Hello!!! Thank you for visiting my science webpage. I eat, sleep and breathe SCIENCE, and I will realate every single thing that happens in our class to a specific scientific theory. I began my teaching career in 2005 teaching 6th and 8th grade science. Since then, I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade science, CP Biology I, Honors Biology I, and Honors Anatomy and Physiology. Throught my years, I have taught, and still teach, a variety of branches of science including Biology, Genetics, Life Science, Geology, Chemistry, Ecology, Physics, Earth Science, Meteorology, Astronomy, Physicial Science, Human Anatomy and Physiology, and Botany.


My website has lots of information for students and parents. You will find my class syllabi, class schedule times, topics covered in each class, state standards for each class, helpful internet links that we use in class, projects and tests as they come throughtout the year. To access the information, click on the class under the home page. 


If you have any questions or comments, please let me know. I reply to all emails timely and can be reached at cferrugia@lexrich5.org. The direct number to my classroom is (803) 575-5333. It will not ring during school hours, but you will be able to leave me a voicemail. If you need to reach me immediately, please call the front office at 803-575-5300, and they can transfer you. I also use Google Classroom. Each student has a class code which they use to log-in to the site. Parents can be a part of Google Classroom as well. The codes for the classes are below:
