HOUND highlights Administration Principal Mr. Michael Rice Office Hours 7:00 am - 3:00 pm Monday - Friday

Lyman High School is committed to providing educational opportunities that will prepare and empower students for an ever changing global society.

A Message from the Principal Wow, where has the time gone! It seems like yesterday that I was writing my first newsletter article to you, the Greyhound Community, and we were planning our first year together. As I look back, there have been so many incredible moments in this past year from SGA activities like Homecoming Week to sporting events, pep rallies to prom, and orientations to awards ceremonies. Every aspect of this year has given me further insight into the special place that Lyman High School has become over the past 92 years of its existence. Our journey this year has been filled with laughter, joy, spirit, pride, tears, and challenges, but most of all, as our Alma Mater states, these experiences, “shall lead us in our conflict, and our triumphs prove”. Lyman, you have fought a great battle during the 16-17 school year and have made us proud! I thank you for being such a welcoming group of kind individuals. You have welcomed me and included me as a part of your house. As we say goodbye to the Class of 2017 and say hello to the 2017-2018 school year, where we will welcome the Class of 2021, I share with you one last look into the accomplishments of our students since our last newsletter. Over the last few months, our students and teachers have excelled and received district, state, national, and even world level recognitions! Our Winter Guard, under the direction of Mr. Stephen Porter, was recently honored at the Winter Guard International World Championships in Dayton, OH. The Gold Team earned 2nd place in the World Championships! Leading up to the WGI Finals, the Gold Guard performed at the FFCC State Championships where they placed 1st in their division, while the Blue Guard placed 2nd in their division! Congratulations to both Winter Guard’s on a fantastic season. Our drama students were recognized at the Florida Thespian Competition that took place in Tampa, this past April. Congratulations to Ms. Gerdeman, and her students who took home a superior rating with their Large Group Musical, the Critics’ Choice Award (along with straight superiors) was secured by Carter Liebman, and a superior rating was earned by Iman Bijou Gebara for her solo musical! In athletic competitions, Tyreek Thyme and Bryce Bell competed at the FHSAA Track and Field State Championships in early May. Tyreek took home the silver medal in both the 100 & 300-meter hurdles while Bryce finished the 3200-meter race in 7th place! We also recognized 7 more students who were recognized for signing with NCAA Institutions, bringing our total for this year’s Senior Class to 12! These students include Liam Woehrle (Soccer), Garth Verdeflor (Volleyball), Sophie Krist (Lacrosse), Demarcus Gallagher (Football), Dewayne Rackard (Lacrosse), Jakese Miller (Football), Giovanni Quiroz (Soccer), Max Meyer (Rowing), and Maddy Murphy (Rowing). We are in the final phase of our long-time project to build a new stadium entrance! This project has been the work of our Athletic Parent Association and will include a new ticket booth, iron gated entrances, a Lyman High School Arch, and brick columns and iron gates along the front of the stadium. We hope to have the project completed by the start of the football season. We are still looking for financial contributions ...continues on next page

I look forward to a fantastic year of working together with you to make this a year that you will never forget! Finally, as always, at Lyman High School, we believe that the education of a child involves three critical components; the student, the teacher, and the parent/guardian. If all three are engaged in the learning process, then the child is more likely to succeed. Parents, we have many resources that have been designed to assist you in this process (Twitter, Facebook, Remind, Skyward). Please visit the Lyman High School website and click the options on the left side of the page to ensure you are registered. I look forward to working with all Greyhounds this new school year. If there is ever anything we can do to help you and your child to succeed, please don’t hesitate to ask. Remember, you matter, we matter, “Everyone Matters” at Lyman High School. Sincerely, Michael J. Rice Principal

Tardy Policy

For the upcoming 2017-2018 school year, Lyman High School will implement the following new tardy procedure. Punctuality is an important skill for high school students to develop, and Lyman High School is committed to academic responsibility including, reporting to class on time. Teachers are required to shut their classroom doors on the last scheduled bell for each class period. NO STUDENT is allowed into the classroom without a pass. Students late for class will be referred to an administrator or the front office to obtain the required pass.

All Address Changes Must Be Changed at the Lyman Student Services Department

Parents are required to report your new address information as soon as possible. You must complete an Address Change Request Form along with providing the new proofs of residence to the school These Proofs of Residence are as follows: Owned residence: a copy of the recorded deed OR a certified copy of homestead exemption AND a current electric bill. AND one of the following current documents: an auto registration, a driver’s license (showing current address), OR a voter’s registration. Rented or leased residence: a copy of the current lease, rental agreement or a notarized letter from the landlord AND a copy of current electric bill or initial order for service AND one of the following current documents: an auto registration, a driver’s license, or a voter’s registration. Once all of the documents are received, then your address will be updated in Skyward and all siblings at their schools also.

The following discipline progression will be followed: • First tardy offense – warning • Second offense - after school detention for one hour, • Third offense - after school detention for three hours.

