National Elementary Honor Society

 
The National Elementary Honor Society, "NEHS", 
is a prestigious national organization.
Membership is open to those students who meet
the required standards in two areas of
initial evaluation: scholarship (academic achievement)
and responsibility.
 
General standards for selection are established
by the national office of NEHS and have been
revised to meet the needs of
our school and strategic goals.
 
Students are selected to be members of NEHS
by a Faculty Council, appointed by the principal
and supervised by an additional member
of the faculty serving as the chapter adviser.
 
Students in the fourth and fifth grade
are eligible for membership.
 
For the scholarship criterion, a student
must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0
or better on a 4.0 scale.
 
Those students who meet this criterion
are invited to complete a Candidate’s Form
that provides the Faculty Council with
evidence of the candidate’s responsibility
at home, at school, and the community.
 
The Candidate’s form is carefully reviewed
by the Faculty Council to determine membership.
A majority vote of the council
is necessary for selection.


A formal induction ceremony is held at the school
to recognize all newly selected members.
Once inducted, members are required
to maintain the same level of performance (or better)
in all the criteria that led to their selection.
This obligation includes regular attendance
at chapter meetings held monthly during the year,
and participation in other
chapter service projects and activities.
 
Students or parents who have questions
regarding the selection process or
membership obligations can contact the chapter adviser.
