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.

Posted on Oct 25, 2020

On Tuesday, October 27th, Father Tom McCarthy will be visiting SJF and will be meeting with our 8th grade students discussing topics such as faith, leadership, and the many challenges facing teenagers in today's society.

Friday, October 30th, the Jr. High students may dress down and wear orange and black in celebration of Halloween.  Unfortunately, because of COVID safety measures, the students may not bring in candy or treats to share with their classmates.
