What is National Junior Honor Society?

The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, N.J.H.S. serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character, and Citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginning in 1929. www.njhs.us

Students in grades 7 and 8 who have a cumulative grade point average of 94.5.

What do NJHS members do?

The goal of Adirondack Central School District's N.J.H.S. is to build leaders and provide community service. The members work throughout the school year to help provide much needed resources such as organizing a food drive to benefit our local food pantry and participating in the Pennies for Patients Program by collecting spare change. Twice a year, N.J.H.S. members make it possible for the middle school students to enjoy the Scholastic Bookfair. The bookfair is a great opportunity for students to build their own libraries as well as providing the middle school library and teacher classrooms with a variety of titles. N.J.H.S. also provides an entertainment opportunity for elementary students and their families by sponsoring the Billy Martin Cole All Star Circus. In addition, the members sell carnations for Valentine's Day, sell refreshments at dances, and spend 10th periods assisting students with homework.
