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 April 12th

Posted on Apr 12, 2021

I hope everyone enjoyed their spring break and found the time to both enjoy fun activities as well as relax and unwind. The next six weeks will prove to be a very busy time for our eighth graders, filled with memorable events such as May Crowning, Ribbon Mass, Just Desserts and Graduation. Although we are all excited about these events, it is important that our Jr. High students remain engaged and motivated to give their greatest efforts until the end of the school year.  

 

***7th Grade Religion***

This week we will begin our unit on Judaism. We will start with early Jewish history, reading the stories of Abraham and Moses and the impact their lives have had on Judaism.

***All students should continue to work on their FIVE hours of required service for this third trimester.

***8th Grade Religion***

This week we will be continuing on with our unit "With Understanding, Comes Acceptance."  The students will be presenting their Google slide projects to their classmates, informing them on the topics they researched.

***All students should continue to work on their EIGHT hours of required service for this third trimester.
