Thurs., Feb. 27, 2020

If you got all your forms turned in on time last week, eligibility for club membership will be verified soon. If you are eligible, the Induction Ceremony will be held on Weds., June 3. You must have received a 3.5 GPA first semester at Leota, and you must also purchase a $30 ASB membership. This is a mandatory requirement for all NJHS members. Scholarships are available, if needed. Please see your counselor for help with this.

Students who have met all the requirements for membership will be invited to the Induction Ceremony soon. Stay tuned for further information. The program will begin at 6:30 PM in the gym, with a brief reception to follow in the cafeteria. Light refreshments provided. Members will need to arrive by 5:15 for rehearsal, and plan to dress professionally.

You can begin serving your volunteer hours for next year immediately, even if you don't qualify this year. You do not need pre-approval to volunteer, UNLESS the organization is not listed on the right side of this page. If you do need pre-approval, please visit Mrs. Hurley AFTER SCHOOL in Room 623. Please bring a copy of the Activity Information Form for Mrs. Hurley to initial.

Service hours for next school year can be completed any time between Sat., Feb. 15, 2020 and Feb. 2021 (final date TBD).

Next year Club Service will be OPTIONAL. There will be one Club Service meeting in the fall, where officers will be elected. If you choose to attend, the meeting will count toward ONE of your service hours. You will still be required to get at least 12 service hours, with at least 2 hours served at Leota (Club Service cannot be part of your Leota hours, though it will count for ONE your overall hours). It is your responsibility to find a staff member with whom to volunteer for the Leota hours. Please do NOT wait until the last minute, as many things can interfere.

In general, your service needs to be performed at a non-profit organization, and needs to be for underserved and/or disadvantaged populations (to include hospitals, day care facilities, schools, after school boys/girls clubs, homeless populations, eldercare, disabled individuals, animal rescue/care, environmental work, libraries, places of worship, veterans services, and more). Examples of activities that will NOT be considered a service include, but are not limited to, housing a foreign exchange student, participating in performances (such as ballet/dance, music recitals, etc.), helping your neighbor clean their yard, taking tests, playing sports, and other like activities.

When you serve your community service hours, please remember you are representing Leota Middle School --- dress appropriately and be on your best behavior. Thank you for choosing to participate in this valuable club.
