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. Zoom links will be available for remote learners to attend the meetings. 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.
Applications will be made available beginning October 1, 2020. Students may pick up an application at the front entrance to the school. An informational meeting for all students will be held during lunch on Wednesday, October 26th, 2020 in front of the auditorium. Applications will be collected at this informational meeting. The application period ends on Wednesday, October 26th.
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 officially reapply this year. They do need to attend the information meeting and submit their intent to continue form.
Please don’t hesitate to contact one of us if you have questions or concerns.
We look forward to a new year of NJHS!
