Avon Middle School North established a chapter of the National Junior Honor Society in the Fall of 2019. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
Five main purposes have guided chapters of NJHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; to encourage responsible citizenship; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter.
NJHS nominations at AMSN are based on a variety of factors, such as GPA, data, classroom performance, and multiple teachers recommending students based on the NJHS criteria of Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Citizenship, and Character. If a student is nominated, he/she must take the initiative to apply, obtain another adult recommendation, and commit to the NJHS criteria if selected.
In order to qualify for membership in Avon Middle School North's Chapter of the National Honor Society, students must:
Have and maintain a 3.5 GPA
If a student has a 3.5 GPA or higher, they will be invited to apply for consideration of membership after the first semester of 7th grade. Letters of invitation and applications will be distributed to eligible students. Only those who receive applications may apply; however, if all of the criteria are met and a student does not receive an application, please contact Mrs. Phillips by March 1st.
Application must be fully completed, signed, and returned on time to be considered.
As members of NJHS, students must:
Attend at least 50% of the meetings for the year
Complete a minimum of 20 service hours throughout the school year. Hours must be documented and submitted on time.
Pay dues in the amount of $15 that covers national membership and NJHS t-shirt
Meeting Dates: August 21, September 18, October 30, November 20, December 11, January 22, February 12, March 11, April 15, May 13
All meetings begin at 8:30am
Each member is required to submit a minimum of 10 service hours per semester for a total of 20 hours for the school year. The form to submit hours is linked in the NJHS Schoology course. Volunteer hours can be anything that is completed outside of the school day for someone else. Volunteer hours for work completed for family members will not be accepted. You may submit hours that are completed for other clubs as long as they are not completed during the regular school day.
Students must maintain a 3.5 GPA to remain in NJHS
National Honor Society members are expected to uphold the pillars of the chapter: Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service. If a student does not fulfill any of the requirements stated above (minimum meeting attendance and volunteer hours), he/she may be removed from NJHS without begin placed on probation.
The mission of the North Fitness Club is to help students get into the best shape of their life, both physically and mentally. This club is for those who have a high interest in weightlifting and are serious about improving their mental health. We will meet after school every Tuesday and Thursday beginning in September. Students will learn proper lifting techniques used in the weight room, workout routines, and nutritional habits to better live a healthy lifestyle. Whatever your fitness goals are, let us know!
Permission forms must be filled out for this group - Mr. Tudor and Mr. Hawk have limited space, so students will be notified if they are accepted into the group.
