“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
Greetings Friends of Sealth,
What an incredible time to be a Sealth Seahawk. A new state-of-the-art building, an incredible teaching staff, talented students, dedicated and supportive parents/guardians, and an extremely active and involved alumni makes Chief Sealth International High School THE place to be.
A few months ago I had the privilege of visiting with the Class of 1961 and giving them a tour of the new facility. As we were walking around I found myself listening to the many stories of high school: the good times, the adventures, the activities, and the memories. As the group posed for a picture I thought to myself, this is what it’s all about: helping to create memories and opportunities that will last a lifetime.
Since 1999 the Friends of Sealth have done just that, created memories and opportunities for our students and alumni. Through your generous donations of time and money you have helped support the five A’s of Chief Sealth: Academics, Arts, Athletics, Activities, and Alumni. Over the past several years’ the Friends of Sealth have awarded academic and athletic scholarships, funded classroom projects, supported student clubs and activities, and preserved the memories of graduating classes with reunions and “pavers”.
As we move through the 2011-2012 school year I want to invite each and everyone one of you to participate in helping create memories and opportunities for the students, staff, and alumni of CSIHS by joining or contributing to the work of the Friends of Sealth.
I look forward to partnering with you!
Chris Kinsey, Principal

We are grateful to all those that have contributed to the Friends of Sealth through paver purchases, direct donations, and patronizing our concession stand. Through this generousity, three scholarships are available to qualifying Chief Sealth Seniors via an application process that is due May 1, 2013.
All alumni and staff are invited to join us July 13, 2013 for an all school reunion to be held from 2pm-5pm at the school. We are still busy planning the event and welcome all alumni to assist in this endeavor. Please leave us a message on our phone line (206) 252-8600 and we can notifying you of our next planning meeting.
Have you purchased your engraved paver yet? We are looking forward to adding more names to the paver path on the south side of the Performing Arts Center this Spring. Buy your paver today and become a part of Chief Sealth's landscape. You can stop by the main office during regular school hours to pick up an order form, or click on the “Purchae your paver here!” button in the upper right corner of this page.
Please plan on joining us July 13 for an afternoon of friendship and shared memories.
