Beta Club: 

CLUB/OVERVIEW: 
To promote the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students.

ACHIEVEMENT - Recognizing and honoring high academic achievement

HIGHLIGHTS: 
Community/School Service
All members must complete eight community service hours per semester. Students must provide Beta Club sponsors with a log of hours and activities as they are completed, with the total number of hours due by the last meeting of each semester. Service hour logs will be available from club sponsors and through Edmodo.

For services performed at school, the activity sponsor must sign the student’s log. Students may earn service hours for Beta Club through their service activities with clubs that do not require service requirements. However, hours completed for National Honor Society or those required for other service clubs or classes will not apply to the Beta Club’s service requirements. Note: If a member is unsure about a potential service activity, he should obtain approval from his alpha-sponsor prior to completing the project.
