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 Lakeview Elementary Chapter was established on February 11, 2016. NEHS is a student organization for 5th grade students.
To be eligible for membership consideration, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 90%. Additionally, candidates must meet high standards of responsibility, service, and leadership. Students are reviewed by a faculty council appointed by the principal. As members of NEHS, these students will now engage in a number of chapter service projects.
NEHS is modeled on its companion organization, the National Honor Society (NHS), which is the nation’s oldest and best-known student recognition program. NEHS was founded in 2008 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, which is also the parent organization for NHS, in partnership with the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) Foundation. Visit www.nehs.org for more information.
The National Elementary Honor Society exists at Lakeview to provide opportunity for students to earn recognition for their academic excellence and to participate in activities that provide service to their school and community. Service projects will include things such as "Pennies for Patients," a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the "Super Bowl of Caring" food drive.
