Discovery Education Science Techbook will be used in grades 5-8.  Each student will have a consumable workbook to engage in science topics.  We are excited to have class full time back in the STEAM room.  Thank you to all the donors, parents, and board for making this room a dream come true.

Special Projects

Trout in the Classroom

Once again, we will be raising trout from the Pequest Hatchery.  The project would not exist without the support of the Freehold Soil Conservation District and Trout Unlimited.  Through a grant from FSCD, Saint Jerome has been supplied with equipment.  Trout Unlimited has also visited the school in the past with educational programs.  The students will be taking an active role in caring for the development of the fish.  The students will feed the fish, help clean the tank, and perform water quality testing.

September 2022:  Set up tank  

October 2022:       Rainbow trout eggs arrive

May 2023:              Release of trout into the Manasquan River


Students participate in CoderZ. This year the students will continue to use the program and work their way through missions.  I utilize to engage students in many different coding activites from Star Wars to creating their own shield design.
