                                3
                  LYMAN HIGH SCHOOL FUNDRAISING PROCEDURES

Fundraising has become a necessary and vital part of the “health and welfare” of extra-
curricular activities on campus. Because virtually every organization on campus is
responsible for raising its own funds, some guidelines must be followed in order to
accommodate everyone.

Please fill out the appropriate paper work and have all fundraising activities approved by
the director of student activities so that it may be posted on the calendar on Ly man’s web
page. Each organization will be allowed two weeks for a major buy/sell campaign.

While selling is a quick way to raise funds, please remember that it is the sponsor’s/coach’s
responsibility to account for all funds at the end of the school year. In order to ensure an
accurate accounting of funds, the following steps are necessary:

   1. Please pick up an Activity Planner Form and Fundraising Request and Reconciliation
      Form from Lesbia Velez. You will need to complete and return the necessary
      paperwork at least two weeks prior to the start of the fundraiser. A purchase
      order, if applicable, must also be submitted at this time. Activity Planner Forms
      and Fundraising Request and Reconciliation Forms should be turned into Lesbia
      Velez.

   2. When the purchase order is numbered and signed by Mr. Casillo, the white copy will
      be returned to you. At that time, you may purchase the items. Material that
      arrives without an approved purchase order will be returned to the vendor.

   3. When fundraising material arrive, please verify the amount indicated on the shipping
      invoice. All invoices should be given immediately to Gail Ohnstad, the bookkeeper.
      If there is a problem with the shipment, it is the responsibility of the
      sponsor/coach to contact the company.

   4. Please check out receipt books from the bookkeeper. Receipts to individual
      students may not always be required. Check with Gail Ohnstad prior to the sale.

   5. Collect and deposit money each day by 2:30 P.M. A Report of Monies Collected Form
      and the receipt book should be used.

   6. Reconciliation with the bookkeeper should take place by the conclusion of the
      second week/beginning of the third week of the sale. It is the sponsor’s or the
      coach’s responsibility to ensure that each student meets their obligations. If


                                              4
      necessary, make parent contact in an effort to collect outstanding monies. Students
      should then be placed on the obligation list if they fail to return money or product.

   7. No fundraising activities should start after April 1.

Advisor’s Responsibilities:
While selling is a quick and easy way to raise funds, there are certain responsibilities that
must be assumed by the advisor. As it is the sponsor’s responsibility to account for all
funds at the end of the school year, it is important that the financial policies be strictly
adhered to.

   1. All materials must be ordered through a school purchase order.
   2. Materials that arrive at the school without an approved purchase order will be
      returned to the vendor.
   3. All materials issued to students for sale must be accurately documented.
   4. Each time a student turns in money, he/she should be issued an official school
      receipt.
   5. All monies collected each day should be turned into the bookkeeper along with a
      monies collected form and the receipt book.
   6. At the conclusion of the sale, a reconciliation form should be completed for the
      activity.
   7. All unsold goods should be returned to the vendor for credit, with accurate
      documentation.
   8. All invoices should be paid upon receipt; the bookkeeper will issue the advisor a
      check to be mailed or hand-delivered to the place of purchase.

FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES COULD RESULT IN THE
ADVISOR HAVING TO PAY THE AMOUNT DUE BEFORE BEING ISSUED CLEARANCE
FROM THE BOOKKEEPING OFFICE AT THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR.




                                              5
ACADEMIC TEAM
This is an opportunity for those students with quick minds and great powers of recall to
compete against others like them. It is the classic buzzer game which some now know as
“Brain Bowl” or “College Bowl.” It combines speed and accuracy in answering, along with
teamwork. The practices are a fun environment focused on polishing the strategies
needed to be successful in this game.

ANIME
This is a club that gives students the opportunity to see new animated series that
originate in Japan. All titles are appropriate for student viewing and are screened ahead
of time by the club sponsor. Other activities are encouraged, but must be brought before
the sponsor for approval. This includes, but is not limited to drawing, discussions, cultural
awareness, etc. These activities are driven by the members of the club and will default to
anime viewing if nothing else is on the agenda.

ASL (American Sign Language)
The American Sign Language Club was established to bring two worlds together: the Deaf
and the Hearing. The ASL Club is interesting, fun, and educational. By using sign language,
students are immersed in the language thereby learning the language more easily. It is a
great way to interact with Deaf students and become friends with them. This club has
many fun and educational activities throughout the year. The club also sponsors Silent
Dinners in community locations - parks, malls, restaurants, and recreational places. Club
members al so have an opportunity to participate in Seminole County’s World Language
Festival.

BAND
The instrumental music department at Ly man High School provides a wealth of
opportunities for students to enjoy. Students will experience varying styles of music fr om
pop to jazz to classical literature. Different classes offer performance opportunities from
large ensembles to small groups, and provide opportunities for solo development. This is
not a “club” in the traditional sense, as it is a requirement that a student enrolls in a band
class to participate. Our primary goal is to further each member’s musical abilities and
talents to promote the best in musical performance. Being a member of the band does take
time, responsibility, and dedication.

BIBLE CLUB
The Bible Club meets on Mondays at 2:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. It is a group open to anyone
who wants fellowship and to read and discuss the Bible, and participate in prayer.

competitions.

admissions process. Scholarships and financial aid are also explained in detail. College Club

College Counseling from UCLA, will assist students in developing a list of schools that are a
good match, and help them with the application procedures.

relates to athletic injuries. They have the opportunity to take the Care and Prevention
class offered as a half P.E. credit during school and they will have other opportunities for
learning such as in-services, guest speakers, and hands on activities after school.

more seasons. All students interested must have at least a 2.0 GPA and reliable
transportation for after school activities.

STEP TEAM
The art of stepping exemplifies strength, encouragement, and a sense of pride.
Originating from the rhythmic beats of the African drum, step dancing was implemented
first in the African American fraternities and sororities. It is a march/dance/body
slapping/chanting combination and is used as a way to create unity within the African
American groups and others who are interested in learning. Each member must maintain a
2.5 GPA and display an extensive background in dance. Participation in regularly scheduled
practices, pep rally performances, step team competitions, fundraisers, and various
performances is a requirement. Try-outs are held at the beginning of the school year and

course definitely teaches leadership, teamwork, and organization. An application and
approval by Mr. Plyler (02-013) and Mrs. Hooper (02-023) are required to enter the
course.

TEENAGE REPUBLICANS (TAR’s)
As a chapter of the national organization of Teenage Republicans, this club seeks to affirm
a Republican identity among young people by encouraging pol itical action through education.
Our regular activities include discussion of current events and policy, as well as analysis of
