On Friday, February 28th, during “Read the Day Away” members from LJH’s student council and Tiger Crew traveled to Sallie Humble and Madison James Foster to read to the students and speak to 6th graders about what LJH has to offer! This is one of our favorite initiatives where we get to bridge the gap to some of our feeder schools!
On February 27th, LJH inducted the newest members into this society. The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These five pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1929.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NJHS activities. NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, US Territories, and around the world . Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
As such, NJHS chapters and students are in schools that care not only about student achievement, but also community engagement.
NJHS students and their peers volunteer in their communities at the highest rates and make connecting with and serving within the community a priority.
Tonight, LJH’s travel club, student council and Tiger club hosted the 2nd annual Mardi Gras Ball. The attendees looked stunning in their festive outfits and masks, and the decorating committee out did themselves on the Mardi Gras themed props. Thanks to all the sponsors, students and parents who helped make this event possible.
