NATIONAL ELEMENTARY HONOR SOCIETY
Sponsor: Melanie Vining
Painted Sky is very proud to be one of only a few elementary schools in the state with a chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society!
The National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) was established in 2008 "to recognize elementary students both public and non-public elementary schools for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated personal responsibility, to provide meaningful service to the school and community, and to develop essential leadership skills in the students of elementary schools." (NEHS website www.nehs.org).
Students entering 4th and 5th grades may apply for membership into NEHS. NEHS members meet monthly for regular meetings and perform various service projects both within the school and the community. Membership is both an honor and a commitment. Members are expected to display 4 pillars both in and outside of school: SCHOLARSHIP, RESPONSIBILITY, LEADERSHIP, AND SERVICE.
