We are the fifth grade of the Solomon Schechter Academy of Ocean and Monmouth counties in Howell, New Jersey. We have five students in our fifth grade. We are a fun class. We have great teachers who have a lot of knowledge. We all love being at school. We all enjoy watching TV, playing sprts, making arts and crafts and playing video games. We play a lot of unique sports such a BBK which is a combination of basketball, baseball and kickball.
Our school has a student council that helps put together successful fund raisers which has helped us get money for our school so we can go on trips and participate in activities within the school.
Our school does many things in the community. After 9/11 our school planted a tree at our school in memory of the people who died on that day. We go to nursing homes and sing to the residents. We also participate in our Federation’s Mitzvah Day which involves many different community activities such as cleaning up an area like a river bed and planting flowers at Twenty One Plus, a resident home for developmentally impaired adults.
