Where to buy your ticketsNJHS Tutoring ProgramThe tutoring program run during 8th period is our biggest service to our school. If you are available during period 8 (not in a music ensemble or Student Council or other previously scheduled club) you will be assigned to tutor by Mrs. Search in room 102. As requests from teachers and students are made you will be matched up with one or more students in need of academic support. The teacher requesting the tutor will help you make a plan to help the student(s) and you will work with the students' teachers to support him/her any way you can. You will receive a new schedule detailing the day and location that tutoring is taking place, but you will want to stop in room 102 prior to the start of your tutoring assignment (before school or lunch work well) to get the information on the student and subject. Don't worry, you will be able to help your fellow students and have a good time in the process! Please see the NJHS Tutoring Update letter sent out through school wires for more details.If you are interested in being set up with a peer tutor from the NJHS, please clilck on the Tutoring Form, complete and return to Mrs. Search either in her mailbox or in room 102.Service ProjectsWe will meet as a group to outline the year, but we are always interested in your ideas for service projects that the NJHS can be involved with as a whole. Check back to see what activities we will be involved in.InductionEach year there are two Inductions for members into the Ed Off Memorial Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society.
