UPDATE: FOMS National Junior Honor Society 2016
Due to the extension of the third marking period, the selection process for the
National Junior Honor Society has been delayed. The necessary GPA
information will not be available until April 25. For all current
sixth and seventh grade students whose cumulative GPA is 3.5 or higher, a
letter and an application will be distributed on Tuesday, May 3. The GPA
constitutes 20% of the requirements for admission into NJHS. The
remaining components on the application are for the NJHS pillars of Service,
Leadership, Citizenship and Character. (All specifics and regulations
regarding selection of an applicant are viewable on the NJHS website.)
For any student receiving the preliminary letter, it then becomes his/her
responsibility to submit the detailed application. Those applications are
due to Mrs. Janoske, NJHS Sponsor, Monday, May 9 with no
exceptions. The five-member Faculty Council will be meeting on Tuesday,
May 10 and Wednesday, May 11 to make the final membership selections.
