Transcript of Glandular High School Yearbook

Hello! I am the reason for your ability to function properly, considering the fact that I am a section of the brain. At Glandular High School I am partly responsible for hormone production. Without me body temperature, sleep, moods, sex drive and the release of other hormones in the body would be all out of place. My three best friends are behavioral, autonomic, and endocrine functions. Although I am smaller than my other classmates, I am depended on by my best friends. My greatest achievement is the releasing of my hormones: thyrotropin, gonadotropin, growth hormone, corticotrophin, somatostatin and dopamine hormone release. My favorite word is capillaries because it is a big part of the pituitary gland where the effects are then exerted. That's all there is to know about me! If you want to know more you can find me in the brain!
Adrenal glands
Hello students of Glandular High School! You may already know me considering I'm very popular. You can find me on top of the kidneys which is pretty exclusive at the Glandular school. People come to me to relieve stress. I am best known for secreting the hormone adrenaline, which prepares the body to spring into action in a stressful situation. You might be surprised that I am made up of two distinct parts: the adrenal cortex and the adrenal medulla. One being the outer part of the gland and one being the inner part. Hormones are my best friend, but they are very difficult to function with. My greatest achievement is producing 30-40 mg of cortisone acetate per day under normal unstressed conditions. My favorite quote is: "I am the reliever of stress" -Me
Hello to the kids that are just hitting puberty at Endocrine High School! I am here to help you! You should start to know a little more about me and how I function. You might be surprised that I am only active until puberty. If you are curious as to where I am located, you can find me behind the sternum between the lungs, You mights be surprised to know that I slowly start to shrink after puberty and become replaced with fat. I am depended on by many girls and boys and have a big responsibility when I am active. I am most likely protecting the body against autoimmunity. I am special in that I am the largest in children. My favorite song is "Don't Stop Believing" because many kids believe they won't reach puberty, but it will soon come!
Hey there! I am the Thyroid gland and you can find me in your throat. If you want to talk, see me below the thyroid cartilage building. You might be surprised to know that I am one of the largest endocrine glands and consist of two connective lobes. Without me, you would not have the ability to make protein, control how sensitive the body is the other hormones. This controls the growth and rate of functions of many other system in the body. My favorite word is calcitonin because I produce this, playing a role in calcium homeostasis. "I love maintaining body weights", is my favorite quote because I help control body weight which is very important to looking hot in high school. I am beautiful like a butterfly. I believe I am thin because I am surrounded by a thin fibrous sheath, the capsula glandulae thyreoideae. That's all you should know about me! Thanks for reading!

Hey there! Just a shout out to all my homies at Glandular High! As all of you know, my name is Testes, but some of you guys call me Testicles. I am a pair of ovoid glandular organs that are central to the function of the male reproductive system. I am responsible for producing sperm cells and the male sex hormone testosterone. You might be surprised to know that I produce 12 trillion sperm in a male’s lifetime, and about 400 million during each ejaculation. You won’t be surprised to know, because you already know, that all the ladies love me. If you ever wanna kick it, just hit me up and meet me in the hollow sac of the scrotum. One thing I can’t live without is my crew, the vital organs of the ventral body cavity. We all have a deep connection. We are actually connected via the spermatic cords. My greatest achievement is my built in thermostat that I use to keep myself and my sperm at the correct temperature. My favorite song is hot and cold by Katy Perry because I can really relate. I’m always getting hot and cold, and I have to contract and expand depending on the temperature. One word that sums me up is hard working, because I produce sperm from the onset of puberty until death.
Testes (Testicles)
Hello my fellow peers at Glandular High! My name is Pancreas. I play an essential role in converting food into fuel for the body’s cells. If you want to come study together, you can find me in the abdomen (behind the stomach and surrounded by my bffs, the small intestine, liver, and spleen). You might be surprised to know that I have two main functions: an exocrine function that helps in digestion and an endocrine function that helps in regulating blood sugar. I take my work very seriously. I think I am beautiful; I am six inches long and shaped like a flat pear. Don’t be too jealous though, its what’s on the inside that truly matters. One thing I can’t live without is my islet cells that create and release important hormones directly into the bloodstream. My greatest achievements are my two hormones that I create called Insulin, which lowers blood sugar, and Glucagon, which raises blood sugar. My favorite song is “Suga how you get so fly”, because I maintain proper blood sugar levels which is crucial to the functioning of key organs such as the kidney, liver, and brain. I am a truly hard working student and I am most likely to balance your blood sugar and keep you alive.
