Spring Coffeehouse Volunteer Info

Spring Coffeehouse is right around the corner, and there are plenty of volunteer opportunities coming up to fulfill the mandatory participation requirement and get in some fun service hours!

Friday, 4/28: Coffeehouse poster-making in the Language Plaza (across from Becky’s room, E112) right after school. This should last until about 3:00 and will count for around an hour of school service.

Tuesday, 5/2 – Friday, 5/5: Lunch ticket sales happen this week! Sign-ins for volunteers will be at lunch, meaning that NO prior sign-ups are available – it’s first come, first serve. Five sellers are needed per lunch each of the four days. You will only be signing in for ONE day at a time, so please let other members volunteer as well if they have not gotten their requirement in! Volunteering for ONE lunch period will fulfill your Coffeehouse participation requirement; however, each lunch counts for only 30 MINUTES of school service!

Friday, 5/5 (SHOWTIME!): Sign up for volunteer positions HERE

IF YOU CANNOT VOLUNTEER AT THESE TIMES, you can make flowers to decorate the Black Box! Every set of 10 flowers counts as 30 MINUTES of school service, and fulfills your Coffeehouse requirement. They can be as simple or as decorative as you want 🙂

REMEMBER that if you did not participate in the Spring Blood Drive due to limited space, you must participate in Coffeehouse. Individuals who did not participate in the Blood Drive will be given priority over members who did, but members who participated in the Blood Drive and cannot participate in Coffeehouse will NOT be penalized – we understand that our volunteer space is very limited compared to the number of members! 🙂

New Meeting Updates!

This Tuesday’s (18th) meeting will be held at 7:10 in the GYM! This is new because of our new members! We will be holding Junior elections for Senior Officers and Vice President at this meeting!

We will also be holding an additional mandatory meeting the following Tuesday (25th) also at 7:10 in the GYM where Sophomore elections for Junior Officers will be held – ALL members are expected to attend BOTH of these meetings!

NHS Officers for the 2017-2018 School Year

NHS Officer Nominations for the 2017-2018 school year are NOW OPEN! Please contact an officer or Becky Mazzara to nominate yourself or another current Sophomore/Junior to be:

  • a Junior/Senior Officer
  • the Vice President (current Juniors only)

Please include your nominee’s contact information as well (phone number, email, etc) so we can send them a message about their nomination. They will not be informed about who nominated them. Nominees must accept their nominations by April 18th in order to be considered a candidate.

Newly inducted Sophomores/Juniors ARE ELIGIBLE to nominate or be nominated for an officer position!

Members that accept their nominations will be asked to give a short speech about themselves at the April 18th (VP/Senior Officers) and April 25th (Junior Officers) meetings, and will then be voted on by the group as a whole. Elected officers will be announced at Spring Coffeehouse, which is on May 5th.

Please consider your prospective workload for next year and think carefully about whether or not you or your nominee would be a good candidate and successful NHS Officer. It is an important commitment, but it’s very fun and very rewarding!

Semester 1 Hours Check-In

Hello everyone! As you should know, Semester 1 hours are due Tuesday, January 24 at 3:00 pmno exceptions.

This list is a compilation of all of the hours that have been submitted for Semester 1 thus far. Please double check that you have submitted your required 10 hours. 2 of your hours must have been through NHS, unless you did not submit your summer hours; in that case, you must have at least 5 hours through NHS.

After the submission of Semester 1 hours has closed, the officers will be enforcing consequences for members who have not followed through with the commitments that they made to NHS. These consequences include, but are not restricted to, being kicked out of NHS. Seniors, if this happens to you, you may have to alter your applications to remove NHS as an extracurricular and notify your colleges that you have been kicked out.

If you have concerns about anything, please contact an officer ASAP. We are more than happy to listen to and work with you!
