Renaissance in the Spotlight

Congratulations to Ezequiel Ortega, Alissa Marquez, Joycelyn Opoku, Serena Garcia, and  Yudelis Paredes on being accepted into the AVID College Success Program. This year nine NYC high school seniors were accepted into the program, five of whom being from RHS! The College Success program will provide both financial and professional support for the duration of their college life.

On Friday, April 8 Renaissance students participated in a Bronx wide event
My School Has Rhythm Not Violence.
Alyssa Martinez performed spoken word and Brian Romero, Luis Ocasio, Cassey Tuitt, Kris Larmond and Brandon Figueroa sang a song, 'For the Longest Time'. All participants promoted peace within the community.

Check out the Bronx News 12 feature below:

During the 2015 Holiday Season a group of Renaissance students and the entire Renaissance Staff adopted a local women and children's shelter. Together our school community purchased gifts for all of the children residing at the shelter, wrapped the gifts and then threw a holiday party for the children who participate in the after-school program at the shelter.

This school community project allowed Renaissance to be part of GenerationOn's Joymaker Challenge. In addition to what our community gave, Hasbro Toys will donate 25 additional toys to Toys for Tots because of our student's participation in this community service project. See Renaissance featured on the Joymaker Challenge Website:
