Reminder: Field trip to the theater this Thursday(12/14)

December 12, 2011 in Announcements

 

Hey all,

Just a reminder– TREA is going on a field trip this Thursday evening to see a theater performance called “A place for the Night” put on by the Possibility Project (formerly known as City at Peace). Teens write, produce and perform original shows based on different themes each year. This performance in particular illustrates the lives and experiences of young people in foster care. The shows are always incredibly engaging and honest, and more than anything show the power youth have in creating social change through creative means.

 

The show starts at 7:30pm (on Thursday, December 15th) and we will probably be back to Queens by 10pm. We have 12 student tickets so please reply to this email or let Jose know if you are interested! We will need permission slips as well. The show is FREE and will be performed at: The Theatre at Saint Peter’s on Lexington Avenue and 54th Street. Jose and Emily will meet students at the Renaissance School and head to the show together. Please join us!

More info about the show can be found here:

Also— TREA’s OPEN MIC is the following Thursday, on December 22nd, where you can share poetry, music, art, etc. so get psyched for that!

Thanks!!

Hey all,

Thanks to those of you who came to our great conversation last night on LGBT concerns and how we can be more human, empathetic and aware. It was a great meeting.

Next week we are going to see a theater performance called “A place for the Night” put on by the Possibility Project (formerly known as City at Peace). Teens write, produce and perform original shows based on different themes each year. This performance in particular illustrates the lives and experiences of young people in foster care.

LGBTS: Bringing it out of the closet

December 7, 2011 in Announcements

Hey guys,

Thanks for coming to our last TREA meeting!  We spoke about how drugs and alcohol affect us and why people do it. It was great, so thank you for coming! This week we will talk about LGBTS (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, straight) and we hope that you can join us. It is an important topic and we hope that you all contribute. We will be discussing how we react towards people that are gay or lesbian, etc. We will also talk about how society treats them. Hopefully you will have a better understanding of these people and how they aren’t really that different from us. It will be a fantastic meeting. We are looking forward to seeing you! The meeting will be in the The Renaissance Charter School (TRCS),in the third floor, room 313 from 6-8pm. Snacks and refreshments will be available. Please bring your friends and spread the word. TREA is open to the public (with ID). See you there.

Sincerely,
TREAfolks
