Honors Assemblies

Honors Assemblies are scheduled for three times a year to recognize academic honors, student awards and athletic participation.

Honors Criteria – Grades 5-8

1st Honors: 3.6 – 4.0
2nd Honors: 3.0 – 3.5
3rd Honors: 2.9

Honors are calculated based on the number of times the subject meets per week and the point value for each grade (A-4 points, B – 3 points, C – 2 points).

National Junior Honor Society

Students in grades 6-8 who achieve a grade point average of 3.0 or better are invited to submit an application to become a member of the National Junior Honor Society. This application asks the students to identify examples of leadership, service and character (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship). The application is signed by the student and the parent. The applications are reviewed by the Faculty Council and students who are successful are invited to join the NJHS at the next Honors’ Assembly.
