The Morehead City Middle School National Junior Honor Society is a service organization for outstanding students at MCMS. The advisor is Ms. Lewis. Active members will receive a code for the Google Classroom for NJHS so they can stay up to date on all NJHS events.

The main purposes of the NJHS are to:

  1. Create enthusiasm for scholarship
  2. Stimulate a desire to render service
  3. Promote leadership
  4. Encourage responsible citizenship
  5. Develop character in students

Requirements for Candidates that are eligible for Induction to this chapter must:

  1. Be a member of the rising 7th or 8th grade class.
  2. Have at least a 90% average for the year in every class.
  3. Meet the requirements of service, leadership and be of good character. (Five hours of service must be submitted with your application.)

Selection Process:

  1. The NJHS Advisors will receive grade reports for the school year to determine which MCMS students meet the requirements. These students become potential candidates.
  2. Potential candidates will be given a packet that they need to fill out. Students MUST turn the packet in by the deadline to the NJHS advisor. This paper work will include 2 teacher recommendations for membership and at least 5 documented volunteer hours.
  3. New members will be notified of their acceptance into the MCMS School National Junior Honor Society by a letter of congratulations that is sent home to their parents.
  4. A formal induction ceremony will be planned for the fall semester and parents and family members are encouraged to attend this ceremony. Once selected, members have the responsibility to continue to maintain the qualities of NJHS.

In order to maintain membership students will be required to:

  • Maintain at least a 90% average in all classes.
  • No unsatisfactory grade in WIN class.
  • No ISS or OSS discipline referrals.  OSS will result in immediate dismissal from NJHS. ISS will result in a probationary period for one Quarter. If a 2nd infraction occurs it will result in immediate dismissal.
  • School district attendance requirements must be met.
  • Community service hours (10 hours) must be completed by April 21, 2023. Documentation will be required and hours must be turned in to advisors.

Current members who do not maintain a 90% cumulative average for all classes will be placed on probation for one 9 week grading period.  Students must raise their cumulative average in all classes back to 90% to be removed from probation.  If they do not raise the cumulative average for grades to at least 90%, they will be removed from NJHS.
