Launch Day was first piloted at Inglemoor High School during the 2018-2019 school year. It is a partnership between PTSA, the Northshore Schools Foundation and many volunteer community members.
It is a day for seniors to talk to experienced members of the community about lifestyle changes after graduation, what to expect at college, how to manage personal finances, when you should go to the doctor and other important subjects. Since the 2019-2020 school year ended with virtual classrooms, the Launch Day also went online.
