National Honor SocietyDear Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors:Due to the unprecedented circumstances of the beginning of the year, National Honor Society will be extending its deadline for new applications. I, along with the Faculty Council, are aware that students might need more time to collect the pertinent information asked for in the admissions packet, as well as more time to complete service opportunities.All applications for sophomores and juniors ONLY will now be due on January 8th with a spring induction that will be set at a later date. Additionally, students are only required to have seven hours of service in order to apply. All other parts of the application will remain the same.Seniors, if you would still like to apply, your new deadline is October 30th. A quick decision will be made on your applications and, while you will not be formally inducted until the spring, you will receive notice of your acceptance (if you meet the requirements) early enough to participate in the year, as well as add membership to your college applications.For those who have applied already, I have your applications and will hold onto them. There is no need to send them in again. I hope this alleviates any stress and also encourages those who might have been on the fence to apply.I hope your year is off to a great start!Sincerely,Mrs. Lopes
The Selection Process:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- All student information sheets are destroyed after the selection process.
