• Green School Initiatives

    -Welcome to Science Lab where science is fun, yet understood as a very important component of our everyday lives.  Science matters because understanding science all around us enriches our compassion for our plants, animals, our planet Earth, and mother nature. It's intriguiing and sometimes magical.  We love learning about Florida's native plants and animals and our environment.  We love exploring, asking questions, investigating, and asking more questions to learn everything we can about the world we live in.  We are working hard to learn more everyday to reduce, recycle, and reuse as we become a GREEN School.  

    If you would like to be involved with our Green School effort, please contact Mrs. Florio at 772-219-1610 ext. 179 or floriom@martin.k12.fl.us.
