Teamwork was at the forefront this spring; alongside the TPAC performing arts instructors, teachers, staff, and City Year members all helped the students prepare for the Peter Pan show. Each day teachers and City Year worked with students in small groups as a part of English and Language Arts class. As preparation for the final performance ramped up, they helped the students read and memorize their lines from the Peter Pan script, and honed their voice quality, volume and stage presence. In addition, Mr. Cvengros (the music teacher) assembled a choir to back the main characters and used their class time to learn the songs.
The team effort and hard work paid off as the Johnson students put on a Peter Pan master class at Collins High School on May 22nd and 23rd.
