Building a Future for Our Students, Together
INTRODUCING THE GEISLER FAMILY WINGS

Wonder, Inspire, Nurture, Grow, Soar


The Roots to Grow, Wings to Soar Campaign was launched to modernize the Pegasus campus, providing the same necessary emphasis to our learning environment that we place on education. Our newest Geisler Family WINGS will be the heart of the Pegasus campus, a place where all members of our community can gather to collaborate and be inspired.

Project Highlights

The Geisler Family WINGS at the heart of the Pegasus Campus will include:
  • The Library: Spacious and inviting. Inspiring and innovative. It’s a place for reflection, instruction, and collaboration. It nearly doubles the amount of stack space from the current library, allowing for a larger collection.
  • Small group study rooms to provide quiet spaces for collaborative project work in a small community setting.
  • The Launch Pad: The instructional space where great ideas take flight. It includes ample seating designed for class reading time and group lessons from the librarian and classroom teachers.
  • Laura’s Loft: a nod to our founder and the perfect little nook to read, play, and engage.
“In the library we are not just readers. We are actors, creators, poets, scientists, and architects.” — Carin Meister, Pegasus Librarian
