School Communication

Ingraham uses various methods to communicate information out to students and families:

  • Students, please start checking your SPS email inbox daily for information from school. 
  • Schoology pages
  • School Bulletins:  We email the school bulletin via a system called School Messenger.  Occasionally, we hear from parents/guardians who say they are not receiving the bulletin or have suddenly stopped receiving them.  It is usually an email filter issue or you have inadvertently unsubscribed.  Please manage your communication preferences at this link: https://go.schoolmessenger.com/

Ingraham Athletic Booster Club Announcement:

Your Ram Family needs you!
The Ingraham Athletics Booster Club or IABC, is a 501(c)(3) that supports every athletic program at Ingraham High School. We believe that athletics are a valuable part of the high school experience and strive to make them accessible to all students.
IABC Vision: To prepare student-athletes for life by promoting excellence in academics and athletics, and by building leadership and teamwork skills.

IHS students are turning out in record numbers for athletics.
We need your help now, more than ever.
The IABC is kicking off this year’s direct ask, appealing to families, alumni, and friends of Ingraham to help us support ALL student athletes. The giving campaign is running January 30th through February 10th so don’t delay!
This year, our goal is to raise $25,000.
Check out our video https://youtu.be/ivZDfCjw3RI to see IHS athletes hard at work and hear what they’re saying about IABC and Ingraham Athletics.
This year any donation over $250 will be eligible to receive two generously donated Sounders tickets for ALL Regular Season Games (Playoff Games Excluded). Do not miss this unique opportunity to support our athletes!
IABC funds support grants that directly assist teams, coaches and athletes.
Previous grants have included uniforms, warm ups, and equipment purchases, like soccer balls, footballs, a tumble track, and a pitching machine. Grants also provide coach and athlete training and competition fees.
The IABC also supports our trainer’s salary. Earlier this year the IABC helped replace the ice machine so our athletic trainer, Sarah, can spend her time keeping our athletes healthy instead of securing bags of ice offsite.
Please follow this link to donate and
Thank You in advance for supporting ALL IHS student athletes!
