SPRING LAKE HEIGHTS — New members of the National Junior Honor Society [NJHS] at Spring Lake Heights Elementary were inducted into the club at the latest board of education meeting.
On Nov. 23, 20 NJHS inductees were called to the stage to recite an induction ceremony script to be officially ushered into the club.
“This club is unique in being that it represents a standard of high academic achievement as well as honorable behavior displayed in and around school.
“In addition to holding those high standards, all members must display the following characteristics: scholarship, leadership, character, service and citizenship,” said Kevin Carew on Nov. 23.
Some of the activities the students will be involved in include helping other students during their freetime in school, organizing school wide projects and helping others in the community.
To qualify for NJHS students must have a 95 or better in core subjects.
“Behaviorally these students are expected to continue to display positive and appropriate behavior in our school and community,” said Mr. Carew.
“I am excited we could come together on this special night to induct all new members this year of the 2021-22 school year.”
