112 eleventh grade students were recently inducted into the National Honor Society. Criteria for selection include outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership and character.
Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 (on a 4.0 scale) or equivalent standard of excellence, or a higher cumulative average set by the local school's Faculty Council, meet the scholarship requirement for membership.
These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character. Many of these students participated in a number of service activities this year, including collecting and shipping Halloween candy and books in conjunction with the Books for Soldiers program, making over 100 Valentines for children at Blythedale Children’s Hospital, creating bags with books, stuffed animals and blankets for homeless children, and serving as peer tutors in the library during and after school.
Board of Education President Jackie Carbone, Superintendent Dr. Ralph Napolitano, Principal Joseph DeGennaro, and NHS Advisors Suzanne Daria, Erica Knopp and Barbara Williams each commended the following students for their accomplishments:
