APS/Mission Graduate Launch to Learn Summer Passports

This summer was the kick off summer for the APS/Mayoral initiative: Launch to Learn Summer Passports

51 summer elementary schools participated in this new initiative.  All students were given the passports and were encourage to go out, see and take part in museums, public libraries and events around Albuquerque.  These passports were also available to any school aged student throughout Albuquerque. 

With this in mind:

  1. Students and families can return their Launch to Learn passports to their home schools, public libraries, or museums through September 11.  Everyone who returns a passport will receive a Hinkle pass for miniature golf and will be entered into drawings for 60+ prizes, including two iPads (
  2. After the September 11 passport return deadline, return all Launch to Learn materials (completed passports, and extra booklets, bus passes, and Hinkle passes) to Carla Cano office, 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE, Suite 600 West Tower by September 18.  If schools don’t think they will have more coming in to the schools, bring those that you have as soon as possible to Carla Cano office, 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE Suite 600 West Tower.
  3. We encourage the schools to forward this Launch to Learn survey link to families:  This is an important part of the program evaluation.


Thank you all for participating!
