Next Friday, January 20th, 9:30am
Desert Academy’s 2011-2012 1st Semester Honor Roll, High Honors, National Honors Society, and National Junior Honor Society Assembly will be held next Friday, January 20th at 9:30am. Honor Roll students have received a 3.5 grade point average or better, with no grade lower than a C. High Honors students have received a 4.0 or above. (Please note, middle school students’ report card GPAs only reflect the high school classes that the student is enrolled in, and not their overall GPA, as middle school classes are not weighted. For the ceremony, however, we will calculate the full GPA of all classes).
Students with an Incomplete in any subject are not eligible to qualify for the Honor Roll, NHS or NHJS.
National Honor Society (10-12th grades) and National Junior Honor Society (7-9th grades), have received a GPA of 3.4 or above, with no grade lower than a C, and have submitted a self-nominating form that includes the leadership and community service component of the nomination criteria. NHS and NHJS applicants are then reviewed by the committee and elected to the society corresponding to their grade. The full description of the NHS/NHJS nominating criteria and deadlines were sent in the e-minder in December and is posted on the website.
Parents and students will be notified of their Honor Roll status and the results of the NHS and NJHS. Everyone is welcome to attend this ceremony in honor of their students’ academic achievements for 1st semester. Please contact Tamara Rossi (firstname.lastname@example.org) regarding the Honor Roll and Jocelyne Comstock (email@example.com) regarding NHS and NHJS.
