McCoy Poetry


by Cassie Davies, age 9

Tiger, tiger, hear me roar

Through the forest I shall soar

Over the rocks on the ground

My feet and my heart both will pound

Breathing heavy all the way

As I look at my prey

I have it in my sight

And I run with all my might

As I run in the light

My coat of fur shines so bright

Through the trees I see my dinner

I will get it because I'm a winner.


by Stacy Wikins, age 8

Lolly-pop lolly-pop on a stick,

I want to eat you with a lick,

lick,lick. You look so good,

You look so fine. Lolly-pop

Lolly-pop I wish you were mine.

"How I helped my Grandma"

by Brittany Wangenheim

I'm going to tell you how I helped my Grandma. I spent the night at my Grandma's house and we went shopping. The next day my Grandma couldn't reach down to get the soap, so I got it for her. We went home and I helped her put up the groceries and she made me lunch. My Grandma went into the living room and fell asleep. I went in there and started watching TV. Later that day we went to Alco, a store, and she got a t-shirt for me. The next day we went shopping again but my Grandma didn't feel good so we went back home and I made her soup. She took a little rest and I helped her with the laundry and the dishes. So, that's how I helped my Grandma.

The Price They Paid

submitted by Don Greenwood

Have you ever wondered what happened to the men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Five signers were captured by the British as traitors. At least a dozen of the fifty-six had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the Continental Army. Another had two sons captured. Several took part in various battles of the American Revolution, and many suffered wounds or physical hardships.

Believing (Excerpts from the story)

by Cheryl Trujillo

The world is constantly asking us to believe in things that logic says is impossible. We want to believe that there will someday be an end to hate, or that someone will find a way to stop violence; we want to believe that bad things won't happen, but we aren't given any guarantees. Of course, there are times that I get discouraged and my faith starts to falter, but I remind myself that certain things are certainly worth believing in. It only takes a tiny leap of faith to try, but if you don't you'll never know if you will win or fail.

AHS Alumni Baseball Game

by Ryan Lane

Saturday April 13, 2013 at 11AM the first annual Aztec High School Alumni Baseball Game is scheduled to take place at the AHS varsity baseball field at Koogler Middle School. The AHS varsity baseball team will play a team compromised of AHS baseball alumnus graduating classes. While it may seem strange (and merciless) that the AHS varsity team would bother playing a bunch of "old fogies," the purpose of the alumni baseball game is a worthy one.
