Special Project

Trout in the Classroom:  Once again, the 7th grade 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.  Check out the aquatic science pictures in our photo gallery on the main page.
