On November 30th Mr. Bermudez held the induction ceremony for the National Junior Honor Society, NJHS. The officers lit candles to represent scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Second year members of NJHS received a badge, and first year members received certificates. To qualify for this prestigious club, students must be either in 7th or 8th grade and have a GPA of 3.75 or higher. It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the NJHS.
This year the JNHS will sponsor several activities, like selling Valentine’s Day carnations, participating in a beach cleanup, and launching a school beautification campaign. On February 8th, NJHS will visit Forgotten Soldiers to help pack care packages for American service men serving overseas. The NJHS is a service club that sets a foundation for a life time of responsible citizenry.
The President for the NJHS is Meghan P.; the Vice-President is Jennifer P.; the Secretary is Nataly R.; the Treasurer is Flavie A., and the Historian is Daniel R.. Palm Springs looks forward to a year of academic leadership from our new and returning NJHS members, led by Mr. Bermudez. ~ Elizabeth A.
