• National Honor Society

    Dear B-P Students,
     
    I would like to encourage all incoming sophomores, juniors, and seniors interested in applying to the National Honor Society to read the pertinent information written here.  Students must have a 3.0 GPA or higher, be able to demonstrate 15 hours of community service within the past year, as well as demonstrate that they are leaders within their communities.  All applications are due the third Friday in September per the NHS bylaws.
     
    Please read below for the selection criteria.  The student information form, which is linked below, has thorough explanations of all requirements and is due back to Mrs. Lopes in September.
     
    The Selection Process:
    1. All students who are eligible scholastically (i.e., candidates) shall be notified through announcements and encouraged to complete and submit the student information form for further consideration.  These forms can be obtained in June and students have the summer and first 3 weeks of school to complete them.
    2. The faculty council shall review the candidate information forms, faculty input, and other relevant information to determine those who fully meet the selection criteria for membership.  Students MUST completely fill out the form with adult signatures to verify leadership positions and community service hours, as well as provide parent/guardian signatures.  Students must include a reference letter verifying their character and also a student letter advocating for their selection.  All pieces of the application are due on the day advertised on the announcements and posted on the Student Information Sheet.
    3. All decisions of the faculty council are final.  The members of the faculty council are appointed by the principal, but remain anonymous to the school community.
    4. All student information sheets are destroyed after the selection process.
     
    Best of luck and I look forward to working with you!
     
    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Lopes
