REACH is a member of the National Honor Society for Homeschoolers. We are the RHO Chapter...We have had our chapter since 2002... We were the first homeschool group in VA to sign-up and charter a club. To be a part of our RHO Honor Society you have to be a member of REACH - we accept new members in Aug of 2016.
See your newsletter and email for all the details on both clubs...
In case you didn’t know, the National Beta Club, “has become the nation's largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. They are committed to recognizing and promoting high academic achievement, rewarding and nurturing worthy character, fostering leadership skills and encouraging service to others.” REACH has 2 Divisions - Junior Division - grades 4-8 and a Senior Division -grades 9-12. The upcoming school year of 2016-2017 will be our 3rd yr as a Charter Group.
What does this mean to us? Homeschool children in 4-12 grade can now be a part of this long standing honor society founded on the principles of community service, honor, and leadership. Their motto is "Let Us Lead by Serving Others."
The REACH Homeschool Junior Beta club (grades 4-8) Eligible students will meet once a month, starting in September. The club will discuss and implement several service projects as well as have classes on character development--honesty, service, morality, ethical conduct, and leadership. Students will also have the opportunity to socialize and develop new friendships as well as providing a positive addition to their Homeschool Transcripts, College Applications, and Resumes
The Senior Beta Club will work together on community service projects, classes on Leadership and Character building, as well as providing them the opportunity to run for Club officer positions. This opportunity will allow your High School Teens, grade 9 -12, the chance to socialize and develop new friendships as well as providing a positive addition to their Homeschool Transcripts, College Applications, and Resumes. Seniors will be able to buy and wear National Beta Club Graduation Regalia.
