Member recruitment typically takes place in the spring, but with Covid, this year we will have recruitment in the fall. We will likely have recruitment again in the spring (6th graders may apply then for the following year along with 7th graders), thus we will hold 1 induction ceremony in April/May 2022.What is Jr. Beta Club?The purpose of the Lakeside Middle Junior Beta Club is to promote the ideals of character, service, and leadership while rewarding achievement. The Lakeside Beta Club is an honor/service club for 7th and 8th grade students only. These students wish to be of service to our school and community.The motto of The National Beta Club is "Let Us Lead By Serving Others." This motto, more than simply a catchy phrase, states the philosophy upon which The National Beta Club is based. Service to others is indeed one of the most important characteristics of Beta Club membership. Service projects will address needs in our school and community by Beta members throughout the school year.
Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 8:00 am in the media center.
More information will be given out at the meetings.
