Mrs. Maura Grochocinski, Junior High Religion

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  I am looking forward to a unique and successful school year with your child.

A little about myself: due to the difficulty in pronouncing my last name, I am known to the SJF students and to many parents as “Mrs. G.”  I live in Most Holy Redeemer parish and my husband and I have been blessed with three wonderful daughters, a son-in-law, and a new grandson, Martin McGrath Guinane.

This year will be my 21st year teaching at Saint John Fisher. I have taught different grades and various subjects throughout the years. I have enjoyed teaching religion in the Jr. High for the past eleven years, watching my students grow both academically and spiritually.


7th & 8th Grade Religion-Week of Feb. 11th

Posted on Feb 10, 2019

Confirmation was Beautiful!  The students did a wonderful job with their preparation in class as well as their participation in the Confirmation liturgy.  A big thank you to the seventh grade parents and students who hosted the Confirmation celebration afterwards in Kane Hall.  The hall was decorated beautifully and the treats delicious!

This week we will be starting our unit on world religions and will be beginning with Buddhism.  We will be discussing the story of Siddhartha Gautama as well as the beliefs and practices of Buddhists.

***Students should continue to work on their FIVE hours of required service for this second trimester.

This week the students will be writing a reflective narrative of their Confirmation day and will be writing thank you notes to their sponsors which will include a revised and corrected copy of their sponsor essay.
