One hundred thirty students from the North Syracuse Central School District participated in a Bowl-a-thon at the Strike and Spare Bowling Lanes in Mattydale to raise funds for Dollars for Scholars scholarships. The students raised approximately $4,000. The funds raised will enable the North Syracuse Dollars for Scholars to give at least eight scholarships at their awards ceremony on June 7 at C-NS High School. A special thanks to the following groups who sponsored a lane or gave a door prize: Cicero Elementary PTG, C-NS Optimist Club, , Gillette Road Student Council, Karate Johns, Karl Saile Bear Road PTO, Syracuse Crunch, Roxboro Road Middle School PTO, Environmental Products Services, North Syracuse Faculty Bowling League, KWS Bear Road Physical Education Department, Papa Sports, Solar Spa, C-NS Bookstore, Hospitality Restaurant Group and Sweetrees Maple Product .
The North Syracuse Dollars for Scholars' next fund raiser is the Phone-a-thon that will be on March 6 and 13. Last year the Phone-a-thon received donations of over $10,000 from the community.
