JME Science LAB

Welcome to the Julius Marks Elementary Science Lab website!

Here you will be able to find links to help support both students and parents in the amazing world of science. I hope to inspire students to notice the science all around them, ask questions, take risks, and never give up!

Please take a few minutes to browse this site and take note of all the resources available.

If you have any questions please email Mrs. Barrentine at

Meet Mrs. Barrentine

I am so fortunate to be the science lab teacher at JME...I have my dream job! Growing up in West Virginia, I was always outside exploring, playing, and getting dirty. Fishing, camping, and hiking are my favorite past times. Currently I am working to improve my photography skills by taking online courses and applying what I've learned with lots of practice. It is so much fun capturing nature and it's amazing beauty. Something else I LOVE to capture is EMOTION, as seen in many of the photos and videos posted on this site.

My husband Dave and I have 4 children and 1 grandchild. I taught first grade for 11 years and this will be my fourth year teaching in the lab.
