The National Honor Society Requirements

national_honor imageThe National Honor Society is a nationally affiliated organization established in 1921 for outstanding and distinguished high school students. Each chapter within the organization, as recognized by the National Council, establishes its rules for membership based on a student’s outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four components are the foundation for the organization.

In order to gain academic entry into the Douglas Byrd High School National Honor Society, a sophomore or junior must attain a minimum 3.7 (3.65) Weighted Grade Point Average. To maintain academic membership, a student must have a minimum 3.5 (3.45) Weighted Grade Point Average. If at any point a student’s Grade Point Average falls below a 3.45, then that student may be placed on academic probation. Additionally, if for any reason a student is placed on out of school suspension or expelled, that student may have their National Honor Society membership revoked.

Seniors in the NHS meet on the first Thursdays of every month in the downstairs media center immediately after school. Juniors meet on the second Thursdays of every month in the downstairs media center.  Regular monthly meeting activities include the following:

Wellness Tip: Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

Image of several children running through grass with caption of Childhood Obesity Awareness MonthOne in three children in the United States is overweight or obese. Childhood obesity puts kids at risk for health problems that were once seen only in adults, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

The good news is that childhood obesity can be prevented. In honor of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, CCS encourages your family to make healthy changes together.

  • Get active outside: Walk around the neighborhood, go on a bike ride, or play basketball at the park.
  • Limit screen time: Keep screen time (time spent on the computer, watching TV, or playing video games) to 2 hours or less a day.
  • Make healthy meals: Buy and serve more vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain foods.

Taking small steps as a family can help your child stay at a healthy weight.
