There are four options if you are interested in taking an Ag class. You can choose from Intro to Agriculture, Animal Science, Advanced Animal Science, and Horticulture. Mr. Burns teaches all four classes, he is new to Twin Lakes this year. Mr. Burns is from Carroll County, Indiana, then later moved to Oklahoma to attend Oklahoma State University. You should join agriculture classes because it is a fun way to learn, there are so many opportunities.

This is the FFA field that the members of FFA take care of. They learn more about crops, soil, how to properly care for, and harvest a field.

Reece Howard said, β€œIt is a fun class because we debate a lot of different topics and Mr. Burns is fun to go back and forth with.” Another ag student, Ross Howard, said β€œI like ag classes because it is a good break from the required classes.” Any grade level can take an ag class, but some classes are only offered for certain grades. Mr. Burns said “I would love to have some fun, new students next school year!” Agribusiness will be replacing horticulture for the next few years, be one of the first students at Twin Lakes to take the class next school year!
