There is a 5-hour minimum required at the end of the first semester and then the total being due by May 5th, 2020. NHS will not accept work done primarily to benefit a club, church, or organization of which the student is a member. NHS service must directly benefit NHS, the school, or community. Fundraising for your organization will not be considered community service. I only accept bulk hours in quantities of 2 at a time. If any questions or concerns arise, contact me! Service is a pillar of NHS!

    3) Track it Forward - At the BETA meeting on Sept 5th afterschool with Mrs. Moore, you will be instructed how to sign up and use TIF. We will be using it together and hours will be selected for use with either BETA or NHS. You must be signed up on TIF by September 11th. 

    4) Election of Officers – all officers are expected to be at as many events as possible!! If you are interested in signing up for an office, acknowledge in on the Google Form.

Once the ballot has been made, I will run the election completely through Remind and Google Forms.
