Good luck and congratulations!!!!
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921.Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS and NJHS. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS: Membership in the C.B. East National Honor Society is both an honor and a commitment to the demonstration of the pillars of NHS - scholarship, service, leadership, & character. Maintaining one's membership is dependent upon the continuous demonstration of these qualities that earned each member's selection.
Please note, after induction, all MEMBERS will:
1) Maintain the necessary 3.700000 cumulative weighted GPA.
2) Remain in good standing (adhere to all laws as well as all Central Bucks rules & policies).
3) Pay yearly dues of $20.00.
4) Participate in 20 hours (10 hours per semester) of NHS-sponsored projects or activities with our school and community partners. 15 of the hours MUST be NHS sponsored school events. Students may get a maximum of 5 "flex"hours per year (not semester) by participating in outside community service. Regardless of how hours are fulfilled, all students must complete the digital hours verification form detailing the activity!

What if a student does not meet the membership requirements at any time?
In the event that a member fails to comply with any of these requirements, the East Faculty Selection Council will review his or her membership status with the intent to dismiss. Students whose grades fall below a 3.7 GPA will have one marking period in which to raise his/her grades to be in compliance with our chapter's requirement. A member's rolling cumulative GPA at the end of the next marking period will be used as the benchmark for compliance. Hour requirements are evaluated throughout each semester. Dues requirements must be met by given due dates.
If a Junior fails to meet these requirements, the student may be required to relinquish membership and will not be able to reapply. Any Senior who fails to meet these requirements may be required to relinquish membership and will not be honored as a NHS member at the graduation ceremony.
