MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR THE EVENING to get together with athletic booster club (adult) folks and enjoy a regular or adult beverage and snacks. Location is the Blue Ridge Community Center. See flier for address.
This is a "get-to-know-you" social. Not a fundraiser.
Hear one or two people brag endlessly about their kids. Stand around against a wall, feeling awkward while seeking for the one person you sort of know. Or maybe get strong-armed into running the whole organization next year. Am I hitting on your worst fears yet? None of those things will happen!
It's fun. No big deal. Please come. Yes, it's all about the kids, but they won't be there, so ... really, come hang out with other adults, going through the same parenting stuff as you for an hour or two. We're parents who are trying to support all kids at Ingraham to have a positive high school sports experience.
Teams are competing. Navigate your way to Sports>Winter for teams and their schedules or links to their schedules. Check for post-season with team pages or the Metro League site.
The Ingraham Wrestlers battled through the Regional tournament Feb 10th at Nathan Hale high school. They qualified five wrestlers for the state tournament February 16 & 17 at the Tacoma dome. Congratulations to Tre Harstad, Connor Richardson, Gabriel Liau, Simion Mayo and Adriel Liau on their hard work! Go Rams!
Onward to STATE ! Natalie Booth for Gymnastics and Jackson Bottenberg for Swimming !! GO RAMS !!!

We had a smooth-running, heart screening event on February 7th at Ingraham High School, with 242 students going through the screenings process.
The effort to bring the heart-screening back to Ingraham was led by our Ingraham Athletic Booster Club President, Julie McCoy. A dedicated group of volunteers including Sue Hauck, Ann Weber, Tricia & Brian Axtell, Lisa White, Holly Salowey, Ruth Pappas kept the medical staff on schedule and well-fed. THANK YOU to all who volunteered their skills, their time, their cooking, to make this important event happen!
There were 4 students identified as needing follow-up consults, so it was well worth all of the work!
The ASB students pictured below also worked really hard on set-up and breakdown so if you see any of them give them a shout-out.
Nice work team!

Kelly Donovan 1986—2016
Kelly coached Ultimate Frisbee at Ingraham High School. We lost Kelly to sudden cardiac arrest on December 15th, 2016. She collapsed on Ingraham's field, while coaching her co-ed team in practice.
She was courageous, passionate, joyous, exuberant and loyal in all her endeavors. Through her artwork and charity football games, she helped raise thousands of dollars for Alzheimer's research. Her last act of love was the gift of life, via organ and tissue donation.
A new system called School Pay rolls out this year which allows families to pay athletic fees online. You can access SchoolPay on your student's SOURCE account. It's easy to use and doesn't require a separate password. Cash and checks still accepted in Ms. Medina's office.
These would be payments like the ASB $50 fee. Ask your coach or parent reps whom to pay for specific fees if you are unsure. Some team funds are collected and will go through the team's booster club account (not part of SchoolPay).
THIS IS TOTALLY SEPARATE FROM THE BOOSTER CLUB's FINANCES. IABC/ingrahamathletics.org is posting this as a courtesy since IHS student athletes need to pay the ASB fee 1x/year, and they can pay through SchoolPay.
Businesses who supported our concession stand project with their in kind donations. THANK YOU!
How to get your hands on this stuff? Well, you could come to the next booster club meeting, the Ram Shack during basketball when open or email your order to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll work out the details via email.
Signs for business supporters - Do you have a retail/public business and want to display your Ram Pride? Email to ask us for one of these.
This is what the yard signs look like. Ask for one!
If you're on Facebook, please ask to join the IngrahamRamFans group for IHS sports-related updates, info and images from our peoples as they happen.
Don't just shrug and wonder. Please email email@example.com with any comments, photos, PRAISE, questions, etc.
