Community Building Events
All PTO programs and activities are funded by The Pegasus School Annual Fund, Give to Great
As the 2020/2021 school year approaches, we are hopeful that we will partake in the events listed below, however, the format may be revamped due to our new normal. As we plan for these events, we will comply with the most updated CDC, state, local and Pegasus guidelines.
Thank you in advance for your flexibility and support as we all navigate this unprecedented time together.
Back-to-School Faculty/Staff Luncheon and Breakfast
. Every August, teachers return to campus to prepare their classrooms. The PTO recognizes this late summer transition with two welcome back treats to kick off a new school year.
First Day Social.
The first day of school is special. Parents are invited to join the PTO on campus to meet up with new and old friends, enjoy a cup of coffee and snacks, and shop at the Pegasus Pop-up store.
Fall Parent Parties.
Throughout the months of September and October, Pegasus families host grade-level parent parties in their homes throughout Orange County. This is an excellent way to reconnect with your kids’ friends’ parents and meet parents who are new to the community.
Grandparents and Special Friends Day
. Grandparents or special guests are treated to an informal breakfast, special shared activities in the classrooms, and a performance of the Winter Concert. This year’s event will take place on Friday, December 18, 2020.
FALL SERVE and SPRING SERVE. The PTO is excited to continue to sponsor opportunities for students to give back to the community at large. FALL SERVE. is on October 30, 2020 and SPRING SERVE is on April 7, 2020.
PEG LOVE Staff Appreciation. With the overwhelming success of our monthly appreciation days, we will continue showering our faculty and staff with love and appreciation one day a month for the entire year. We would love your help to make each celebration special for our beloved staff. Look for sign-ups in the Pegasus post to contribute your time, donate an item, write your teacher a PEG LOVE note, and have your child wear a Pegasus t-shirt. Get ready to PEG LOVE the people that inspire our children...all year long!
End of Year Celebration. As much as we love Pegasus, everybody needs a break. PTO recognizes the need for students to whoop it up as school winds down. Mark down June 9, 2021. School’s out!
PTO Meetings, Spring Luncheon
. On September 24, 2020, we gather in the CMPR to reconnect, to stay informed face-to-face, and to learn something new. At the end of the year, on May 20, 2021, we gather at a local hotspot to do the same. Everyone is invited.
Other Community Building Events
. As opportunities arise, the PTO organizes spontaneous gatherings throughout the year for parents to get to know each other while we shop/snack/exercise and just hang out with other parents.
Continuing Education and Student Assemblies
PEGtalks. The PTO is proud to present a TED-inspired parent forum for live and taped presentations delivered by prominent individuals from a variety of fields, many culled from our community. Please look for announcements about upcoming speakers and join us or link-in.
PEGpresents. PEGpresents programming provides teachers with even more possibilities to educate, enlighten and fascinate our children by sponsoring extra presentations to support classroom curriculum.
Teacher “Wish List” Gifts
Classroom Gifts. The bulk of PTO funds are dedicated to fulfilling an annual “Teacher Wish List.” Traditionally, teachers add items to the list that typically fall outside classroom budgets but, on even the smallest level, enhance the learning experience. Once these items are approved by the administration, the PTO fulfills the requests.
The Little Extras…
Teacher and Staff Birthdays.
The PTO honors each and every staff member with a little birthday love.
Room Parent Coordinators, Middle School Liaisons
. These volunteers are your greatest source of information for just about everything. They are the information link between teacher and parent, and PTO and parent.
Emergency and Safety
. The PTO ensures that all classrooms are supplied with up-to-date and fully equipped emergency backpacks.
Lost and Found.
The PTO facilitates the sorting, sourcing and return of lost/labeled clothing that has been placed in the designated lost and found vessels in the CMPR.
Thunder Spirit Store. New this year, the PTO's unique retail venture that brings fun ever-changing spirit wear and accessories to the Pegasus community has moved ONLINE! Shop anytime at www.pegasusapparel.itemorder.com/sale.
