San Bruno fire initiates activism

San Bruno

On September 9, a gas explosion in a San Bruno neighborhood set off a fire that killed eight people, destroyed 35 homes and drastically affected many unfortunate residents in need. A few days later, Aragon students stepped up to the cause by collecting change in water jars in order to aid the victims with an effort organized by Leadership under the slogan, “Give Up to Give Back.”


Dons dance the Knights away


The leadership posters that decorate hallways, numerous lunch rallies, and spirit days can only mean one thing: homecoming is right around the corner. This historic game against our rival, Hillsdale High School, followed by the homecoming dance has always been an exciting time of year. Year to year, our preparations mostly stay the same. Yet just down the road, our rivals have their own way of preparing for this highly anticipated event.


Teaching ’round the clock


As the final bell for seventh period rings, sophomore students in Holly Dietz’s English class run up to the whiteboard to write their name down on the “help” list. Like most of the students at school, they want a good grade on their essay and can use all the help they can get. Like Dietz, many Aragon teachers stay after school and take time out of their own life to help students.
