CMS BETA CLUB
BETA Club members must obtain and maintain a 3.0 or higher grade point average, and meet good behavior requirements per the National BETA Club membership eligibility rules.
BETA Club meets every other Wednesday unless meetings are added due to service projects or preparing for the state convention.
BETA Club is a service club with ongoing projects throughout the school year and breaks. Some examples of BETA Club service projects are:
- providing coats, blankets, hats, gloves, and scarves for the homeless (Coats for the Cold)
- Pennies for Patients
- Food, Treats, and supplies for Young Williams Animal Shelter
- Valentine Cards for nursing homes
- Toys for Tots
- Landscaping around the school campus
- Cards for Children's Hospital
Each November our club competes in the BETA Club TN State Convention. Over the last several years we have earned many awards in various competitions, along with several national qualifiers. For example, Reagan Carney has placed each year on the state level in Social Studies academic testing earning him a place at the National Convention and competition. When Reagan was in 6th grade, he placed 1st in the state and 2nd in the National BETA Convention Competition. His 7th-grade year he scored 2nd at the state, and his 8th-grade year he scored 3rd at the state. Our club has had several to place in several other academic testings along with visual arts and scrapbook competitions.
