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.

This week, we will be continuing in out textbook Blest Are We.  We will be continue our discussion of the role of the gospel writers, their individual accounts of Jesus' life, and the differences in each of their writing styles.  As we continue our discussion of oral tradition, the students will be required to bring in a story or phrase that has been orally passed down to them from their own family members.

As the leaders of the school, we will begin our school year by preparing for the first all school mass.  We will also be discussing this year's school theme, "Let your Light Shine!" as well as ways we can spread an awareness of our theme to the rest of our SFJ classmates and parish community.
