National Juniors Honor Society
We are proud to announce that the school is starting a chapter of the National Honor Society this year. You can know more about it here www.njhs.us/about/. Membership is based on semester grades and citizenship.
We are happy that several students met our NJHS requirements and were invited to join the society. The advisor, Ms. Hanan, will have an Induction Ceremony for the accepted students next week, insha’Allah. Details will be shared in a separate email with select students and parents. We hope to see more students make the effort and join us next year, insha’Allah.
