The National Honors Society here at Elgin will be sending out letters of acceptance no earlier than September 28th 2018. The forms to get in are due by friday, September 21st, to Mr.Ramos. You need to have a 3.0 GPA or better to be eligible to join, and if you get in you need to get ten hours of community service per semester. You can get hours for doing things such as extracurricular activites, chores, or activites that NHS provides, as long as there is a supervisor to sign for the service. Being in NHS looks really good on your college application and could even get you a scholarship.