If your address is now Out of Zone, you will have to log onto the Choices website and apply on-line for an appropriate applicable transfer. Again, this is the Parent’s responsibility as part of the Address change. The websites for this are:

Any student receiving over three tardies will result in a “repeated offense” referral and will be referred to administration. When a student returns to the classroom with a pass, teachers will mark the student tardy or absent in Skyward as required by the classroom attendance policy. Students more than 10 minutes late for class will receive and “unexcused absence” in Skyward.

Science Department News

The biology students took their end of course exam on May 11th and 12th. Many of the biology students attended the lunch and learn review sessions conducted by the biology teachers. The students are finishing the year with the fetal pig dissection. The advanced placement science classes ended strong with reviews and mock exams for their students. The students will find out their scores in July. We would like to recognize our new teachers and thank them for all of their hard work this year. They have each made important contributions to the department. Thank you Dr. Fares, Mr. Eleser, Mr. Robertson, and Mr. Bowes!

learned how to streak agar plates, grow DNA colonies in the incubator and to run gel electrophoresis to ensure that the experiment worked. They also created plasmid maps based on their DNA fragments. Our final project will focus on Renewable Resources. It was a very packed nine weeks and we are looking forward to the end of the year.

Project Lead the Way

Institute for Engineering Introduction to Engineering Design (IED): Students are continuing to develop their CAD modelling skills in Autodesk Inventor. They are learning how to use new tools and methods to design 3D parts. They will continue using 3D modeling throughout the rest of the year through the Autodesk Inventor software. Several students will earn dual enrollment credit with Seminole State College (SSC). Civil Engineering and Architecture (CEA): Students are learning about commercial design and development while using sustainable practices. Students will learn how to conduct site planning, identify water supply considerations, lay out electrical and plumbing systems, and complete water drainage calculations, along with some other site design for commercial buildings. The students will continue to work with and learn about construction documents, floor plans, elevations, section views, and site plans.​ Digital Electronics (DE): students are learning how to download software, write a program, and interface with hardware using the Arduino microcontroller. Students learned how to create circuits using Multisim and download them to an FPGA. Students are preparing for STEM careers and higher education by learning real-world applications with electronic projects. Aerospace Engineering (AE): Aerospace students are wrapping things up in the 2016-2017 school year. They are putting the finishing touches on their Custom build Autonomous VEX projects. These robots vary from working transmissions to organizational bots to navigation bots. Aside from that they are preparing for their End of Course exam which will take place mid-May. Environmental Sustainability (ES): Students continued their work with DNA by learning about Restriction Enzymes and how to cut DNA plasmids (circular pieces of DNA) with these enzymes. Work then progressed to inserting a DNA fragment, in the form of a gene, which was resistant to the antibiotic Kanamycin. Students

Principles of Engineering (POE): The last quarter of the Principles of Engineering course is focused on software used in engineering and science. Students began the quarter using MATLAB, a sophisticated mathematical computational tool used to solve a wide range of engineering specific problems. In the second half of the quarter students learn Machine Control by building several machines and using computer software, RobotC, to control various mechanical processes to complete a specific task. Students begin by building a test-bed which is used to test hardware inputs and outputs through the software code that they have written themselves. The lesson culminates in a final project in which they must build and program a machine with very little input from the instructor. Engineering Design and Development (EDD): Seniors successfully innovated open-ended projects using the and the engineering design guidelines to solve realworld problems. They have competed with their product designs and participated in various STEM events. Congratulations on all of your portfolios, projects and videos. Good luck with your future!

The Academy of Teaching, Learning & Leadership program at Lyman High School is up and running. In just a few weeks, we will have completed Year 2 of our program. Next year students will study Human Growth and Development in both theory and practice. Both Level 2 and Level 3 students will complete this course together in order to readjust the program to follow Florida Department of Education requirements. This will include a component that deals with Exceptional Student Education. Seminole State College is continuing to partner with Lyman High School and provides dual enrollment courses where student receive college credit in the basic education course requirements as they complete the courses here at Lyman. Students work in a hybrid classroom setting, where part of the class time they are working on their online course work through Seminole State’s CANVAS program and other times there are class discussions and activities to help students gain experience (classroom observations) and retain the concepts that they are learning. This is an exciting opportunity as the field of education is a rewarding and challenging field where great teachers are in high demand. Students in this program get a head start toward a degree in the Education field. For additional information, please contact

