Payson PHS graduates at Payson Elementary School PES

Payson High School seniors walked the halls where many started their K - 12 education career - Payson Elementary School. The graduates received their diplomas on May 24.

Payson High School graduates donned their caps and gowns – not for graduation – but for high fives and good vibes.

It’s a district tradition for graduating seniors to a walk down the hallways of both elementary schools the week before graduation.

For many seniors it’s one last tour of the halls they walked during their time as a Payson Unified School District student.

For the younger students it’s a glimpse of their future.

For many teachers, it’s a chance to give one last hug to students who touched their hearts.
