National Junior Honor Society
Did you know that TCS has an active chapter of National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)? NJHS is open to rising 7th and 8th grade students who maintain a 3.75 cumulative GPA in the current school year. NJHS elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their academic accomplishments but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. As such, NJHS chapters and students are in schools that care not only about student achievement, but also community engagement. NJHS students and their peers volunteer in their communities at the highest rates and make connecting with and serving within the community a priority. The Christ School chapter has currently contributed this year:
- 300 hours of school/community service
- $500+ in charitable donations to The School of Nazaret in the Dominican Republic
- 27 Thanksgiving baskets of food to local causes
And the school year is not over yet!
TCS National Junior Honor Society members have been presented with an opportunity to apply for the 2019-20 Outstanding Achievement Award which recognizes them for exemplary leadership and rewards them with $500 in a 529 college savings plan!
