Do You have a GPA of 3.4 or higher?
If you currently have a GPA of 3.4 or higher and plan on maintaining that for the school year, you may be eligible to join the National Junior Honor Society. In order to join you must also complete 4 hours of approved community service hours. Community Service hours are due Tuesday, April 1, 2014. Students will officially be notified by letter in early February.
Community service forms are to be turned in all together when a minimum of 4 hours is completed to Jackie Dalrymple. 8th graders who were initiated last year and have maintained their 3.4 GPA are still members in good standing. They must continue to maintain their GPA and are required to complete four more hours of community service this year (due on or before Tuesday, April 1, 2014). Those students initiated last year not involved in the ceremony a second time. We support our students in realizing the rewards of scholarship and service.
