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 May 17th

Posted on May 16, 2021

We are closing in on the end of the third trimester for our 7th and 8th grade students. It is so very important that our Jr. High students remain motivated to finish strong with both their academics and behavior.  This Tuesday, we will be taking the I-Ready Math assessment to assess each student's individual growth in the current school year.

We are all looking forward to celebrating our 2021 graduates at their Ribbon Mass, the Just Desserts celebration, and of course, at the Graduation Liturgy.


  • All 8th grade students are to return the required graduation fee to their homeroom teachers. 
  • Rainbow cone orders along with the payment may also be returned to homeroom teachers.
