I am so impressed with the knowledge that Mrs. Quirk's homeroom had on Norman Borlaug and the green revolution. Students were able to speak on genetics, cross breeding, and how he was able to help countries around the world fight off famine. I'm super impressed that everyone also found someone to dress alike with during today's Red Ribbon Dress up day. Saying no to Drugs Together.
