BDS Beta Club
BDS students in grades 4-8 are welcome to join the Junior Beta Club. Students must be in good academic standing and are model school citizens. Students will meet in Beta class once a week to prepare for competition and work on service projects. Our club is nationally affiliated. We attend State Convention each year and participate in service opportunities around our community.
State Convention 2018
Last year, BDS won several events at the State Convention! BDS students placed in several competitions, including Tower of Power, Robotics, Quiz Bowl, Visual Arts, Speech, Poetry, and Social Studies.
Next year's State Convention will be held at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum March 17-19.
Next year's National Convention will be held in Oklahoma City, OK June 15-18.
Beta Club students have the opportunity to help others in our community. As shown in the picture above, students helped clean up after the tornado in downtown Hattiesburg.
