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.

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

Posted on Aug 20, 2017

Welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year.  I will be teaching seventh and eighth grade religion this year and am looking forward to reuniting with our eighth grade students as well as meeting and getting acquainted with our seventh grade students.  The teachers in the Jr. High are committed to creating and fostering a positive learning environment in which we hope to see each of our students grow both spiritually and academically.
We are very excited about introducing the enhancements we have made to the Jr. High curriculum, as well as the introduction of the chrome books to our every day curriculum.  We will be meeting with the 7th and 8th grade students on the first day of school and will be discussing the behavioral and academic expectations of the Junior High students and directives regarding use and care of the chrome books.  On my blog post, under Parent Information, you will find valuable information in the parent letters which outline the curriculum and expectations of the students in my 7th and 8th grade religion classes.
Effective communication is a very important component of your child's academic and personal success here at St. John Fisher. Please feel free to contact me or any of the other Jr. High teachers with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the school year. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year with your son/daughter and am also looking forward to meeting the parents of our Jr. High students at our Open House on Wednesday, August 30th, at 6:30 PM.
