August 19, 2020: Important Message!
Hi, Beta Members!
I am excited to work with you this year to make this the best year possible, despite any challenges and setbacks we may face due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
To keep our club members as healthy and safe as possible, Beta Club will be moving to entirely digital operations for Fall 2020. As time progresses, we will re-evaluate if in-person meetings can resume in the Spring.
Since the operation of our club is having to adapt and change this year, we have decided to update some of club policies as well. In order to receive the most updated information as possible, PLEASE make sure you are signed up for the Remind (information below). This is the best way to get up-to-date news and information about our Club.
Please email me with any questions or concerns that you may have. Again, thank you for being the very best students that VRHS has to offer, and for having such a positive impact on our community.
Mrs. Maggie Manley

*NO MORE than 4 church OR family hours combined
*NO MORE than 3 donation hours (these hours come from donating items to charitable organizations - approx. $7 worth of items equals 1 hour)
*No limit to the number of community hours (these are other volunteer hours that do not fit into the other categories. Examples might include: volunteering with an elementary school, picking up trash, helping another extracurricular organization, helping at a soup kitchen or animal shelter, etc.)
Hours Deductions Policy
Hours may be DEDUCTED from a Beta student who:
1) signs up for an event and fails to show up
2) signs up for an event and cancels the same day.
*This policy was enacted Spring 2019 due to a large number of no-shows and last-minute cancellations by Beta students, leading to a diminishing of our reputation and standing in the community. As a leadership organization that values Character and integrity, we expect ALL members to follow through with their commitments. Please contact Mrs. Manley if you have any questions about this policy.
