Students from Compton Early College High School perform "Peter Pan" for more than 300 second and third grade students at five elementary schools across the district. 

Students at Washington Elementary School in Compton select books as part of CUSD's Enchanted Spring Literacy Event. 

Students at Washington Elementary enjoyed "Peter Pan" while wearing their own hats provided by the performers.

Students from Compton Early College High School created an interactive experience for children throughout the show, providing them with cues to participate in the performance.
Thank you for your support!
