Our Families

Family Engagement

At Launch, families are our partners and vital participants in their children’s achievement.  In order to serve our students, we get to know the needs of the community and share resources to help families navigate through challenges that affect student success.  We cultivate a sense of belonging, mutual trust, open communication, and collaboration around our shared goals for students.
