About Mr. Paul Bollard...
Our Principal since 2010
Welcome to Payne Junior High School. I am honored to serve the Panther community and excited about the possibilities that lie before us. We have the potential to create an environment at Payne that is a model for all to strive for. Potential, however, is only reached when there is desire and commitment. We must all work together with a common goal to turn potential into achievement, and this can only be done through teamwork and collaboration!
To introduce myself, I am married to my beautiful wife, Sherry, who also works for CUSD. We have two wonderful children, Amanda and Andrew, and a son-in law, Ben. Amanda and Ben have blessed us with two awesome grandchildren, Harper and Henry, who have me wrapped around their finger. I enjoy, camping, gardening and golf in my spare time. I grew up in a small town in northwest Iowa, Pocahontas, but have lived in the Valley for more than 30 years.
My expectations for all Payne students are that they treat one another with respect; come to school every day; complete assignments in a way that reflects positively on them, their families and the community; and, that they have fun and be involved.
I look forward to meeting all of you, getting to know you, and helping to create an environment at PJHS that allows all to explore, create and become the best students they can be.
