Information About The National Elementary Honor Society at the Elementary School
The creation of the Elementary School Chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society in 2008 is the fulfillment of a vision of the leadership of the National Association of Elementary School Principals bringing to life a new program to recognize outstanding students in the elementary grades. Since 1921, the National Association of Secondary Principals provided recognition through chapters of the National Honor Society, but NEHS is more than just an honor roll for the school. It is designed to provide age appropriate experiences and relevant lessons for its members. Through NEHS chapter activities that involve members in service to their school and community and the leadership development activities that introduce them to new skills and values, members maintain and extend qualities that earn them selection.
