National Junior Honor Society: Sponsors Ms. Howard
Students in 7th grade who are on the Honor and Scholar Roll at the end of the first semester are invited to apply to the National Junior Honor Society. In their application, students are to list any community service activities in which they participate and complete a short answer response explaining why they want to be part of NJHS. Students must provide a teacher nomination to accompany their application. Once all applications are submitted they are reviewed by a Selection Committee made up of five faculty members.
Once accepted, students maintain membership by attending meetings and completing a minimum of ten community service hours during their 8th grade year. Students who exceed the 10 hour minimum are recognized during the 8th grade moving on ceremony.
The NJHS Chapter requires that its members uphold the following five pillars of the National Junior Honor Society:
Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence. (Each school chapter is allowed to require a higher cumulative GPA.)
Community service involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic engagement; has a high regard for freedom and justice; respects the U.S. form of government; respects the law for all citizens at the local, state, and federal levels; and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility in activities such as scouting, community organizations, or school clubs.
