Welcome to Mrs. M's Science Pages

    The periodic table is our cornerstone to understanding science, including biology and chemistry.


    DNA double helix This representation of the beautiful twisted ladder of life hides the secret of your code, which determines your unique characteristics. During second semester, biology students will study deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), the molecule of life and inheritance, which passes traits on from generation to generation. Called the double helix, its origin, ability to replicate itself, and how it can pass on its information is studied.


    Earth Science Students will be our place in the universe studying our place in the universe. We will be looking at the extraordinary place we call Earth, followed by exploring our close planetary neighbors, and finally a much more infinite universe including its birth, progress and modern thought about the future. 


    Lab Fees                                                                                                                                            

    Chemicals and other chemistry supplies are costly. The lab fee for chemistry is $20 for the year.  For Physical Science and for Earth Science the lab fee is $10 for the whole year. Please take care of this as soon as possible if the lab fee has not yet been paid. The bookkeeper accepts this money.


    Textbook Check Out

    Textbooks are not routinely given to students. All students can check them out through the library. They are expensive and cannot be easily replaced. If a checked out textbook is not immediately returned or if the book is damaged while in the care of the student, the student may be billed for the book. Please return all checked out textbooks as soon as possible.
