Dear Jr. Beta Members and Parents,
We are so happy to have you in Jr. Beta this year. There have been a lot of changes with the national club in the last two years, and we are making changes in our Bonifay K-8 Jr. Beta club as well. This year we will be having Jr. Beta Club meetings on designated Wednesdays from 2:30 -4:00 pm. We will have games, snacks, and projects to work on not only for State Convention in Orlando November 24-27, but also Service Projects in our school and community. Our focus this year will be on leadership skills and service. This year’s national theme is "Beta Fueling the Future”. Members are not required to go to state convention. There are a lot of other ways to participate in Jr. Beta. Attending state convention is a privilege, and the focus is on academic and performance-based competitions. Information and guidelines for competitions can be found online at betaclub.org or at the link at the bottom of this page. Convention costs and details will be given to those who are interested as soon as final plans have been made. Please remember that participating at convention is a serious commitment. Be prepared to put in the necessary time and effort to represent our club, school, county, state, and yourself in a positive way.
National Convention will be June 15-18 in Oklahoma City, OK. If we have students who qualify to compete at the national convention, we will make every effort to go next summer!!
At this time we have the following meetings scheduled:
Induction Ceremony for Officers and New Members --- To Be Announced
Regular Club Meetings:
Please make plans to attend as many as possible. Students competing at convention may need to stay for extra scheduled rehearsals, practices, or to work on an entry. Students will report to the designated area at dismissal and will need to be picked up in front of the gym at 4:00pm.
We are looking forward to a great year!!!
Kyla Rushing and Stephanie Paul
