REVISED  CRITERIA for CURRENT 7TH GRADE STUDENTS
2019-2020 School Year

 

Membership in the NJHS at Charles DeWolf Middle School will be open to seventh graders who meet the following membership criteria at the end of the FOURTH MARKING PERIOD:

Maintained a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.60 in academic (social studies, language arts, math, science and Spanish) subjects, with no grade below a B- in any subject for ALL marking periods of the 2019-2020 school year.

Demonstrated outstanding scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship. 

Accumulated no more than six tardies.

Accumulated no detentions related to disruptive behavior or academic dishonesty.

Performed eight hours of documented community service from a recognized organization from 9/1/2019-4/24/2020.   **DUE TO THE SCHOOL CLOSURE, STUDENTS WILL HAVE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 TO COMPLETE THE COMMUNITY SERVICE REQUIREMENT. THIS REQUIREMENT IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS NEEDED, DEPENDING ON CONDITIONS IN SEPTEMBER 2020*

Completed at least three marking periods of the 7th grade year at CDW (unless student moves into district & has been inducted as a member in another district).

AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR8TH GRADE students with GPAs of at least 3.6 will be identified and asked to submit an application and teacher recommendation forms to be considered for membership.  Please note that seventh grade pre-algebra and algebra grades are weighted by .5 (meaning an A equals 4.5 quality points, rather than 4.0).   An induction ceremony for accepted EIGHTH grade students will occur in OCTOBER, 2020, DEPENDING ON SCHOOL CONDITIONS AT THAT TIME.

Membership to the NJHS is not automatic.  Once a member of the NJHS, if a student’s GPA falls below a 3.7, or if he/she receives a report card grade below a B- in any subject or fails to complete required service or projects, students are automatically on probation.  If any of these infractions occurs again, the student will be dismissed from the NJHS for failing to maintain any of the criteria for selection.  Additionally, students who do not participate in required service projects during the school year, and/or fail to complete the required 16 hours of community service during the school year will be dismissed.


The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier student recognition program.  CDW joins more than 20,000 Honor Society chapters across the nation recognizing outstanding students in the community.
