The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is a National Organization whose purpose is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulate a desire to render service, promote leadership, develop character, and encourage citizenship in the students of Holy Spirit Episcopal School.
Student leaders in fifth through eighth grade work to make HSES and our community better through by giving of their time, compassion, expertise and energy. Various projects and activities are held throughout the year; many functions are held in conjunction with NJHS.
Both StuCo and NJHS members at HSES participate in many school and church activities throughout the year.
MIDDLE SCHOOL COMMUNITY SERVICE PROGRAM
To develop an understanding and desire for service to the community, both local and beyond, each Holy Spirit MS student is asked to provide Community Service hours during the school year. 15 hours are required by each MS student, though many students go well beyond that goal, in some cases reaching 300-400 hours in their service to the community. Several schools that Holy Spirit feeds into take an account of these hours when looking at a student’s middle school extracurricular activities during the admissions process.
The forms for the Community Service program can be found on the HSES website under Life at HSES and Information for Students. Each act of service requires a form to be signed and dated by the individual(s) who supervised the activity, the date, and the amount of time given to the activity. There are also several questions to be answered by the student. Each form should be completed and submitted to the Community Service Program Director. When students complete a form, please turn it in as soon as possible. All community service hours turned in after the third Friday in April will roll over to the following school year and will not count towards the May graduation/awards ceremony.
Recognition is given to students who provide 15-50 hours of service. The President’s Volunteer Service Awards are given to students who complete 50-100 hours and beyond. These awards include a pin, a letter from the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, and a personalized certificate of achievement.
