Keeping our PRIDE Pantry & Closet well stocked
A huge THANK YOU to the Girls Soccer Team and the Cross Country Team!
We kicked off the 2019-2020 school year with a very successful Snack to School drive hosted by the Girls Soccer Team. All of the snacks received helped replenish our PRIDE pantry which offers non-perishable snacks and drinks to our Rams who need some extra support.
Shortly after the Snack to school drive, our Cross Country Team hosted a Socktober - Glovember drive to help keep our Rams warm this fall & winter. It was a huge success! If you happen to be at the school check out the display case just North East of the main office.
Bright Futures is always accepting donations throughout the school year. We are in need of new socks, gloves, hats, coats, toiletries and snacks. All of these items help support our students who are experiencing housing insecurity. Items can be dropped off in the blue bin in the office or you can always order from our Amazon Wish List and have the items shipped directly to the school.
Your Donations at work!
Friends of Ingraham just completed our first grant cycle of the school year. Thanks to the generosity of our community we provided over $15,000 in grants to various clubs and classrooms. Uniforms, graphing and non-graphing calculators and Spanish/English dictionaries to name a few. None of this would be possible without your generous contributions to Friends of Ingraham.
Be on the look out in the next few weeks for a letter from FOI for our direct give campaign.
Save the Date for the next FOI 9th Grade Family & General Education Evening on 11/20

Lisa Davidson, the Manager of Prevention at Seattle Public Schools will be presenting information on Ingraham’s substance use rates, common drugs/devices, school procedures for intervention, parenting strategies and resources.
Lisa Davidson is the Manager of Prevention and Intervention at Seattle Public Schools. Lisa has worked with adolescents for 19 years as a youth intervention specialist, health educator, and program manager. Since 2007, Lisa has been at Seattle Public Schools focusing on youth risk data collection and analysis, sexual health education, mental health promotion, and the prevention of adolescent drug use. Her experience in drug use prevention has brought her to present at many events, including the National Conference on Tobacco/Health and the National Youth-At Risk Conference. Most importantly, it is Lisa’s life as a mother that provides her the passion to support other parents in navigating the teen years.
All FOI Family Education Evenings (our general meetings) take place in the IHS Library. We look forward to seeing you all there!
