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 January 28th

Posted on Jan 26, 2019

Thank you to all who attended our Catholic Schools Week liturgy and open house this past Sunday.  We have a fun-filled week planned with many activities to help celebrate Catholic Schools week at SJF.

***7th Grade Religion***

This week we will be continuing on with Chapter 8 in Blest Are We which discusses the Beatitudes and the Lord's prayer. Students will be working on an assignment that will require them to define each of the Beatitudes in their own words and discuss those people in their lives who best demonstrate the Beatitudes.

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


***8th Grade Religion***

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