Our chapter has been busy in these winter months! Prior to the New Year, the last day before break was a busy one for NHS members. We organized and judged an Ugly Sweater Contest in the 6th-12th grade building for our annual "Super Happy Fun Day" and had great participation in all grades!
The 6 winners in the junior/high
school building can be seen below.
Most Hideous - Lane G.
Most Festive - Evan H.
Most Beautifully Tacky - Breanna S.
Most Likely Belonging to Your Grandma - Caylin J.
Still Pretty Ugly - Samantha B.
Best Ugliest Christmas Sweater - Dakota S.
Instead of spending their afternoon enjoying activities with their peers at the high school, NHS members donated their time to visit the elementary instead. During the afternoon of the Friday prior to break, NHS hosted an Upper Elementary Movie Day for 3rd-5th graders. Students enjoyed fresh popcorn (thank you Sports Boosters for letting us use the concession area) while watching The Santa Clause.
The Ugly Sweater contest was also offered to 3rd-5th grade students at the Elementary building in Hermansville. The winners can be seen below -
Most Hideous - Drayden P.
Most Festive - Griffin G.
Most Beautifully Tacky - Lauren F.
Most Likely Belonging to Your Grandma - McKenzie W.
Stilly Pretty Ugly - Ella M.
Most Ugliest Christmas Sweater - Andrew S.

North Central High School held the annual National Honor Society Induction on Sunday, October 21st at St. John Neumann Parish Hall in Spalding. New inductees included seniors Griffin Johnson & Tayler Poupore, juniors Leo Gorzinski & Jasmine Walters, and early admission sophomores Ava Eichhorn, Jaiden Fleetwood, Autumn Gundrum & Chloe Webber.
In order to be selected as a member of the North Central Chapter of NHS, students need to portray the four pillars of NHS: Character, Scholarship, Leadership and Service. Juniors and seniors need to maintain a 3.3 GPA, while early admission sophomores require a 3.5 GPA. NHS members are also required to complete a minimum of 20 service hours per school year.
Returning members have been working on planning this
banquet since the school started. They all did a wonderful job!
The ceremony included an elaboration of the four pillars of NHS by the officers, individual introduction of new members by the current chapter, signing of the registry, the NHS pledge, and a luncheon. Special thank you to the parents for their contributions to the luncheon!
Photos from the ceremony can be viewed in the slideshow below.
New inductees were surprised with a congratulatory gift bag, which included the chapter t-shirts pictured below. These shirts are worn to promote our chapter in the community and while volunteering or facilitating our annual events.
The images below feature the current NHS member with the new
inductee they introduced during our ceremony. Click to enlarge.
All of my photos from the banquet can be found in this google folder.
The Daily Press feature on our banquet can be viewed HERE.
Thank you to all faculty council, school board members and families for attending our banquet. Up next for our chapter is planning our other annual events (hermansville hustle 5k, community project day, etc) and completing community service! Check back for updates!
New chapter t-shirts were worn to school the Monday after the banquet! Thanks again to Moonlight Graphics for printing shirts for all of our annual events!
National Honor Society sponsored a PowderPuff Volleyball tournament as part of Homecoming 2018. Admission for attending the tournament on Friday, October 12th was $1 or 1 canned food item per person. NHS members Brady, Amber, Ethan and Chloe (pictured below) dropped off our canned food collection on Thursday, October 18th to the Senior Center's food pantry in Hermansville. Read the Daily Press article HERE.
NHS members had the chance to earn some service hours by showing their creativity, school spirit, and humor by dressing up for SPIRIT WEEK!
Color Day was also the POWDER PUFF VOLLEYBALL tournament which includes all students 6th grade through Seniors.
The 8th grade won the Junior High Championship this year!
The Seniors were the overall high school champions.
Read the announcement for our Induction Banquet in the Daily Press HERE. Preparation is well underway! All RSVPs are due this week, we have our luncheon menu planned, the ceremony script has been updated, and membership materials will be ordered this week as well! I can't wait to welcome our 8 new members into the chapter!
Shout out to our fabulous National Honor Society Historian for keeping our scrapbook up to date with pages to remember all of our events and accomplishments! You rock Ellie!
All of our NHS officers have specific tasks that are their responsibility. The main job for our Historian is to keep track of what we've done through the year, and document it via our NHS scrapbook. In addition, Ellie is also responsible for creating a Yearly Report summarizing what we've accomplished through out the year as well.
Our application process for the current school year is complete!
Applications were passed out, filled out, turned in, interviews were completed, discussion occurred, and votes have been tallied!
Thank you to all of this year's applicants for your time and efforts.
Congratulations to the following students who will be inducted into
