the tools and advice to become successful wonderful people. Congratulations seniors. Were all so proud of you and never forget that your always apart of the Lion Pride!

Utah’s KTS is an incentive program that gives out “Key Cards” to students during the school year which they can later cash into prizes from free food like Costa Vida to visits to the Natural History Museum of Utah and The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. At the end of every school year, there’s an assembly where finalists that meet certain criteria are required to attend. This assembly happened on Friday, April 10th.
Fifty finalists were called down by color groups and students were singled out for a mini “interview” where the presenter, asked the student who they wanted to join them down there to give them more luck. Warren Wilson called down the entire orchestra, others called down Choir students and the Soccer team to give them a spice of luck.
After every color group, there were small competitions like burrito eating contests, a tricycle race between Ms. Oda and Coach Clark—where Oda was victorious—and a money blowing machine where a student caught money straight from the air.
Close to the end, the five finalists; Delhesmy Solis, Sage Jackson, Lylah Beaudry, Bryson Elliott and Grace Carillo were trying out five keys and inside an inflatable car, there was a box that only one key would unlock. The person who got the compatible key won an iPod and will move on towards a car giveaway. The giveaway will be transmitted live on KUTV news and five brand-new cars will be handed out to the 10-13 finalists from different schools. A obvious look of pleasant surprise hit Sage Jackson when she realized that her key had been the one that opened the lock.
Marjie Ralph is an English teacher at Payson High School who has been teaching for 13 years. She currently teaches three different UVU concurrent enrollment courses. All sorts of technology are used in her classroom: Canvas, Google, Voice Thread, Screen Cast-o-Matic, Chromebooks, Google Extensions, Adobe Spark, and many other cloud-based tools. The technology tool that she claims is the most helpful is her Nebo Digital Coach. Marjie says, "I have found with technology I can spend a lot of time 'figuring it out,' or I can make one simple call to my digital coach, and she always knows what to do. I love having a digital coach that I can email, text, or have come to my classroom." Thanks to her digital coach, Marji has been inspired to work towards both an Ed Tech and CTE endorsement.
