For the past 6 weeks, Sixth Street Youth have been working on script writing, prop and costume creation from up cycled materials, and set design all for our big play, "The Bees Knees." It debuted on May 12th as a part of the Ecological City climate resiliency parade throughout the Lower East Side. The play is a story about bees, why they are at risk, and what we can do to save them! The kids wrote it themselves as they learned about the bees we have here at Sixth Street (on the roof!) and how important they are for pollinating the fruits and vegetables we love to eat.
We are so proud of their hard work and are grateful to our Sixth Street parents and community members for all their help, from lending beekeeper outfits and wings to joining us on May 12th for the play and the parade! We are so inspired by the sustainability efforts happening all over the neighborhood and can't wait for next year.
Keep up on what's happening around the community center!
