Honor Ithaca High Seniors

April 22, 2017

Buckley photoEach spring, Ithaca High School senior class families and friends have the opportunity to support the I.H.S. Senior Class Gift Fund that supports three awards presented in June. The Class of 2017 officers have shared the following message:


As the end of our high school experience draws near, we would like to thank all of the people who have supported us throughout our education. Ithaca High School students are fortunate to attend a school with so many resources and opportunities. As students, we would like to thank the IHS teachers, staff and community for inspiring and motivating us every day and for preparing us for the future. Through the Senior Class Fund (managed by the Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI)) the senior class has an opportunity to recognize teachers, staff and IHS clubs.


Over a decade ago, a wonderful tradition began when the senior class families endowed a fund at IPEI. The Class of 2017 would like to actively carry on this tradition and grow the Senior Class Fund at IPEI. This fund allows the senior class to vote and recognize recipients in the following categories:
• The New Teacher Award – honoring an untenured teacher at IHS who exemplifies enthusiasm and creativity in teaching (a $200 gift to the teacher along with a $150 contribution to the IHS Library in that teacher’s name)
• The Student Organization Award – for an IHS club that makes a significant positive impact on student life (a $300 grant)
• The ICSD Staff Member Award – honoring an exceptional staff member who has worked at Ithaca High School for 5 or more years (a $200 gift along with a $150 contribution to the IHS Library in that staff member’s name)



We hope you will help us to achieve this by making a gift in honor of your senior. Your contribution will be fully tax deductible. Every cent of your gift goes to the Senior Class Fund.


All awards will be selected by a ballot vote by the Class of 2017. Presentation will take place at the Senior Awards Convocation in June.
Thank you parents and guardians!


Lastly, but certainly not least, we would like to thank our parents/guardians for the endless support. We thank you for your generosity as we conclude our IHS careers, knowing that we leave behind a gift for the teachers who helped us meet our goals.

Thank you from the IHS Class of 2017 Officers,
James Yoon, Yolore Airewele, Josh Slusar, Mrinal Thomas
