Elementary Honor Society

Elementary principals, listen up! There's a new program designed to help elementary schools recognize younger students for outstanding academic success.

The National Association of Elementary School Principals announced this week the creation of a new National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS). The new group is the result of a partnership between NAESP and its sister organization, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, which administers the National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society programs. Currently, there are more than one million students represented in the 50 states, D.C., Puerto Rico and Guam who participate in the NHS and NJHS, plus 536 chapters overseas.

Under the new agreement, any school containing grades 4-6 can establish a National Elementary Honor Society chapter. For more information or to start an application for your school, visit the NEHS Web site.
