All PTO programs and activities are funded by The Pegasus School Annual Fund, Give to Great.
As the 2022–2023 school year approaches, we hope to partake in the events listed below; however, the format may be adjusted 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 through this unprecedented time together.
Community Building Events
Back-to-School Faculty/Staff Breakfast and Luncheon. Every August, teachers return to campus to prepare their classrooms. The PTO recognizes this late summer transition with a welcome back breakfast, as well as a luncheon to kick off a new school year.
First Day Social. The First Day Social is a chance for the PTO to welcome parents back to school. Parents are invited to join the PTO after drop-off in the morning to meet up with old friends, meet some new ones, and have a cup of coffee on the first day of school.
Fall Parent Parties. Throughout the months of September and October, grade-level parent parties will be offered at a location in Orange County. This is an excellent way to reconnect with parents in your student(s) grade and meet parents who are new to the community.
Generations Day. Grandparents and special guests are invited to participate in this yearly tradition from near or far. This year’s event will take place virtually for all guests on Friday, December 23.
FALL SERVE and SPRING SERVE. The PTO is excited to continue to sponsor opportunities for students to give back to the community at large. This year’s events will take place on October 31 and March 29, where students will help support a worthy cause.
PEG LOVE — Staff Appreciation. Once a month, the PTO sponsors and coordinates a little something to “share the love” that we all have for our cherished teachers and staff. Then to wrap up the year, we will shower them some more with a special luncheon and surprise treats in May. Get ready to PEG LOVE the people that inspire our children…all year long!
End-of-Year Celebration. Let’s celebrate the successes of the year! The PTO recognizes the need for students to whoop it up as the school year winds down. Mark June 7 for a fun concluding event. School’s almost out—let’s celebrate!
PEG Service. In addition to the PTO’s two big SERVE events, families are invited to participate in our various community-service drives and other service opportunities throughout the year, e.g. winter coat drives and used book drives.
PTO Meetings. On September 16, we will gather in the CMPR for our general PTO meeting. This is a chance to reconnect, stay informed, and learn what’s new. All Pegasus parents are invited to attend.
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.
