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 Religion-Week of October 17th

Posted on Oct 17, 2016

On Tuesday of this week, the Jr. High will be attending a retreat at St. Rita High School.  Over the years, students have benefited from this experience as they work with Father Tom McCarthy and groups of peer leaders on leadership and value formation.  Students are to wear their school uniforms and bring a brown bag lunch with a beverage.

***7th Grade Religion***

This week, we will be working on comprehension and review questions for chapter 3 in Blest Are We and will be taking the chapter 3 test this Friday.  In addition to the material in chapter three, students should also know the four cardinal virtues and their demonstration in our society today.  In order to prepare for this test, students should review their corrected study guide and all class notes.

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

***8th Grade Religion***

This week, we will begin chapter 4 in our Church History book.  This chapter discusses the evangelization of Christianity throughout Europe. The chapter 3 test taken last Friday, will be returned to the students on Wednesday of this week.

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