NHS Service projects are announced at monthly meetings, via Instagram, and here on the website at the top of the page.

Toward the end of each semester, the projects fill up quickly. The sooner you sign up for one, the better.
No, there will be no excuses issued. You need to prioritize and plan ahead. You are expected to complete, at minimum, one service project per semester. Members have and continue to successfully balance their activities and National Honor Society; there will be no exceptions.
You cannot have any unexcused absences from meetings. If you have an unexcused absence, you must complete a service project to make up for the meeting. You are only allowed to do this once a semester. A second unexcused absence will result in removal from the society.
Yes. Your school attendance must be good. Students that are on the chronically absent list will first receive a warning that their attendance is below standards. Appearing on the chronically absent list a second time may result in removal from NHS.
If your absence is excused, bring a hard copy of your School Master attendance to Ms. Matin. Ask one of the officers or another member about information you may have missed. Check the website. Do not ask one of the advisors to review all the information you missed.
If your absence is not excused, you will need to complete a second service project in order to make up for the absence. Two unexcused absences from a monthly meeting will result in removal from National Honor Society.
The usual meeting time is every second Tuesday of the month at lunch in the AUX gym. The 2020-2021 meetings will be held on zoom until further notice.
