Senior Beta Food Drive was a huge SUCCESS!!

We are so proud of our students!  They are always up for a competition and when it is to give back to the community they go out of their way to make it a huge success!

For the last 2 weeks the Senior Beta has been sponsoring a Food Drive at the high school.  The food was being collected for the Bridges Program that is on the Elementary Campus but serves the entire school.

Calico Rock High School students collected 4,875 food items, which is substantially more than had ever been collected in the past!!

The Seniors and Juniors will be receiving a popcorn and movie party for collecting the most items.  Way to show great leadership!!!




Our Angel Tree is up in the lobby of the high school! This includes students from PreK-High School. If you are able to help a family this year by purchasing gifts for one of our students, please stop by and get a card off of the tree! If you are unable to sponsor a child, but would like to contribute, you can give a monetary donation that 100% will go towards buying gifts for our students. Our community is always so giving and helps our students so much and we appreciate it! Gifts will be due by November 30th. Thanks for your support! 

Food Drive

Hello Pirate Fans!

Senior BETA is conducting a food drive for our Bridges program this week.

The Bridges program helps our students tremendously by providing the needs of our students whether it be with clothing, food, or supplies to help them with their education.

We would love for you to bring in any non-perishable food items to donate at the game tonight.  We will have a box set up in the lobby for you to drop those items off.

Pee Wee Basketball Practice
