Last month we celebrated the wonderful remodel of our school. The old school bell was put into a display case for everyone to enjoy. Mayor Staheli rang the bell for the last time that night. We had many present and previous students of Goshen Elementary in attendance. Marcella Staheli shared memories from her days spent at Goshen Elementary. We love our school! We appreciate everyone's patience during the remodel and support during the celebration!

Day One:

We left at 9:30 on Thursday and after a two and a half hour bus ride we got to SUU (Southern Utah University) for a tour of the campus.  After that, we went to the gift shop, took some pictures, then went to the hotel and chilled. 

 Another bus ride took us to the Tuacahn Center for the Arts, but this one was only a hour long.  We saw “Matilda.”  It was amazing--lots of twists I was not expecting.  Overall I had a fun time.

 We drove back to our hotel and “slept”.

 Day Two: 

We woke up, got some hotel breakfast, and left for SUU where we had the opportunity to go to some fun classes with different high school ensemble performers. At about 3:30, after watching Diamond Fork’s Ensemble performance, we headed back to our hotel to get ready for our performance. We ran through our scene adding things to make it better. Spanish Fork Junior High’s Ensemble (featuring yours truly) did amazing! 

 After our performance, we went back to our hotel and practiced our individual events for tomorrow.  A lot of other kids went down to the pool where it got a little too loud. Then we got back to our rooms and slept.

 Day Three:

 After the last night in the hotel, we ate breakfast, got our stuff together, and left for the last day of competitions-- the individual events (duo/trio scenes and monologues).  Everyone did fantastic!

 Buuuut …..There was a lot of walking between campus buildings.

 After everything was said and done, we took a short walk to a restaurant called the Pastry Pub which had lots of varieties of food and pastries! I got a Quesadilla, an Italian soda, and a Canoli.  Everyone’s food looked really good.

 After that, it was time for the award ceremony where, unfortunately, we didn't place top three in anything—or so we thought.  Afterward, we climbed back on the bus, tired from the long trip.  After another two and a half hour long bus ride, we finally got back at about 11:20.  We unloaded the bus and went home after a long day.

 The Monday After the Competition:

During fifth period, Miss Holley got a call saying the judges messed up the overall total for our school!  It turns out we got third place over all the schools!

Mrs. Harmer is at it again!  First her student made Roman Temples out of school supplies.  Now they are building aqueducts out junk!  As you can tell by the photos, engagement was high as students learned how the ancient Romans got their water.

“My world history class built Roman aqueducts out of trash today,” reported Mrs. Harmer, “and they had an awesome time. They had to build it over 2 desks and have a ping pong ball go through it and land on a paper plate at the bottom without falling off. This simulated Roman aqueducts.”

Active, participatory learning like this might make some adults want to go back to Jr. High!

After eight years, Mr. Payson contest returns to PHS

The drama department is bringing back something a little bit unexpected to the students and faculty of Payson High. In the past, there have been many Miss Payson pageants with winners who have successfully represented the community. However, this year, the Mr. Payson competition has arisen, to wow and inspire the hearts of Payson High School.

This isn’t the first time Mr. Payson has been displayed. Jamilah McMurdie, famed math teacher and former cheer coach, explains that “Mr. Payson used to be a super big tradition around here, but it hasn’t happened for about eight years, so the drama department decided to bring it back.”

When brainstorming ideas for their annual fundraiser, the PHS drama department brought this historical idea to the table. Rock White, prominent drama teacher of Payson High, said that, “We were trying to think of a fun way to involve all the clubs, and to do an activity that would combine us for one performance...we have the cheerleaders that have choreographed the group number, we have brought in guest judges from the community.”

There are ten young men from PHS in the running for the title of Mr. Payson. When asked about why they decided to run for Mr. Payson, Logan Bennett, a senior, said, “I would be beyond inspired, honored everything [if I won]... I’m very spirited as it is and I might as well get the title.” Spencer Nelson, a senior, declared, “I just love this school and want to represent it well and I just want to have fun too.”

Another senior, Travis Pitcher, said, “I’m so thrilled. I’d love to leave a legacy for my younger brother when he comes to this school.”

White kindly announced during today’s Best Legs competition, “The actual Mr. Payson is Friday night at seven o'clock in the auditorium.  It is five dollars for students and six dollars general admission. It’s going to be a wonderful night celebrating all their talents and strengths of the men of Payson.” Come and support the candidates of Mr. Payson in their worthy goals.

These lucky kids had an awesome opportunity to eat lunch with the firefighters! These kids colored the firemen's picture perfectly and were randomly drawn as winners for this fun prize. The kids got to ride in the ambulance, talk with the emergency responders, eat a fancy lunch of hot dogs, soda and chips, and finally, they got to ride back on the firetruck. Thank you to the firefighters and emergency responders who spoiled them rotten!
