          I am very excited to be offering the opportunity to recognize students with high academic achievement into the National Junior Honor Society.  Once you become a member, your active status depends on you maintaining the grade requirements and doing the service hours.  We will have the induction ceremony in the spring of 2018. 

To join:

*         You must complete at least 12 service hours and make updates throughout the year to your digital service portfolio.  Link to portfolio is due to Mrs. Parker by Monday, February 26th, 2018. 

*         Turn in a copy of your 1st semester grades and 3rd nine weeks grade to Mrs. Parker 

*         Pay dues of $20.00 by February 28th, 2018.

Membership requirements:

·         Student must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA for each of the first 2 nine weeks in a school. Invitation and induction into the National Junior Honor Society will take place during 2ndsemester.

·         A student must preferably have no grade below a “B” in any class to be considered for membership.

·         Once a member, a student must participate in club service projects and activities.

·         A student must represent the ideals of the club and chapter by consistently exhibiting character, credible academic achievement, leadership and commendable attitude, both in and out of school.  Membership will be determined by the recommendation of a faculty committee after a student meets the academic criteria.  Office referrals that result in Out Of School Suspension or more than one In School Suspension will cause a student to be excluded from membership.

·         A student must complete 12 hours of documented community service.  These activities should benefit other individuals or organizations around the school, community or religious institution.  The documentation needs to be completed and signed by a representative of the organization that benefited from the service.  Documentation must be uploaded into a digital service portfolio before a student will be considered eligible for membership.

·         A student who fails to meet the above academic requirements after induction will be placed on probation and given 1 nine weeks to correct the deficiency.  If the correction is not made or the student has another academic lapse during the same school year, his/her name will be removed from the membership roster.  A student that fails to demonstrate acceptable character or behavior will be removed from the membership roster if a majority of the faculty deem that appropriate.

Service hours ideas:

·         Rake leaves for an elderly neighbor or friend.  Have your parents sign the documentation form.

·         Help set up and clean up from holiday parties or meals at your religious institution.  Have your Paster, Rabbi or Priest sign the form.

·         Make cards or tray decorations for people who get Meals On Wheels or who are in nursing homes.  Have your parents sign the form.

·         Collect food from friends and relatives and take it to Manna Food Bank, Hearts for Hands or the Giving Tree at the Mall. Have your parents sign form.

·         Volunteer at the school in one of your teacher’s rooms to staple papers, clean the classroom, etc.  Have your teacher sign the form.

·         Help an elderly neighbor work inside or outside his or her home.  Have your parents sign the form.

·         Call a nursing home and volunteer to help and visit with the residents.  You can read, talk, play the piano, etc. at the nursing home.  You need to call the nursing home before you go.  Have a nurse at the home sign your form.

·         Cook a meal for an elderly neighbor or a busy working mom or dad.  (NOT your own mom!)  Have your parents sign the form. 

·         Volunteer at Brother Wolf or Friends for Animals.

·         With your parents help, you can go and work at places like ABCCM, Manna Food Bank and other service organizations.  (Many of these will not let you help at their facilities without an adult.)

Our 1st informational meeting for parents and students will be Thursday, September 28th at 6:00 in the cafeteria.
