FAMILY CONNECTION | March 11, 2021
Roman Graiff '21 competes tomorrow, March 12, in Kansas City in the 182-pound division, the first Vianney wrestler at state in nine years.
Mission Week
Students donated more than 12,000 diapers and almost 400 packs of baby wipes for ThriVe St. Louis this week. This is in addition to the $4,000 our National Honor Society collected this winter for Birthright STL.

Mission Week concludes tomorrow, March 12, with students who donate $10 or more to Griffin Fund allowed to wear their Griffins Give t-shirts at school. The class with the highest participation rate this week wins a Chick-fil-A lunch to enjoy after Spring Break.
Spring Break
