Swimming, by Ashtyn Lara
Many go to watch
Many go to simply compete
Some go there for morning workout
And that’s exactly what I do
Beautiful, vibrant blue water
Elegant glides of strokes
My heart is pounding
My legs are violently kicking
My arms are flinging through the air with every stroke
Coach Waldman dancing to music while chanting us on!
1-2-3 breathe, 1-2-3 breathe, 1-2-3 breathe
My eyes are locked on the end of the pool
Soon after my eyes are ruby red filled with chlorine
My hair looks like a rats nest!
But even though I look like a rag doll that’s been thrown around,
Swimming is what I live for!!

Who’s school got all the rhymes
Dedicated and strong
And sometimes long
And making even better climbs
Math, by Arlette Marquez
My favorite subject may not be the best
But it’s necessary to pass the test
Take a lucky guess
To you it may be a stress
You may use it to see how long you can last underwater without drowning
But it has to do with counting
What is it?
The Answer: Math
Lights…Camera….Action…, by Zoe Morgan
theatre is easy for most people who take it.
because all you really have to do is fake it.
but if the lights and the audience sting.
center stage just may not be your thing.
but it’s ok because we will find your place .
maybe up in the sound booth there’s an empty space.
it’s perfect for you it fits you like a shoe.
don’t worry it will be great all you have to do is just be you.
Journalism, by Clara Reyes
Out of every class I have,
My most favorite of them all
Would definitely be Journalism
The photography, the editing, the writing,
The activities, the new classmates, and
Most importantly, the creative side of
Each and everyone’s mind. From pictures
To pages from articles to fun assignments
And lastly, from classmates to their imagination.
With new ideas and opinions,
We could create the best yearbook that has ever been made!
A Poem to History, by Jenyfer Argumendo
Once the world was the way it is,
But then came many battles and hardships.
This is why we take so many quizzes
With many tips,
Like on the battle of Lexington and Concord,
Which are known as the shots heard around the world
The battle of Saratoga
Which was the turning point in the Revolutionary War.
It didn’t help that there was a WW11
In which we lost many lives than before
But the past is behind us
At least this is a society filled with trust?
Theater, by Bronwyn Saldana
Oh, theater. Oh, theater.
The class full of booming and crashing energy from the students and teachers alike.
Creating and performing worlds only those found in our dreams and fantasies
Critters and beings are given life from the actors.
Whilst the surroundings and story are formed from those behind the lights.
Sweat beads drip off of our bodies, warm blood paints the cold floor, and tears run down our cheeks, yet it’s all a sweet victory in the end.
Oh, theater. Oh, odd theater
