    Current 8th graders just received an email regarding the end of the year project! Please respond ASAP!!! 

    Hello NJHS members,

     

                Since we cannot be together at the end of year, we were hoping to post something small about each NJHS 8th grade member on our Instagram and our website. You’re not required to take take part in this, but it is something to help remember our year together, and give the incoming eighth grade NJHS members an idea of what they will be taking part in next year.

    We have put together a three question survey to show your favorite memories from middle school, and the 2019-2020 school year. There is a template attached below to show what the finished product will look like. In addition to the questions, there is a list of some possible answers to refresh your memory.

     As well as these questions, we are asking you to include a picture of yourself.  If you have your school picture available, please attach that with your answers in an email. You can access it from your skyward student profile, or simply take a picture of it if you have it on paper. If you do not have a school picture, please send an appropriate picture of yourself that you do not mind sharing.

    Please email any questions to Sophie (sbecker24@student.gvsd.org), and send your final answers along with your picture to Michela (mbiondi24@student.gvsd.org) by Wednesday, June 3rd.

     

    Thank you,

    Mrs. Search, Mrs. McGovern, Molly Toner, Michela Biondi, and Sophie Becker.

    NJHS Tutoring Program 
    The 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 Projects
    We 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.
    Induction
    Each year there are two Inductions for members into the Ed Off Memorial Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society.  In spring 7th grade students whose candidacy have been accepted are inducted and in winter 8th grade students whose candidacy have been accepted are inducted.  To be eligible to receive a letter of candidacy a student needs to have maintained a GPA of 3.75.  Students will receive there letter of candidacy during the school day, most commonly at lunch, from their guidance counselor.  Any student with a specific question about eligibilty should please contact your guidance counselor or Mrs. Search at annsearch@gvsd.org. The Induction Ceremony dates are listed on the district calendar each year.
     
     
    Meetings
    General Membership Meetings will be held before school at least 2 times this year.  It is your responsibility as members to listen for announcements and make the meetings.  The officers will meet once a cycle during lunch, on day 4.  As we get involved with more projects we will invite members to join us for those lunches to help with the planning and implementation of our work.  Check here or in Mrs. Search's room or listen to the announcements for information.
