NJHS Service Committees
NJHS members are required to join a service committee, and committee selections are now available in Canvas (Click sheet join committees in Canvas). NJHS members have until Friday, October 11 to select a service committee to join.
The purpose to a service committee is to 1) promote service throughout our school and community and 2) organize and assist NJHS members in obtaining service hours.
At the first meeting of the school year you will be invited to choose a service committee to become involved with. This committee will be overseen by one of your elected NJHS officials and will also have sub-committee leaders.
The members of each committee will meet periodically to discuss, plan, and implement service opportunities related to their committee topic.
The following are the standards for membership in NJHS at the Lowery Freshman Center:
- Uphold the NJHS pillars of character, leadership, scholarship, and service.
- Maintain an overall grade average of 91%. (Ex: 100 in Band + 82 in Math + 91 in English = overall 91 average; student is maintaining above a 91 grade average) with outstanding/satisfactory conduct grades.
