Elm 7th Graders Inducted into National Junior Honor Society

Logo of the National Honor Society

Elm Middle School's chapter of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) welcomed 27 new members during an induction ceremony held Tuesday, April 30, in the school gym.

The NJHS is open to students who have met five criteria:

► Scholarship
► Service
► Leadership
► Character
► Citizenship

Students must have been enrolled in Elm Middle School for a full semester before they become eligible for consideration.

The basic scholarship requirement is a cumulative average of B or better. Students must demonstrate appropriate conduct, and they can have no suspensions from school (in-house or out-of-school suspensions).

Academically eligible candidates are notified and informed that for further consideration they must complete the Student Activity Information Form (SAIF), in which they are asked to outline their accomplishments in the areas of service, leadership, character and citizenship.

All faculty members are invited to submit comments about how well any of the candidates meet NJHS criteria.

Selection is made by a faculty council consisting of five Elm staff members.

The council reviews the SAIF and the comments submitted for each candidate. Candidates receiving a majority vote are inducted into the chapter.

NJHS is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle school students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929.

Membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

Each year Elm’s NJHS chapter completes one or more community service projects in which all the members of the chapter are involved.

Projects can be oriented toward improving student leadership, working with and learning about senior citizens, providing some learning about other cultures or performing some school service.
