Class of 2016 in the community
Optimist club volunteers at the Christmas Bureau
This year, CNS seniors that participate in the Optimist Club volunteered at the Christmas Bureau in downtown Syracuse. It was a huge turnout as we teamed up to provide gifts and Christmas necessities for families in need! One student (Clay Scott) say's "volunteering and giving back to the community was a very rewarding experience that changed the way I view life. It was even better that I got to share the experience with my peers."
DECA holds their annual food drive with the local Lyon's Club
Every year the CNS DECA club helps the local Lyon's club with a christmas food drive, and this year was a fantastic turnout! Over 100 families were served with the help of DECA and it was a succesful event. Seeing the smiles on the faces of the families we served made the hours of packing up food worth it. DECA advisor and teacher Mike Lucia commented "it was great to see the kids step it up and work together to feed over 100 families. I saw amazing teamwork and drive within the students. If nothing else, that alone makes this year's class the best in New York State."

Senior Juliana Grasso says "we felt like we had an oppurtuinity to make a difference so we decided to actually do something. It felt great to team up with my team and my classmates to do something good for the world." These girls truly did make a difference and proved the power of what being in the greatest senior class can do for the world.
