So, here we go, Glogamaniacs! My top ELEVEN list of…hmmm, let’s see…

Oh yeah. I don’t actually have a list in mind. Top independent studies I’ve hear about? (welding, ballet, live organ transplants…) Top Gould Academy student band names?

3. D-Block (shout out to the boys there)

2. Mountain Day!

1. Free dot!!

I promise, no lists next week. Unless another list is in order.

I leave you with a photo of a great man- Mr Kipp Greene! Today is his birthday- We in the Glog world wish you the happiest of birthdays!!!115_2044
