Dear Parents,

It is Book Fair week! I always look forward to the Book Fair. Students are so excited to shop for affordable books, fun posters, and other educational products. I love it when students stop me in the hall to show me the book they got at the Book Fair. The Book Fair is open everyday this week from 8:30-3:30 and is located on the stage. It is a perfect time for you to come and do some early Christmas shopping. Thank you to our PTA for helping us bring the Book Fair to Brookside.

Reading to your children is so important as explained in this quote from the Washington Post article, “Why It’s Important to Read Aloud to Your Kids and How to Make It Count”. Amy Joyce wrote, “One of the most important things parents can do, beyond keeping kids healthy and safe, is to read with them. That means starting when they are newborns and not even able to talk, and continuing well beyond the years that they can read by themselves. Study after study shows that early reading with children helps them learn to speak, interact, bond with parents and read early themselves, and reading with kids who already know how to read helps them feel close to caretakers, understand the world around them and be empathetic citizens of the world.”

Thank you! Have a great week!

Our school offers so many amazing clubs and extracurricular activities to the students of Payson High. Whether it be clubs, sports teams, after-school organizations, etc. There are countless ways to get involved at PHS!  One of the cool clubs that deserves a lil’ love is HOSA. HOSA stands for Health Occupations Students of America. The entire organization focuses on areas of the medical field through hands on experience, conferences, meetings, and service projects.

Ciara Ford, a senior here at PHS, is a HOSA State Officer, the HOSA Vice President for Southern Utah, and a HOSA Officer for Payson High. When asked about the activities and experiences acquired with HOSA, Ciara stated that HOSA is in charge of the blood drive, decorating a Christmas trees for the upcoming “Festival of Trees: PHS”, food drives, etc. Ciara also shared some of the amazing opportunities that HOSA provides for its members, “[HOSA] explores different careers within health...Brian Blake is the advisor over HOSA. He’s really cool because he has ties with the hospital and can help out with us getting internships and different things like that... We have guest speakers come, we also go and do things like cadaver labs, we go to different businesses and see what they do. It’s an awesome club for anybody interested in healthcare, and there’s lots of opportunities for everyone involved in leadership, service, exploring health careers. [HOSA] is super great, super fun. We have a good time together.”

One of the amazing things about our school, is the wide variety of things students are able to participate in. HOSA is a great way to enhance the medical learning curve, make friends, and try new, exciting things.

Some of Payson High School students went to UVU for a conference on leadership. The conference had lots of tips on being a good leader and how to better serve people you come in contact with.  The conference was also about professionalism and also about “ how we can come to together to be a team.”

There was also a bunch of guest speakers and they motivated the students to become better leaders. There were also activities on team building. The leaders gave instructions on how to build a sandwich on team building. Jackie Hernandez and Kya Heimuli both recommended everyone should go and really learn about how to be a leader and help the people around you.

On November 1st, Seniors from both Spanish Fork High School and Maple Mountain High School had the opportunity to go on "College Tours." Seniors could choose to attend BYU/UVU, Utah State University, Snow College, University of Utah, MTECH Campuses, or USU Eastern. Representatives of the Colleges were there to greet the students, give them a personalized tour, and provide the students with information about their respective colleges. It was a great opportunity for students to visit a college campus and learn more about their post-secondary education options. Thank you to Kelly Seale, our Career Service Coordinator, for all her hard work and preparation in lining up the tours.

Today we had our Veterans Day Assembly, which is one of our favorite assemblies of the year. It began with the school choir singing a few patriotic songs. Next, we watched a video about how our National Anthem came to be. Then, all the veterans attending the assembly came up on stage to introduce themselves and tell what part of the military they served in. Last, the 5th grade sang patriotic songs while we viewed a picture slideshow of veterans that are family members of students or teachers at our school. It was a heart-touching and emotional assembly. Thank you to all our veterans for being our heroes. #SpanishOaksExplorers #BeSomeonesHero
