National Junior Honor Society’s spring application drive has started. Students must be in their second semester of sixth grade for consideration through 8th grade. Applications can be downloaded at this link or picked up from Mrs. Wierenga on the Team Team. Applications are due Wednesday, March 28th to Mrs. Wierenga or Mrs. Pearsall.
Membership is based on the five pillars of NJHS:
Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence.
This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic engagement; has a high regard for freedom and justice; respects the U.S. form of government; respects the law for all citizens at the local, state, and federal levels; and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility in activities such as scouting, community organizations, or school clubs.
