    The NJHS is alive and well in Woodstown Middle School!

    Our organization runs fun activites like our teacher costume contest and also sells Kindness grams to make students feel good about themselves.   Students in the NJHS who have an A average in a particular subject, are invited to help other students in the Middle School through peer tutoring.

    In order to be invited to join this national organization, students from grade 7 have to have a cumulative average of a 93. 

     Once a student is invited (in early May), invitees have until mid-June to turn in a few items to signify their interest:

    Those items include:

    2 teacher recommendation forms

     Parent/Student Sign off sheet, with rules, etc.

     $12 fee that goes to the National organization

     

     The following can be completed in the summer, and will be due by Nov. 1

    10 documented Service Hours: Service hours means any work done voluntarily (not paid), and not part of another club (ex: if a student is doing a roadside cleanup for Student Council, those hours cannot count towards Service Hours for membership).

    ***Great ways to get service hours include volunteering for Fall Festival, or peer tutoring. 

    Sign off form

     Once initial invitations go out, forms will be available online for you to access if a student misplaces his/hers.

    Final letters will be sent home in Mid-November, pending approval by the committee. NJHS Induction ceremony will be at

    the end of November

    Benefits of becoming an NJHS member: Whereas a student in NJHS does not mean the student will automatically be inducted into the NHS in WHS, it does provide excellent stepping stones to that goal. Colleges look for students who not only have good grades, but they also look at students who have given back to their communities with Service Hours. Many scholarships for post-high school programs offer scholarships based on service as well.
