The Kenmore East Chapter of the National Honor Society is affiliated with the national organization that has been in existence since 1922 with chapters across the country. Our chapter is a service organization whose members benefit from helping their school community and the community at large through their various activities.
Juniors and seniors who have earned an average of 90 or better are notified in January of their academic eligibility for the Kenmore East Chapter of NHS. The average for juniors is computed by using a weighted average for 9th and 10th grade and a weighted average for the 1st quarter of 11th grade. Senior averages are computed by using the students' weighted class placement average and a weighted average from 1st quarter. Any high school level courses taken in 8th grade are also included in the weighted average. After a lengthy evaluation process, selected members are inducted into National Honor Society.
In order to maintain membership in NHS, students must keep a 90 weighted average and complete 15 hours of service each semester and participate in all NHS sponsored activities such as the Middle School Academic Bee, the Tonawanda Senior Citizen Inter-generational Dance, Adopt an Angel sponsored by Gateway, an Alumni Social, and the spring NHS Walkathon to benefit Renaissance House. They must also attend monthly meetings and have no disciplinary referrals.
Students should strive for high academic averages and become involved in school and community service activities in 9th grade or as soon as possible in order to ensure a favorable rating on service/leadership criteria.
