Guide to Parking at PHS

Payson High School News - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 10:56am

Finding a Parking Spot at Payson High School is like trying to find water in the desert. At least that is what students think. PHS actually has a lot of parking around the school, but students don’t want to take the time to look around. Both students and teachers are frustrated. They can park in the actual student parking lot, but a lot of the time it is filled to the brim with cars. Other places the students can park are behind the Auto Shop or even in the Seminary parking lot.

Did you know that there is a parking lot right across the street from the High School? There are lots of parking spaces, you just have to take the time to look. But also there are places where students can’t park. For example: the Faculty parking lot right at the front of the school or the area on the side of the Auto Shop.


Mrs. Whitbeck, a Math teacher here at Payson High School said this, “I hate it when I come from lunch getting my Costa Vida and my spot is taken by a student,” showing that even Teachers are frustrated with the parking crisis. Now that we are in January, when it snows, the parking crisis is just going to get worse.This has been a guide to parking at PHS. Use it and live it Payson High School.

Rematch with the Wasps

With the loss to the Wasatch Wasps, and taking second in last year's State wrestling Tournament, there has been a great determination coming from our wrestling team to come back and beat them as in a way of revenge this new season of 2017-18. Although, Wasatch has now been moved up to 5A, and are no longer in our region and have no way of compromising our chances of a State Title in 4A. But that didn’t stop the team from wrestling them anyway. On January 4th of the new year, Payson traveled to Heber Valley to face Wasatch once again. With Wasatch ahead by 11 points, the final score  of the duel was, Payson 27 Wasatch 38.

Sherry Plaisted Receives PEAK Award

Brockbank Elementary News - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 12:07am

Brockbank's Sherry Plaisted was recognized and received the PEAK (Positive Energy and Kind) Award for January. She along with six other deserving Nebo employees were honored Wednesday night, January 10 at the School Board Meeting. Congratulations Sherry!

Sherry Plaisted, Facilitator, Brockbank Elementary
Nominated by: Emmalee Stewart, Jessica Larsen, Camille Pearson, Erin Spung, Larraine Nelson
“Sherry is an amazing mentor, who is always looking for ways to help those she is mentoring. She keeps herself accessible any time of the day for questions and to help others talk through problems. Sherry is encouraging and always finds the positive in the teachers she is mentoring. She would point out the things she loved that were going on in my classroom. She would help us to be successful by guiding us through problems to find solutions, rather than just giving us the answers. Sherry doesn’t do these things because it is her job, she does it because she is kind and truly cares for the people that she mentors and wants them to be successful. Because she has such an impact on the teachers at Brockbank, her impact on the students at the school is endless. She dedicates countless hours to improving the STAR program at the school, always looking for ways to help more students succeed. She devotes her personal time talking through lessons and goes out of her way to help teachers prepare things for the classroom. Sherry is more than an intern facilitator, she is a mentor devoted to her job and to the success of everyone at Brockbank. She fills in wherever she is needed, with a smile on her face. She is always willing to help anyone, and everyone, with whatever she can.

“Sherry always goes the extra mile for absolutely everyone she encounters. She is such a wonderful mentor. She is willing to help with anything asked and she always has a smile on her face. She helped me grow as an educator in more ways than I ever could have imagined. She is truly an incredible person.”

“Sherry has been an amazing mentor and friend. She is so patient and is willing to help in anyway that teachers need. She is always willing to come in and model lessons for teachers as well as take a guided reading group when you are overwhelmed. She is amazing!”

“I would have never survived my intern year without her! She makes her interns work extra hard; but because of that, I was more prepared for my future teaching years. She taught me everything I needed to know and went above and beyond the things she was required to do. Sick? She was there. Hungry? She was there. Classroom not set up? Management problems? Lacking anything? She was there. I've never had so much support from one person in the school setting ever, and I don't believe anyone can be as great as she is.”

What do Fossils Tell Us?

We know a lot about animals today because we can observe and analyze them in their habitats. What about the organisms that are now extinct? Do we know what they were like? We can tell a lot about a creature by the fossils that they left behind. These 4th graders can tell you what to look for in a fossil to learn about creatures long ago!

Macie Steele Receives PEAK Award!

Taylor Elementary News - Wed, 01/10/2018 - 8:59pm

Macie Steele was nominated by Courtney Corbin for a PEAK award which is given to those who go above and beyond in Nebo School District.  She was presented her Award at Wednesday night's Board Meeting. 

“Macie worked at our school in the lunch room. She knows every kid by name and dances around wearing her ‘Taco Tuesday’ headband. She sings to the kids coming through the line about all of the yummy ingredients in the day's meals. She reminds the students to grab their fruits and veggies.

“We have a special needs employee that also works in the lunchroom. Macie makes her feel like a million bucks. When this employee had a primary dance to attend, Macie brought her a special shade of pink lip gloss to wear for the evening. Macie escorted this employee to our school's birthday party as her special guest. They walked arm in arm the entire night. When the employee went to Disneyland, Macie made the student a special travel bag for the plane.”

On January 8th, 9th, and 10th, Drama 1 students put on a show for great laughs!

 These Drama 1 students have been working very hard for a few months now and the result is worth it. Without the right props or set pieces or even the materials for the puppets, these students still managed to have fun and to ensure members of the audience had just as much fun.

 Even though some puppets may seem crazy or even creepy, these puppets can put on one great show! The puppet shows only lasted about three to five minutes, but the amount of effort that goes into each one is impossible to ignore.

Learning About the Middle Ages

To kick off learning about the Middle Ages, several sixth grade classes were visited recently by a Viking knight, Sir Bailey. The sixth graders learned all about what it meant to be a knight during the Viking times, what they wore, weapons that they used, and what their lives were like. It was so interesting to have a visitor from the past to bring history alive!
