NAEA is redesigning the NAHS/NJAHS webpage and needs your input — share the great things your chapter is doing!
1. Do you hold an induction ceremony for your chapter? What do you do? When do you hold your ceremony? Who do you invite? Do you have any traditions? What makes your ceremony special? How do you plan it?
2. What activities does your chapter participate in throughout the year?
3. What advice do you have for a first-time sponsor?
Please note, answers may be used on the NAHS webpage. Please note if we may include your name and the name of your school. You may also email answers or ideas to NAHS@arteducators.org
Thank you for your hard work supporting your chapter!
You do have to pick your battles but is the idea to honor just a few or recognize the achievements of as many as possible? We have a Renaissance program that recognizes students in each department, criteria set by each department. The student must have an overall GPA of 2.5 to begin with to qualify. My NAHS members have to have service hours and been a participating member.
But, as Betti stated below - sometimes you have to pick your battles! There are many ways to honor seniors and the graduation cord during the graduation ceremony is just one of them.
I feel your pain! Years ago I fought that battle, but I decided it was better to keep my job than ruffle my Principal's feathers. My school had long established that only NHS members could wear an honors cord at graduation. I honor my most active NAHS seniors at our Awards day and give them a 'rainbow tassel' at our county-wide annual Induction ceremony.
That is a tough situation. It sounds like the school has aligned all of the honor societies so that cords are given for a specific GPA. Has the teacher worked with the principal to show the constitution adopted by the NAEA? My recommendation would be for the teacher to work with other honor society sponsors to research their national constitutions (Tri-M, Mu Alpha Theta, NHS, etc.) to see what is recommended. Perhaps if a group of teachers aligned together, they might be able to be more effective in working with the principal.
My students earn community service to wear their NAHS cords. It probably helps that we allow students to earn a general community service cord.
Hi NAHS sponsors!
I could use some input on a tough situation... a school has a rule/standard that no student may wear a cord for graduation if he/she has a GPA less than a 3.75.
Any ides that may help justify a chapter's right to wear a rainbow cord at graduation?
I look forward to your thoughts!
