Middle School Science

Welcome to  science!

I look forward to the new school year and new opportunities to learn more about science! This is my Fifth year teaching science to students in third through eighth grade at Holy Family.  I hope to encourage in my students  a love and excitement for learning about the wonders of God’s creation while we learn about physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, and the environment.

This page is designed to keep you updated what we are doing in the science classroom. Homework assignments, vocabulary lists, and links to the Quizlet study guides can be found here.

If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact me at science@holyfamilydalecity.org
