The Roots to Grow, Wings to SoarCampaign 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.
The Geisler Family WINGS at the heart of the Pegasus Campus will include:
The Osgood Family 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.
Interested in learning more about the project?
Join Elle Charles for a “Capital Campaign Campus Stroll” which includes a tour of the planned space and a chance to sit down and ask questions about the project in a casual, small-group setting.
Available Dates: May 4 and 10 Time: 8:30–9:15 a.m. Location: FISCH Bowl
