Extracurricular

 

Beta Club - 
The Beta Club is a leadership service club that is open only to 7th and 8th graders. The club is com­posed of students who are invited to attend due to high academic achievement. Students invited to join the Beta Club are in the top 10% of their grade level. This is an honor that is bestowed upon stu­dents because of the students' outstanding qualities of character, scholarship, and leadership.

Please reach out to Tammy Essic at essict@davie.k12.nc.us with any questions. 

The Beta Club is doing a Service Project. They have decided to have a Penny Wars between the grade levels.  Each grade level in the club has chosen a charity. The winning grade level will donate all of the money to the charity of their choice.  There will be posters up to specify their charities. 

The Penny Wars will begin May 9 and go thru May 20.  The jugs to collect the money will be in front of the cafeteria.  Pennies and bills will add points to their scores and silver will subtract from their scores (sabotaging the other grades by putting silver coins into their jugs to make them lose points).  The winning grade level will also get an additional outside time (time and date will be announced) with some freezer pops.  



Davie County Hunter Safety Shooting Sports - 
Founded in 2001, Davie County Hunter Safey Shooting Sports has grown to field teams from Davie County High School, North Davie Middle, South Davie Middle School, and William Ellis Middle School.  Team members compete in archery, rifle, shotgun, and hunter skills events.  Each member of the coaching staff is a North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission Hunter Education instructor or a qualified Range Safety Officer.  As volunteer instructors we work with the team members not only in developing shooting skills but also safety, responsibility, ethics, and involvement in wildlife management.  Sign-up for this year’s team will be open Saturday, October 9, for the junior team (grades 6-8) at the Davie County Law Enforcement Range located at 370 Dalton Road in Mocksville.    For more information, contact Shannon Mathis at 336-399-0550.
