Principal’s Update & Important Dates

As we near the end of this semester in LaunchED, it’s fantastic to see our students putting in tremendous effort to finish strong! To ensure your student gets the support they need, encourage them to make the most of resources like office hours and one-on-one sessions with teachers.We know this is a busy time of year, and we hope that you and your families have a wonderful weekend!

Attention Students (and parents)!

Please make sure that your iPad is updated to the latest iOS. We recommend checking weekly to see if there is a new update for your iPad’s operating system. So many apps and websites for LaunchED rely on these updates.


We have three STEAM-focused clubs available at LaunchED:
STEAM Stars: Students in Grades K-2, meets one time a month, and 3rd-5th meets two times a month.
STEAM Club: Students in Grades 6-12 meet two times a month.
Students can join in person at our LaunchED campus or online!
