Junior Beta Wins National Bid

They were all smiles when they got the news today!!!!

                              Junior Beta Club Announces

Calico Rock, AR, December 9, 2020-National Junior Beta officers from Calico Rock High School are celebrating their recent participation in the Arkansas Virtual Leadership Summit. Today, they were announced as National qualifiers for the "Lead Outside the Box" challenge.  Caroline Mitchell (President), Alia Kearbey (Vice President), Scarlett Owens (Secretary/Treasurer), and Mylie Waire (Student Council representative) comprised the team which represented the entire club. 

Typically, National Beta Leadership Summits bring together students from multiple states for 1-2 day events. During that time, students work with interactive speakers who engage members through introspective exercises and team-building activities. Clubs can also participate in team-based leadership challenges, which test their communication, critical thinking, creativity, presentation, and collaboration skills. While the Leadership Summit, originally planned to be held in Hot Springs, AR,  was canceled for in-person attendance due to health and safety concerns stemming from the COVID-19, members were able to work together to submit their challenges online and met virtually for interactive leadership trainings from Bill Cordes and Ted Weise. Their victory at this level provides the opportunity to compete at the national level. National Convention will be held at the Swan and Dolphin Resort at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida during Summer 2021. 

"This challenge forces our students to work together to solve problems in a unique way.  This year's prompt was to identify challenges that our students can tackle on their own with an Interactive Survival Guide.  It needed to address attendance, academic, extracurricular, parental, student, and teacher support, along with creating a safe space so that students can physically go and de-stress,"  said Tracy Hodges, advisor, "It was not an easy challenge, and I was so impressed with the officers' abilities to put other needs above their own."

The Calico Rock Junior Beta Club has 21 members in grades 7-8, and its motto is to "Lead By Serving Others."  The organization will be sending home invitations to potential 6th grade members next week.  Some of the other projects the club is working on this year include electing a Teacher of the Month, creating school pride signs, and keeping the student treasure chests full.  

Student of the Week!

Announcement Regarding Quarantine Guidelines:

The CDC has made an announcement that it is optional for states to have a 14 or a 10 day quarantine period.  However, please be advised, the Arkansas Department of Health has NOT made any official changes to the Quarantine Directive at this time.  Therefore, the current 14 day quarantine is still in effect.  If the Arkansas Department of Health notifies school districts of changes in the protocol, we will pass that information along to the parents of quarantined students.  
Thank you and stay safe.
