Parkour is the art of moving as efficiently as possible from point A to point B. This summer, some friends and I spent hours practic-ing parkour tricks such as back-flipping off vertical walls.-Ali Imani (11)

I was an intern for the develop-

ment team of the website study-, which helps high school

kids with writing analysis and

writing in general. It was a very

enjoyable first work experience!

-Kevin Toy (11)

I participated in the Biomedical branch of the COSMOS program

at UC. Davis. I participated in vari-ous activities, and I even had the opportunity to observe an actual

surgery in the veterinary hospital!- Alice Liu (12)

In Coalinga, CA, it’s blazing hot,

and there isn’t much to do. But

if you keep an open mind, you’re

sure to have crazy stories to

share with friends.

- Monique Beaudouin (12)

This summer I spent a week in

Mexico on a mission trip with the

CasaBuilders program. Several

church youth groups worked

together to help construct an or-

phanage in the Tijuana area.

-Jack Guan (12)

Over the summer, my

friends and I volunteered

at Bayside Middle School,

which is where we gradu-

ated from. We helped out in

any way we could (in the of-

fice, in the classrooms, etc.)

and we even earned silver

sword points! It was

so much fun!

-Jade Barkett (9)

I helped out at a camp called Summer Soul Surf Camp as a counselor in training (CIT). Our days consisted mostly of surfing on San Onofre Surf Beach and getting acquainted with other surfers. The style of the camp is super chill and everyone acts like family. It's so fun getting bit by the surfing bug!-Sharon Borden (10)

GO DONS The 80 days of summer flew

by quickly for Aragon stu-

dents. Many traveled afar

to pursue their interests

while others took advantage

of local activities. No matter

where they went, the Dons

encountered remarkable

opportunities and brought

back exciting stories of

their summer.

I work at Aaron Brothers, where I am a certified junior Framer. As an artist, I love

working there because peo-ple bring their best artwork

to be framed. I feel honored that they trust me with their precious photos and paintings.-Sarah Manning (11)

I went to Lhasa, Tibet and

spent three days at an or-

phanage teaching English

and playing games with

children through a program

called ARCC (Adventures

Cross Country). The or-

phans, who were happy

despite their hardships,

really inspired me.

-Jacob Rennert (12)

My family went to Australia, where

we visited the Sydney Opera

House and took a tour of the Blue

Mountains. We flew to Cairns

where we swam in the breathtak-

ing Great Barrier Reef and glided

across the rainforest in a skyrail.

-Elizabeth McSheery (10)

In Spain, I stayed at the Hotel Arts Barce-lona, the best 5 star hotel I've ever been to. I took Spanish guitar & Flamenco lessons.

I visited family in Bos-ton and some friends

in Kansas. I then took a family trip to Shanghai, China to see the World

Expo. Finally, I traveled to Malibu with my friend Katherine Pavicic, and we stayed there for a couple of weeks

Riding: the art of keeping

a horse between you and the ground.-Kore Chan (11)
