Graduate Grams — A Mercer Island Tradition





For the past 30 years, family, friends, businesses, and community organizations have sent Grad Grams to MI students completing 5th, 8th and 12th grades to acknowledge their graduation.


Now is the time to order a congratulatory Grad Gram for the deserving graduates in your life. Each Grad Gram is printed on parchment paper, personalized with your congratulatory message, and mailed directly to the graduate’s home. Grad Grams sell for $6 each.


Proceeds from Grad Gram sales support the Mercer Island Community Scholarship Program. This annual scholarship program honors 27 graduating MIHS seniors who are recognized by MIHS faculty for perseverance, passion, and for positive contributions to their classroom and community. The scholarships are funded entirely by the purchase of Grad Grams and direct donations to the Mercer Island Community Scholarship Program.


You can support this program by purchasing Grad Grams or by donating directly to the MI Community Scholarship Program. Your support makes a difference and is appreciated!
