Mrs. Maura Grochocinski, Junior High Religion

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.  We are all looking forward to a 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 of the parents as “Mrs. G.”  I live in Most Holy Redeemer parish and my husband and I have been blessed with three wonderful daughters. 

This year will be my 20th 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 ten years, watching our students grow both academically and spiritually.

I'm looking forward to an exciting school year with our Jr. High students and can't wait to see them on their first day of school, Wednesday, August 21st.

7th & 8th Religion-Week of Nov. 28th

Posted on Nov 29, 2016

***7th Grade Religion***

This week we are beginning Chapter 5 in our Blest Are We.  This chapter discusses the Kingdom of God.  We will be discussing the meaning, the growth, and the value of creating the Kingdom of God here on earth. This chapter focuses on our responsibility to reach out to all people, especially to those who are less fortunate than we and show them love, compassion, and mercy.  We will also be discussing the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.

***8th Grade Religion***

This week we will be finishing chapter 7 in our Morality book.  This chapter discusses the importance of family life.  We will be discussing the values and virtues learned at home and how we carry those with us as we go out into society and become a part of a larger community.  The chapter 7 test will be Thursday.
