NJHS

 The National Junior Honor Society bases its membership on academic achievement and excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. At the end of the 3rd term in 7th grade, applications are given to those students who have achieved a 3.5 GPA or above and exhibited outstanding citizenship. The induction ceremony for candidates who are selected is held near the end of the 7th grade school year.

8th grade NJHS members are required to:
~ Maintain a 3.5 GPA or above
~ Earn Excellent and Good citizenship
~ Complete 25 hours of community service **
~ Be a role model in all areas of the educational community
~ Attend all meetings and NJHS events

**Community Service Forms are available on the Informational board outside the cafeteria. Letters from community organizations or their representatives are also acceptable to document service hours.

Please note: Failure to meet the academic or citizenship expectations will result in probation for one marking period. At the end of the probationary time, membership will be terminated if the student has not resolved the problem. In addition, behavior resulting in a disciplinary referral may be considered as grounds for removal from NJHS.

Additional Info

NJHS is excited to get this school year rolling! We have many planned and highly anticipated projects. We are looking forward to the Angelfish Holiday Program, a reverse candy and pencil gram for parents to send to kids, supporting a platoon of soldiers, and a personal needs drive. Committee members are working hard to make sure all projects are a success.

AngelFISH, as you may be wondering, is a program that is run by the Oxford/Orion FISH.  This group organizes gift collection for children in need in our community.  Our group will be adopting at least 6 children over the holiday.   Each NJHS member will donate $5.00 to go toward purchasing gifts for the adopted children.  Members are also organizing a Penny War competition in the building to help raise funds to adopt more children as well as to purchase items for care packages for a platoon of soldiers we hope to adopt.  Please pay close attention to Dragon Dateline for more information regarding both of these programs.

Members are also working hard to organize a reverse candy and pencil gram for parents to send kids.  This event will take place during Parent/Teacher Conferences.  Parents will have the opportunity to buy a pencil and sucker for $1.00 that will be delivered to their child during STAR with a special message of encouragement or celebration for a job well done. 

As for personal needs drive, this event will take place sometime after the December break.  Members are currently working on organizing this personal needs drive. 

NJHS members are also working to keep the NJHS bulletin boards up to date.  The Public Relations group is currently working on the board that is located in the glass hallway and in front of the cafeteria. Both boards will be regularly updated with important information about NJHS activities, committees, and fundraisers. Members should make sure to view these boards when possible to remain updated.

Despite having terrific plans for the year, we are still accepting ideas and thoughts for activities or fundraisers. If you have an idea, please contact Mrs. Parker or Mrs. Wood, the NJHS Supervisors, or Dominic Batoha the Public Relations Committee Chair.  NJHS is looking forward to making this year a success for our community!
