National Junior Honor Society
NJHS is a prestigious organization, providing leadership opportunities for students who demonstrate excellence in four areas: Citizenship, Scholarship, Leadership, and Character.
The application deadline has been extended to February 11, 2019 and requirements for volunteer hours have also been amended to account for the cancellation of activities on the ice day. The amended requirements for volunteer hours are:
- As school was cancelled last Friday, so was the Bayshore Luau, which many students were planning to help out at to get their hours; it has been rescheduled for Feb. 15.
- Some students are acting as tour guides for the elementary tours of our building these next two weeks; those hours are applicable for candidacy.
- We're holding a Family Night Dance on Wed., Feb. 13 from 6:30-8:00 PM. Students can volunteer to help set-up, run an event, or help with clean-up to get their hours.
Students helping at the luau, the school dance, or as a tour guide may turn in their community service form on Feb. 19; the rest of their paperwork should be turned in on Feb. 11.
The Anchorage School District Middle School Handbook provides students with rules, guidelines, and procedures for many things. All students should read the handbook and be familiar with what it contains. Use the link on the left to access a digital version of the handbook.
