"See the opportunities you're given and make the most out of them."
"Take advantage of the help teachers are giving to you."
Each year, at the beginning of the third trimester, CRNYHS seniors have the opportunity to share advice and guidance with the underclassmen with for their future years at CRNYHS. On the days in which our freshman and sophomores head out to their CWSP internships, a few seniors meet them in the morning addressing them with a power-point presentation about their own experiences at CRNYHS. While creating these presentations, our seniors have a chance to look back over the past 4 years and reflect on their growth, maturity, hard work and their successes. In doing so, not only do the seniors come with motivating advice for their younger classmates but their inspiring discussions show how much they also want to see continuous success for their Cristo Rey family.
Last week, our students, faculty and staff celebrated their Cristo Rey spirit all week long. Each day was centered on a different theme and lunch time activity organized by full time volunteer Mark Pustejovsky. Highlights of the week included a heated student versus staff basketball game, twin day and the second annual 'Pie a Volunteer!' What a fun Cristo Rey week!
