Launch 2020 Seniors Post-Secondary Institution Scholarship Recipient Highlights

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Launch High School congratulates Class of 2020 graduates, who have been granted scholarship awards. The University of Colorado Boulder has selected Logan Wall as a $2,500 recipient of the Esteemed Scholars Bakers Award. This 4 year scholarship is based on exceptional merit. Logan also received a $1,000 Regent Scholarship from the University of Colorado Boulder, which is based on high academic achievement, rank in class, level of course work, and test scores. Additionally, CU Boulder has awarded Logan the Shultz-Spangler Memorial Scholarship which is bestowed on Colorado students in the College of Arts and Sciences who meet a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs also awarded Logan a 4 year $2,500 UCCS Chancellor’s Award.

Neyalla Gallagher has received a $20,000 merit-based University Scholar Grant from the University of Denver. Our 2020 salutatorian, Tyler Dobson, received a $2,000 Culver’s Foundation Scholarship. Megan Sanders, Launch’s 2020 valedictorian, has received a  $500 Early Action Award from Western Colorado University as well as a $1,000 Art Merit Scholarship and a $14,000 Slate Merit Award from Western Colorado University. (It is anticipated that this award will soon be replaced with a Valedictorian Full Tuition Scholarship!) For her high-achieving performance at Launch High School, Megan also received a $10,000 Chancellor’s Award, from UCCS. As she will be attending Western Colorado University and not UCCS, Megan will not be accepting this award. Congratulations Logan, Neyalla, Tyler, Megan and all of our Launch High School Seniors and families! Best of luck as you prepare for college and your professional careers!

Launch High School Closed In Effort to Slow COVID-19

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Launch High School, along with all of the local school districts in El Paso County jointly decided to close schools for the week before the scheduled Spring Break due to the COVID-19 coronavirus situation. The closure is an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus. The state has asked all public schools to follow suit with local districts and the action seems prudent.

Our presumed return to school date is Monday, April 27, 2020. If closure beyond April 27 is appropriate, Launch has a plan and is very well suited for continued virtual learning. Please have your student log into the Summit Learning Platform to build skills, complete check points and communicate with fellow students (via the online platform) to keep the work flow going.

Thank you for being flexible, responsive and understanding as we continue to work through the changes presented to all of us.
