Latest News

 

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!

Friends of Ingraham (FOI) is the parent-teacher organization that supports all Ingraham High School’s wonderful students and staff. By coordinating with Ingraham administrators, teachers, counselors, and other parent groups, FOI helps keep families informed, connected, and engaged.

Friends of Ingraham operates as a nonprofit charitable organization, independent from the national Parent-Teacher Association. Because we consider ALL Ingraham families valuable members of Friends of Ingraham, regardless of their ability to contribute financially, we have decided to forgo membership dues. Instead, we simply ask that you contribute to the community in personally meaningful way, whether through financial donation, volunteering, joining a committee, or simply attending meetings. 

If you would like to donate, you can do so here:

Stay Connected & Informed!

Ever wonder what’s happening at Ingraham? Are you uncertain about where to get information? If so, you are not alone! Here are some of the ways to stay informed:

The FOI Website provides information about FOI and its efforts to support the school, upcoming events, and volunteer opportunities.

The IHS Website  is an excellent resource. In addition to academic and program information, you can access the school calendar, the Teen Health Center, Naviance, college and counseling information, and information about the school booster clubs.

The Bulletin is sent out on Fridays. In it you’ll find news from FOI, the Ingraham Performing Arts Booster Club (IPAB), Ingraham Athletics Booster Club (IABC), and the administration. Topics will include upcoming meetings, fundraising, calendar events, and news from around the school. Contact the Ingraham Main Office to sign up. 

The Ingraham Athletic Booster Club website provides sports-specific information such as game times and results, coach contact information, fundraising, and paperwork.

If you're on Facebook, you can join one of our many Ingraham community groups – Friends of Ingraham CommunityIngrahamRamFans, and Ingraham Performing Arts Boosters are just a few!

Attend a FOI meeting: At general meetings, you’ll (virtually) meet other families, hear the Floe Report, discuss issues, and learn about topics relevant to your family. The FOI community is encouraged to attend the FOI board meetings, as well. There you’ll hear about the work FOI is doing and be able to participate in the grant approval process. As a bonus, Principal Floe will be on hand for Q&A!

Go to The Source: You can check your student’s schedule, academic progress and contact teachers on The Source. This is an invaluable resource, available from the Ingraham High School website.

Listen to your messages: Seattle Public Schools utilize a messaging service to keep families informed of upcoming breaks, inclement weather reports, and student absence and tardiness.

IPAB:

WELCOME TO THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR!

We're hopeful that this will be a great year with live performances from each group. However, we're missing some of the tools we need to properly support our programs, and especially our teachers.

The below board positions need to be filled ASAP to ensure that we can continue as a group. Please consider the gift of time to help support our programs, students, and teachers.

  • Treasurer – in charge of the budget! Arguably the most important job on our board.

  • Fundraising Chair – deals with 2-3 fundraisers per year. This will be another year of pivoting as needed, so we’re not sure what those fundraisers will look like yet.

  • Communications Chair – gets info about concerts, theater, fundraisers, volunteer needs, etc, out to parents/caregivers and the Ingraham community (and beyond)

  • Volunteer coordinator – we need help from parents with concerts/performances and fundraisers. If you can work a Sign-Up Genius, you’re good to go!

Please contact ingrahamperformingarts@gmail.com to inquire about positions

9/8 IPAB meeting email ingrahamperformingarts@gmail.com for meeting link. 

 

Land Acknowledgment

We respectfully acknowledge that we are in the homelands of the Coast Salish people, specifically the Duwamish people, who have been here since time immemorial and still live here today. We pay respect to the first peoples who gathered here, to elders past and present, and to all indigenous people. We thank the Coast Salish peoples, for their generations of stewardship over our natural resources.  Let us all work together to create inclusive partnerships, that honor indigenous people.
