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 Oct. 13th

Posted on Oct 12, 2020

 

I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather this past weekend...I sure did!  This long weekend was a great opportunity to take a break and recharge; allowing us all to continue the second half of this first trimester with our best efforts. Academic progress check for our students is this Wednesday, October 14th. Please log on to Power School and check your child's academic progress in each class. This is an opportune time to praise students' who are showing great efforts and accomplishments as well as good time to encourage those student's who may need to increase their efforts and work to their full academic ability. 

***7th Grade Religion***

This week we will be reviewing the important concepts of chapter two in our Blest Are We book which focuses on the Seven Sacraments and the Baptism of Jesus. We will be completing review exercises/study guides and will be correcting and reviewing on Thursday, preparing for the chapter two test which is scheduled for Friday, October 16th.

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

***8th Grade Religion***

This week we will be reviewing chapter 3 in our Church History book which focused on the growth of Christianity in the 4th century due to the support of the emperors Constantine and Theodocius.  We will also be reviewing the subject and outcomes of each of the four Ecumenical Councils.  The chapter 3 test is scheduled for Friday, October 16th.

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