Get Your Ticket Today!

The Friends of Ingraham Annual Auction is the largest community building and fundraising event of the year. Enjoy an evening with the Ingraham community, a live auction with buffet dinner, silent auction, dessert dash, raffle, wine grab, and more! Your donations benefit the entire school, allowing us to fulfill grant requests from all departments, as well as funding specific projects during the Raise-A-Paddle event.

Get your tickets before March 5th to score Early Bird pricing of $65/person! Let's make sure our awesome staff has a seat, too; you can sponsor an Ingraham High School staff member for a discounted rate of $45!

Did you know that portions of the funds raised at the Friends of Ingraham Annual Auction also directly benefit the individual classes? Each class has their own account that follows them throughout their years at Ingraham. The money accrued is then used to finance the Senior events, such as Senior Spree; the more the students have earned in their four years, the lower the overall cost of their Senior Card!

Participating in the Friends of Ingraham Annual Auction is one way that the classes earn money each year. Freshmen students volunteer to clean up after the event, working hard to earn their first deposit. Net proceeds from the raffle sales benefit the Sophomore class, so keep an eye out for students selling tickets during the event. Remember to save room for dessert, as the Junior class receives all proceeds from the Dessert Dash!

From Seattle Public Schools

The winter weather and related schedule changes have been a challenge for many and we thank you for your patience. In February, school closed for five days due to the series of snow storms.

This year’s school calendar included two make-up days in June (June 21 and 24); the three additional make-up days will be added to the calendar following those days as outlined in the 2019 Collective Bargaining Agreement, with the Seattle Education Association.

The last day of school for students in grades preschool through 11 will be June 27. In order to meet the state’s instructional time requirement, the last day of school for students in 12th grade will be June 20. High school graduation dates will not change. Click here for the full update.


Educational Programs and Operations Levy and Building Excellence Capital V Levy Pass!

Thank you, Seattle Voters, for braving the snow and continuing to support our students by passing the school levies! You can read more about the election here.


Ms. Juneau, Superintendent of SPS made a visit to Ingraham High School on Frebruary 28th to meet with students and staff and tour the school. Ms. Juneau also did a shout out on the intercom to the Ingraham Basketball Team on their win at State!
