                                 Farmington Junior Honor Society                                                                                                                     Next meeting is immediately after school on Thursday, December 20  from 2:40-3:30                                                                                                 

The East chapter of the Farmington Junior Honor Society is a service club in which students commit to serving at least 20 hours of out-of-school volunteer work.  Our club is intended to encourage students to develop a strong sense of community service, scholarship, and dedication. Students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades also participate by attending after-school club meetings, generally scheduled on the fourth Thursday of each month.


Our monthly meetings are usually held on the fourth Thursday of each month.  Mrs. Ninoska Wiltse and Mrs. Mary George are the club sponsors. Our new meeting classroom location will be announced following our informational meeting to be held the second week of school-- during the school day. Monthly meetings begin immediately after school and rides must be at the front of the school to pick up members promptly at 3:30 p.m. Students will meet their drivers when they exit the building. Meeting information will be announced during daily announcements and through the East Listserv. 


In the springtime, we check to see if students have met the requirements of at least 20 service hours and have excellent academic effort and citizenship.  Then we invite those qualifying members to the induction ceremony which will be held on the evening of May 7, 2019.


We start up the club in September. Previously inducted members and new applicants will attend our first official after-school meeting on Thursday, September 27 from 2:40 to 3:30. Further information will be provided in the daily announcements and Parent Listservs. New member applications and previously inducted members' letters of intent to participate are due by Tuesday, October 9, 2018. Documentation of service hours will be handed in all at once by March 27, 2019 to give us enough time to invite qualifying members.



See the "Schedule" link, at the left, for the official meeting and activity dates. Students will be required to fulfill requirements that can be found on the link at the left "Student Expectations", and these requirements are also provided within the documents that are on the link "FJHS Documents", at the left. Volunteer hours can be fulfilled in many ways.  All students must have parental supervision and permissions to volunteer safely outside of school. Students will not be supervised outside of school by school personnel.  It is important that students have safe adult supervision during outside of school volunteer opportunities

Mrs. Wiltse and Mrs. George look forward to an excellent year for the FJHS candidates and previously inducted members.

****We are looking for a parent to manage the food portion of the After Glow party--a celebration after the Induction ceremony (May 7) and to be in charge of the set-up and clean-up of the food during this event. Please contact Mrs. Wiltse at ninoska.wiltse@fpsk12.net or Mrs. George at mary.george@fpsk12.net .


IMPORTANT NOTE: NUT RESTRICTED SCHOOL


East has students with life threatening nut allergies and is,
therefore, nut restricted. Please do not send your student to school
with food items containing nut ingredients. Product labels that say,
"May contain nuts" or something similar should be enjoyed at home and
not brought to school. Please see the following link for the district
policy and FAQ about the nut restrictive policy: Nut Restrictive FAQ
<http://www.farmington.k12.mi.us/pdfs/nut_restricted_qa.pdf>
 Chick peas and other legumes are fine to bring to school and
consume.
