National Junior Honors Society
The Mother Mary Magdalen Lyne Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society serves the community of St. Gregory the Great school and parish as well as the St. Agnes parish through its community service projects, such as peer tutoring, monthly food drives and Christmas toy collection. Members from 7th and 8th represent students who exemplify the five core values of NJHS; service, character, citizenship, leadership and scholarship.
Students are recommended for membership by their teachers and upon receiving the necessary recommendations they as ask to complete an information package. This package allows them to highlight their achievements and express in their own words why membership into the Society is important to them. Candidates are reviewed by a faculty review panel and only those students who exemplify the core values are allowed membership.
Once membership is granted students must maintain a 90 average and an S or better in conduct. It is the expectation of all our members that they display our core values in the classroom, extra-curricular activities and throughout their day. They are leaders in our school.
Membership drives occur twice a year, once in the fall for 7th and 8th grade students then again in the spring for 6th and 7th graders.
