  1. Texas A&M Trip - Friday, November 3rd, 2017 - I need all students to fill out the following form.  They will indicate which dinner combo they would like to order.  All burgers come with condiments and veggies on the side.  Students can also make requests for the chaperone group they'd like to be in, though there is only one short time during the day that we divide up in to groups.  The remainder of the day we'll be traveling together as a large group.  The main use of the chaperone groups is for checking in.

  2. Service Hours - 15 service hours from summer to Christmas break 2017 should be turned in before the end of fall semester.  They can be turned in online using the form on our club website under the service hours link or by printing the form on that link and turning in by hand to Mr. Mayes.  Hours can include any service you do as long as it doesn't primarily benefit your immediate family and you aren't paid.  Many will turn in hours for camps they help with, VBS, mission trips, putting out flags for 4th of July, helping distribute backpacks, church activities, helping in a nursery... etc.

  3. Football Parking Project at the Rock 2017 - We need volunteers to sign up and help at the Cleburne varsity football games.  We are in charge of guarding the front parking lot an hour and a half before the game, until half-time, at which time you can either enter the game for free, or your parents can pick you up.  We have a sign-up sheet available here.  We need 4 students and a parent for each evening. When a parent of a student volunteers, that student will receive service hours on behalf of their parents. Meet at the east end of "The Rock" football stadium front parking lot, near St. Marks Methodist Church at the entrance to the parking lot.  You may call or text Mr. Mayes at 817-933-4495.  Mr. Mayes will be there each evening to assist with this project.  He will bring chairs and water.

REQUIREMENTS
 

At the end of April of the 7th grade year, candidates are invited to join NJHS.  In order to receive an invitation, you must meet the Scholarship (maintained a 90% average for all your classes/electives, an 80% average for all Pre-AP/Advanced classes, for the 1st - 5th six-week grading periods) and Character requirements (never received ISS and maintained a 90 or above in conduct for the 1st - 5th six-week grading periods).

 

After meeting these first two requirements, students who qualify will then be evaluated by each of their teachers using a 0-5 scale in each of the following areas: citizenship, service, leadership, character.  Students who have a 16 average or higher will be inducted into the National Junior Honor Society.  Please Note: Grades alone do not guarantee membership in NJHS.  Each student must also have a 16 average or higher from the teachers and staff to become a member.

 

Official membership into the SMS NJHS happens when you pay your $15 dues and attend the Induction Ceremony in May.  Until this ceremony and after this ceremony, you are expected to continually uphold the qualities of an NJHS member which are: Scholarship, Character, Service, Leadership, and Citizenship.
