Welcome to Science 2020-2021

       We are excited to see you all online soon. As we prepare to get ready to learn we all need a few things to do that. Please be sure your student has a productive place to do work and a way to access online learning. If you need help accessing online learning please be sure to contact the district office. 

       The Science teachers suggest each student has the following tools to aid in their learning: pencils, paper, crayons, colored pencils, markers, ruler, glue sticks, scissors, tape, post-it’s, and headphones to help with hands on lessons while online.  

          It is our hope that you have these things already around the house. Please reach out to us if you need help or have any questions. 

          If you need assistance getting the suggested learning materials, please contact our principal, Ms. Quan, at


Thank you,

The Science Teachers

As a team we have compiled a set of "I Can" statements that show what students will be accomplishing in the Science Lab throughout the year.
