Prattville Junior High School BETA Club

Forms for joining Beta Club at PJHS will be included in each student's homeroom packets that will be sent home August 6, 2019.

What is Beta Club?

Beta Club is a club that honors students for their academic achievement, character, leadership and service. To be eligible for Beta Club, students must have all A’s & B’s. Students must also complete 20 service hours throughout the school year. PJHS Beta participates in state convention each year. The students have the option to attend a three-day field trip where they compete in numerous categories academically and creatively. PJHS Beta brings home awards each year!

How does a student join?

If the student meets the criteria above, he or she may join immediately. If a student has been a part of Beta in a previous year either at PJHS or at another school (including Daniel Pratt, PES, or PIS), he or she only needs to pay the school’s club fee of $20 to remain an active member. If the student has never been a part of Beta, he or she may join for the first time for $35 (school’s fee $20 + $15 National Fee). Fees must be paid no later than September 6. Please be sure to complete the attached form.
