History of NEHS
Welcome to National Elementary Honor Society
The National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) was established in 2008 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals in cooperation with the National Association of Elementary School Principals to recognize elementary students in both public and non-public elementary schools for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated personal responsibility, to provide meaningful service to the school and community, and to develop essential leadership skills in the students of elementary schools.
The Brazos Bend Elementary chapter was established on February 12, 2013. NEHS is a student organization for 4th and 5th grade students.
Selection Criteria and Process
Candidacy. As the first step in the process, the grades you have earned in recent years are reviewed to determine who is eligible for membership. Those students whose grade averages meet the criteria are known as Candidates.
Collecting Candidate Information. Once you have been identified as a Candidate for membership, you will be asked to complete the NEHS Candidate’s Form. This form outlines your accomplishments in the areas of Responsibility, Service, and Leadership. The student and parents will be asked to sign these forms, indicating that the content is complete and accurate.
Teacher Input. The teachers who have taught you will be asked to provide information about you to the selection committee. They may be asked to evaluate your character, citizenship, leadership, and how responsible you have been in class and in other school activities.
NEHS does various service projects throughout the school year. This past October, we had our Pink Pumpkin Challenge which helped raise money and awareness for breast cancer. NEHS did an amazing job and all proceeds were donated to Susan G. Komen of Houston. In November, NEHS had their Coke Tab Collections service project for the Ronald McDonald House. The purpose of this service project is to collect pop tabs to help support families with children in the hospital that stay at the Ronald McDonald House of Houston.
