Welcome to Science 2018-2019

Quail Run Families ~

It is our pleasure to welcome you and your child to the science lab program at Quail Run Elementary School. 

Science is a very important academic experience for all students.  The Science Labs at Quail Run foster the love of learning, encourages curiosity, celebrates taking risks, emphasizes inquiry and introduces engineering design.   It is our goal as the science teachers to create a positive learning environment in which all students feel welcome, comfortable, confident and successful.  In order to attain this goal we strive to meet each student’s individual needs.  We will be working closely with your child’s regular classroom teacher by using interactive notebooks and focusing on the Engineering Design Standards from the NGSS in the science lab. We believe in setting high, but attainable, expectations for every student in order to establish student confidence in their own ability to achieve academically in science.  

We are very excited to be a part of your students' science experience this year!
