All Pasco County schools and offices will reopen on Monday, October 3rd. Power has been fully restored to the schools that lost power during the storm, and no schools suffered significant damage. This is our final update.

Membership

All members must maintain a 3.0 GPA and complete 20 community service hours a year. If a student falls below a 3.0 GPA, they will be placed on probation. If they cannot bring up their GPA in the allotted time, they will be removed from NJHS. If a student does not complete 20 community service hours by the last day of school, they will be removed from NJHS

National Junior Honor Society chapters are guided by the Five Pillars: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Citizenship, and Character. You must be invited to join the National Junior Honor Society and these Pillars are used to select our members.

The GPA’s of all 6th and 7th graders will be pulled. Any student that has over a 3.0 GPA will be invited to attend an informational meeting with Mrs. Jeffcott and the faculty council.

Community Service

Is described as an event or task that you do not get paid for. This includes volunteering, doing yard work, or any service outside of your regular duties. If a student performs an IN SCHOOL service project, it does not have to be recorded. Any other community service project must be written on the Community Service Hours Sheet. Parents may not be the supervising adult for a community service projects.
