Some examples of projects the Beta Club has done:

- adopted a child from Christmas Charities and provided Christmas gifts
- worked with Blessings in a Backpack program helping to pack food bags and also had a bake sale to raise money to sponsor 2 children

- collected items and made Christmas stockings to send to our soldiers stationed in Afghanistan
- did a campus clean-up
- sponsored 2 annual blood drives
- sponsored a teacher appreciation breakfast
We also attend the state and national Beta conventions to compete in academic and talent contests. We have had winners place in the top three at the state level for the past 3 years. We have also had a first place national winner! This year our national convention is in Orlando, Florida, at the Swan and Dolphin Resort at DisneyWorld.
