From the very first phone call I placed inquiring as to the possibility of our daughter attending, The Pegasus School has been nothing but positive and welcoming. We transferred our oldest daughter to Pegasus in Grade 1, because it became very important to our family that our children find a learning environment that focuses on fostering every child’s uniqueness—a special place that fosters their talents and supports their areas of struggle—all the while introducing them to an incredibly diverse curriculum. Pegasus has done all of that, while also helping my children cultivate their best sense of self. Our daughter's confidence in learning has grown beautifully during her time at Pegasus and our youngest daughter, who just started at Pegasus for pre-K, is also already demonstrating an immediate love of learning and is thriving within such a loving environment.
And now, as we integrate our entire family into this wonderful community, we feel humbled to be able to contribute to further the greatness of this school. Our giving to the school is two-fold: teaching our daughters that giving back to a place that has such a big impact on your life is paramount and the importance of furthering that environment for future generations. We hope your family feels inspired to do the same!
Our investment in Pegasus is our greatest expression of gratitude: gratitude for the people, the program, the effort, and the mission. When we decided this was the school for our daughter, we wanted to participate in making it the best home-away-from-home. We truly believe this educational foundation is shaping her as much as we are, and we feel beyond grateful that we can give back. With that, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to support building a state-of-the-art library. This project will benefit generations to come, and Pegasus will continue to be the standard of excellence that all of us will be proud of — now and in the future.
Investing in our daughters’ education is a top priority for our family. That’s why they attend Pegasus, and I’ve been honored to be a member of its Board of Trustees for the last three years. When we initially visited various schools in the area, we chose Pegasus due to the strong focus on, and track record of, success in academic excellence, personal development, and maintaining diversity. Our commitment to our daughter's education motivated us to make a substantial contribution to Phase One of the Roots to Grow, Wings to Soar Capital Campaign, which funded the new Science & Technology Center and related campus improvements. We’ve now doubled down, with a second substantial contribution to Phase Two, and I’ve volunteered to lead its Capital Campaign Committee. Please join us in supporting this critically important project by investing in your children. It’s the best investment you can make.
Our investment in Pegasus is our way of saying “thank you” to the school for embracing our children, their unique learning styles and abilities and our family. Pegasus has given us so much, and we hope that by investing in the school today, others will have the same amazing experience in the years to come! The facilities are the environment in which our children learn, so it is very important that they match the quality of the programs. The children and the teachers deserve it. There have been so many improvements over the years in curriculum and teaching methods…our facilities should match that growth. Pegasus has added such value to our children’s lives and ours as a family. Just as we started our time at Pegasus at an amazing school, time has moved forward, and the school must progress as well.”
Reflecting on the past nine years brings a smile to my face because of the amazing experience our entire family has had, and also seeing our kids persevere and excel with what they have learned at Pegasus. I am so proud to be a small part of building the foundation of the future of Pegasus. I am also thankful of the Pegasus community before us that had the foresight and capacity to make Pegasus what it is today. Without the founding families’ dedication to the future of Pegasus, our children’s experience would not be what it is today. These buildings, combined with Mr. Lopez’s incredible leadership, will not only maintain our children’s premier learning experience, but make Pegasus the go-to independent school in Southern California. Being able to give to a project that our own kids will not be able to enjoy makes us proud the give back to the future of Pegasus just as the generation before us has done for us. It also makes me want to have more kids!
