March 19th meeting

Hello NHS warriors!

We were excited to have our first meeting as your new NHS officers.

During this meeting, we discussed volunteer opportunities. To see the volunteer opportunities, please check the VOLUNTEER menu bar. More information on the letter writing campaign is attached at the bottom of this post.

We now have a basket in Mrs. Smith’s room (E-5) where you can turn in hours. Seniors remember that next month is the last month to turn in your hours.

We also introduced our new committees. Thank you for signing up! Committees are a way for members to feel more like a part of a club, rather than just an honor roll. They look great on a college application!

Volunteer Committee: Ditte, Nicole, Pearl, Hailee

Inductions Committee: Pearl, Martin, Leina, Habiba, Shuyi

Please talk to an NHS Exec Member or send us an email so we can have your contact information. If you are interested but your name is not here just talk to us.

IMPORTANT: Inductions will begin at 6:30pm – 8pm on May 3rd. This is MANDATORY for all members to attend. We will be taking attendance there, and a no show will result in no medal senior year.

NOTE: Seniors, all hours are DUE at the April meeting on the 16th. NO EXEMPTION! All hours required must be in by then!

Below are the best ways to stay connected with NHS to stay updated with our meetings, volunteer opportunities, etc. If you any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us! Contact forms are located below the CONTACT menu bar!

February 14th Meeting (Valentine’s Day)

Hello NHS Warriors!

We’re sorry we had to move the Friday meeting to a Valentine’s day but we wanted to keep you updated that this meeting was an important one, as well as our last meeting as officers.

Just a reminder that hours expiration is a real thing, and we will no longer accept any hour sheets that have expired within the next month of your service. We are doing this because we want to keep all members on the right track of getting your hours done and knowing who needs more opportunities in order to finish your requirements.

Hours Expiration: Hours are due a month from the date of hours you’ve done them.

As we have not fully enforced lately and were lenient, we are going to give a ONE time exception to all the services done in January. All the January hours can be turn in the March meeting. Therefore, all January and February hours need to be in by the March meeting on Monday, March 19th. Even though we have the status tab on the blog, we’re sending out a reminder slip every other month so that you’ll know how many hours you need left, completed, and are required. (EXCEPTIONS: Seniors will receive one this February and March and no more further on.)

IMPORTANT: Seniors and Juniors are to be present at the next MANDATORY CEREMONY for the next NHS inductees membership on Thursday, May 3rd 2018. A set time will be sent out later on the following month, but to give you an average, it’ll be around 6:30pm to 7:30pm. Attendance will be checked, so please be there. This is a MANDATORY, we repeat. No show will result in no medal your Senior year.

At this meeting, we discussed more volunteer opportunities as well give all members an opportunity to voice your opinion in the bylaws and what you don’t agree with it so that we can make the Society better. To see more Volunteer opportunities, please check the Volunteer tab.

As we’ve said in the beginning, this Valentine’s day was our last meeting we hosted, and at the next meeting, you be guide by your new 2018 officers, class of 2019 Paul Mitalipov, Nathan Hernandez, Maria Truong, Cooper Lee, and Nyah Songster.
