National Junior Honor Society
National Junior Honor Society at EHMS
(Click HERE for Spanish)
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 or a combination of school-based and outside activities. Students must maintain at least a 3 average in all academic AND 3 R standards.
Applications will be available in the counselor’s office beginning October 2nd. An informational meeting for all students will be held during both lunches on Wednesday, November 1 in the desert area (in front of the auditorium). Applications will be due on November 1st and should be brought to the lunch meeting along with the Quarter 1 report card.
Current 7th graders who were inducted last year should pick up a, “Intent to Continue NJHS” form to fill out and return. They do not need to reapply.
Please don’t hesitate to contact one of us if you have questions or concerns.
We look forward to a new year of NJHS!
