Mrs. Forret's class celebrated DNA Day yesterday. DNA Day is celebrated because of the importance of identifying the shape of DNA back in 1953 and also for the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003. These students have been learning all year long about the vital role DNA plays in so many parts of their lives. They might all have different DNA in their cells, but they all have Warrior blood running through their veins!
