EJE Beta Projects

Left Pic Right Pic

East Jones Elementary Jr. Beta Club strives to daily exemplify the Beta Motto, “Let us lead by serving others.”   The week of April 6-10, 2015, afforded these honor students many opportunities to live that life of servitude.  It began with creating and distributing posters to numerous local businesses with the information regarding Kindergarten Registration for the 2015-16 school year.  The second project the club sponsored was purchasing pine straw and spreading the straw in the EJE flower beds.  The final Beta project for the week was serving as greeters and campus tour guides for the incoming Kindergarteners and their families.  Many parents expressed gratitude for such welcoming and friendly faces as their children began a new chapter in their lives.  Once again, EJE Jr. Betas represented East Jones with integrity and humility.
