4-H 4H logo

The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished, through "hands on" learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship. All fifth grade students at LUES are 4-H members.

Staff from the Toombs County Extension Office visits fifth grade classrooms monthly to present an educational program and offer students with the opportunity to participate in activities outside the classroom. Meetings are conducted during Social Studies classes. For more information on 4-H in Toombs County call the Toombs County Extension office visit their website at or call 526-3101.

Jr. BETA Club Jr. BETA Club logo

The Lyons Upper Elementary Junior Beta Club consists of fourth and fifth grade students who have shown academic excellence by maintaining a 90 or above average in all subjects the previous school year. The group is formed at the beginning of the year and grades are monitored throughout the year to ensure that the members are continuing to keep up their academic performance. Possessing good behavior is also a big part of being a member. The students are showing leadership qualities by providing help to teachers, cleaning the school campus, and heading up a supply drive for SOAPS. The Jr. BETA Club is also responsible for the raising and lowering of the flags every day. At the end of the year during Georgia Milestones testing, they help motivate students to do their best by making motivational posters.

Sponsors are Natalie Richter and Angela Williams.
