    Senior Awards Night

    is June 7th beginning at 6:30 PM in the Ingraham Auditorium.

    Graduation Ticket Details

    Here are all the details on tickets to Graduation! All the students are given 6 tickets to Graduation – they are more of a momento of the event than an actual entrance ticket. We have about 300 graduates this year and the stadium only seats about 1,100. We try to limit the number of guests the students invite in order to have some seating for the parents etc…

     

    The number of students who will actually walk at Graduation is probably closer to 250 – some of the running start students do not participate in Graduation at the high school. We never turn anyone away at the gate but I do encourage students to let parents and grandparents have the seats in the stadium and they can stand around the edge of the fencing and watch the ceremony.

     

    Some families have out of town guests and cousins…we always want to have everyone there that can attend. If you are coming with an older grandparent etc… I would encourage you to be at the stadium no later than 4:15 PM. We have a 5:00 PM graduation this year and I am sure the stadium will fill up early.

     

    Soooo… in answer to your question – we do try to limit the number of guests to family….some students want to invite friends from other High Schools and it is just too tight on space to be able to do that. Does this help? Let me know if you have any other questions…

     

    I would also bring an umbrella just in case and a cushion to sit on…those bleachers are metal…..Mary

    The Advisor for the Class of 2018 is Elizabeth Dolan. If you would like to volunteer to help with Senior Activities next year please send Ms. Dolan an email ejdolan@seattleschools.org

    I am sure she would love the help as there are many events Senior year that would benefit from Parent help!

    Hello Senior Parents! Even though June seems a very long time away, it is time to start planning and reserving venues for SPREE (the post-graduation night celebration). If you like planning parties - this is the committee for you! Ideas and notebooks of timelines etc. are available from the last few years to help guide your committee. Please contact Betsy Dolan (ejdolan@seattleschools.org), Senior Class Advisor ASAP if you can help.

    Attention Sr. Families: SPREE NEWS



    Your 2018 SPREE committee is hard at work, planning this year’s SPREE event. For those who don’t know, here’s some information explaining SPREE:

    • SPREE, is the top-secret all-night entertainment extravaganza for the graduating Senior Class. SPREE offers a safe and fun environment for seniors to celebrate their accomplishments and create lasting memories together.

    • While other Senior events (Prom & Sr. Breakfast) are coordinated by students, the SPREE committee is coordinated by an all-parent committee.

    • SPREE is funded by:
    o The past four years of fundraising on the part of the Class of 2018
    o Senior Card sales
    o Donations

    This event cannot happen without your help. Here’s what you can do:

    • Buy your student's senior card now! The Senior Card admits studnets to Prom, Senior Breakfast and SPREE. Current price is $130 per student and will increase by $10 each month as the event draws near. Senior Cards may be purchased via SchoolPay. Access SchoolPay from the Home page on the Ingraham High School website or via The Source: https://ps.seattleschools.org/public/. If you have any problems with SchoolPay, please contact Ms. Dolan at ejdolan@seattleschools.org.

    • Donate prizes: The goal is to make this event fun for all the kids who attend. This includes games and activities and prizes. Prizes can be things like gift cards or other small items that teenagers might like. Can you donate prizes or do you work for an employer who might do so?

    • Donate to the general SPREE fund! The cost for each student to purchase a Senior Card is now $130. The total cost of the three events is approximately $300 per student, with the SPREE event, alone, costing about $150 per student. Any donations to offset this difference are greatly appreciated.
    To donate, go to the Alliance for Education page or follow this link:

    Thanks for considering
