The English Honor Society is Clarkstown North's annual event honoring students who have excelled in an area of English, either by committing effort, skill, and hours at a North event, or by winning an award or publishing work. 


To get in to the English Honor Society, 
you will need to participate in English activities throughout the year.

You will be given the opportunity to apply to EHS starting mid year. There will be a Google form to fill out and you will need to get adviser signatures if needed.  If you meet all of the requirements, you will be given an invitation. EHS is in June every year. 

EHS counts for one year; you need to reapply every year. 

Here are the requirements to get in. Please email Karen Czajkowski, department chair, if you have any questions. kczajkowski@ccsd.edu
