    Welcome Ingraham Families!

    Friends of Ingraham (FOI) is the parent—teacher organization that connects families and educators in support of all of the students at Ingraham High School. By coordinating with Ingraham administrators, teachers, counselors, and other parent groups, FOI aims to keep families informed, connected, and engaged.

    Here are some ways you can get involved in the Ingraham community:

    • Give! FOI relies on the generosity of the community so that we can continue to support Ingraham High School. Money raised through our various fundraisers, such as the Annual Appeal and the FOI Auction, allow our teachers to have the textbooks and equipment they need, our counselors to better serve our students, our sports teams and clubs to be competitive, our performing arts department to thrive, and much more. No need to wait until a fundraiser, though! We accept donations year-round!
    • Connect with us on the Friends of Ingraham Facebook page to keep up-to-date on volunteer opportunities, upcoming events, and more! You can also join our Friends of Ingraham Community group, a great place to ask questions and learn more about our Ingraham community.
    • Come to our Family Education Evenings. In addition to our Board Meetings, we hold two types of regularly scheduled general meetings throughout the school year: our Family Education Evenings and our Ninth Grade Family Meetings. The schedule can be found on the FOI calendar.
    • Volunteer!  We provide volunteers to help in the classrooms, the library, during testing, and wherever they are needed. The SPS Volunteer Applications can be found here. Please complete application steps and email to
    • Show the love! Each month we show our appreciation to the hardworking teachers and staff of Ingraham with our Staff Appreciation Breakfasts! Friends of Ingraham supplies the espresso cart and we ask families to bring in a breakfast item of their choosing. It's a great opportunity to stop by, enjoy a complimentary espresso, and get to know the wonderful people who care for our kids every day.The complete schedule of Staff Appreciation Breakfasts can be found on the FOI calendar. For more information, please contact Sonya McLaughlin at
    • Bright Futures is a program at IHS that launched at last year's auction. Due to the generous supporters at the auction, IHS counselors are now able to more comprehensively support our students who are facing homelessness or housing insecurity. Through Bright Futures, FOI created the PRIDE Closet, a space where students can access necessities such as warm clothes, food, and school supplies. If you would like to help keep the PRIDE Closet stocked, please consider purchasing something from our Amazon Wish List.
    • Attend the Friends of Ingraham Auction! Each spring, Friends of Ingraham holds its annual auction, bringing together parents, teachers, and staff in a fun evening of socializing and generosity. Funds raised at the auction support critical programs at the school, benefiting our whole community. This year's auction will be held on March 30, 2019 from 5:00-10:00pm at North Seattle College in the Grove Dining Room. Save the date and stay tuned for further details!
