    Beta members take pride not only in academics but also in helping those around us and in being good citizens! CCS Jr. Betas are Making History, our theme for 2013-14.

    Beta Club recognizes student academic
    achievement of seventh and eighth graders.

    2013-14 Jr. Beta officers are the following:

    Avery Harris, President
    Will Milholen, Vice President
    Jason Foulks, Treasurer
    Savannah Gaskins, Secretary
    Alec Brewer, Service Projects Chairman

    The National Beta Club recognizes high academic achievement, promotes character and social responsibility, encourages service involvement to school and community, fosters leadership skills, and provides settings to develop interpersonal relationship skills.  

    Inductions are held in the spring of each year. A student may be inducted into the Chatham Charter Jr. Beta Club if he/she has a cumulative average of at least 93 with no grade below 85 on the first semester grades and above average conduct. To remain in the club, a member must maintain a cumulative average of 90 with no grade below 85 and continue with good conduct.

    Chatham Charter Jr. Beta Club attends the N.C. Jr. Beta Convention and participates in academic and talent competitions. The club recently sponsored Red Ribbon Week to remind students to “say no to drugs.” Other projects include collecting aluminum pull tabs for Ronald McDonald House, campus cleanups, and assisting with the third grade production of The Nutcracker.

    Chatham Charter Jr. Beta Club is participating in a service project, HOPE Boxes for students in southeastern Kentucky. Beta members will provide shoe boxes filled with items for 6th and 7th grade students in Harlan and Perry Counties where about 30% of the population live below poverty level. The boxes, filled with items such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, candy, school supplies, toys, etc, will be delivered this spring. If you are interested in providing a HOPE box, contact Jr. Beta Sponsor, Kay Lopossay. Deadline to Chatham Charter School is March 21.

    February was a busy month for Beta Club at Chatham Charter.  The Junior and Senior Beta Club chapters both held induction ceremonies, and Junior Beta members participated in the annual state convention.  

    On Friday, February 28, the Junior Beta Club doubled its size when it inducted thirty new members.  Current members conducted an induction ceremony that was attended by sixth through eighth grade students, family members and staff who filled the gym.  A reception followed the ceremony.

    The previous Friday, February 21, the first Senior Beta Club induction in school history took place prompted by the August opening of a high school expansion. Seven sophomores were inducted in a ceremony led by high school faculty.  Family, fellow students and staff attended and a reception concluded the event.

    The month began with thirty Junior Betas, chaperones, and faculty advisors participating in the annual North Carolina Junior Beta Club convention February 3-4 in Greensboro along with 4,000 of their peers from across the state.  Club president Avery Harris, Savannah Gaskins, Jenna Michels, and Ella Randall placed third in the poster contest.  Emily Colborne placed third in the "spotlight your club" competition.
