Mills High School Club Advisor Information

  • Thank you for being a Club Advisor! As many of you know, it is often a responsibility that is overlooked, but can have a great impact on a student. Your time and commitment is appreciated. Below, you’ll see a list of helpful guidelines to assist you in an effective advisor and mentor.

    Forms can be found in the front office with Kathy Landa (Financial Officer) and Maurine Seto (Super Staff Assistant).  

    General Responsibilities:

    • Present for all Club Meetings and activities 

    Financial Responsibilities 

    • You handle ALL cash transactions 
      • Complete the Deposit Form link in this sentence and submit with money to Kathy Landa
      • Complete the Minutes form link in this sentence for any reimbursements, purchase orders etc. and submit to Kathy Landa 
    • When Making Purchases you have a few options: 
      • For items that can be bought with a Purchase Order, complete the Minutes Form and a Purchase Order Form
      • For items (such as food) that don't use/allow a purchase order, your club can complete a Minutes Form and the Credit Card Authorization Form: the DO will then purchase the goods and the funds from your account will be directed to the DO. No reimbursements necessary!
      • If you need to purchase and use a reimbursement, ideally have an adult make the purchase, complete a Minutes Form before the purchase, keep the itemized receipt and complete the process for reimbursement. However, the DO did say that if your club has a student that would like to make purchases, the DO can set up a PO Account number for that student, which will expedite the reimbursement (and make the DO happier). You can also request a PO Account be set up for an adult (and that might happen if you have the same person requesting reimbursements multiple times.
