National Honor Society:

The National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) was established in 2008 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals(NASSP) in partnership with the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP).  NEHS recognizes students in both public and nonpublic elementary schools for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated personal responsibility. Through NEHS, students provide meaningful service to the school and community and develop essential leadership skills. NEHS supports these purposes by strengthening the lives of our nation's elementary students and the schools in which they are enrolled.

The National Elementary Honor Society chapter of Barnette Elementary is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to those students who meet the required standards in two areas of initial evaluation: scholarship (academic achievement) and responsibility.   General standards for selection are established bythe national office of NEHS and have been revised to meet the needs of our school and fall within our strategic goals.  Students are selected to be members of NEHS by a Faculty Council, appointed by the principal and supervised by an additional member of the faculty serving as the chapter adviser.

This group awards the honor of membership to qualified students on behalf of the faculty of the school during each school year.  Our NEHS chapter will conduct its selection procedures during the fall of each school year, from this point forward.  Students in the fourth and fifth grades are eligible for membership.  For the Scholarship criterion, a student must maintain report card grades of As and Bs only. Those students who meet this criterion are invited to complete a Candidate’s Form that provides the Faculty Council with evidence of the candidate’s Responsibility at home, at school, and in the community.
