Ms. Barrett

Welcome to Physical Science!  

As we begin our first 9 week grading period, I am excited to be on a journey with my students this year.  I have the great and good fortune to have Science students that are engaged and questioning their world around them.

This first grading period will be one in which students review basic science lab safety rules and the scientific method. We will then visit properties of matter, study acids/bases, solutions.  The last unit will be Atomic Theory.

As always, units will be introduced with emphasis on vocabulary mastery, followed by content, enriched with labs and activities, reinforced with homework assignments, and assessed through quizzes and tests

My expectations of students are the same as always, 100% participation daily with an accuracy rate of 85%.

I encourage my students to read, read, read, all they can about the world around them. Don't just Google information, students are encouraged to go out and experience the science in the world in which they live.


If you need to reach me, you can always send a note with your student, email me at, or by calling 853-2251 .