Odyssey of the Mind

We had a great year with Odyssey of the Mind. Lyman fielded 2 teams and both teams made it past the regional competition and on to the state competition! The Problem 4 team placed 2nd at regionals and 7th at states. It consisted of Brandon Costa, Perry Frazer, James Ferry, Ezri Garcia, Valentina Moss, Caitlyn Spring, and Patrick Wilson. This problem requires the team to use 15 grams of balsa wood to build a structure that holds as much weight as possible. The structure and weight placing is incorporated into an 8 minute skit which is also scored. The Problem 5 team placed 1st at regionals and 4th at states. The teammates were Maria Guribe, Tanvi Mathews, Eric Owens, and Vida Tonkova from Lyman, Olivia Jacques-Baker from Hagerty, and Lily Jacques-Baker from Jackson Heights. Their problem was to create a humorous 8 minute skit with an original superhero and a clumsy sidekick who help save creativity in three different instances. Congratulations to all of the team members and coaches Katie Folger, Pam Baker, and Matt Baker! We couldn’t have gotten so far without them. We will have teams again next year, so keep an ear open for when our information session will be held at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. Laura Pollard Odyssey of the Mind School Coordinator The Lyman Crew Team has had a great spring season, with 47 rowers competing in the state championship! Three of our boats traveled to Philadelphia for the Stotesbury Regatta, the largest high school regatta in the country, and three graduating seniors will be rowing at UCF, Embry Riddle and the Coast Guard Academy in the fall.

In Quarter 4 the math PLCs continued instruction in various ways. The AP classes of Calculus AB, Calculus BC, and Statistics finished introducing new concepts and began intensive reviews and practice sessions for their respective AP tests in May. Following their EOCs in April, the Geometry, Algebra I, and Algebra II teams incorporated projects and hands-on activities allowing students to continue learning as they explore and review important concepts. Probability/Statistics, Trigonometry/Analysis of Functions, PreCalculus, Liberal Arts, and Math for College Readiness continued instruction leading up to the quarter exams and began introducing the topics students will encounter in their math classes next year. Multiple students represented Lyman High School at SSC’s annual Math Competition on April 1, 2017, competing individually and in teams of four. The Calculus AB team placed third and the Algebra II team placed second in the county. The following individual students placed in the top ten of their respective subjects: Nihasilla Gopi (9th), Eric Owens (6th), Griffin Lay (5th), Jason Harmon (3rd), Erica Hetrick (2nd), and Jared Diaz (1st). Congratulations to all the students and their teachers who helped them prepare for this competition. Next year’s competition will be held on April 7th, 2018. Mu Alpha Theta concluded a fun year. The club had limited opportunities to compete, but members enjoyed spending time with other math fans and practicing math skills. Officers are already planning for next year. Patrick Wilson and Michael Daleo will be co-presidents, Srajan Dube will be Vice-President, Erica Hetrick will be secretary, and Uday Katravulapalli will be treasurer. In addition to wrapping up the 2016-2017 year, the math department has begun looking forward to next year. Multiple teachers participated in the IP writing process at the district level, evaluating the schedule and structure of specific courses, and adjusting both to increase student achievement and provide supporting resources for the teachers across the county who will teach those courses next year. Various PLC’s will meet during post-plan to analyze data from this year’s exams and tweak individual instruction plans and methods for next year. Many classes have already begun blending technology with instruction, also called flipped classrooms, through use of teacher-created videos that students watch as homework; station-based practice assignments that students complete in class under the direction of the teacher; and outside resources such as Kahn Academy and Math Nation that teachers assign as supplemental instruction or practice. The initiative to blend classes is strongly supported by the district and more lessons will be delivered to students in this manner, specifically for Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry.

Both the Algebra I and Geometry teams will be meeting over the summer for additional training led by Lyman’s new Learning Coach, Mariette Juster, and facilitated by various members of the district-level content specialists. The PLCs will develop lessons that incorporate blended learning and integrate Google Chromebooks and station rotations in the classroom. The expectation is that this will facilitate differentiated instruction and increase student engagement and ownership for their own progress. Incoming Algebra I students will complete a summer packet reviewing the prerequisite concepts and skills they learned in Pre-Algebra. This should reduce the amount of time spent on review during class and allow teachers to introduce new concepts sooner. The Algebra I team is exploring the process of gaming the classroom where the material is presented to students in a game format. Each unit comprises a level of the game and students earn experience points through journaling (notes), skill practice, real-world applications, and brief assessments before being allowed to test on the material. Once mastery is shown for each unit, students are allowed to level up and begin the next unit. This unique delivery of instruction should pique student interest and help them see the connection between good study skills and increased content mastery. The Geometry team will continue implementing stations in their classes. Mia Keyser from the district leadership consulted with them as they created, delivered, and evaluated lesson plans utilizing stations. The team will also meet over the summer to develop more lessons incorporating stations. By having stations and practice sets created in advance, teachers will be able to focus on facilitating student practice and providing frequent feedback during the year. They are excited to increase student participation, engagement, and achievement through stations. Some members of the Algebra II and Liberal Arts teams are considering ways to increase the connection between math skills and the students’ daily lives, using Project-Based assignments and other hands-on applications to make the concepts more relevant and engaging to the students. Other team members will continue using a flipped classroom model as described above. As always, Lyman math teachers will plan future lessons by reflecting on this year’s progress, carefully collecting and reviewing data, and deliberately implementing appropriate teaching and learning strategies. We continually aim to improve student fluency in math skills and increase their ability to apply what they have learned in our classrooms to many aspects of their daily lives. It is our goal to prepare students with sufficient math skills to live as happy and productive members of our community
