Jr Beta Club
At the beginning of the second quarter of the seventh grade year, students may have the opportunity to join the Junior Beta Club. The Junior Beta Club is comprised of students who display Christ-like characteristics, maintain a high level of academic achievement, and desire to serve others. The purpose of the club is more than recognizing students who have achieved a certain standard. Its purpose is to train students to lead by serving others. Therefore, there are certain expectations of the members. Monthly meetings will be held that members must attend. They must be willing to make sacrifices so they can serve others in various school projects and community service activities. It is a great opportunity for students to serve others in the community and to learn more about their own personal gifts and abilities that the Lord has provided.
There are three requirements for becoming a member.
At the end of the sixth grade school year, students will need to have a numerical average of 95.00 or higher (without rounding). We will look at the final overall average, not each quarter. Students will also need to maintain a 95.00 or higher during the first quarter of the seventh grade. These grades include all core classes and special classes. Students who receive a 79 or lower in any class will not be considered for membership even if that 79 is in a special class.
Students must have a good behavior record to become a member. Students who have received major disciplinary action or have a pattern of demerits may not be considered. Students who have disciplinary issues after being inducted in the Junior Beta Club may be placed on probation, prohibited from participating in certain events, or dismissed from the club.
Christ-like Servant’s Heart
Students who have met both of the above requirements will be asked to complete permission forms from parents and reference forms from teachers and/or youth pastors.
Students who do not meet the criteria in the seventh grade may be eligible after the second quarter of the eighth grade. All students will also have an opportunity to join the High School Beta Club in the 10th grade.
