Welcome to the Science Home Page!

My name is Ms. Catano and it is my second year here at St. Juliana School. I cannot tell you what a wonderful year it was and what an exciting year it is going to be! A big, big, big thank you to all of our amazing school families for choosing Saint Juliana and the incredible young people I have the opportunity to educate.

Our science program here at St. Juliana is utilizing the Beckman Science Program. Thanks to the hard work of many, through grant writing, Beckman supported St. Juliana and so began a science program that uses inquiry and hands on learning as its core values. We are also starting to incorporate Next Generation Science Standards into the curriculum. It will be a slow shift into an even more student centered learning experience. The Beckman Program has laid a wonderful foundation for student discovery and an arsenal of resources which will lend itself beautifully to the Next Generation Science Standards.

* Note new this year to see assignments for your students, as well as, important documents that may be posted please scroll to the bottom of my home page (Science) and select your child's grade level.  This is new and different from last year; please email me if you have any issues.  I will also be walking all students through the process the first week of science class.  You can also access this page from your student's homeroom teacher; it is located at the very bottom of the page. Please check out grade pages for updates, study guides, and links to current curriculum reinforcement!
