KMS Beta Club Celebration- Month of March
Shout Out- Turn in a “Shout Out” about someone in our club who is helping others and you feel deserves to be celebrated. Pick up a form outside of Mrs. Walton’s room and turn it in by Friday, March 4th. Just write a sentence or two describing what someone else has done that deserves to be recognized. All the “Shout Outs” will be entered in a drawing for a prize. They will also be displayed at the Beta Club inductions.
Student/Parent Picture-Was your parent a Beta Club member in middle school or high school? Submit a picture of you and your parent(s). In the picture create a sign that mentions Beta Club. Bring these pictures to Mrs. Walton by March 11th. We will display these pictures at the Beta Club induction ceremony.
Be a Bunny-Easter Baskets for the Elderly – We will have a meeting after school on February 19th .3:10 – 3:30. This program is sponsored through the United Way of Aiken County. You may do this project on your own or work with a group of two or three. You or your group need to gather “goodies” to fill a basket for a senior citizen in our community. Then on Friday, March 11th , we will meet in the library to put our baskets together. The Beta Club will provide the basket and the covering for the basket. After we get the baskets together, there will be snacks! Plan on being here on that Friday from 3:10 – 4:00.
Inductions- Our induction ceremony for new members will be held on March 17th. We will need current members to help with giving out programs, serving refreshments, and cleaning up. You should be here at 5:45 if you are helping. We will have a sign up sheet for this in March.
Multiple Sclerosis Walk- There will be team planning meetings for this project throughout March. Listen to announcements for when the meetings will be held. The walk will be on the morning of April 9th at Odell Weeks.

Chocolate Fundraiser- During the third week of April, we will kick off our only fundraiser. We will sell World’s Finest Chocolate bars. The money is used for school and community projects throughout the next year. More information will be given as the time gets closer. This fundraiser was delayed until the fall.
Baseball Buddies This is a great project. In the past few years, we became buddies for children with disabilities. We assist them in playing baseball and cheering for them. As the time gets closer, we will have the dates. This project was canceled because the city decided to not use students to help the children; they are using only adults.
***You must participate in two projects this semester. ***
