Message to current members, Update May 19:

Your society faculty sponsors realize that those of you who have not been able to complete your 50 service hours may be anxious about losing your NJHS membership. We want to reassure you that in these extraordinary times, this will not happen. At this time members should turn in their logs as scanned or photographed email attachments to Mrs. Maxson or Mr. Heron, even if they have not completed the 50 hours. We haven't determined the exact schedule for the service award distribution, but rest assured that service awards will be received by members who have earned them.

Action Item for Current Members, March 31, 2020

The NJHS is encouraging all of its members to create an account with the national organization in order to keep in touch now and in future years. To do that, use the link below. Once you have created your account, the national organization will wait for your sponsors to confirm your membership. After that has occurred, your account will become active and you will have access to all the NJHS member functions. You will need the Benton affiliation number, which you can get by emailing Mr. Heron or Mrs. Maxson.
