SERVICE CLUB IS A HIT AT ST. FRANCIS CATHOLIC SCHOOL
Newcomers might be surprised to find that a service group called Beta Club is one of the most popular student organizations at St. Francis Catholic School on Hilton Head Island. But a recent trip to play Pictionary with residents at Bloom at Hilton Head assisted living highlighted the club’s appeal.
On a Monday afternoon when they would normally be in study hall, eighth-graders gathered in the school’s cafeteria. They discussed a bit of club business — possible locations for an upcoming beach cleanup day — and then, after adult sponsor Laura Christie checked to make sure each student had handed in a permission slip, the group walked through the school’s parking lot to Bloom.
