What is the National Junior Honor Society?
NJHS is a middle school student organization with the purpose to promote the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship within a school
How do I become a member of NJHS?
Each Spring an application will be given to those that meet the academic requirements. The candidate will complete the application, essay, and teacher recommendations form and turn them into Mrs. Swanson.
Selection for membership is by a faculty review of applicants and is based on outstanding scholarship, citizenship, character, leadership, and service. Once selected, members have the responsibility to continue to demonstrate these qualities. Members who resign or are dismissed are no longer eligible for membership or its benefits and they may not reapply for membership. Once selected members will be expected to attend meetings and participate in NJHS service projects, activities, and fundraisers.
Selection of Members:
To be eligible for membership the candidate must be a second-semester sixth-grader OR a seventh or eighth grader at Mapleton Middle School.
The selection of members to the chapter shall be by a majority vote of the faculty council.
All faculty members will review the applicants’ names. Students who do not promote service, leadership, citizenship, and character in the classroom will not be considered for membership.
Scholarship Requirements: (This will be changing to account for grade card changes). Will be updated soon!
All applicants must have a 3 as their overall score for each core class on the report card from the first three quarters.
