NJHS

National Junior Honor Society at EHMS

NJHS is an organization that encourages and recognizes academic achievement while developing other essential characteristics. The ideals of scholarship, service, leadership, and character are important as we prepare future leaders for our global society. 6th and 7th graders are both invited to participate.

Membership is an honor and commitment. Students will apply for membership and will be admitted after demonstrating the four ideals. Students will be given opportunities to serve their community and engage in activities that will support them in their quest to become members.

We will meet at least once a month throughout the year, offering group, school-based service projects. Students will be required to complete 10 hours of service prior to May. All 10 hours may be earned through school-based projects. Students must maintain at least a 3 average in all academic AND 3 R standards.

An informational meeting for all students will be held during advisory on Wednesday, October 2, in front of the auditorium. Inducted 7th graders need not attend. Applications will be given out at this time and will also be available in the Counselor’s Office. The application period ends on Friday, November 1. LATE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

Current 7th graders who were inducted last year will be given an, “Intent to Continue NJHS” form to fill out but do not need to reapply this year.

Please don’t hesitate to contact one of us if you have questions or concerns.

We look forward to a new year of NJHS!
