Aluminum Weekend

October 1, 2007

Monday, Monday, Monday! It’s been a week, and a whole plethora (big word, might want to look it up) of stuff has happened. Classes have been chugging along, you learn something new everyday. I’ve got a little classroom trivia for any of the readers, this one comes from AP Government class. Who was the first president of the United States? a hint is that it’s a trick question. Think about it and then post an answer as an comment. I learn little things like this all the time in class though, interesting little tid bits.

This weekend was more than just your ordinary weekend, it was Alumni weekend. The campus was full of graduates, some even came into the classes. Throughout the weekend there was a Golf scramble match with alumni, alumni soccer games and other events. The new basketball court was dedicated and 8 members were inducted into the brand new Gould Academy Hall of Fame.

Alumni Weekend has always meant one thing to me: BROTHERS! My three older brothers have all graduated from Gould, and they always try to come back to play in the Alumni Soccer Game. The Old Guys pulled off a win this year, but of course this was only due to the excellent footman ship of Chris “Brooksie” Brooks and his stylish soccer jersey. My brothers Patrick and Emmett were able to kick the old futbol around too, sadly Finn couldn’t make it this year, but 3 out of 4 Donovans isn’t bad. All the alumni are gone by now, but we’re all looking forward to the Spring Alumni Weekend, where the most elite and prestigious competition occurs: The Gould Academy Men’s Lacrosse Alumni Game, but that’s half a year away now. That doesn’t mean that we’re not practicing, we had a nice game of pick up yesterday, and all I have to say is that the Old Dogs better look out!

Today at lunch, we’re going to have another meeting of the Gould Academy Community Council. This is a group of students and faculty that meet every week at lunch and talk about any problems around school or events that we want to have or anything at all really! It’s a great way for students to voice any concerns and to get things done around here.

It should be a good week coming up, it’ll be busy though. Ton’s of stuff to do and so little time. Of course, there’s always the question of Mountain Day, but we never know. The propositions are getting a little ridiculous though, I heard somebody on Saturday say that they heard that Mountain Day was tomorrow…as in Sunday…they were kidding…I hope. But that’s all I’ve got for now, I’ll be back next week, so you better be too! but seriously…
