Another teacher that joined the faculty members at Payson High School is History Teacher Gabe Smith. Who arrived at PHS to bring the same fascination he had for History to his students. Mr. Smith achieved his ambition of becoming a History teacher and joined the PHS faculty. When asked why he decided to teach history, he said he had a fascination with learning about diverse cultures and wars, and that he “always had an affinity to help people out.” He also wants all the students to know that he’s always there to help and listen if you need someone to talk to.He likes metal music and going to those kind of concerts in his free time, as well as playing Magic the Gathering, gaming, reading and sports.
Ms. Mosbacker joined the teaches at Payson High School and is now a History Teacher, that’s here for her students’ success and to help anyone who needs help. Ms. Mosbacker is here to inspire students to succeed just like her past teachers have inspired her. When asked why she wanted to become a teacher she replied, “...I wanted to share my love of history with others so I became a History teacher.” In her free time, Ms. Mosbacker enjoys reading, video games and playing Dungeons and Dragons. So far what she likes about Payson is that everyone is so nice and welcoming and that the students have so much Pride for the school.
6th grade students from Mrs. Murdoch's class are studying the World contients. They had the amazing opportunity to create them using playdough. Great Job Dragons!

Sage Creek Dragons had a fantastic time exploring the Discovery Gateway museum. Students were able to write their names in Chinese, cut out different Chinese art, make dragons, play music, dance, and that was only in the Chinese exhibit. They also were able to see a live behive in action, and a rescue helicopter. Thank you to our parents who came with us. And a huge shout out to the staff at Discovery Gateway museum for making this opportunity possible.
School is off to a GREAT start! Here are some important dates coming up in September that you will want to remember:

After learning about Vincent Van Gogh and his style of painting, two of his most famous paintings, Starry Starry Night and Sunflowers, were their choices to draw and paint.
Students were not allowed to use the watercolors straight out of the watercolor tray but were to be mixed and blended for a more realistic look. Great job!
Riverview first graders made Zero Hero shirts to celebrate the 10th day of school. They will wear these shirts every 10th day of school. The shirts will also remind them to make their mark and make it matter.
Congratulations to Ammon Wallace who was chosen from more than 6,000 students to be in Broadcom Masters' top 300 students for his science fair submission. Some of you will remember last year when we posted about Ammon's project that explored the possibility of extending the shelf-life of milk using blue light. We were impressed with Ammon's creative solution and it turns out that so were the judges.
This is a huge win for Ammon who will recieve free year-long subscriptions to science magazines and several other prizes. If chosen, the next step for Ammon would be Washington D.C. where 30 finalists will compete for top recognition and a grand prize of $25,000.
Make sure to congratulate Ammon and recognize this great achievement. Ammon is a great example for all of us of what it means to be Spartan Strong.

Sixth Grade Orchestra Program
Objective: To teach each member of the class the beginning essential techniques necessary to play their respective stringed instruments well. Daily practice will assist each student to succeed. For beginning string players, 20-30 minutes 5-6 days per week is recommended.
Instrument: Violins, violas, cellos and String Basses can be rented through Summerhays Music (Orem) (801) 226-1760, Bert Murdock Music (Orem) (801) 225-7922, Mountain Rock Music (Springville) (801)489-3000, Bill Harris Music (Provo) (801) 374-1440, Charles Liu (Midvale) (801) 255-9636 or Boothe Brothers Music (Spanish Fork) (801)798-7650. Currently the district is very low on inventory so unless you’ve already talked to me about rentals, you will need to look elsewhere.
Keep your eye on KSL.com Online Classifieds or Craigslist as well. There are dozens of instruments being sold all the time, sometimes for the same price or less than a school rental. I am always on the lookout for good deals and can help you find them.
