Key NHS Dates for upcoming 2013-2014 School Year

posted Jun 20, 2013, 8:02 AM by Elisabeth Melad   [ updated Jul 9, 2013, 5:48 AM by Elisabeth Melad ]

At the start of July, all rising juniors and seniors who have a 3.8 average of higher will be sent a letter notifying them that they are being invited to apply to join the DS chapter of the National Honor Society.
If you have any incomplete grades at the end of the 2012-2013 school year, you will not qualify to apply until all incompletes are resolved.  Please note that if you have an incomplete grade, you will not be receiving the invitation letter in early July, but you will still be able to apply to NHS in the fall once your grades are complete (assuming you have a 3.8 or higher).  The application due date is Wed, 9/11, so you will need to have resolved any and all incomplete grades prior to that date.  All current and prospective NHS members will want to note the key dates below:

Tuesday, July 9, 2013--NHS invitation letters sent out through the mail

Friday, Aug. 30—NHS Informational Session (optional)—7:00 AM


Wednesday 9/11: NHS Application Due
