For your child to be invited to join our Beta Club, your child needed to end their 6th or 7th grade year with a GPA of 3.6 or higher!
Per the Beta Club web site, “The purpose of the National Beta Club shall be to promote the ideals of character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students, to reward meritorious achievement and to encourage and assist students in continuing their education after high school. The National Beta Club, a student-centered organization, continually develops and nurtures individuals by providing opportunities and experiences enabling them to demonstrate the ideals of character, achievement, service and leadership in a global community.”
To meet the mission and vision of the National Beta Club, our club has participated in a variety of community service projects within our school and outside of it. Last year, students organized a food drive for many of our families in need and almost 60 families went home with three grocery bags of food for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners (and we still had food left over). They organized a military drive and we were able to send over 20 care packages to our troops fighting overseas. Students helped count pennies during our Pasta for Pennies drive for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We did a beach clean-up at Ormond-by-the-Sea. Your child has the opportunity to participate in these and many more community service opportunities.
Once in Beta Club, your child will need to maintain their 3.6 or higher GPA for each quarter they are a member. (For 7th graders, they must have a cumulative GPA of 3.6 or higher at the end of the school year to maintain their membership for their 8th grade year.) They must participate in community service, whether within the club, or outside of it. There is also a $15 membership fee. This fee covers the National Beta Club membership. This membership will give them a pin, a certificate, a subscription to the Beta Club magazine and access to the Beta Club online website. The fee may be paid online at the school website, www.sanford.scps.k12.fl.us under the Payschools option, or your child may bring in the fee to Mrs. Cazel (cash or money order only please). Fees are due to Mrs. Cazel (room 12-006) by November 30th. Meetings will be held the first Wednesday of each month from 8:30 to 9 am in room 12-006 or the gym.
