National Junior Honor Society
The Cathy Conroy Memorial Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) upholds high standards of scholarship, service, leadership , citizenship and character. Your sponsor this year is Ms. Christine Babao.
NJHS members are required to complete 20 hours of service to be recognized as a member in good standing. Students who meet this requirement will receive a certificate at the end of the 8th grade year.
Each spring, 7th grade students are inducted into NJHS and participate in the club for the remainder of 7th grade year and the following 8th grade year. All 7th grade students will be invited to have their grades reviewed by the 7th grade counselor to determine eligibility for application. This invitation will be extended after the first semester of 7th grade ends. Invitations typically go out late February. Once a student returns the invitation, grades will be reviewed. In order to receive an application, a student has to have a final 6th grade report card of "A's" with no more than 2 "B's" and 7th grade, 1st semester grades of "A's" with no more than 2 "B's." Students who meet this eligibility requirement will be invited to apply and must complete an application. The application will include an essay, teacher recommendation regarding character and leadership, and documentation of community service. Select staff review the application and use a rubric to determine if membership will be offered.
