NJHS Information & Application - Due Friday, March 22, 2019

7th grade students who have a cumulative GPA of 3.6 or higher have been invited to apply for National Junior Honor Society. Students received a blue invitation letter on March 8th. Please download the attached application. Students need to type their responses and submit a printed copy of their application to Mrs. Collins in Room 403. Please visit Mrs. Collins or email rcollins@pylusd.org if you have any questions. All applications are due by Friday, March 22nd.
Take the time to reflect: before choosing to apply, students should determine their level of commitment. Students accepted into NJHS make a commitment to academic success (GPA 3.6 or higher) and they do a total of 20 community service hours over the course of the 8th grade year. NJHS also holds MANDATORY meetings once a month during PRIDE. These meetings focus on leadership development activities.
Being a part of NJHS is not a HUGE extra responsibility but there is a level of commitment if you decide to apply. Kraemer offers so many programs and clubs, consider your current involvement and decide whether or not applying for NJHS is the best choice for you. Is this an opportunity that excites you? What other commitments will you have during PRIDE time? Are you willing to serve your community for twenty hours during your 8th grade year?
