Payson High school has a long legacy of championships. Payson High School has been feared since its founding in 1912. Over the years, Payson High has been recognized as champions in almost every sport. However, in recent years, the state trophies have had need to be restored. In 2012, PHS Mission: Restore the Pride, began. The mission was to restore 14 state champion and state runner up trophies. Now, in December of 2014, all 14 trophies have been returned to their rightful place—the halls of PHS.

Cherry Creek’s new mission statement this year is: “We Lead. We Learn. We inspire. I am Important.” 

As the 2014-2015 school year began, there was something different about Cherry Creek Elementary. When people entered the building, they could see a physical difference in the hallways as well as a change in the atmosphere of the school.  It was the beginning of a new adventure for the Crocs, their first year as a Leader in Me school.

Westside Students Donate to Community In Action


In December, the Westside Elementary student council members, along with Principal Sara Matis, presented a check for over $3,000.00 to Dave Smith with Community in Action.  During an entire week, student council members counted pennies and change that students brought for the annual Penny Wars.  This money will go toward feeding families in need in the area.  This is the second year in a row that Westside students raised over $3,000.00.  The Penny Wars have become a worthwhile tradition at Westside. Congratulations for empowering others and “Being the Magic”.

Band Beyond 5 Encourages Students to "Never Give Up!"

During the afternoon of December 16, 2014 shrieks and screams could be heard emanating from the south end of Wilson Elementary School.  The usually quiet hallways were abuzz with excitement as the up-and-coming boy band Beyond 5 put on an assembly encouraging students to Never Give up (a title of one of their popular songs). Students were also reminded to be careful of what they say to one another. Even a joke can be hurtful to others.
