More than just an object


“Most of them are from people and places,” says freshman Emma Mamis as she held up a collection of bracelets on her wrist. “This one is from a little town in Spain,” she said, pointing to a bracelet given to her by her friend. “And this one says ‘dance’ on it because I like to dance,” she says, pointing to another. We all have that certain object we have a strong sentimental attachment to, whether it be a teddy bear, a baby blanket, a trophy, or even something completely unexpected. Many Aragon students have objects like these that they consider to an irreplaceable part of their lives and are willing to share.


A dive into opportunity: scholarships at Aragon


Though scholarships provide great financial opportunities, they can often act as an emotional process for students as they put their full efforts into their applications. However, many of the students at Aragon do not even know about the broad range of scholarships offered to Aragon students. Whether based on academics or creative arts, scholarships that apply to different activities exist by the dozens.


California Proposition 19: A law the state should accept

We see it everywhere: plastered on bus stations, on buttons and bumper stickers, even in the reddened, bleary eyes of the occasional student. We hear it whispered about among the halls and joked about during passing period. Marijuana has always infiltrated our communities, although some might try to deny it. However, after years of battling a slew of failed marijuana policies, California has placed the long overdue Proposition 19 on the November ballot.


The docile side of competition: how competition can actually be good for us


As the sun beats down on him and his feet pound against the ground, sophomore Jared Dilibero sees two people coming up from behind. They are also drenched in sweat and wearing Aragon track uniforms. Even though they are his teammates and not his opponents, Dilibero’s competitive drive kicks in and he sprints to the finish line. The friendly competition between him and his friends gives him the extra strength needed to excel during the race.


Unique student sports

Unique sports

We are a school of athletes. In the halls, sports bags are as abundant as silly bands. Dribbling a soccer ball, shooting a free throw, swimming a fifty meter race, or smashing a volley ball comes second nature to many of the students who strut through the Aragon halls. But while running non-stop for ten miles or sinking a half-court shot is impressive, they are not as surprising as seeing a boy casually back-flipping over the pavement.


Spotlight on campus aides


Students see them in the parking lot before school directing traffic. During passing period, they may be seen helping the occasional injured student to class. For the lunch period, they are out in the halls, watchful of general activity. These individuals are the campus aides here at Aragon High School. Almost everyone has observed or interacted with them at one point or another, but few are familiar with who they are or what they do on a day to day basis.


Volleyball team’s hard work rewarded by victories


With an all new Freshman team coached by Aragon graduate Kelsey Stiles, and a promising Varsity and JV team with a series of victories under their belts, volleyball is the sport to watch this season. While volleyball may not be the most known sport at Aragon it certainly has the attention of the world. It is the seventh most popular sport in the world it also enjoys the title of the national sport of Sri Lanka.


Endurance: Aragon students participate in Portland to Coast Relay


The Portland to Coast Relay, an annual 127-mile-long relay event, takes a considerable amount of perseverance and determination. The race starts in downtown Portland where the runners run west and cross the beautiful rural lands of Oregon, eventually finishing at the coastal city of Seaside, Oregon. Eight runners from the Aragon cross country team drove for ten hours, participated in this long race and finished with third place.
