Middle School Science/STEM
As their introduction to Saint Joseph School upper grades, our veteran fifth grade Science/STEM teacher, Mrs. Helen Marricco, is there to guide them over the bridge to the middle school years. Mrs. Marricco holds the students to a very high standard and is there as the safety net to support them. She takes the time to teach the students crucial skills, such as note-taking skills, advanced critical thinking, and how to use our Science Laboratory. Mrs. Marricco collaborates with our Math and Technology Teachers on hands-on STEM Projects. In addition, Mrs. Marricco has been true to the Rube Goldberg Science Fair model in which our students work in groups to engineer robots-it truly is a marvel to experience!
