This club is FREE to join and open to all Bearden Middle School students. We meet after school from 3:45 PM until 4:45 PM in room 111. Listen to BNN for announcements for specific dates or contact Ms. Simpson with questions firstname.lastname@example.org. Transportation from meetings and/or activities must be arranged by the family as transportation is not provided by the school.
The 4-H club will help you grow into responsible leaders and citizens by using projects to help you achieve those goals. Some of the most popular projects are public speaking, horse, photography, dog, cats, line & design (arts & crafts), clothing/textiles, poultry, electric, computers and leadership. We also offer opportunities for summer camp, workshops, retreats and service learning activities.
Bearden Middle School has an active 4-H club. Many of our members also active in the Knox County Honor Club, participate in Tn Valley Fair activities, attend summer conferences/workshops and go on to be active high school club members.
