DES Jr. Beta Club

The DES Jr. Beta Club is for students who show academic excellence and leadership qualities.  
Each spring, we invite 4th & 5th grades students with an on grade level academic average of 90% or higher to join our Beta Club.  Each student must have two teachers who do not currently teach them, fill out a recommendation form verifying that he/she has exhibited leadership skills during the school year.  Once all requirements have been met, we have an induction ceremony to welcome these hard working students into our club.
The DES Jr. Beta Club meets monthly starting on August 30th.  We meet in the Media Center during FOCUS time from 7:30 - 8:15 on the last Tuesday of each month.  During our meetings we work on developing leadership skills and serving our community through various projects.  Annually, we sponsor a school wide Pennies for Patients drive in conjunction with the Leukemia Foundation.
Our Community Project
We need your plastic bags!!  We are focusing on RECYCLING this year and want to help provide plarn blankets to our local homeless shelter.  Please begin collecting plastic bags from grocery stores, clothes stores, any store that uses plastic bags, really.  Send them in to the Media Center and watch what our Jr. Beta kids can do!
