I met with approximately one hundred current 7th graders during Advisory today to formally invite them to be a part of our school’s chapter of NJHS. Click on the link below to see the notes I used to deliver all kinds of information to these kiddos. [Again, these are my personal notes I was reading off of — if you are a parent, you might need to get your son or daughter to fill in any grey area for you as needed.]

Finally, if you need clarification or have concerns regarding Tuesday’s Induction Ceremony yet it is after 3:00 PM on Friday, May 14th, please direct your email or phone call to Mr. Burdett. I have a family commitment starting Saturday and cannot promise you that I can get back to you with an answer as speedily as you might need.

CURRENT 8th GRADE NJHS MEMBERS: Due to COVID-related restrictions, I am not permitted to have all of you be a part of Induction that will take place on Tuesday, May 18th. With that said, I still need SIX speakers and TWO ushers. If you are interested in being considered for one of these important roles, I need for you to send me an email stating such. *** Please keep in mind on Induction Day (or at least that morning) you will need to be dressed professionally and appropriately — something like dresses for girls and belted khaki or navy pants with a collared & tucked-in shirt for boys. If I hear back from more than eight of you, I will check discipline records, attendance records, and reach out to your current 8th grade teachers to help me pick the best eight members. We have a quick turnaround on this — I need to hear from you no later than 8:00 AM on Thursday, May 13th if you are interested.

7th grade students who are being considered for National Junior Honor Society met with Mrs. Gingras today during Advisory. The application packet/process was discussed in detail. Students were not given a hard copy of these packets; therefore, students wishing to continue their selection process will need to print out the application and complete it thoroughly. 

Use the link below:

As was stated throughout the meeting several times, no 7th grade student has “made” OMMS’s NJHS; however, the students Mrs. Gingras met with today are being CONSIDERED for this service organization.

All paperwork is due back to your assigned NJHS sponsor (A – M … Burdett and N – Z … Gingras) by Monday, May 10th. Again, applications can be dropped off before school and/or during Advisory. Do not interrupt class time to turn in your paperwork.

Further information will be forthcoming regarding membership into the NJHS for eligible students. We are hopeful that INDUCTION will take place virtually on Wednesday, May 19th. As I get more details and confirmations, I will post more specific information here. Stay tuned by checking back maybe starting around May 12.
