Welcome to the Manta Stand!
What is the Manta Stand? Simply put, it's Lemon Bay High School's store. You can buy almost anything school spirited, from shirts and shorts to lanyards and clocks! The Manta Stand is located in Room 136. We are open before and after school as well as throughout the day. Browse our site to see what we have to offer! Stop by and tell us what you want, and we'll get it for you.
The Manta Stand was founded by now principal Bob Bedford back in 1997. In 2009 teacher Michael Henry took it over, and continues to oversee the operation of it to this day.
With its humble beginning as a few students selling soda after school, the Manta Stand has now grown to the go-to place for school spirited accessories and clothing. We sell products before and after school, at football games, open houses, homecoming, and many other school events.
The unique aspect of the Manta Stand is that it is entirely run by students. During a 4th and 5th hour class known as "Business Entrepreneurship" students take on various roles that a real business would have - such as stocking, inventory, and marketing. The hands-on experience that students receive translates into skills that can be utilized in the real workforce.
