NJHS is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. Our goal is to encourage an enthusiasm for learning; to serve our community and school; to promote leadership; to encourage responsible citizenship; and to develop character in the students of HMS.
How to become a member:
Students with a 3.3 GPA will receive an invitation to complete a candidate form in the second semester of their 7th grade and 8th grade years.
After receiving an invitation students can complete the candidate form showcasing their character, citizenship, scholarship, service, and leadership; including two teacher/sponsor recommendation forms.
The Faculty Council then votes on each candidate. A candidate must receive majority vote of the council to be initiated into the organization.
Expectations of Members:
Members are expected to earn 30+ points each marking period for various activities. Students will record these on a point sheet given to them by the sponsors and turn them in each marking period. Failure to turn in completed point sheets could result in probation. This is not to scare members or to find ways to punish students, but to help make sure that students are involved and making the most of their time in the organization. Students can receive 1 - 5pts for meetings, NJHS school activities, service (with the chapter and separate), straight A's, participation in school activities (athletics, UIL, recycle club, etc.).
Some of the events/activities our chapter participates in are:
