This month, Mr. Russ Owens is retiring after 43 years of teaching and inspiring young musicians. He has absolutely loved his career and describes the students as respectful as they were years ago. Traveling with the different ensembles to places such as San Francisco, New Orleans, and the Bahamas are some of his favorite memories.
His plans for the future? Definitely spending more time with his family and finding every opportunity to play that trumpet. Please join us in wishing Russ Owens a harmonious retirement. Thank you for the many, many years of incredible music.

Social Studies Teacher Mr. Michael Gromek will be retiring at the end of the school year after 33 years of service. He credits his own AP American teacher in high school for creating the strong interest in a teaching career. At that time, he could not have predicted the deep friendships he would develop among the faculty or the exciting changes in classroom learning as technology began to influence pedagogy. Outside of the classroom, Mr. Gromek coached within the hockey, baseball, and bowling programs.
Please join us in congratulating Michael Gromek, thanking him for his unwavering care of our students, and wishing him well #retirement

Mr. Martin Fedchak was hired in 1984 and has spent the last 32 years teaching Economics, Accounting, and Business courses - and giving his friend, Mr. Ted Lina, a hard time every chance he could get.
In 1986, Mr. Fedchak jumped at the opportunity to assist with the St. Joe’s Food Basket campaign, eventually taking the faculty leadership role. Today, this initiative continues to involve and inspire our entire school community while providing meals for needy families in WNY.
Outside of the classroom, he also spent years coaching hockey and serving as an advisor to the senior class.
Martin Fedchak will be retiring at the close of the school year, and looks forward to spending more time with his grandchildren. Congratulations and thank you for your years of service to the young men of St. Joe’s.
